ELI5: Explain Like I'm 5

Computer security

Computer security is like making sure your house is safe. When you come home, you lock the door and set the alarm so that nobody can get inside and take your stuff. Computer security helps make sure that hackers, or bad guys, can’t get into your computer or phone, and steal your information or mess it up. You can protect your computer and phone by using a password or having special programs running all the time that watch for hackers and stop them from getting in.
