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

      Yep, there are too many to name, and different groups want that that information for different reasons.

      Thank you for commenting True George,

    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.
