Cyber Security Tip: Erase your private data from the Internet

Cyber Security Tip: Erase your private data from the Internet

Dec 5, 2023

There are dozens of “people finder” websites like Spokeo that host databases full of personal information, such as your phone number, home address, age, birthdate and even relatives and court records.

You can opt out, but you have to do it with each account separately. Services such as PrivacyDuck and DeleteMe can do this for you, but they aren’t free and don’t get every single people-finder service out there.

We recommend you search on your name to at least know what’s being shared publicly, and then opt out accordingly.

IT Security Tip #34:

Never forget that e-mail constitutes a legal record and can be admissible in legal actions, not only in the courtroom, but in the court of public opinion. People sue for all kinds of silly reasons. Family members get into disputes, couples get divorced, consumers sue merchants, and vendors can pursue delinquent clients.
