12-18 May, 2019 is Privacy Awareness Week. The event is celebrated annually to highlight the most common privacy issues faced by netizens today and the importance of protecting their personal information from prying eyes. This year privacy awareness is celebrated with the theme of not to remain in the dark on privacy.

So, what are your privacy priorities? Which practices do you follow?

Oh! That reminds me, I need to replace the shower curtain :)


Seriously though, I generally practice privacy by simply not putting anything out that I don't want out.

VPN, password manager, 2FA, using different email addresses for different accounts are just some of the things I do. Not really a privacy practice but I suppose it pays to know some of the intricacies of privacy laws such as the GDPR (easier read on here). Wonder how calls for a similar law in the US would turn out, especially when lobbyists only want to cherry-pick parts that would be beneficial to them.
