Are you the type of person with over 60 folders, documents, photos and unused software icons on your desktop? Relax, you’re not alone, and there’s a dedicated day to encourage and persuade you to take a moment to sort everything out.
Today is National Clean Your Virtual Desktop Day, a moment with the sole purpose of ensuring that your desktop is decluttered and organized.
Why? Because a clean desktop enhances your productivity, helps your computer run more efficiently, saves time and increases your cybersecurity and privacy.
Cleaning your desktop isn’t hard; just take a look at these simple practices that can help keep your virtual workspace all spick and span:
Pro tip: Never leave your sensitive information, documents, or photos of your SSN, driver’s license and other valuable information discarded on your desktop for anyone to take. Increase your privacy and cybersecurity by always encrypting and storing sensitive data to protect you from financial compromise and legal issues.
Don’t forget to spread the word to your friends, family and coworkers, and while you’re at it, ask if any less tech-savvy individuals need your help organizing their desktops.
After you’re done organizing, why not make sure that no malicious software is hiding on your device? Use a Bitdefender security solution to perform a full system scan and check for any annoying malware, spyware or privacy risks.
