Do you think your safe on the internet? Do you think you can hide behind proxies? Do you think your anonymous on the internet? Are you sure?!?

Tell me what you see in the top right corner...

Now tell me how anonymous you think you are on the internet...

yup, they pinned me down to be one of about 6 million users in my area alright.
I was glad to see my browser security was listed as "strong" at least. :thumbsup:

They're just trying to lul you into a false sense of security. :thumbsup:

The first time I incountered this was at another site, and was responding to a question, and the person posted the same type of information and asked "how do you like me now"?, and I responded "boiled"! :flowers:

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Hahahahahaha... This is great, it put me "Near Atlanta, Georgia." I live nowhere close to the state of Georgia!! Another thing, my IP was displayed wrong too. I wonder...

Still, the basic "what does the internet know about you" question is one that is at the foundation level of what we as users should be aware of. It also becomes an issue of greater magnituse when malware enters the picture.

Good question/topic
