Privacy settings can help you indicate whether you consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your information.
Here are 5 tips to help you increase control over how your personal information is handled online:
- Before you sign up for a service or download an app, learn about what personal information is collected and the privacy controls available. If you’re not comfortable, don’t sign up for it!
- Explore and adjust privacy settings. (Default settings can often leave you exposed.)
- Look for options to turn off location-based settings or limit tracking to when you are using the service.
- Coordinate your settings so they stay the same even if you’re using different devices.
- Review your privacy settings often because they can change regularly. Don’t think of your settings as something you set and forget.
