6 Tips To Protect Your Online Search Privacy

Google and other search engines have been doing it since ages… Yes, you guessed it right. I am talking about collecting your personal information. However, there are for sure ways to ensure that you come out of this big mess without getting hurt. Tio has written a detailed article on this topic describing the ways to protect your online search privacy.
Below are the tips which are discussed in this article.

  1. Don’t put personally identifying information in your search terms.
  2. Don’t use your ISP’s search engine
  3. Don’t login to your search engine or related tools
  4. Block “cookies” from your search engine
  5. Vary your IP address
  6. Use web proxies and anonymizing software like Tor

Although, Tio does discusses these tips in full length, but one should be aware that implementing these methods only creates a shield. It doesnt actually guarantee you full safety.

In the end, Play safe is the word i would like to utter before ending this post 😉
