Do you save passwords on your phone? Have you ever entered in personal data like your full name, date-of-birth, address, phone number, while using public wifi? I know I’m guilty. Just thinking of all the times I’ve used wifi at Starbucks, Target and airports make me want to reset all my passwords.
I’m going to share something I’ve never done before in this article – how much I’ve struggled personally with protecting my personal data.
Three years ago, my work email was hacked. Whoever hacked my account deleted all my messages, causing me to lose over 16 years of data and contacts. As an entertainment journalist and a digital entrepreneur, I’ve had to rebuild my network. It was absolutely devastating. To this day, I have no idea who did it or why.
A year ago, one of my credit cards was compromised. My bank called to ask how I was spending $7,300 at a lingerie shop in Brazil and $21.50 in downtown LA within the same hour. (A lingerie shop in Brazil?! I wish, LOL!)
Last month, as I’m sitting on my couch at home, I received notifications that my credit was pulled by an apartment rent screening company. I nearly spat out my coffee when I saw that someone tried to rent a luxury apartment in Manhattan using my credit score. I filled a police report and I’m still going through the process of disputing identity theft with the credit bureaus… to be continued.
Have you ever had your private information stolen? Social media accounts and emails hacked? Phone numbers, addresses, DOB and other private information leaked online? When we realize we’ve been a victim of fraud and data breach, it’s often too late. What if there was a way for us to be much more proactive in protecting our data and prevent our private info from being compromised in the first place?
I’m teaming up with Clario to share 6 ways you can protect your phone and personal data on-the-go:
Protect Personal Identity from Hacks and Breaches
Now that we are spending more and more time online, we must keep our passwords and online accounts secure from data breaches and hacks. Clario protects our online accounts by stopping our accounts from getting hacked through our device or network, and watch out for password breaches. Clario prevents harmful apps from monitoring and stealing our personal data and info. Clario also prevents unwanted parties from stealing data we enter online while using unsecured (aka public) wifi.
Clario gives us the freedom to secure, private, ad-free browsing to watch our favorite shows without regional restrictions or being tracked. The app can keep the websites we visit hidden from our internet provider and malicious apps; allow us to access location-restricted content and services by selecting our VPN locations, and stop those annoying pop-up ads.
Clario ensures our devices are secured in real-time against malware. Who’s paranoid about others accessing our webcam or mic with spyware? Yes, Clario protects our cam and mic from unwanted access. It also protects our system from malware, viruses, etc.
While we shop online and connect our bank accounts or payment information, Clario makes sure our connection is secure. In addition to keeping our payment details and account logins safe, Clario also makes sure our payment data is safe from malware.
