Logodog has a bunch of apps and tools for monitoring your accounts and receiving alerts when there's suspicious activity.
TechCrunch
By some estimates as many as 1 in 4 people claim to have had one of their online accounts hacked, something that Israeli startup LogDog is on a mission to help stop. It offers a mobile app (currently Android, with iOS to follow soon) that promises to monitor an array of online accounts for suspicious login or attempted login activity.

ZDNet
Net neutrality is on its death bed. With it gone, ISPs will be able to strip-data-mine your every move on the web. There are answers. One is Tenta's new secure Domain Name System (DNS) resolver, Tenta DNS. This receives and sends the directions to the websites you visit using the secure Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol.
Forbes
The massive dump of CIA hacking tools by Wikileaks has everyone talking. Some of that talk has been quite sensational, claiming that the Agency has broken apps like Signal and WhatsApp. More measured responses, particularly from those in the cybersecurity business, say the leaks don't show that...
GeekWire
Privacy isn't just about porn. It's increasingly becoming an important priority for citizens and a challenging issue for lawmakers and corporations. But more than a decade of experience in the adult technology industry taught Jen McEwen and Jesse Adams a thing or two about privacy - and they used that expertise to create Tenta.

Firefox Focus

A free, fast and easy to use private browser.

Browse like no one’s watching. The new Firefox Focus automatically blocks a wide range of online trackers — from the moment you launch it to the second you leave it. Easily erase your history, passwords and cookies, so you won’t get followed by things like unwanted ads.

Florian Karmen- SEO Consultant in Strasbourg
Firefox Focus is designed to block online trackers, including third-party advertising, with the end goal of both improving browsing speed and protecting users' privacy.
TechCrunch
Late last year, Firefox introduced a new, private web browser for iPhone, called Firefox Focus. The browser by default blocks ad trackers and can erase your browsing history, including passwords and cookies. Now, over a half-year later, Firefox is bringing the Focus browser to Android devices, with some added functionality.
The Verge
Firefox released an Android version of its private browser Firefox Focus today. It's the software company's answer to consumers' desire for greater internet privacy with ad blocking built in at the core. The movement for greater privacy has been growing over the years through concerns exacerbated by WikiLeaks, NSA spying, identify theft, and more.
Engadget
The main differences come down to features inherent to Android itself. You can set Firefox Focus as the default browser, for one thing. And if you switch to another app, you'll get a reminder notification that lets you erase your history without skipping a beat.
the Guardian
Mozilla's Firefox browser didn't quite make the leap from desktop to mobile, particularly on iOS, but it's back for a second try with Firefox Focus, a new browser which hopes to be iPhone users' go-to tool for private web surfing. It's an innovative approach from an organisation that has often struggled against the forces of inertia.
gHacks Technology News
Firefox Focus, known as Firefox Klar in Germany, is a privacy-focused web browser by Mozilla that will be available for Android soon as well. Firefox Focus is different from other browsers; first, because it is clearly focused on privacy, and second, because it offers a stripped down experience that is focused on single tab browsing.
Android Authority
Mozilla has released the Android version of its Firefox Focus browser, which makes it easier to get rid of website ad trackers, among other features.
VentureBeat
Firefox Focus is the only product to come out of Mozilla in the last few years that I can genuinely point to and say: Look, the company is doing something interesting again. I've been using it regularly since its debut in June, which is more than I can say for any other third-party mobile browser I've tried.
