  2. privacy Protection

    Hi,

    We would like ask a few questions to better assist you.

    • What is the model of your phone and which version of Windows is currently installed?
    • Can you provide us more information about the Privacy Protection that you're referring to?

    Regards.

    Looking to secure my privacy

    I have been thinking about my privacy and how private and secure all my data and communications really is. Snowden and NSA has really exposed how open our data and private information really is, not that I or most people have something to hide but do I really want the government ready my steamy texts to my significant other?
    So the question is how do you protect yourself? Obviously a typewriter and the post office can at least protect your content, even if the government knows when and who you sent the letter to.
    Basically my communications devices are:
    Phone – phone calls, text messages and emails
    Computer – emails and instant messaging
    Sorry for putting all these questions in one post, but they are all connected to the main question how do you protect yourself.
    For my cell phone, I am using Tigertext secure texting for all my text messages, which auto delete the messages and allow me to do a remote wipe. For my photos, I immediately move the images to my dropbox account and delete them from the phone.
    So, the phone security questions I have are:
    1) How do I protect my contacts, meaning is I lose my phone how can I make it so someone who hacks the phone isn’t able to get them get them? What about my call logs?
    2) can someone hack my phone while I am using it, and get my contacts, call logs and other stuff, and if so how can I prevent this from happening?
    3) What about my emails, can I secure them as well like my text messages?
    For my computer, I am using ZoneAlarms firewall, and Malwarebytes anti virus. I have lots of images and documents on my computer.
    My computer security questions are:
    1) How can I secure my email – I use gmail and yahoo, but don’t use outlook.
    2) Are my images and doc more secure on my computer, or in the cloud on Dropbox or another cloud service?
    3) Can my Skype messaging and conversation be recorded or logs by our government or anyone else, and is there a way to protect them?
    Any advice or suggestion on these questions would be a great help, thanx.
