The most important precaution is to check the website’s SSL certificate. Never visit websites that do not have SSL certificates. What’s equally important is to check links before you click them. Clicking on unsecured links can result in unauthorized downloads and redirects.
To stay safe online, first, check the address pan for ‘https’ before the website address. Second, always check the website address in your browser’s address bar. Third, never click over links without checking them.
