Every online interaction we make leaves behind traces of our personal information. Companies we interact with, data brokers, governments, and individuals who are up to no good are all interested in our data.
This reality leaves us exposed to a variety of influence campaigns. These include targeted online advertising, political and social manipulation via fake news, various types of fraud such as identity theft, and addictive apps and online services. All of which are made possible by the abundance of personal information we leave behind.
So how do we get it back under control?
