Are you concerned about your online security? With more data breaches occurring daily, it’s crucial to protect yourself with these simple tips.
This infographic is a comprehensive look at how you can reduce your online visibility to protect your privacy, but still be seen by your family and friends. From browsing the internet to safety on social media platforms, you don’t need to be a technical genius to lessen your online risk.
For example, you can go into the incognito mode to disable your browser’s tracking tools. Plus, browser settings allow you to block external apps. Tighten your security levels on social media networks, like SnapChat, Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, with a few clicks.
You don’t have to leave the grid to disappear from hackers and unscrupulous businesses who exploit you and your information for their gain without your knowledge. However, it’s critical to protect your data on each platform you use.
Unfortunately, these big corporations don’t always have our best interests at heart. As we’ve seen from the multiple data breaches, there are times that consumers aren’t told about the hack until it was too late. Repairing your credit and personal information after a data hack is scary. By locking down your data now, you’ll save yourself a bigger headache later.
