Hello Ricky, |
I agree, potentially, that no-one on the Net is safe from these hackers, and it will only get worse as more people go Online, if hackers are not dealt with; but what will happen when all the banks are demolished and the only way to deal with money is Online? It won't be long.
My daughter had her money replaced into her account by the bank, but that is not a solution to the hacker problem, in fact, it seems more like an enticement to them, as they’re getting away with it – easy money indeed.
Family have offered me free, hand-me-down I-phones, but I declined, as I see them as addictive and too intrusive. There’s no privacy Online anymore, as there’s so many companies collecting data on us, often without our consent.
My wife has a cheap mobile that only does the basics. Our daughter-in-law was about to send images to my wife’s mobile, when my son stopped her just in time, and said with a smile, tongue-in-cheek, “My mam’s mobile can’t receive images - if you try to send those photographs to her mobile it will probably blow up!” Ha-ha!
