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!

12: Always check a websites privacy policy before you EVER give any personal information!

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
