Worried About Your Website Getting Hacked? Google Tips to Protect it
We’ll show you 4 very useful tips that’ll keep your website from being hacked.
In the previous year, hacking shot up experiencing a mammoth-sized 180% increase in the number of sites hacked. Looking at this, Google coined up its #NoHacking campaign that’s going strong even today. Looking ahead, there are more tips that Google would want us to follow in order to avoid hacking. Read each of them thoroughly.
First in line is Password Security
If we see around us, password is used by every individual or company and every password contains a combination of letters, numbers, and symbols. But looking at the current scenario, Google tells us that we require more than this.
A longer password is hard to guess. Therefore, length is an important feature. Then comes similarity, which we need to avoid. The same password shouldn’t be used across multiple platforms. Adding a 2-factor authentication is also very necessary and helpful to strengthen your account’s security, states Google.
Updating your Software
Updated software is well tuned up and makes it more difficult to be hacked. Outdated software can easily be hacked due to updated means of hacking programs.
Efficient use of a Hosting Provider
We advise you to make the best use of a hosting provider, asking them to help you keep hackers miles away from your website and to support you whenever called for with regards for an urgent hack issue.
Those who manage their own server, we suggest you to keep all systems set to take care of any problems that might arise.
Galvanize Google into action
If you find your website embroiled in any manner, you’d have Google providing you with an array of services that’d notify you about the problem. We’ll help you with other tools along with other alerts by Google that’ll point out and notify you about suspicious results. Spammy terms and hacked content or website ads could also be targeted and taken care of if they appear on the website you’ve visited.
