How to Take Care of Your Privacy and Safety on the Internet

It's pretty apparent at the moment that the Internet is full of aspects that are ready to compromise your privacy or even safety in general.

Therefore, it's only up to you to be proactive and take measures in order to steer clear from trouble - and we've compiled some tips to use as a checklist for your web safety overhaul:

Use different passwords on each website/app

Even though most people are aware that you're much better off using a unique password for each account you create, but as you register on more and more websites and sign up to services, it becomes virtually impossible to remember all of those.

That's where password manager extensions and apps come to help - they basically generate a unique password any time you might need one, and allow you to store those all in one place, and then either look up or autocomplete them (feel free to try LastPass for free).

Use the Two-Factor Authentication

In case someone would be able to get your password or try to hack into the account, they'd have another barrier that's virtually impossible to breach - the 2FA authentication requirement.

In short, any time you would try to log into your account, the system will request for a special code that would either get sent to you as a text message, or stored in an app like Google Authenticator, and your device is the only one that has access to it, so make sure to always turn on the Two-Factor Authentication if the website suggests that option.

Avoid giving out any additional info when making a purchase

If you're not into getting bombarded with constant newsletters or marketing emails, try to avoid ever filling out questionnaires or giving them your email address. However, if that seems like an obvious precaution, stores might ask for your zip code, which seems harmless at first, but it actually helps companies make research and find your mobile phone number, email or even address.

If possible, refuse to give out any extra information about yourself when making any purchase, because they will likely out those details to big marketing databases.

Make up fake answers to the security answers

If they're there only to help you access the account if you completely forgot the password, then it shouldn't matter if the answer to “What's your first pet's name" is a completely made up lie, should it?

Any person with malicious intent would, in theory, be able to dig up that info - but that wouldn't be possible if you've given the wrong answer in the first place, and that reduces your risk of security breach significantly.

We really hope these tips will help you with strengthening your data safety and want to remind you that Pond Mobile also looks after your security by making sure that all of your calls and messages will be protected. And do not forget to follow our Facebook and Twitter.
