Privacy and your online security is something that all users need to put more energy behind understanding, protecting and advocating to ensure that the Internet remains a great place to share, learn and explore.
There are the obvious threats of hackers, however it could also be an issue with your government. Governments all over are using the web to keep tabs on their citizens for which many of us know little about what they are collecting and how frequently.
I recommend the use of various tools to protect your online privacy from browser extensions to password managers and more. The key to adopting a more private internet experience is understanding that the more private and secure you get, the more you may give up regarding your online experience. Most tools and software will restrict certain apps from running as they pose a potential risk for exposing your data, so just keep this in mind.
