While online privacy is well recognized as a matter of paramount consideration, global internet users surprisingly, aren’t doing enough to protect it.

In a statista survey, over 2.14 billion people worldwide are forecast to shop online in 2021. There were reportedly 1.66 billion global digital buyers in 2016.

The global economic story has all to take encouragement from this fact; however it also leaves open avenues for exposed privacy.

Users aren’t naive to modern day online practices where every website tracks its visitors’ behaviour to target them later, based on their history.

Growing social trends aren’t healthy either. Today, an average person has 5 social media accounts and spend over 1.5 hours on the net which accounts for nearly 30% of his daily internet time.

With so much dependence on internet, it’s understandably difficult to imagine a life without web. However, a change to our internet habits is imperative if we are to expect a modest online experience.

See this infographic for some more useful tips to protect online privacy.
