Tip of the Week: Using These Websites Can Help Preserve Your Privacy

Tip of the Week: Using These Websites Can Help Preserve Your Privacy

Everyone has a right to privacy. However, with the popularity of social networks, the Internet is a very hard place to remain a private individual. Digital communication is everywhere. Cybercrime has become a fairly regular event. This week’s tip of the week takes a glance at three websites that you can use to help enforce your right to privacy.

Have I Been Pwned
This website is a great tool that allows users to securely enter their email address and run a search to determine if their account has ever been involved in a data loss or cybercrime event. With nearly 4 billion comprised records in their data base, it can’t hurt to check up on yourself every now and again.

Account Killer
Many people have at least one or two old email accounts that are no longer used and all but forgotten. However, there is a chance that these out-of-sight, out-of-mind accounts could give a hacker the information they need to find a vulnerability and exploit your information.

DuckDuckGo
Just because you don’t want to leave a trail of breadcrumbs doesn’t necessary mean that you’re doing something unsavory. The fact is that anonymous browsing does have its purpose. For example, many travel websites will offer lower pricing on flights when they can’t see where you’re located. Or maybe you want to search for a surprise birthday gift on a computer that is shared by everyone in a household.

Truthfully, when it comes to digital privacy issues, it is much easier to take steps to prevent issues from happening than it is to try and erase the incident from the Internet. The Internet never forgets. Learn more tips and hints about data security and best practices here.
