Why You Should Live A Paranoid Life!

Just a few years ago, if you claimed that you were being tracked or listened to on your phone or watched through your webcam or laptop, people would have called you crazy and paranoid. But in the last few years, a scary amount of information has come to light that, yes, many companies are in fact tracking your every move, collecting as much data about you as possible.

Some are keeping tabs on everywhere you go and how long you spend at each location. Others are collecting and sharing all kinds of data about you, including personal phone calls and texts, plus your WhatsApp messages as well. Many are convinced that even photo sharing apps are always quietly listening to your conversations — and honestly, would it be that surprising?

So what can YOU do about cyber crime?
The first step is to simply be AWARE.

Even if you aren’t a military hacker dealing with top secret information every day, it’s still important to be aware about the fact that your electronic devices are tracking and listening to you, whether you like it or not.

Awareness is the first step to staying safe. And in a world where data breaches and threats are a daily occurence, staying as safe as possible is increasingly vital.

It’s no longer being paranoid, it’s just being smart.

Knowledge is power. Once you are aware that Facebook is tracking your calls and texts, you have the power to opt out of that feature. The more you know, the more empowered you are to protect yourself.

For now, just be aware. Being paranoid is better than being hacked, right? Let’s take our personal data back into our own hands, where it belongs.

You now know Step 1 to keeping your life secure. Soon we will tell you about Step 2, and you’ll be well on your way to becoming a professional paranoid.
