Beating the NSA and PRISM

So we know the Fed’s been spying on us and Obama enjoys listening to your phone conversations. But what can we do about it? Google, Microsoft an Apple are all on board with the NSA and it seems we should just accept it for what it is. I mean how creepy is the fact that an NSA employee about there is listening to you talking on the phone?

Obama is a romantic man isn’t he?

Well, here are a few things you CAN do to protect your privacy.

1/Use Open Source Browsers

Mozilla FireFox is a greatly popular internet browser that is non-profit and open source, not to mention the host of plug-ins, themes and browsing tools it provides. You can could on the Mozilla foundation to not sell your information. If you are really serious about anonymity online you can use the slower but more secure TOR Browser.

2/ Use non-profit search engines: Scram Google or Bing and switch to the very flexible DuckDuckGo search engine. They never save your search history or information.

3/Try to think outside the box: The box includes Google, Apple and Microsoft. Try to find alternatives to their services. For example, WordPress is a GREAT tool for media publishing securely. Oh and don’t “CHECK IN” to Face book unless you want people to know where you were on that odd day two years ago. Seriously.

  1. An interesting discussion is worth comment. I think that you ought to write more on this subject matter, it might not be a taboo matter but typically people don’t discuss these issues. To the next! Cheers.
