If a picture is worth a thousand words, a video is worth a million. Muscat Daily’s video series ‘Explained’ analyses current issues and fact checks dubious social media buzz. The series also puts readers’ questions to experts in the related fields, who explain their point of view.
In this edition, Tariq Hilal al Barwani, IT expert and ethical hacker ‘Explained’ the connection between technology and human bonding. Barwani is optimistic that technology will add to relationships but he said at the same time people need to be careful of their online time and downloading free applications.
“Definitely, there is a threat to privacy with the overuse of technology. These days, we are too much into technology, connected with smart devices round the clock. We often share too much of our data and information through these devices including mobile phones and wrist bands. One must be very careful when downloading free applications; they are not free, they trade with your information and data. Most of them trade with your data.”
He added that one of the best precautionary measures is to change the passwords periodically and avoid using same passwords in all services.
