Five things you should know about Online Privacy

Hi guys I am Kartik Parmar, As you know that days Online Privacy is the most important thing we should keep in mind for our own safety. Many websites/Blogs get attacked daily due to improper online security. Such as the incident of famous  labnol.org which was hacked.

We should keep in mind before doing something, that Online privacy and security is the most important for our website/blog. Today I will write Five things you should know about Online Privacy. I hope these measures will help you.

WEB BROWSER SECURITY

A web browser is your gateway to the internet, so keep it current. Updates plug holes that attackers could use to capture your web history, passwords, and more. Browsers such as Google Chrome can update automatically as your work.

SECURE BROWSING

On services such as Gmail and Facebook, turn on secure browsing in your account settings to prevent digital eavesdropping. If you see the prefix “HTTPS” in your address bar, it’s working. For an extra layer of security enable two-step verification. It’s a setting for Gmail, Facebook, and some other services that ask for two passwords when you log in: your usual password and a randomly generated password that’s sent to your phone.

About the website you Browsing

Some sites and apps allow you to register using your Facebook and Twitter accounts, but you share a lot of information about yourself that way. Use an alternate e-mail address, and give a fake name to keep your identities separate. Read Privacy Policies, Websites such as “Terms of service; Didn’t Read” (tosdr.org) explain popular sites’ legalese in plain language.

Ads keep searching what you browsing

Why do ads on the other websites seem to know what you’ve been searching for on Amazon or Google? The ad itself places web-tracking files called cookies on your computer that remember what sites you visit. Ads on other websites can read those cookies, too. Clear browsing data at end of a session or use a tool such as CCleaner to remove old cookies.

Some sites ask for access to your webcam or location only the first time you use them. For more control over how or when your data is collected, most devices have settings that let you revoke access when you’re done.

Use Vpn or Virtual servers

Consider a virtual private network or VPN. Apps such as TunnelBear encrypt your activity in a protective shell, useful for tasks like banking away from home. Be smart when you are about to use unprotected wireless networks. It’s not hard for someone to eavesdrop on unencrypted data you’re sending.

Just keep in mind the above instructions which I provided for your own safety. This information I highly prefer for me and also for you its important for safer browsing.
