Protecting Your Online Privacy

In today’s cyber society, protecting online privacy of all consumer's has fast become the number one concern of both consumers and online business owners.

Anyone who has had either his or her credit card or identity stolen can tell you that is a nightmare getting your life back. It can take years for a person to return to the financial status they had before the theft.

Every site that you go to on the Internet has a disclaimer that your privacy will be protected. Personal information is not disclosed or sold to third parties. They guarantee that your information is safe and secure. They claim that your online privacy is protected on all levels.

Yet everyday, sites are being hacked into and personal information is being stolen by people who for what ever reason feel that they are above the law.

The number of consumers who shop online has risen in drastically in recent years and continues to rise. The convenience of finding what you need at the click of a mouse anytime of the day or night without standing in line or fighting traffic is enticing to everyone.

However, with the growing threat of theft, many people are becoming wary of submitting their personal information online.

People need to feel that their online privacy is protected.

Online privacy is very important nowadays. People use their credit card for online payments all the time. Imagine what will happen if their personal data wouldn't be protected. I take great care on webpages that require filling in important data.

It is our personal responsibility to protect our system from identiti theft and fraud. I for one would first make sure that my computer, data and personal information are all safe. There are a lot of these programs that can be installed to prevent identity theft and everyone should have one installed to their PCs
