Apps & Privacy: How To Stay Safe

More than 9 in 10 Americans feel like they’ve lost control of their privacy and personal data to data mining companies.  From browsing social media to sending emails, we generate 250 million terabytes of new data per day in America. More interestingly, 946 Instagram photos; 8,690 tweets; 77,783 Google searches; and 2,845,450 emails are sent every second on the Internet. With development companies capitalizing on the user data, how are you to know if your data is private?

In fact, each Google user’s data is worth about $182 – for Facebook, it’s $158. In one experience, researchers could predict what someone would post on social media with 95% accuracy – even if that person never had an account. Saying this, you don’t need to use social media or download risky apps for your data to be compromised. For more information on which apps compromise your privacy and what you can do about it, continue reading below.
