How to hide your personal information online.

In another post members were talking about how much personal info is online. I ran across this resource today on how to try and suppress some of your private info from be listed and thought others might find it useful.

Thank you for posting that. I'm passing it on, too.

Please consider adopting a rescue animal. So very many need a furr-ever home and someone to love them! And if we all spay/neuter our pets there won't be an overpopulation to put to death.

Great article. Some info release we cannot avoid.

But there's a lot we can do ourselves to limit the amount that is easily found, i.e. what we ourselves type in. You just never know who is profiling you and waiting for that key piece of info or the right image to slip out.

Do I sound a little paranoid? Good, because with fear comes safety. Ask any mariner.

Very interesting! Makes you realize how very difficult it is to "not be found".
Thanks, Andy!
