MacVoices #17096: Joe Kissell Revises Take Control of Your Online Privacy

Joe Kissell is back with an important new edition of Take Control of Your Online Privacy, and an important discussion about the rapidly-changing online environments that we all frequent. Joe outlines some of the factors that led him to make this the third edition of his guide to protecting yourself online, including changes in the laws surrounding your web surfing, recent developments with television camera security and Internet of Things devices, and new methods the bad guys are using to fool you. He talks VPNs, making choices between security and convenience, and shares a disturbing story about how some of his research and recommendations were changed without his permission.

This edition of MacVoices is supported by MacVoices Magazine, our free magazine on Flipboard that helps you do more with your Apple tech.
