This article from the Washington Post published June 1, 2018, and entitled, Hands off my data! 15 default privacy settings you should change right now, will be of interest to those who want to gain as much control as possible over data sharing by these entities.

Good find Brian!


Mentioning entity data sharing, I had a bit of a giggle when attempting to access the article in the Washington Post.


They say Im not supporting 'Great Journalism' because I use an Ad Blocker.....lol

My choices were to turn-off the blocker, or pay for a subscription fee before access is allowed.


I wonder if the WP support 'Great Internet Privacy'  :hysterical:
