Seattle, WA (PRWEB) May 23, 2012
With personal privacy at the top of Internet users lists of concerns, Priveazy.com has launched to provide fun lessons that show consumers exactly how to protect their privacy and safety online. As Consumer Reports discovered recently, millions of users of the social network Facebook have not set their privacy controls and in a recent PEW study half of social media users report some difficulty in managing the privacy controls on their profiles.
“What can Internet users do to protect their privacy and stay safe online?” asked Jay Herbison, CEO and Founder of Priveazy.com. “With the rapid pace of technological change, this is one of the thorniest problems that Internet users encounter. We created Priveazy to be a unique educational platform that helps solve this problem by giving users practical privacy and safety information, all in one place, and always kept up-to-date.”
According to PEW, 48% of social media users report some difficulty in managing their privacy settings. “We hope to provide an easy to use and easy to understand educational platform that removes the feeling that it is difficult to manage your personal privacy and safety online,” said Jay Herbison. “Priveazy.com is designed to be the place where your kids, you and your Mom can all learn quickly how to manage privacy on the Internet and then feel better moving on to doing what you want to do online.”
Priveazy.com is more than just education. The most important feature is the Priveazy.com tasks for each of the major social networks and web services such as Facebook, Google, and Linkedin. These tasks contain step-by-step instructions that show users exactly how to better protect their devices, information, and online accounts.
In addition to tasks, the three other key features of Priveazy.com are lessons, quizzes, and video tutorials. With the power of these features, the Priveazy.com platform allows users to quickly learn the key points of various important topics. When users know how to better protect their personal information online, they make better informed day-to-day decisions.
As a mother of two recently remarked, “Honestly, this was an excellent learning tool and I am excited to continue with my Priveazy classes... easy to understand, interesting content, and is applicable to the individual. Thank you!"
