Edward Snowden wrote an op-ed in the New York Times where he argues that people are finally starting to care about privacy and preventing global surveillance. And though we care more, we also feel more powerless, according to a recent survey.
This week, I’m going to share a few links about how to lock down your PC to increase your privacy on the Web. There are a number of things that can be done, even if it’s something as small as turning on tracking protection in Firefox. As I’ve written about many times, our privacy has been under attack since before the Internet existed. You are not powerless, regardless of what you may think.
You may not be NSA proof, but you can be NSA expensive. Find ways to mitigate low hanging fruit and you will do better than most.
