Avoid Being Tracked on your Laptop, Phone and Fitness Tracker

Posted by Gulf South Technology Solutions on Feb 12, 2018 11:00:00 AM

Let's face it, we're all giving up some of our privacy in the 21st century. As much as you may value your privacy, your personal information is in the hands of computer makers, websites, corporations, politicians, government agencies, hackers and who knows who else? While the internet has made all of our lives better, the one downside is that it seems everyone is collecting information about you and sharing it with everyone else. The good news is that you can significantly limit the amount of private information they collect, whether you're using a laptop, smartphone, or fitness tracker. Often that starts with the information you allow them to collect when you're first setting up these devices. Take a moment, and really read through each step in the setup before check-marking anything.

It's easier to protect your privacy by restricting what a company can collect than going back and trying to reclaim your privacy.
