Outside of the absolute basics (family, money, etc.), Internet security is perhaps the most important issue in your life…and you likely don’t realize it. We have all borne witness to high-profile compromises of the databases of various, well-known merchants over the last several years, compromises that have put millions upon millions at risk of identity theft in a variety of forms and fashions. In addition to those types of assaults on the security of your online information, there is, of course, the ever-present threat that one of your devices will become the victim of a direct attempt to pilfer valuable, sensitive information from it.
The matter of Internet security is something to which the diligent person will always give careful thought, and there’s a lot more to it than just making sure you have tough-to-crack passwords (although that’s important, too – read a previous article here on the topic). For example, do you know that your level of online safety can vastly improve just by choosing the right browser?
According to The Patriot Privacy Kit, an outstanding 114-page digital publication devoted to helping you stay safe and “invisible” when going about your business both online and offline, not all browsers are created equal when it comes to Internet security; while so many continue to use Internet Explorer, Google Chrome is more secure, being designed in such a way that it provides extra “insulation” against a Trojan or malware attack, should one of those get past your antivirus program.
The Patriot Privacy Kit has a complete section on this, and has a ton more information on a wide variety of issues related to staying safe online these days, including how to protect yourself from NSA spy efforts, how to use email more securely, what you need to know to be safe as a regular user of social media…even how to secure your sensitive information offline, something people don’t consider as often in this day and age. The Patriot Privacy Kit even discusses how you can become basically invisible on the Internet…while still using it!
If you’re interested in staying as safe as you possibly can while soaring through cyberspace…and you should be, given that the threats are greater than ever…then do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of The Patriot Privacy Kit today.
