Are you curious as to what your browser is sending out to the world? This site will tell you, as well as how to cover your tracks. Most of the time, a little plugin called "NoScript" would be all you need. But if you really haven't done a whole lot to secure your browsing, you may need more. Do a browser checkup once in awhile & keep your info & your browsing habits safe & sound.
The Department of Homeland Security is issuing warnings regarding scams and more, in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. Have a look at the article in the USA Today for more information & what to watch out for. A bit from the article is below.

Here's another one to watch for. The fake SEO renewal scam. We don't know this company, nor do we work with this company, but they send emails (that go to the spam box anyways), all the time about our many domains. Here's their latest email.

Internet security is a big deal, whether you believe it or not. At any given time, someone can be using your apps to gain information about you, where you are & what you're doing. Find out what you're leaking to the world via your browser & take action. See Robin Linus's page for a full workup of YOUR browser: http://webkay.robinlinus.com/ Then test your other browsers & see how they compare.
We should be careful of what's asked of us when it comes to internet security.
