4 Inexpensive Ways to Improve Your Digital Security
If you’re leery of being tracked online, there are steps you can take to keep your information private. The following recommendations come from ‘Wirecutter’ and ‘The New York Times’.
1. Get a password manager These allow you to employ different passwords for every site, without having to keep track of what they are.
2. Get a Virtual Private Network (VPN) A VPN will keep most internet browsing private from providers, reduce online tracking and secure public Wi-Fi connections.
3. Get a webcam cover These can prevent hackers from spying on you while your computer is on.
4. Get a two-factor authentication app When enabled, these apps add an extra authentication step to logging into online accounts, such as Gmail.
