The Internet has come a long way since its infancy, changing our life to a huge extent and altering the way we look at things.
It is constantly evolving and there are gigantic steps of progress every single day.
However, along with the progress and the benefits you get from the Internet, there are also hazards.
Online security threats are becoming more sophisticated by the minute and there are people who wish to compromise your privacy and security.
