How to protect your data from scammers: 3 simple rules

Feb. 3, 2021

Remote desktop solutions are useful and handy. You can get or give help remotely or connect to a more powerful office computer.

You just need to download Remotix and - voila, information, help and necessary tools become closer. To get help, you just need to tell a friend, colleague, or IT-specialist the computer ID and the access code generated by Remotix Quick Connect in a pop-up window.

But remember that the Remotix QC access code is just as important information as your credit card details or Apple ID password, and in no case should it fall into the fraudsters’ hands.

You can only give the access code to trusted people, those for whose help you asked yourself. Every time someone asks you for a remote access code to connect to your computer using Remotix, make sure it's not a scammer.

If a stranger introduced himself as an employee of an insurance company, bank or a representative of your mobile operator, immediately call your manager of these organizations at the usual phone number and report an attempt to connect.

Most likely, in this way a scammer is trying to get your personal data.

So, to protect your computer from unauthorized connections, follow three simple rules:

  1. Never give your access code to strangers;
  2. Before giving access to anyone, make sure it's not a scammer. Call that specialist, friend, colleague, you want to give access to and make sure that it is he who connects to your computer.
  3. Keep the access code as carefully as the password from the e-mail or the credit card PIN code.
