Despise to say this but, the need of the hour is being compromised by other subjects which are anecdotal & pointless.
Dear aliens, strangers & my fellow bloggers with Non-IT foundations, you must’ve tuned in to different news & social media posts claiming the breach of user’s information/data from different companies.
“Don’t please, If you don’t mind don’t! Don’t press the back or close icon yet” Look, I get it. These things appear boring & why shouldn’t they?
You guys are doing your jobs, planning for the future, handling awful kids (apologies), stress, anxiety & a hell lot of more. Then why you should be the one to care for these things? Why not those programmers or ethical specialists working within the organization?
Most importantly, why not these various companies?
I’ll make it quick `~` Companies don’t give a damn about your privacy or data. They give it to other to others and earn revenue. But, they do it in a governed manner or I should say enough to not get imprisoned. (More in See last 2 paras.)
I know that this data is what is used to market things to people, so I can’t be totally against it, but it’s still kind of scary to think about how many strangers or unauthorized companies can know far too much about you, even if you are a safe, responsible person online.
Now, breaching happens when a hacker attack on servers, gets into the database(not physically) & gains some encrypted data. He/she decrypts it & wallha… your IP address, mobile no, home address, email-id & much more are compromised.
Companies like Facebook, Big basket, Amazon, Apple, Microsoft, True caller & the list goes on are more vulnerable even after hiring the best cybersecurity specialists.
Hackers put your credentials on the dark web for sale.
(What is the dark web? Dark web)
Why you should believe me? See below image–
This is the data of over 5 crore Indians and the USA. It consists of IP address, mobile no, home address, name, and email. Enough to exploit or harm anyone up to a certain level which no one can undo.
It was breached 2 months ago & was listed as one of the highest breaches
I can provide some identities of those who suffered from these but, that’s really sensitive content. (Mail me if you want)
Ultimate solution– My utmost request to everyone- Stop using true caller. It’s for the best. Reason True caller wondering
Whenever you install an app in which you have to put your address, try not to put the exact house number if it isn’t official work.
Don’t use a clear profile pic. Make it blurry regardless of any application you use.
Don’t click on any random popup or link.
If you’re a parent then always keep a close look at what your children are browsing or whom they’re talking to if they’re minors.

Remember~ PRIVACY theft is like a biological virus. You may think that it won’t happen to you but man!! It will if you don’t take precautions.
I’ve tried to make this post as simple as possible and easier to understand. Hope you’ll learn and apply at least a single change of what’s listed.
