Online Privacy Tools

It’s been all over the news lately.  Hackers are invading business and personal sites and stealing valuable confidential data. Simon Black of Business Insider explains that we need to take steps to secure our privacy.  In Five Tools To Protect Your Privacy Online, Black outlines five services that can help. 

 

1. Tor Browser – Tor allows you to surf the web without giving up your location and other personal data to the websites you visit.

2. Duck Duck Go – A search alternative that is completely anonymous  and does not store any information about you or your searches.

3. HTTPS Everywhere – A plug-in for Firefox and Google Chrome that tries to force a website to connect in secure mode, thus encrypting your traffic with the website you are visiting.
