Yesterday wasn't a good day for internet privacy regulation. The Senate voted to make it easier for ISPs like Verizon, Comcast and AT&T to track and share sensitive information about their customers without permission. This puts people at risk of increased identity theft, data breach, and financial fraud. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Here's what you can do to protect yourself:
Step 1: Use a VPN like TunnelBear or Cloak. VPNs hide your IP address and encrypt your traffic across the web to keep you safe.
Step 2: Use HTTPS everywhere (as opposed to regular HTTP).
Step 3: Use a tool like Micro Snitch to protect your private data from being sent out, and Snoopie, which shows you who's watching you across the web. 🐶
