1. Use A Good Browser
Do not use an out of date version of Internet Explorer. Although Microsoft has updated their browser pretty well recently, it just happens to be the most popular browser: the more people use a particular browser, the more hackers and jerks who will try to make victims of its users. Google Chrome is currently the most secure browser, and it also happens to be one of the fastest. Some computers have trouble running it well, so you can also try Firefox, a close second.
2. Play With Social Media Privacy Settings
Facebook is somewhat notorious for its privacy settings, and consistently updates their privacy terms and options. With the timeline becoming the only way to use the site, some people are worried about how to protect their past from unwanted stalking. Well good news: you can limit your old posts. It’s definitely worth it to take five minutes out of your day to play with you privacy settings to make sure your information is stored/shared the way you want. This also goes for Twitter, Youtube, etc. Seriously, go do this. You will not regret it.
3. Think About Encrypting Your Data and Network
VPNs, which of course we are a fan of, have a lot of benefits on top of just privacy. They can also protect you from deep packet inspection by encrypting your data and network connection. This way, your ISPs stays hidden and safe.
