No claim is made to the effectiveness or interoperability of my below suggestions. Just because this works for me and my web usage, doesn’t mean it will work for you and your situation. Ok, legal mumbo-jumbo is done. Check out the following:

  • It cannot be said enough times so I’ll say it once more. Never click a link or open an email if it doesn’t seem legitimate. Trust your instincts, if something seems shady, it almost certainly is.
  • Make sure you are running the latest and greatest version of whatever operating system your computer or mobile device runs. These updates often include bug fixes and help protect your computer from unwanted intrusions.
  • Make sure you are running the latest and greatest versions of whatever web browser(s) you are using and enable privacy mode. Again, these updates often include bug fixes and help protect your computer from unwanted intrusions.
  • Install the Ad Block Plus browser extension to block ad tracking.
  • Install the Ghostery browser extension to see what tracking tools are used on sites you visit and to stop them from tracking you.
  • Read Google’s “Good to Know” Safety Center to learn more about securing your online activity.
  • Speaking of Google. Do you use Gmail, Maps, or really any Google service? If so, log in to your Google account and visit the dashboard To manage all your account history and privacy settings.
  • Read Microsoft’s online privacy and security site.

That’s it for now. Hope this helps and thanks for reading!
