    Yes I agree with you so it is important for us to install anti virus software for us to not corrupt our computer with other harmful viruses. What I did to my computer system is that I always installed anti virus software on my computer and put some back up disk on my computer so that I cannot lose any important data.

      An antivirus is the first line of defence, you need to have one that's good, but not only that, you also need to keep it up to date, that way it can fight off newer threats to you device. Keeping the operating system you use to date is algo a good way to keep it safe, Securing you network is also a must, try to not go on open wifi, just one you own or trust. Also and probably one of the most important for me, common sense, don't click on things that look too good to be try, because it most likely is and you just opened the door of your device for anything to enter.

          Well stated,that disabling of third party permission on ones device is very importance,it will block out download from other sources.I try as much as possible to download from my playstore at least one can be sure of the apps there not the one that are randomly gotten from the internet.

              Need to be more careful. Sometimes antivirus is not working. And its really a trouble getting virus to my device. They can access all your private emails and hack your files. And they might get some private information. Today technology is really scary so before clicking links online you have to make sure that it won't damage your phone.

                  Its true. Some anti-viruses are not functioning and does not protect your device from malwares. Some also needs to be bought and when set up. It will automatically be blocked or destroyed.

                    Better to get all download from ones app store or play store to avoid downloading from links online which introduces viruses and malware's and some times get one private information out there. You made a good point there I believe if we put all these precautions in place then we might be able to get viruses away which makes our devices malfunction a times.

                        Virus are gotten from infected files,videos,apps and audios.So it important that we should always have some security software in place to curb this malware,that one our precious files don't get corrupted or our phones don't malfuction quickly.

                          In one informal seminar in the office that I attended, the lecturer from an anti-virus company said that one way of getting your computer infected by a virus is by going to porn sites. That raised a howl from the participants because we were wondering why the porn site is singled out. The lecturer explained that some people who are against porn sites are doing the infecting so people will be turned off. Some months after, I had read an article in a technical magazine that malware is prevalent in porn sites. Again, that issue is getting to be interesting. Anyway, one good measure to make your computer safe is by installing an updated anti-virus software. In roaming the internet you have to be discerning with the strange sites that you are accessing.

                            On my computer I heavily rely on the windows defender to keep away any sort of malware which has worked properly for the period I have been using windows 8 and 10. However on my mobile devices I always have an antivirus installed so that I can easily keep off malware and I never browse on unsecured networks. They are full of viruses some of which can ruin your phone to a point of no recovery. The apps I install are only the verified kind as well.

                              For me to protect my device, I installed an anti-virus software which is Kaspersky. I have this software for a year and a half and it is doing great! We also need to avoid clicking any links that they send to our emails especially if it comes from an unfamiliar sender. Those links may contain a virus that can damage your device. And always make sure that your anti-virus software is updated.
