#TechTalk Breaks Down Some Cyber Privacy Myths


So, you think you protect yourself pretty well when you're running around on the Internet.

Well, what if I told you that you aren't being as safe as you think?

Let's break down a few cyber privacy myths:

  1. Private Browsing
    • The Good - it keeps your device from storing your browsing history
    • The Bad - your Internet Service Provider can still track and see what you do
    • The Fix - set up a Virtual Private Network on your computer
  2. Public Wi-Fi
    • The Good - they're free and easy to use
    • The Bad - even those locked with a password are not safe
    • The Fix - avoid them altogether and don't input personal info when on one
  3. Deleting My Personal Data From My Device
    • The Good - there really isn't one
    • The Bad - all of your info is still deep in your drives
    • The Fix - you can download wiping software
  4. Setting Your Facebook As Private
    • The Good - it does limit who some of your info is shared with
    • The Bad - downloaded apps may still access your friends list
    • The Fix - make sure you understand all of the privacy settings you agree to
