How concerned are you about your privacy on the internet? Are you considering changing what you share?
I’m not too concerned – obviously, since I write a blog. But I certainly exercise common sense caution.
We were more cautious when I began an online journal. I’m still suspicious of many sites because, even though I don’t save cookies, something gets in and hacks my email.
It’s always the same email that gets hacked, and I usually realize — after the fact, of course — that the managers of the site were upgrading again. Evidently they remove some of the safeguards while they make changes.
I worry about my hard drive, because they don’t last forever, but I am more worried about the safety of anything I save online.
Concerned, but also realize there is almost nothing I can do to protect it.
I’ve been on line for so long, and never worried at the beginning, that anything that’s out there is out there, so I don’t care all that much either. I also don’t do anything that would get me in trouble — don’t do on-line banking, buy on eBay or visit chat or dating sites, etc.
I am cautious. I have one email for my personal stuff. another email for other stuff. I don’t put much on Facebook. We check our accounts every day. Not too much will get by us.
