Do Not Click On That Link!

What’s the problem with clicking on a bad link? Sometimes, even without knowing it, you will give the owners of that site access to your personal information or even your entire computer with all its data, passwords, and business-related content. Data means money. You and your information are big dollar signs to the bad guys.

Whether through emails, texts, websites
or even while having fun on Facebook,
hackers and other evil people
will try to get you to click on their destructive links.

It will let you know if it has hosted malware in the past 90 days.
