Privacy has always been a concern with the internet, and for good reason. Hackers don’t care who you are, whether you are a business or just a person. If your give out information it will stay out there, available to anyone and everyone.


Obviously you have to give out a certain amount of information to sign up for social networks, but there are some things that you should avoid. Don’t EVER give out your full birth date unless there is a sure fire way to set your privacy settings so that information cannot leak out, or be accessible to anyone looking hard enough.

Another big privacy setting that many people and business ignore is the fact that you do not want to have file sharing open on your computer.
