If you value your data and privacy we offering some advise

I would like you to read an article by “Money Mornings” Sam Volkering in his article “How to surf the web in Private“.

Sam laments how Australians have become a nation of sheep, I quote Sam.

This is what we’ve referred to before as ‘sheep theory’. It’s the simple premise that most people are just happy to follow the flock like everyone else and sit nicely in the middle of the bell curve.

These people want authority to tell them what to do and when to do it. They might say different. They might pretend to be ‘free’ and to ‘be their own boss’. But they’re not. They’re just another sheep seeking the endorphin rush of the modern world’s instant gratification addiction

Does this describe you?…. or are you truly sick of Big Tech companies listening into your conversations, knowing your browsing habits and personal information, selling your data onto 3rd party companies and then bombarding you with advertising based on that information?

If you would like to know how to protect your data and personal information, receive less or no advertisements from website, reduce the amount of spam emails and the ensuing malware and computer viruses, read Sam’s article and the following articles on privacy and data protection:

The Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC) has developed an Easy Steps Guide to Australians protect themselves from cyber criminals. Lottery and grant scams, identity theft, investment scams, hacking, phishing, dating and romance scams, online abuse and sextortion are just some of the threats people face.
