The modern-day citizen in many countries across the globe has access to the nearly limitless cache of user-friendly and practical public information – the Internet. As helpful and transformative as the internet is, it comes with its own set of problems. Privacy protection for personal data and one’s online identity are two of the most pertinent matters among these issues. In this blog post, we show you some simple tricks you can use to safeguard your online identity in today’s digital age. With all manner of different kinds of digital devices accessible to everyone nowadays, anyone can take advantage of the extraordinary benefits that Telecommunications and Information Technologies offer – such as transmitting information even to remote corners of the world in mere seconds! Though most feats accomplished through telecommunications technology happen fairly recently, people already depend on them enough for them to cease being new.
Today, things all have a digital touch: from complex computers and smartphones to everyday household gadgets, there is nowhere you can go without finding some form of technological power. Even the most primitive tools in the past now have upgraded versions that give them the ability to communicate with one another. Everything has to be traced back to its rightful owner; if smartphones weren’t enough, today’s homes and workplaces are filled with IoT (Internet of Things) devices that collect data about you for giant tech companies that build software or hardware for us – without these things, we wouldn’t know how to live. Every tool that connects through your home LAN transmits packets across the internet to remote servers – these can then be used by people online who would like nothing more than tracing you down.
While the need to use these tools heavily outweighs any privacy concerns, nothing is as dangerous as browsing
A User-Agent Switcher
Tech companies can monitor many of your digital identifiers to track how they would appear under different circumstances. Randomizing as many parts of your private information as possible will stop them from connecting the dots and tracking your online identity so easily. User agents don’t have much-identifying information, but when combined with the rest of a person’s private data, this could be used to profile someone and predict their appearance and behavior – including what advertisements might most resonate with them. Whoever is examining the user-agent knows what type of browser and operating system you’re using on your device—when you change a user-agent with a downloadable switcher or browser extension, don’t use an outdated one if you want to maintain stability in your web browsing experience. It’s also possible to achieve this by opening multiple browsers, though it means giving up things like bookmarks and customized settings – not something everyone wants to do!
IP address will be hidden
There are many ways to disguise your Public Address, which acts as a link between your internet connection and the outside world. VPNs are often talked about as devices that give you protection by changing the direction of your entire Internet connection so it reaches its destination with another IP address. They’re also wonderful for avoiding surveillance on public Wi-Fi because they create encrypted tunnels for transmitting data. If you want more flexibility, change your IP Address using proxy servers. With pre-built apps, browser extensions, or just making adjustments in your device settings, you can decide how certain segments of your Internet Connection will travel through and take on an identity from a proxy server service provider. To avoid being tracked online not only by technological companies but hackers and cybergangs too–avoid free proxies at all times! Whilst the free service is always attractive – even when choosing to use a high-quality proxy – you’ll be connecting to congested servers where speeds will slow down significantly and could expose you to blacklisted websites
Only go for data center proxies from reputable proxy server providers. You can also choose
