The government can read your emails, marketers can target ads based on your search history, and crooks can kidnap your data. Former hacker, Kevin Mitnick, now a computer security consultant, says you can minimize surveillance and cyberattacks by becoming “invisible” online – obscuring your identity and your trail. He explains these strategies with a minimum of tech jargon and a maximum of hands on utility. Most of his tactics are straightforward, though just a few require huge effort. Unless you’re on the run from INTERPOL, they might be overkill. He offers illuminating chapters on strong passwords, public Wi-Fi and encrypted communication, all a big help to any member of today’s technological society.
