ICQ security (how to secure your asya), all that concerns protection ICQ numbers

Many faced with the fact that someone from friends or you stole the number of asi ...
1. No when do not save the password in ICQ clients (special attention if you are behind a public computer)

2. But in fact it is "1" not to put simple passwords - it is desirable to put eight-valued

a) Example : V * w (0f @%

b) Example : ®> w (0f @% (use special characters) +> | | d? ®? |:

more information:

Press and hold the left key [Alt], and on the numeric keypad type four-digit code.

Examples: Alt + 0149 • or Alt + 0169 © or Alt + 0174 ® or Alt + 0167 § or Alt + 0153 ™ or Alt + 0136 € or Start / Programs / Accessories / System Tools / Symbol Table

3. If possible, bind to a mailbox, for example

rambler.ru (this service is also on bigmir.net ) we put in there a box user @ rambler.ru in the settings of the mailbox itself there is such a graph

(Rambler ID)
Your personal data and password for personal services and Rambler services you can change on Rambler ID.
there we press "Get ICQ number", but there is an option inside it to indicate your existing asya (that's what we need) and then everything is so very clear - what it gives us:
first password on the ace and on the box is the same. If you left asya you change the password on the box and it automatically changes in the ace (which we needed).

4. Do not use the IE browser and others running on its engine.

I personally use firefox to whom you like the opera and many other things, the main thing is not to use it.

5. Install the firewall

since only a properly configured Firewall guarantor of relative security, and the configuration of the case is subtle, then for beginners, so I would advise an anti-hacker from Kaspersky.

6. No matter what kind of antivirus you use, the main thing is that he updates the databases as often as possible. I prefer NOD32

7. It's also very important to update Windows.

8. Do not run suspicious files on your computer a la the Internet crane and do not click on any links sent to you via ICQ or e-mail by unknown or unfamiliar people. ( This is one of the basic rules of safe work on the Web, but some people, for some reason, it often seems that their ICQ-friend, with whom they have been communicating for two whole days, can not send them a link to the virus (or the page infected with the virus) .Maybe, be vigilant! )

9. Do not use official clients under ICQ Lite! Always use the new version of the client!

I hope that someone will still support me and write about other opportunities (as detailed as possible)
