Despite the high profile given to Internet privacy on mainstream media, there still appears to be naivety among certain Internet users about keeping their personal details safe. Thousands of data breaches impacting millions of people are reported every year, yet one still comes across the same stories about Internet users having the same passwords for a range of different sites.

Whether a password is in place for a social media account, an online shopping site or an online banking portal, it should be a) unique, b) hard to guess, and c) changed often. To manage your Internet privacy, only ever give the minimum amount of information required and only if you have complete confidence in the website you are giving it to.
