Have you ever had a nightmare where you see all your data or money being stolen just because you had unfortunately logged into an insecure server? Well, if you are living in these countries like Korea Democratic People’s Republic, Chad or Niger then bad dream of yours might just come true. As in these countries there is a strong possibility that you may hardly come across a secure internet server.
According to a World Bank data of 2018, in these countries and some others, especially African nations, there were zero secure internet servers per one million people. So, people living in these countries are often affected with identity theft, computer breakdowns and virus attacks, just some of the risks that are associated with using unsecured internet servers.
