Summary for the Most Privacy Conscious

To enhance the level of privacy of information on the PC that you use, do the following:

  • On your PC, keep only private information that you are willing to disclose to others.

  • Share your PC with no one, or with no one you don't trust.

  • Use disk-level encryption to protect the entire PC.

  • Use Windows 2000 or NT (instead of Windows 98, 95, or Me).

  • Use file-level encryption to protect passwords, encryption keys, and most sensitive files.

  • Keep your Web site history short.

  • Regularly erase unneeded information using tools that truly overwrite information.
