4 Critical Facebook Privacy Settings You Should Check Right Now

The Ultimate Guide To Managing Your Online Privacy Settings

It’s not a secret that companies collect data on us all the time. Whenever we download an app, use email or social media, browse online or make purchases, providers are gathering incredible amounts of data on who we are and our habits. What is more troublesome is that this data is often commercially sold without our knowledge (think Facebook), or stolen through data breaches and placed on underground marketplaces.

Just because you think there’s nothing in your life to hide, remember: Online privacy has less to do with what you are doing, and more to do with who you are AND what you are doing. On the Internet, data has high value. It’s stolen, sold, collected and analyzed (Norton).

You can start taking an active role in our own online privacy and minimize the amount of data that is collected about you by reviewing and changing the privacy settings of your online accounts.

Since this can seem like an overwhelming task, we’ve put together a comprehensive list of links that you can use to get started.

Envision Consulting

Envision Consulting

We started Envision Consulting for businesses that share our passion for building long- term and healthy relationships. While we might be technology experts, we’ve always known that trust, reliability and looking after a client’s best interest are paramount to succeeding in business. But in 2001 and to this day, there were few managed IT providers available that embodied our customer-centric values. There were countless support companies more interested in reacting to issues than paving the road forward for clients, making it far too difficult to build long-term relationships. We felt a strong pull to make something different, and we did.
