9 Tips For Internet Privacy Branded

With the latest technologies being used by top web services nowadays, protecting your data and information online is not as easy as before. Aside from those web services, using mobile phones can also expose your information.

Search Engines and Web Browsers

Search engine giants like Google and Bing tend to track your usage data and search queries. They use this information to improve business and attract more advertisers.

Web browsers like Chrome and Opera also do the same like search engines. They will track everything you do while using their browsers to make their advertising more targeted. That means they’ll also attract more advertisers.

Emails and Social Media

Top email services like Gmail and Hotmail track every word your send and receive. If you notice it, when using your email, every ads on your screen is related to your emails. Not every email services do this; there are some services that comply with government requests.

Facebook and Google earn billions from advertising and they do everything they can to attract more advertisers.
