3 little things for big online privacy improvements

1. Download a tool to block tracking in your browser
The latest Web Privacy Census by Abine and The Berkeley Center for Law and Technology found that online tracking continues to grow in prevalence and sophistication. Download a free tracker blocking tool, like Abine’s DoNotTrackMe, Disconnect, or PrivacyFix, to protect your privacy and stop companies from collecting your private information whenever you use the web. Our friends at the private search engine DuckDuckGo also have a great list of tools on how to stop getting tracked in your browser.

2. Turn off your phone’s GPS when you aren’t using it
Not only will you stop broadcasting your location everywhere you go, but you’ll save a lot of battery life. Many mobile apps and companies track GPS activity, and free apps are 4 times more likely to do so than paid apps. Yet only 19% of smartphone owners have turned off the location tracking feature on their phone because they were concerned that other individuals or companies could access that information.

3. Make all your old Facebook posts private
With Facebook’s new Graph Search, anything you’ve posted in the past is one search away. Luckily you can limit the privacy settings of all your old posts to “friends only” in one place. Just go to Privacy Settings, then under “Who can see my stuff,” click “Limit past posts.” Click the “Limit Old Posts” button to finish.
