The best safety tips for users

Simple tips and instructions from experienced security experts

While the “good” and “bad” security experts are constantly racing each other for the latest security holes – some to exploit them, others to secure them – we “normal” users are sometimes slightly lost.

Hardly anyone gets around the use of security-relevant technologies, neither professionally nor privately. The knowledge of the dangers “from the internet” is also spreading more and more – together with the unedifying insight that we end users are the weakest link in the security chain.

Knowledge is power! Therefore, we collect information and tips for non-experts to secure terminals, to create awareness and thus to recognise dangers more easily and quickly. With our current warnings, expert tips and background information you can protect yourself against the most common attacks – without any additional technical equipment or previous knowledge!
