FC: Ways to Keep your information private.
1: First let me explain some terminology that I will use throughout this mixbook | Cookies- Information that is stored on your computer from websites you visit. These can also track your website visiting habits. Tracking- A way to see what your doing online. Virus- An online code that can take your information and may even shut down your computer.
2: Limit the number of ads you click on. Ads=cookies= information given away.
3: Uncheck the box in websites that will allow them to save/remember your passwords and usernames. This lessens the amount of information tracking cookies or viruses can collect if one gets into your computer.
4: Use CCcleaner or another type of malware(protection software) to regularly scan and remove unwanted cookies and viruses.
5: Use a different site for your email then your browser. For example, Google could be your browser, and Yahoo could be your email.
6: Avoid downloading toolbars. It gives the company access to personal information.
7: Uncheck the box that allows email companies to send you future emails. This helps reduce Spam.
8: Use a pseudonym to help hide your identity from people. This can help you keep your anonymity.
9: All of these suggestions are great advice, I personally use most of them, but there are always more things to try and experiment with so feel free to do so.
