Open the extracted folder and locate the executable file. You can make a shortcut to the file on your desktop
Start DS4 windows by clicking on the executable file.
DS4 windows will find your connected PS4 controller and may give a prompt to download additional software needed to make the PS4 controller work. This will only happen if you are doing this for the first time.
After additional software have been downloaded and installed, reboot your PC
Make sure your PC’s Bluetooth is active, then press the PS button on your PS4 controller to connect.
Start DS4 windows and it will immediately activate your PS4 controller for gaming. If properly connected, the PS4 controller light will show boldly.
To check that the controller is working perfectly you can click on TEST CONTROLLER on the DS4 windows interface.
It will take you to a webpage where you can test your controller.
Note that the DS4 windows software makes the Windows PC think that the PS4 controller is an Xbox 360 controller.
Always understand that your computer, phones or private information can be hacked. Take precautions in whatever you do in this regard. Encrypt, use PIN or password to protect your sensitive data.
Use antivirus and other security software packages.
On your computer devices, always endeavor to install and use antivirus and similar security packages. In some cases, you can install them for free. For instance Windows based PCs come with a free but very powerful security software called Windows Security. Most high end android phones come with free premium antivirus and encryption software.
Encrypt sensitive data
Always encrypt sensitive data. Encryption protects your data against unauthorised access. Do not transmit sensitive information except it is encrypted.
Use HTTPS when working with sensitive information on a website.
Never transmit sensitive information unless on a website except it is using SSL/TLS encryption, and the page loads with HTTPS, not HTTP.
Back up often
Always back up sensitive data regularly so that in the event of a computer crash or hacker attack, you can recover without any troubles.
Do not share account login details with people
Do not share your login details of sensitive accounts with people you don’t trust. If possible, don’t share your login details with anyone.
Use proper authentication
Avoid use of complex hard to remember passwords.
Don’t overshare on social media
Use social media wisely, mind the type of information you post on sites such as facebook twitter, instagram and so on.
Use public/school/company Wi-Fi Safely
While public Wi-fi is good, do not use them to transfer sensitive data as these public networks are not as safe as private networks. Also these type networks are closely monitored.
