On the last episode of Getting Social with Miriam, I covered the ugly fact about your privacy online. Yup, that is right- everything you save on platforms like Dropbox or Evernote is not as safe as you think. Your data is not as secure as you may believe. I spoke to Janine Darling, the CEO of Stash America about the truth about how “safe” your content and data is online.

Janine and I talked about topics covering identity theft and online shopping. The truth about how often identity theft happens is not a pleasant one to know, but it is definitely important to be aware of.

We spoke about the reality of hackers, and why it is important to save your passwords every few months. We spoke about the real reason it is important to have a variety of characters in your passwords. Janine and I also covered the reality of what happens if you share something inappropriate on social media that you end up deleting after. The truth about your online privacy was completely covered, and I have to say it is quite unsettling. However, everyone needs to be aware about the safety of their content and data. Please listen to the podcast, it is for your own good!

    Hi Miriam,

    I hadn’t heard of Stash America, so this is great info. I like Janine’s advice
    on conveying who you are in public with a degree of modesty… remembering
    who you are and what you stand for… instead of losing your calm in the
    heat of a moment for all of the world to see. Thanks for the caution again on
    online banking and passwords. I think we tend to forget. Great podcast.
    Thanks for sharing it.

    Hi Miriam,

    Great podcast with Janine about Stash America. What a great story of how she started to crate this.
    I always have the feeling that nothing we do online is really safe no matter what. Although I am super careful things can happen anytime.
    We do need to be careful of how much private information we put out there. We have to keep in mind there are hackers and they will never go away. So, that being said, Never put your maiden name, or name your mom out there, No addresses, and especially for heaven’s sakes…don’t shout out you are away from home. These are some of the things I do.
    But one never knows

      Thanks for listening Donna, you have to be so careful with everything as we are more vulnerable than we think!

    I had a look at Stash and was surprised to learn how affordable it is. Although security is paramount we also keep data on our computers that we’d just hate to lose. Back up drives are not too reliable. We’ve had quite a few that died after a while, the data often unrecoverable.

    I cancelled a credit card subscription a few months back only to find that the charge is still going through. I’ve had no success contacting the company charging me. I was dismayed to learn that the only way I can stop the payment is to cancel the credit card itself. With so many direct debits going through, setting them up on a new card will be a long process.

    Hi Miriam, for saving data, passwords I use the browser plug-in Chrome., called LastPass, a password it and I recommend its use while maintaining access to sites on the Internet on various platforms.

      I use that one as well, very handy.
