You may be under the impression that your personal information is safe, secure, and private. Just how much information about you winds up on the Internet. You would be surprised!
Do a search for yourself on Pipl - People Search Directory. Did the search come up with your name, social media profiles and possibly even your parent's names, address, and telephone number too?
Pipl is NOT a private database or a secret hacker site. It is a repository of publicly available online data, all of which businesses and advertisers are eager to get a hold of. This type of data mining is completely legal. Most of this information is what YOU put online.
If you are worried about identity theft or not fond of the idea that others can track your every move, there are a few things you can do to help keep your online data private.
