I love the Internet and I also love my “so called social media and internet search privacy,” while using this powerful tool. Your social media can become a cluttered bag of forgotten permissions with all these newly connected services. Everyone from Twitter, Facebook, Google and LinkedIn all have what are called linked apps. It’s nice to signup for new cloud-based services or apps that connect with your existing services, however, what happens to your information once you are using or stop using those free apps? Why talk about this? Well, if you haven’t already heard about a collaboration between the NSA, FBI, and nearly every tech company you rely on called “PRISM,” you would realize everyone is interested in what you do on the web.
I have found an easy and fun-to-use solution to get your “digital rights” in order and in control.
MyPermissions is like your “social media bodyguard with a X-ray scanner.” This simple, must have security tool will protect users from unknowingly sharing photos, documents, locations, contacts, emails or other sensitive information online. You may access the passport-like screen from your iOS or Android device or desktop. You can allow, approve or revoke what apps access your data and how with “one-click.” I don’t want to sound like I’m paranoid, however, your personal data in the digital age is currency. Without users, platforms are irrelevant. MyPermissions says they don’t, and never will, sell or rent your private information with any 3rd party. They only utilize your data in an anonymous and aggregated manner to improve their system. MyPermissions’ objective is to create a deeper level of transparency for users and developers that will make the Internet a safe and secure place for all…amen.
