What are the disadvantages of computers?
Computers have become a part of our lives and a large number of people spend more time online than offline. While computers definitely have a large number of benefits, there are several disadvantages as well. With so much personal and financial data now in digital form, our finances and personal lives are always at risk of data theft. A large number of celebrities learned this in 2014 when their personal pictures were released. Apart from security concerns, prolonged exposure to computer screens is not good for eyes or overall growth and development. Computers also use a lot of electricity, generate large amounts of heat, and could be potentially hazardous to our environment, if disposed of inappropriately. A number of other concerns, such as job loss and diminished human interactions, also exist.
Hope this helps.
