Darius Fisher Offers Ways to Protect Yourself Online
Darius Fisher wants to make sure everyone is able to protect their identity online. There are a few different ways to do this but the Status Labs president wants to make sure everyone has the knowledge for doing this. Now, in order to take it to the next, professional level and to monitor everything posted about an individual in real time, Status Labs is able to assist with this. However, for general purposes, Darius Fisher provides these different tips.
First, Darius Fisher points out that someone needs to log out of all of their accounts before searching for themselves. If they are logged in the search field is going to automatically showcase the accounts they are logged into. It is also important to clear out the Internet cache and browsing history. This way, they receive search results that are not tailored to their previous Internet history and provides a better understanding of what is found online.
From there, a user is able to look through the first few pages of their results and find out if there is anything negative written about them. This can be everything from undesirable pictures to older posts on social media that someone might want to have removed. There are times where some content just can’t be removed. At times it might on be a person’s own social media account where having it removed isn’t all that difficult. However, there are other times where someone else has posted it. There are a few ways to work around this.
First, as Darius Fisher points out, developing new content is a good idea to offer search engines. This way, it can push the negative content out of the way and can help the new content reach the top. It also helps keep the algorithms current and fresh. It is also possible to turn to a professional service such as Status Labs in order to help rid the Internet of this negative content. On top of it all, there are data brokers like PeopleSmart, Spokeo, Intelius and other websites that collect data on everyone and provide it to buyers online. However, these websites have opt-out forms that delete a person’s information from the services available. If some of the top search results that appear are found here, an individual just needs to fill out the opt out forms and submit the information. That way, they can be removed from these data brokers as well.
