FC: How you can limit what companies find out about you digitally. | By:Maddie Knowles
1: Avoid downloading multiple search engines. The more engines you have the more people or companies can find out about you.
2: Disable cookies in your settings, removing these will deactivate the ability to store the websites and data online.
3: Limit the amount of ad-ons you click. Even though you may think it's appealing they could be phishing for your information.
4: While I was online searching for photos, I realized they were showing an add for another website I was on. Therefore that goes to show they were tracking me.
5: Unsubscribe from websites that send you emails. Sometimes when you say I want you to send me emails there will be spam.
6: Make your domain name private. Don't allow others to find your actual name.
7: Disable your location settings. Companies that are searching for your information can try and give you a lot of local places around you.
8: Find websites or apps that block pop-up ads. The more ads the more companies are trying to target you.
9: Don't allow websites to save your information. Such as remember login, don't except it!
10: When you are talking to someone make sure the website can't access what you say.
11: Avoid websites who track everything you do, to find out more about you!
13: Have a anti- virus software that protects you from spy-ware.
14: Never just give your email to a company, investigate the company before hand.
15: Be careful and limit the amount of information you give to other websites.
16: If you do all of these things you will limit what others can find out about you digitally
