Hackers and legitimate companies share one thing in common: both want your personal information. Though the exact method of collection and type of information will vary, the results can often be the same. Loss of privacy and the compromise of your personal safety can all ensue when your data falls into the wrong hands.
But what information are they after? From your hair color to your bank account number, there’s a lot of stuff to learn about you. By knowing exactly what data to protect, you can better prevent breaches of your personal security. In addition, having the right tools on hand to protect your information will make your life a lot simpler.
