Hello readers! Over the next few weeks and months I am going to be writing about basic online security. There will be a few different articles on various measures you should be taking to protect your information and perhaps your identity.
In this day and age of nearly omnipresent electronic surveillance, identity theft, and swatting pranks, it is always a good idea to take basic measures to control access to your personal information.
There are many ways to do this and some of the following posts will be focused on:
- Tracking Cookies - Who should have access to my identity?
- VPNs - Why would I need an anonymous IP address?
- Proxies - Diet VPNs!
- Cryptocurrencies - Some kind of math gold?
- Tor Network - How to buy human organs online and send emails like Edward Snowden
I look forward to writing some great new articles for you guys! These are not going to be deeply advanced articles, but instead will be aimed at getting as much of the regular population as possible up to speed on how to protect themselves at a basic level. Think of this series as the self defense 101 class taught at your local community college. We are not training you to be shadow warrior ninjas here, just helping you to learn a few basics.
See you all soon!
