Privacy4Patriots - Coming In 2014

Privacy4Patriots, the simple step-by-step system that helps you protect your privacy from scam artists and government spies, will launch in 2014. Until then, please read the tips below to help protect your online privacy.

Here are the Privacy4Patriots "Top 4 Ways to Shake Internet Hackers". By following these four easy steps – and repeating them periodically – a computer user will be able to keep those who spy at bay.

1.    Stop the spy bots. Spies use cookies to track online movements, but all browsers provide the option of disabling them. For Internet Explorer, users can go to Internet Options, then Privacy then Sites and block any sites they believe might be tracking them. One can also enable InPrivacy browsing with Explorer 8 or higher. In Advanced Privacy Settings, click on “Override automatic cookie handing” to block cookies.

2.    Browse anonymously. Every computer has its own identity called an IP address that carries much of the user’s information with it. An IP address can reveal one’s location, age, sex, income and home value information. Services such as hide-my-ip.com cloak one’s identity and keep information private.

3.    Delete Ad tracking software for free. Even when cookies are turned off, some websites can install tracking software on a computer to track the user’s every move. Spybot Search and Destroy, for example, will erase these bots and keep the user’s information and computer safe.

4.    Erase the search history. Some search engines will store every search the user has made. Those with Google accounts can visitgoogle.com/history, sign in and then click “Remove All Web History.”
