Is someone tracking your online activities?!

Do you ever feel like you’re being followed on the internet?

Each time you visit a website, a cookie is stored in the bowels of your files and someone, somewhere is tracking your visits.

When you go shopping, do some reading or or sightseeing online, there’s a record of where you’ve been. For instance, if you visit Borders, Mapquest.com or Starbucks websites, you can be sure that soon after you’ll see coffee specials, travel deals or new book titles on the right side of your screen. Yes, the stalker is sitting on your shoulder.

Want to mess with the man?

There are 2 simple things you can do today to interrupt those eyes that see all, know all, tell all…

1>    Download and run CCleaner : it’s the #1 tool for cleaning your Windows PC. It protects your privacy online and makes your computer faster and more secure. Easy to use and a small, fast download and it’s FREE. (I have it on my pc and laptop and run it on a regular basis.)

2>   Sites can track the links you click and pages you visit by following your IP address: To get another IP address on a daily or regular basis, go to your internet modem and unplug for about a minute. Then plug it back in, wait for all the lights to come back on and you’re free to roam without your ‘big brother’ right on your tail. Just like flossing, do it every day and keep the decay away!

Remember  — Use CCleaner and unplug.

Simple, easy, free and clever… go for it!
