An Academic Search Engine Is Overcoming Discord Caused By Cyber Threats

 
PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Oct. 20, 2020 - PRLog -- "The fact is that internet privacy has always mattered whether it's 2000 or 2020. The only difference between the two decades is that cyber threats have escalated 20 times," Lynn Bentley, President, Knobull, Inc. announced!

"The Knobull team has woven data security into the fabric of the Company. You understand Internet privacy and its importance, let's discuss the most common issues that surround your privacy online today:

When you browse the Internet, you may have noticed those obtrusive ads following you. Well, that's because your movements are tracked by websites which we have pledged will never be part of the way we conduct business."

A staggering 17 million Americans have been affected by identity theft in 2017. Cybercriminals use malware to break into your online accounts or device and steal your personal information.

Here are some safeguards to fight against the discord these individuals and organizations sow:

Using a unsecured search engine should be avoided. Those looking for education sources can use a highly ranked, secure academic search engine such as Knobull.

Not logging out of websites is convenient. However, it also leaves your online accounts and personal information vulnerable to anyone who uses or hacks into your device. You should be cautious when opening attachments in emails or on social media as they could contain malware and viruses. Similarly, always downloads files from trusted sources.

You can keep safe from harmful content on the Internet with simple precautions. A strong anti-virus program will keep your device free from all types of malware.

You should delete cookies regularly as they're used by third parties to track you online. Big Internet companies such as Facebook and Google usually give you options to opt-out of some, if not all, of their personalization and tracking. For example, you can manage your ads preferences on Facebook, while Google allows you to turn off ads personalization.

In today's era, we constantly back up our pictures and other files on the cloud. Backing up on the cloud comes packed with its own privacy issues. Anyone could intercept your internet connection and view the data you are backing up or downloading from the cloud.

Bentley concluded, "Online privacy clearly matters! Still think you have nothing to hide? Probably not. Privacy matters because, without it, the Internet becomes a dangerous place for us to traverse. After all, there would be nothing stopping what you do online from being entirely public. Privacy on the Internet is your basic right and you need to fight for it! By incorporating these Internet privacy tips into your daily lives, you'll be able to protect your privacy online and browse with peace of mind, knowing that your personal information won't be compromised."

We wish to thank PUREVPN for the research they conducted on this critical topic.
