Chilling yourself in front of your laptop doesn’t necessarily mean you’re really alone. Hackers never rest and always look to your computer for weak places to steal your info. You could let them into your computer without even realizing it by clicking on various banners and pages. A low battery life, your computer’s slowing down, programs that don’t respond or an unexpectedly modified homepage may be some significant indicators that someone else is using it.
