How to not get hacked

Postby braldee » 2018-10-07 23:00

Hi guys.
I am not really that much of a technie so sorry if i missed imoortsmt points in protecting myself.

I have uvnc and had a good password set (admin properties is where I placed the pw - don’t know if there is another location. . Apparently, I got hacked and I don’t know how!
They were accessing my Amazon and PAYPAL and used my funds...

Firewall is turned off and virus protection is off so I can access viewer if I need to from my phone or another pc.

Can I add another layer of password? Is there such thing or possibly only allow my phone or specific computer to view this computer that got hacked. I had to close port for now cause I’m terrified of not being able to protect it properly.

Hope you can guys could advise me.

Make sure you select a plugin

Press config and add a long password (passphrase)

Alternative you can create a key, after creation you need to cop the viewer key to the same folder as vncviewer.exe

Start the Viewer with encryption enabled
