Most of the cyber criminals commit cybercrime to make money by targeting individuals, the impact of this type of Cybercrime is that it is very difficult to pick out the person who did the illegal impact. The impact of Cybercrime can be devastating due to the high risk of data loss and financial impact.

And to overcome from these criminal activities:

  1. we should always keep up to date to account like having a regular check of account, also update the system regularly.

  2. user kind of password which is unique and strong like including numbers, characters, symbols, ration for complexity.

  3. enable multifactor authentication means to keep a separate code while logging in an app, giving a text message aur getting a physical digital key that can connect to your device.

  4. Using a public Wi-Fi in public area, if you get connected to a Wi-Fi like in public area like restaurants, office. Over that you can use the free browser like tor which can secure communication from a network, to encrypt traffic and camouflage of what are you doing online. Using of virtual private network to encrypt all your internet traffic it will make the hacker difficult to spy on you aur l of wide range free and paid VPN options.

In short, we conclude that we should always be caution, towards a social networking site, and whenever any these types of Cybercrime take place an individual or in a group it needed to be reported as soon as possible, so that the cybercriminal could not perform the further crime with other individual persons. It is true that no person or an organisation or a computer get fully 100% percent secured but in today's time there are lot many technologies are there which can secure a person's identity without any fail, and the last thing is that a person should always be caution towards their online networking sites, their surroundings, always check to their accounts of bank, as well as their social networking accounts.
