There are three big things that make the internet such a scary place to work: 1.
It has unlimited data.
It can track you and your every move online.
You’re surrounded by it.
This is why it’s tempting to avoid the internet, says David Gandy, co-founder of the technology consulting firm Kroll, who’s spent decades fighting against online surveillance.
(That’s a little misleading: Gandy doesn’t think we should be afraid of technology.)
He points to the internet as a way to reach your customers, rather than your competitors.
“The whole point of the Internet is to reach people,” Gandy says.
“It’s an amazing service, but the way we’re built to work with technology, we have to get it right.”
The good news is that you can avoid the worst of the worst online surveillance: the NSA.
The NSA collects data on your activities online, says Gandy.
And in some cases, that data can help the agency find you.
For example, if your website has an ad on it, that can tell the NSA that someone is browsing it.
And the NSA can see that too, Gandy points out.
“We can get these signals.
They can see who’s looking at the site, who you are talking to, where you’re talking to them.”
If you have the right tools, Ganey says, you can make it harder for your internet company to get spied on.
“There’s a whole lot of stuff you can do to make it easier to use your service, not harder, not less,” he says.
Gandy also says that if you’re working for an internet service provider (ISP), you can take steps to make sure your ISP doesn’t spy on you.
“If they do that, it’s not worth it,” he adds.
And that’s one of the biggest points that people often overlook: the power of the companies to get around the internet’s firewall.
The problem with internet service providers (ISPs) is that they can see the data they collect from your site, and they can use that information to target you.
If your ISP can see what you’re up to on the web, you’re vulnerable to tracking by those companies, and that’s why you shouldn’t have to rely on a company’s assurances about your privacy.
“They’re not your ISP,” says Gannon.
“Their job is to provide service.”
And if you think that’s a stretch, just ask any of the people who’ve been hacked by an NSA agent.
“ISPs aren’t spies,” says Peter Eckersley, a senior fellow at the American Civil Liberties Union.
“What they do is collect the data and give it to companies that use that data to make a profit.”
It’s also worth noting that not all ISPs are like Comcast.
For instance, Comcast says it doesn’t monitor your internet usage and can’t access your browsing history.
But, as a result, it could use that tracking to target ads to you.
And, as an ISP, it can use the information it collects to sell ads.
So, it is possible to fight back against an ISP that uses its data for nefarious purposes.
But if you choose not to use an ISP to track you, you should at least make sure it doesn.
Gannon says that, if you can’t protect yourself online, there are other ways to keep your privacy protected.
He says you can choose to stay online and not log in, and you can even encrypt your communications, such as sending encrypted emails or text messages.
“That’s something you can put in your privacy settings,” he points out, but you’ll probably want to be careful about how you do it.
If you do choose to keep online, you need to take steps that keep your data safe.
“You should make sure you don’t store your private data online,” says Eckersle.
“Don’t share it with anyone.
Don’t give out your password to anyone.”
If the internet has made you feel uncomfortable, don’t worry.
You can always find ways to make your online experience better.
“My wife and I both use Twitter, but we both have to sign in to them, so we don’t see all the funny things that are happening on Twitter,” says Eichenwald.
“So, we always have to be able to sign out of Twitter, and then back in.
It makes it very difficult to do anything in the real world that isn’t on Twitter.”
You can also use some online services to help you manage your online life.
For a start, there’s The Washington Post, a blog with more than 70,000 readers, and Vox, a news site that provides readers with curated content.
“I think it’s really important that people understand that the internet is a place where we all share our thoughts and our experiences,” says Ben Smith, a former White House intern who now runs the
