With so much of our lives revolving around our “Online Brand” which could either make us or break us in life and our careers, I thought it was imperative that I help to spread the word about web services that help you fight back and regain some of your privacy. I first saw these on a blog EFYTIMES I personally follow here and you should check out their other ad block suggestions too. We use Bitdefender extension in a Mozilla browser, along with Privacy Dog, and AdBlock Plus, as well as a Disconnect plugin. This involves lots of white-listing sites and content that I do want to allow through, but you get used to it, once you realize how long it’s been since you had malware, viruses, and other issues on your machine. 🙂
So make sure you save and put some of these to use to maintain or regain control of your online image. If you don’t create it, someone else will do it for you. Safe surfing!
