Phishing is one example of a security threat to pretty much anyone.  Phishing is where a message, usually an email or text, is sent to you  and it may look like a legitimate company/bank reaching out to you.  These messages usually include a link, and these links can have malware  embedded in them. They may also be asking for personal information.   (Borges, 2021) To minimize/prevent this threat include changing passwords regularly,  not clicking on suspicious links, and installing firewalls. (Simister,  2021) Desktops tend to be more secure compared to mobile devices (tablets,  smartphones, laptops, etc.) because of their stationary position making  them easier to guard, and also because they tend to be on one source of  the internet (rather it be Wi-Fi or cable). (Editor, 2019) The practices I use to protect the security of my mobile devices is  to keep software updated, I keep fingerprint/code locks on my phone, and  try to avoid any unsecured networks.
