All activity on the Internet is tied with work through accounts - mail, social networks, online stores, etc. All of them need reliable means of protection, starting with the password that the user sets himself, and ending with those security protocols that are provided by the Internet site. The information contained in the accounts is important not only for its immediate owners, but also for hackers - they can decently profit by selling it. Let's try to figure out exactly what kind of data interest cyber criminals, how the accounts are hacked, and how this can be saved.
What interests hackers in your accounts?
Everything starting from personal correspondence and ending with passwords, payment card details and whereabouts. In the future this information can be used for:
fraud with banking operations,
hacking of personal devices
subsequent sale to interested parties and companies that use it, for example, when setting up their marketing campaigns and promotions.
Often hackers are engaged in hacking accounts for their own excitement and practice of skills. The low culture of Internet security gives them a wide field for creativity.
How do criminals gain access to accounts?
It often happens that to hack into an account, you do not even need to use some sophisticated scheme. Hackers do not need to spend much time and effort, because so far among the majority of users are common:
frivolous attitude to the selection of a password,
use of the same code phrases on several resources,
following suspicious links and spam from mail
failure of password managers.
Can I save my account, website and online store from such hacking?
To do this, it is enough to monitor the activity of users and the technical characteristics of their Internet site. Digital fingerprint technology monitors information about:
user input on the site,
the devices they use,
changes in profiles and user accounts,
user behavior on the site
frequency and duration of sessions
geolocation, IP, etc.
Such an imprint makes it possible in an automatic mode to save users' accounts and their website or online store from all the mentioned types of hacking.
