A clean and healthy digital life shouldn't stop at installing and using a security application. Just like in real life, staying healthy involves making lasting changes to your lifestyle. It also means making it a habit to adapt certain practices. While this requires some effort, the benefits are well worth it.
To help you get started on your digital decluttering, we've put together a guide for the most important aspects of your digital life.
Digital clutter in laptops and desktops accumulate through daily use. Whether at work or at home, things can get messy if you're not careful.
A little disorganization shouldn't be that alarming though. Being sloppy with bloated applications and critical files, on the other hand, is.
What to Do
The best way to get rid of clutter is to throw it out. Clearing your browser's cache and uninstalling unnecessary programs free up space on your system and remove potential security risks.
Unused programs are often left unpatched, retaining vulnerabilities that bad guys can exploit. It's important to always patch and update programs that you decide to keep. The same applies to your OS.
System Fast Facts
Like desktops or laptops, mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets are also prone to digital clutter. In fact, the clutter that accumulates in mobile devices can have more repercussions than that in your desktop or laptop. Why? Because mobile devices have less computing power to work with.
Mobile devices also retain loads of personal information that may end up in the wrong hands due to mismanagement.
What to Do
The more apps you have installed, the less space you have to play around with. Hoarding apps affects your device's processing speed and battery life. Some features and permissions also add to the strain.
Maximizing your device's security settings is a good idea especially since it sends your personal data to third parties when connected to the web.

Social networking plays a huge role in your digital life. It's no longer just a convenient way to connect with friends and family.
Your public profile tells the whole world who you are in a nutshell. Your privacy though definitely worth protecting is, therefore, at stake.
What to Do
Just like choosing friends, consider trimming down your contact list. This minimizes risks of falling for scams that make use of malicious links. It also helps ensure your online privacy. 
Removing rogue apps also helps secure your accounts. These are, after all, often responsible for personal data theft. Cleaning up your posts and photo albums improves your online image, too. Consider deleting pictures you don't want anyone to see or share with others.
Before posting anything, ask yourself: "Am I comfortable with anyone seeing this?" If your answer is "No," don't do it. Save yourself the hassle of cleaning up afterward.
