Currently, online privacy is more crucial than ever. Companies collect and use our personal data increasingly aggressively, making us constantly question whether it’s worth sharing and allowing them to manage it. On the other hand, cyber attacks are becoming more frequent, leaving us vulnerable.
That’s why today we want to share a series of actions you can take to protect your privacy online:
- Be aware of what you share: Before sharing any personal information online, consider if it is truly necessary. The less you share, the better it is for your privacy.
- Use a VPN: This encrypts your internet traffic and directs it through a remote server, helping to protect your privacy and prevent tracking.
- Keep your devices updated: Software updates often include security patches that can help protect you from vulnerabilities.
- Use strong passwords: We know you might forget them, but strong passwords are essential to protect your accounts. Use a combination of letters, numbers, and symbols, and change them regularly.
- Avoid public Wi-Fi networks: These are often more vulnerable to attacks. If you have to use a public Wi-Fi network, use a VPN to protect your traffic.
What should companies do for my security?
- Invest in security: Implement tools and security processes to protect user data. This includes data encryption, Identity and Access Management (IAM), and employee training in security.
- Transparency with you: Have clear and transparent privacy policies that explain how they collect, use, and share user data.
- Data encryption: This is the most effective way to protect data from unauthorized access.
- Provide privacy options: Companies should give users choices on how they want their data to be used. For example, you should be able to opt out of targeted advertising.
Global trends in online user behavior indicate that traditional ‘Cookies’ will eventually disappear, and companies will use more direct methods to collect your data. This information is considered very valuable and is almost like a payment you give to the companies, so make sure to trust who you share it with.
