Tips and resources to protect your online identity and privacy. Includes a presentation slideshow, recent news, and recommended websites

Is there privacy online?

No, privacy doesn't exist on the web. 

A lot of information is culled from public records of which we have little or no control over.  Beyond this there is the information we have a direct role in providing through our online activities such as web browsing, Facebook, Twitter, Gmail, GoogleDocs, etc. 

You can better manage our online identity by being careful about what we post and to whom, and by being more aware about privacy policies and settings.
