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.

app-sheildI 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. mypermissions mobile appYou 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.

  1. This is a great piece Bryan – and important to balance privacy and security with active engagement on open platforms. It is interesting that Reputation.com also acquired a cloud vaulting firm this week and is looking to expand further into the social engagement and privacy arena.

    I’ve been testing a browser extension (works on Safari, Chrome and Firefox to my knowledge) called Ghostery via a tip from Leo Laporte’s weekly netcast TWiT (This Week in Tech). Ed Bott was a guest and discussed it. Incredible app that shows you the beacons and trackers that are not clearly visible on every site.

    Great article and topic. I have been using MyPermissions for about four months. Recently, I have been getting alerts showing that permissions have been shared with several unknown websites (that also don’t show up on permissions dashboard). Has anyone else had this experience?

  3. Bryan Mills says:

    Blane-Thank you for taking the time to read and comment on my article. I happen to agree with you that balance is important. I would love to hear and try anything else that you happen to find cutting edge. As we all know…what’s new today is old tomorrow. I love people and companies that strive for simplicity, style and refinement.
