Do not be surprised to see warnings about data being stolen as scare tactics are effective with less computer savvy users. A phone number would also be flashing somewhere, which would supposedly lead you to tech-support. When you run into these kinds of alerts, bear in mind that legitimate software or security companies will not ask you to contact them through some random phone number. So if you see such advertisements, alleging to come from Apple or Microsoft, know that it’s a scam. The scammers would attempt to fix a non-existent problem on your device, for which of course, you would be charged.
