12. Bloatware Nightmare
Virtually every electronic device comes with "free" pre-installed software. Ask yourself one question: Why is anything free?
IT Security Tip: REMOVE these from your laptop, tablet or smartphone
Like it or not, device manufacturers LOVE to stuff your brand-new PC, tablet or phone full of “free” applications (they get paid to do it, so you’ve got a slim chance of getting one without a side of spamware). But clutter is the enemy of a speedy PC, and outdated apps are a breeding ground for hackers; so if you’re not using a particular software on a regular basis, it’s best to REMOVE it completely. That way you don’t have it sucking up processing speed AND leaving the door open to hackers and malware.
