Staying Extra Safe

Staying Extra Safe

I know how much everyone is concerned about their security and personal information on the Web, so this week, I found a couple Web sites that will help keep your data extra secure when you put it on the Web. The first one is called Guerrilla Mail and the second is called The Cloak. Both of these sites offer great features for extra security options.

Have you ever wanted some information from a Web site that requires your e-mail address? I know I have! And once you do that, you know what happens. Yep, you give the company your e-mail address so that you can get the information you want and you then get an e-mail from them everyday. Well, that’s when Guerrilla Mail comes in handy. You can go to Guerrilla Mail and get a temporary e-mail address. That address only works for 15 minutes, but that should be long enough to get the information you need, without having to give out your actual e-mail address. Sounds like a deal to me!

Secondly, everyone talks about how your personal information is gathered by Web sites and search engines everyday. Well, The Cloak puts a stop to that! The Cloak is a site that sets up a proxy for you. That way, no matter where you go on the Web, the Web sites you visit will not be able to access any of your information. The only information they get is from The Cloak.

You can check out these two security sites here: Guerrilla Mail and The Cloak. Until next time, stay safe out there, my friends!
