A blog about me, my doings and everything I think deserves attention.

online privacy

I just found http://www.ip-adress.com/ and I thought some of you people out there would be interested. You leave your IP-address everytime you visit a homepage, download a song, send an instant message or chat on IRC. This means that a lot of people can trace you.
I’ve not seen a this accurate trace until today and I would like to encourage you people to keep in touch with encryption and proxy methods.
Maybe you think this is useless but in fact you should not be this careless with your private data. Doesn’t the feeling that someone could read every of your emails creep you out?

shortforms:
A proxy “hides” your IP-address and encryptions make it harder to sniff your private data.
