How to Compute in Privacy: Part 2

With the NSA scandal, privacy has been a big concern for a lot of computer users. In part 1 of this article, we looked at safe passwords, safe searching and private search. In part 2, I’ll address three other areas of concern.

#4 – Mobile Privacy

We live in a mobile world where people are always on the go and they want to stay connected while working, traveling, or doing errands simultaneously.

However, privacy on your mobile is becoming increasing more popular as celebrities and politicians continue to make the news when their nude “selfies” that end up on the Internet. 

Here are the best options to protect and secure your privacy while you compute on your smart phone (Even if you’re not a freak.):

 Android:

 Apple:

 #5 – Computer Privacy

Rather use a desktop or a laptop you have to keep your “home base” safe and secure? You’re not the only one who could have access to the precious files and folders in your “my documents,” you know.

Here’s how to keep your computer safe from privacy thieves:

 #6 – Network Privacy

Many people may not think about WIFI when they think about privacy. 

The fact is you could be leaving yourself totally vulnerable when you join a WIFI network at the airport or the library and you don’t even know it.

If you’d rather be safe than sorry here’s some options to keep your data private on public wireless networks:

  • McAfee Wi-FiScan
    Scans the WIFI network you are connected to and provides security recommendations.
  • Norton Hotspot Privacy  Apple version
  • PrivateWiFi.com
  • WPA2
    if you have an old wireless router for your home or business it’s time to upgrade to WPA2 security. This newer version will make it very difficult for hackers to access your devices. This protocol comes standard on any popular and highly rated WIFI router.
