Privacy: Voluntary Do Not Track

Are you using HTTPS when you browse Facebook?  You should be.   But only 2% of the FB users worldwide are. [Turn it on like this:  Top right corner:  Account, Account Settings, Account Security – Check the first box – Browse Facebook on a secure connection (https) whenever possible.]

Here’s another privacy tip – turn on the “Do not track” option in Firefox 4 and Internet Explorer 9.

Introduced in Firefox 4, the do-not-track option is fairly well buried.

Firefox 4 do-not-track preference

Internet Explorer 9 includes a do-not-track feature that is even better hidden. To enable this functionality, you need to click the Sprocket -> Safety -> Tracking Protection -> Your Personalized List -> Enable.

 

 

Why these settings aren’t enabled by default is beyond me.  No, really, it’s all about the money.  Advertising dollar$.

You’re welcome.</end privacy hygiene lesson>
