Protect Your Passwords Across All Platforms When Using Google Chrome

Use a Password Manager for Your Security

The strongest passwords are random strings, strings of letters, numbers, and symbols. Complex passwords are very difficult or almost impossible to remember, which is both a negative and a bad side.

There is a solution called a password manager.

A password manager keeps all your passwords encrypted once. The password manager also generates passwords. Users are advised not to use the same password on multiple accounts so that not all accounts where that password is used are compromised.

A password manager for Google Chrome will allow you to easily search through Google Chrome without difficulty. Password Managers are there to help your security and password protection.

If you follow the advice, you don’t need to think that you will be endangered. Safety and security come first.

Note Application Permissions

Check the permissions that the application requires. If the application requires certain permissions, the question arises of why and whether it makes sense to do so.

You should check after giving permission how your device behaves, whether there are certain changes.


Is the battery perhaps discharging faster, is there a change in functionality. It is necessary to research the application or the company and make a conclusion or determine the motives. Google search can give you all that. With the search, you get the necessary information.

Experts have suggested searching for the name of the application and the words “data scandal” or “fraud”. The results of the survey should show information on whether the company has had privacy or data breaches. You should also get information on whether that company is common in violating privacy and data rules and how they react to them.

“If a company has been hit multiple times and has done nothing to solve the problem, stay away from applications – it suggests they don’t take the problem seriously.”

Limit Your Exposure on Social Media for Your Own and Others’ Safety

Social networks ask for certain information on your profile. However, it would be desirable to limit this information. By sharing more information, the ability to search and retrieve information about you is greater. Enter the minimum amount of data for your safety and security.


By updating the software, you have an advantage over hackers and you are in step with the latest developments on the Internet.

The methods by which hackers steal and take your data and information are improving day by day, so we must develop a way to protect ourselves.

Always download applications from secure and official sites, not unofficial and insecure ones, as the risk of infection increases. Infections are related to the computer and various viruses – malware and Trojan viruses.

Privacy, Privacy, Privacy!

The right to privacy is one of the fundamental human rights and is equally valid in the online world. Unfortunately, with the dynamic progress of the Internet and the ways we can use it, we have reached a point where privacy in the virtual world sounds almost like an oxymoron.

What does that mean?

Assuming that most of the people around you (family, friends, classmates, and schoolmates) have an account on at least one social network, I don’t think we’ll be far from the truth.

Social networks, with rapid development, have shaped entire new communities within the endless internet universe. And we, like other homo sapiens of the modern age, have found our place within them. The internet is still changing the way we live – this is undeniable.

But there is no such thing as a (boring) definition that would better explain a term than a simple but picturesque example. When you meet a new person (face to face, in the real world), will you reveal some personal information to her when you first meet her, such as your residential address, your phone number, photos from your childhood, or the latest pastime?

Will you share with her what you had for lunch the day before, at what location, and with whom? I am sure the answer is no.

Now let’s transfer this example to social networks. If your profile (on any network) is not locked, or your privacy settings are not at a high level, anyone (who is not your friend) can extract most of this information by simply checking your account. 

Publishing things and events from personal life, which in reality most people would keep to themselves or share with their loved ones, has become a kind of a trend when it comes to the virtual world.

While this may not be a bad thing, a limit must be set. To do that, we need to become aware of why privacy on the Internet is important, who threatens us all, and in what ways.

Smart use of the Internet means implementing all available protection measures, both on the part of servers and Internet service providers, and on the part of us, the users, when leaving confidential information and personal data, especially if we are connected via a public unsecured wireless network or public computer.

To be clear – it is impossible to go unnoticed on the Internet (most of us do not want that).

This means that it is also impossible to fully protect and control our privacy.

But we must not overlook the importance and role of online privacy, and we need to become aware of how important it is.

Therefore, it is necessary to focus on smart and careful data leaving (everything that we would not say to a stranger does not need to share with strangers in the online world), application management (terms of use are detailed and boring documents, which does not go to small print) attachment, but it is important to know what information you provide to the company behind the application) but also other services. 

In this way, the amount and type of data that remains behind us in the virtual world and that is available to everyone, can be reduced to an acceptable and quite tolerable measure.

More fun – enjoy the benefits of the internet but always keep in mind that your privacy is priceless and therefore no one will protect it except yourself.
