To ensure you can avoid today's scale of online threats, take our Cyber Mindfulness Quiz, which scores you on how cyber mindful you are and provides tips and tricks to help you better protect yourself.

There are many things we do online without thinking too much about them. We are often in such a hurry to accomplish necessary tasks online, or engrossed in what we are doing, that we open ourselves up to risks and cyber threats we might not be aware of.

Most people aren’t aware of how easily they could become a victim of cybercrime, or why they would be a target. The truth is that the online world is evolving fast and everyone with a digital footprint has something valuable cybercriminals crave - personal data. 

Ultimately, though, the number one cyber threat for the general public is not phishing, ransomware, or malware from cybercriminals who want your data, it is a lack of ‘cyber mindfulness’, with many carelessly using the internet and their devices without thinking about the threats they could face or walk right into.

Mindfulness has become extremely popular of late with many taking the time to reflect during the Covid-19 pandemic, but how "cyber mindful" are you?

As a global leader for digital security and privacy products, Avast has a deep understanding of the scale of threats online and we want to help you become more cyber mindful to ensure you can avoid these types of threats.

So, we have created a Cyber Mindfulness Quiz which scores you on how cyber mindful you are and provides tips and tricks to help you better protect yourself. Try it out and see how you do!
