How to Protect Yourself and Your Information.

How to Protect Yourself and Important Informations. There are many simple steps that can be taken to protect your privacy online. Automatically removing your browsing history and cookies is one of the most obvious — but rarely done.

If you are a normal adult, you probably have multiple online accounts, such as: email, Internet banking, webmail, instant messaging, and/or forums accounts. If you also have other social networking accounts such as Myspace or Facebook, you are likely to have sent at least some of your photos online to friends, posted some reviews about areas you lived, or posted your resume for employers to check. Because this information can be used to make you more likely to get targeted for further crimes, you may want to keep this information to a minimum.

Spending any time online in the last two weeks, with all your activity restricted to your local computer and screen, is not a good idea. Make sure you have the privacy protection software that will turn off all the background activity, save your computer from installing software in the future, and help you remove unwanted information from your computer. Learn how to use safe browsing tools like Firefox, sign up for PC penetration testing services like SureBlock, and run a privacy test to see how sure companies are that they are not collecting wrong information.

Be sure to install the privacy protection software that will give you the protection you need. While many software packages mentioned here will work for you, nobody will ever be able to guarantee 100% privacy. The ads are still there, and will show no indication the activity has been stopped.

You must be able to trust the company that can provide you the protection you need. Check their license agreement, privacy statement, and possibly their refund policy. Also check out their privacy policy for gifts or other things you didn’t ask for.

This is a serious business. Do not hesitate to get the best privacy protection software out there. With all the changes being made everyday to improve lives, it’s important to be updated on the changes and perhaps save yourself some serious problems.

If you are an eBay seller, your listing is published on the eBay Partner ( and your seller page is displayed on the eBay website. If you are a seller operating a separate eBay account, you are listed on both sites. Therefore, if you sell on both sites, you are listed twice.

To determine which of your sellers’ accounts have shared information, log on to eBay by typing www// will bring up the eBay help site, which will have the information posted). Look at the help piece you are given and determine which of the sellers listed under your seller’s name has a combined total of

a) 1000 auctions, b) Onceched items, c) Reposted Lots, d) Serials.

a.1000 auctions = A very large number. Usually, if two or more people have the same eBay account number, the higher the number is.

b. Onceched items = An item that has been previously sold. So, items that have been sold several times on eBay are reflected in the number of auctions displayed.

c. Reposted Lots = An item that is listed with seller feedback, but seller’s information has been reposted to another eBay user’s account.

d. Serials = The number of the seller’s active eBay account. If a seller has been selling on eBay for years, and is posting their items with feedback, their number of auctions should be much higher than the number of auctions shown in the listing.

e. The number of auctions for items that have never been sold on eBay. Most of these items would be considered to be ” rarity “.

I decided to look at some of the accounts I have at eBay to determine which ones I had listed with sellers and which ones I had not. For some reason I had been unaware of the fact that my auction was being shared with 12 other auction sites and was spending time, money and effort in sending auctions that would otherwise be lost.

Below is a list of the accounts and the amounts of revenue lost, either directly or indirectly through the use of my auction service. As you can see, the amounts are significant:

Account Paid From eBay Shared With 3 Other Sites#1 $25.00 USD#2 $50.00 USD#3 $75.00 USD

Considering I received payments from these sellers directly into my bank account, and they directly deposited the money, I was shocked to see that not only were they losing money, but they were possibly breaking the law by selling my auction service on eBay.
