Summary
Nowadays, it can be difficult to complete ordinary activities without placing your personal data online, but having your data online puts you at risk for theft, embarrassment, and all manner of trouble. In this book, Joe Kissell helps you to develop a sensible online privacy strategy, customized for your needs . Whether you have a Mac or PC, iOS or Android device, set-top box, or some other network-enabled gadget, you'll find practical advice that ordinary people need to handle common privacy needs (secret agents should look elsewhere). You'll learn how to enhance the privacy of your internet connection, web browsing, email messages, online chatting, social media interactions, and file sharing, as well as your mobile phone or tablet, and Internet of Things devices like webcams and thermostats.
