10 Useful Websites to Stop Others From Snooping on You

People probably don’t realize, just how often and in how many ways that total strangers are snooping in their lives. Whether the snooping means are video cameras, cell phones or through the Internet there are thousands of businesses, people and governments all up our personal business and lives.


Every time a person fills out a contest entry, sweepstakes form, survey application or joins an online community, then chances are the personal information that is used to complete these things are sold, rented or shared with second and third parties without our knowledge.

Most reputable companies or websites will have a privacy statement that explains clearly how they will use the personal information that they collect from their members or customers. Not all websites or companies are reputable, so it is extremely wise to read their privacy statements before handing over any revealing or personal information about you to strangers.

Q: Who is king of internet marketing?
A: Google

Yes, yes, I know, do no evil. In the meantime, Google is slowly building one heck of a user profile database. They’ve got your email, they’ve got your documents, they most likely know your physical address and your phone number. Now they can even triangulate your approximate location in real time via your cell phone. They have the potential to eventually know more about you than you know about yourself but not to worry, they’ll never mis-use any of this information they’re collecting. :)

The following websites are extremely useful to help stop big brother from snooping into your personal business and private lives.

  2. GuerrillaMail

    An excellent way to stop potentially a bunch of unwanted spam from clogging up your inbox is to use GuerrillaMail, so to get a disposable email address to use anytime your personal email address in required.
