The New York Times ran a great piece last week outlining some steps you can take to enhance your privacy online. Kate Murphy argues that there are no secrets online and everything you do is being gathered by Facebook, Google and many others to create an online profile that can be organized, stored and sold to the highest bidder.
She suggests that you can charge and minimize the privacy risks created when big companies broker your data to third parties by spreading your online activity around a bit. For example, she recommends that if you use Google for search, you might want to consider using Hover for your personal and professional email.
The article is worth a read and we think its really great to see the mainstream press starting to tune into some of the benefits that Hover customers have enjoyed for years.
