If you are not technology savvy then you might be outsmarted by your computer believe it or not. The fact is that many companies especially those publishing content online keep tabs on your whereabouts and probably know a lot more about you than you would like to share. Unfortunately, there’s no easy way to opt out of many ways of being tracked. In this post I’m going to offer some ways for enhancing your privacy when going online.
Most browsers have a number of settings which allow you to control to certain degree how far your browser would be able to share private information. Many websites have malware which can run in the background which can easily access information from the computer. By tweaking the security settings, you can disable certain scripts from running. Also, I recommend installing a firewall software which will enhance the protection. Some virus software already has firewall functionality built in.
