New technology means more convenience. Today, you can do almost everything online. There is online shopping, online banking, there is even online dating. However, with all this new technology, privacy gets harder and harder to protect. You are probably more exposed now than ever before. With a click of a button, anybody can possibly learn your history and your daily activities. This is why being more aware and vigilant about your privacy is very important. Here are some tips that you should consider.
Mobile phone security
In this age, you can leave your home without your wallet but can not without your phone. Your phone is not only a communication device. It is now also your wallet, organizer, planner, book, computer, or basically anything you need it to be. It can access your bank, even your home. This is why it is very important to secure your phone. Never leave it lying around unguarded. Always make sure you enable its password lock. I also highly recommend that you set it to lock automatically when unused for a few seconds.
It can be inconvenient to have to unlock it every time you use it. But that is a minor inconvenience to having someone steal your phone and easily access all your information. From messages, to photos, to access to the different apps you have.
Be mindful when using other gadgets
There are times when we log into our different accounts using a gadget that is not ours. It can be your facebook, email, or even your online banking account. You should always be mindful and conscious. Be it a friend's or a public gadget like in an internet cafe. Make sure to always log out after using your accounts. You would not want the next user to access your accounts. Also, never use the autosave password features.
Make it a habit to clear your browsing history regularly. This is ideal even if you share terminals for work. Even if you share the gadget with a trusted person, there is always a chance for loss, theft, or misplacement. You wouldn't want your information to be at risk too.
Social media posts
When you post any information on social media platforms, be conscious of who is viewing it and what information are you sharing. If your profile is public, then any stranger can look at your information. Posts that seem innocent like a picture of your home can be used to invade your privacy.
Privacy concerns also impose risks on your life and safety. Protect yourself with the proper insurance.
