Tip of the Week: Preserve Your Privacy With These 3 Websites

Tip of the Week: Preserve Your Privacy With These 3 Websites

With the explosive popularity of social networking, the Internet seems to be a less private place than ever. With both communication and cyber crime rising in commonality, online privacy seems to be turning into a less attainable goal than ever. However, for this week’s tip, we’ll review some of the tools out there that can help you fight for your right to privacy.

Account Killer
How many email accounts have you accumulated in your life? How many do you still currently use? Chances are, the first number is much larger than the second, which means that you have plenty of potential vulnerabilities lying around for a hacker to find and exploit. Account Killer does exactly what it says on the box, allowing you to delete unused accounts and shore up potential vulnerabilities.

Have I Been Pwned
This website gives users an outlet to check if one of their online accounts has ever been involved in a cybercrime or breach event. By securely entering their email address, they can run a search of Have I Been Pwned’s database of nearly 4 billion compromised records to establish if any of their accounts may have been compromised, and which ones were. This one may be one to run periodically, as you never know when one of your accounts may have been involved in a breach.

DuckDuckGo
While it may have a questionable reputation, anonymous browsing has some uses for those doing a search online that they don’t want someone to see later. For example, anonymous browsing can enable you to search for a gift for someone else with access to the computer without fear of their discovering your activity. This variety of browsing can also land the lowest rates for airfare, as travel websites will often offer better deals when they are unsure where you are originally located.

At the end of the day, it is much simpler to avoid digital privacy issues than it is to fix them after the fact. After all, the Internet has a very long memory.
