The Internet can be a scary place, especially after the recent reports of criminals stealing data, identity theft and even how some governments are spying on their own citizens.
Rijeka, Croatia (PRWEB) July 08, 2013
Badosoft Ltd., a collaborative group of software and hardware experts, has recently released Privacy Optimizer to keep Internet users safe from spies and data thieves. The software allows users to protect files & folders, securely delete files and offers options for safely storing passwords and credit card details, while preventing visits of websites or the installation of software with known privacy issues.
"The Internet can be a scary place, especially after the recent reports of criminals stealing data, identity theft and even how some governments are spying on their own citizens," said the press spokesman of Badosoft. "Luckily, you can take smart steps to prevent this from happening.. and our Privacy Optimizer is a great way to allow you to more safely surf the Internet."
Referring to several crime syndicates who have created duplicate credit cards from stolen information, and the recent news from the United States' NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, the chief developer of Badosoft knows that data theft has been around for decades and will always be a part of the Internet age. Recent reports indicate that cyber crime increases at a rate of 20% per year, but the press spokesman of Badosoft knows that law-abiding Internet users can avoid falling into this trap of identity or data theft.
Badosoft's Privacy Optimizer is the missing link in the chain of Internet security. Some freeware versions of firewalls or anti-virus scanners will replace your current security, but Privacy Optimizer will assist - not replace - any other Internet security tool. Plus, with so much online shopping and job applications, personal information can be compromised without the right preventative measures. Keyloggers and harmful websites have altered the way people can trust certain parts of the Internet, but Privacy Optimizer works to keep users' data secure.
"With the spread of online bulletin boards and malicious websites, some criminals don't even know how to understand or study computer code like professional hackers," said the chief developer of Badosoft. "Sometimes it's a simple program they installed on an illicit website, but Privacy Optimizer will take notice when something doesn't seem legit and will prevent these criminals from stealing your data."
Programmers at Badosoft also recommend a few steps to keep your online privacy safe:
- delete cookies and your Internet cache (under "Options" in the Internet browser) every week or so, as some websites require these cookies but usually not longer than a few days
- although the home Internet provider should do so, unplug the router every few days to reset the IP address manually, if possible
- unplug or cover up any unused devices, such as the integrated webcam or card reader on the laptop or PC; a piece of electrical tape can cheaply solve that problem
- make sure a Firewall is installed, especially if a wireless connection is used
- use anti-virus and preventative software besides Privacy Optimizer
think twice before installing software on the computer and think thrice before visiting unknown websites
do not keep unprotected sensible or delicate data on the computer, rather burn it on a CD or DVD
Badosoft's programmers believe that the best feature of Privacy Optimizer is that users do not need to monitor the program, because it can monitor itself. This means that users don't need to wonder about running a system scan or checking to see if a program with known privacy issues has been installed. Social media, online shopping and the Internet will become a more stress-free environment again.
Privacy Optimizer also comes with a Tools Suite, providing 10 valuable features to help users protect their personal information and use the Internet in a safe manner. These tools let each individual user choose optimal privacy settings, they protect information such as credit card numbers, and users can even become anonymous on the Internet by hiding their IP addresses and using the integrated anonymous web browser.
"We want every Internet user to operate in a stress-free place and enjoy the gifts of this online community, so our Privacy Optimizer is available to download also as a free version (basic protection) from our website," said the chief developer of Badosoft. "For fighting off data thieves and criminal hackers, smart computer users should download Privacy Optimizer and see how easy this protection can be!"
