As Reliance on Technology Increases, OnlineVirusRepair.com Urges People to Protect their Computers from Computer Viruses and Spyware
New reports provide insight on how amount of time spent using technology can impact susceptibility to viruses and spyware.
San Luis Obispo, CA (PRWEB) March 08, 2013
Broadcast communication regulator OfComm released a report stating the average person spends an astounding 7.5 hours per day utilizing technology. That means people are spending 45% of their waking hours using technology. Dan Steiner, founder of OnlineVirusRepair.com stated, “The report shows how tied we are to technology. As people´s lives move into the virtual world they become increasingly vulnerable. No sensible person would leave their home, valuables and sensitive information out for people to steal, but that is what is happening in a virtual sense. People are leaving their computers exposed to threats even though they are full of sensitive information. It´s like leaving your family safe unlocked with the door open. The amount of time people spend browsing the internet has caused the virus removal industry to grow rapidly. ”
With more and more people leveraging technology to help them through life, the question is — are people too reliant on computers and technology? Steiner says no, but with a caveat. “Technology is a great tool, but the more people rely on it – the bigger target they become. The right protective mechanisms have to be put in place. In addition, people should have a resource available to remove viruses and malware should their computer be infected.”
