There are numerous reliable tools, which can help to protect your privacy.
- Using end-to-end encryption:
By using encrypted messaging applications and tools you can ensure to a high degree that your communications remain private and away from prying eyes. We recommend you use a messaging app called Signal.
- Using encrypted and private browsing:
By ensuring that you browse the net securely, you can protect your web browsing data from being exploited by unscrupulous actors. For example, use the Tor browser.
- Have strong passwords:
This means having a password composed of a minimum of four or more words, using symbols and numbers. Where possible, have two-factor authentication in place or go one step further and use a password manager to keep your data secure.
- Protect your devices:
This may be an obvious one, but if you misplace, lose or forget your device then you will be immediately at risk of your data being compromised.
