There will come a time when you feel that your computer is slowing down, becoming less efficient than it used to be, and what comes to mind is to either recycle or sell off the parts to get a brand-new computer. However, is it safe to do so?

Cybercriminals are constantly looking for new ways to manipulate victims online. With the right software in place and a general awareness of online threats, you can feel more guarded against an attack. Here’s a handy checklist to help you minimise your risk of being compromised.
