Online Security–How Concerned Should Preppers Be?

Now and then I hear from readers who are concerned about online security. How concerned should preppers be about being tracked online? They wonder whether it’s safe to make purchases from my site or other prepper sites. In fact, is it even safe to view such sites?

I’ve assured readers that, to the best of my knowledge, any tracking being done is by advertisers who are more interested in their buyng habits than the government is in gathering data. Of course, that may not always be the case.

The main thing is to practice common sense by not deliberately revealing too much about yourself online.

Back in the spring I interviewed Riverwalker for DestinySurvival Radio on the subject of OP SEC and how preppers can practice discretion to protect themselves and their families. I wrote a post asking the question, Are you protecting one of your most valuable assets?

The asset I was referring to is personal privacy. I’m a firm believer in exercising discretion online. For example, if you look up my personal Facebook page, you’ll learn very little about me personally. In fact, if it weren’t for using Facebook as a tool to drive traffic to this site, I wouldn’t have a Facebook page at all.

But is my aloofness online enough?

Not according to Conrad Jaeger. He’s written an e-book called Deep Web Secrecy and Security – Everything to stay one step ahead of the Bad Guys. I’ve chosen it as a DestinySurvival Amazon Pick because he makes an important contribution to privacy issues for preppers.

The other day I received a press release about Deep Web Secrecy and Security, and I want to share its most important content with you. Draw your own conclusions and see if this e-book is for you.
