Create a dedicated administrator account on your computer

If you log in as admin on your computer for day-to-day use, you leave your whole system vulnerable to  infiltration. Should a hacker gain access to your admin account, they’ll be able to track, install and change pretty much anything they want. Instead, create a separate, dedicated administrator login that you only use when you have to, like if you’re installing things. That way, if you download something malicious it’ll be confined to a standard user account and have less chance of getting into administrative controls.
