Protecting your personal information online can seem like a losing battle, but there are many tools designed to make the job much easier. 3 of the newest applications on the market are specifically designed to help protect your personal information while you use the internet.
Blur is an application designed to stop web tracking while you browse the internet. Blur helps to protect your privacy in multiple other ways as well, including password encryption and email masking. Blur is a very popular application that has been used for many years, but it was previously called DoNotTrackMe. All that you need to do is install a browser add-on and set it up through a web interface. There is a free version available with limited features and a premium version that will mask your credit card numbers and phone numbers as well.
AdBlock is one of the most widely used apps designed to protect personal information on the internet. To many people, online ads are an annoying part of looking around online, but to others they are an actual threat to privacy. Ads can contain malicious code and potentially damage or track your personal information. Adblock can be used to turn off all advertisements or only display advertisements on certain websites that you deem worthy.
Web of Trust
This free application works to protect your personal information while you are browsing the web. The icon will turn a different color depending on the safety level of the website that you are visiting. Safe websites will show as green and unsafe ones will show as red. You can also get other ratings, like child safety ratings, to help browse.
