The Daily Post had a Daily Prompt today called Privacy, and this is what it said:

DAILY PROMPT

Privacy

Write a new post in response to today’s one-word prompt.

Not sure how to participate?

Here are the steps to get started.

And this is my response:

Privacy

I would like to mostly focus on computer and online privacy with today’s prompt, and I will start with some simple online/computer privacy and security tips by Microsoft called Protect Your Privacy On The Internet:

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/safety/online-privacy/prevent.aspx

I recommend following those tips from Microsoft in the link above, keeping your software/apps updated (up-to-date), using an ad blocker/general purpose blocker browser extension like UBlock Origin (uBlock Origin), using a free version of an on-demand backup anti-malware scanner like Zemana AntiMalware Free as another layer of protection to manually scan files/drives/devices before you use or open them and scan your computer/devices at least once a week, and use skepticism and common sense to help you protect your privacy and yourself and your computer/devices et cetera.

The end,

-John Jr

  1. Great! Thanks for the useful tip(s), John Jr. I quickly reviewed the MS link and it appears that privacy can be easily compromised if we aren’t vigilant enough to take extra steps to protect ourselves against intruders.
