How do you know what the Internet knows about you?

The "fingerprint" that marks objects like glasses, cutlery, and everything you use on a daily basis, can say a lot about your habits, and in many cases are used in police investigations to identify even items that no one could imagine.

But there is another type of "fingerprint" on the Internet, one that knows absolutely everything about you, and what you do, for example, when reading this article, when accessing a website and how long you stayed on it, what are the Youtube videos you watch, channels you follow, friends of the face, etc.

The large number of items "touched" on the Internet can reveal your habits, habits, ways of thinking, and even determine if you are prone to commit any event or crime before it even happens.

The really digital "fingerprint" can say a lot more about you than you can even know.
People who have accounts on various social networks, and have habits of sharing absolutely everything they do, can be victims of the Internet and be used by others and have their lives compromised.

Some people are unaware of what they share on the internet, on that friend's post on facebook, twitter, instagram, and end up revealing things like "I also like this bag", "I love blue color", "I also have this bike and it is very good "," I also ate pizza from this place "and etc, and end up revealing tastes, financial belongings, and location of the favorite pizzeria.

Chasing someone online, and starting mining posts in order to find relevant data, are currently done by hundreds of robots that scour the network but there is a lot of information that is not easily available, but they are somewhere.

When accessing a website for example, the access record for that website, IP address, date and time, are registered with the content provider (which is the website you accessed) and the date and time the connection started, IP address and client assigned stay with your internet provider (ISP).

By joining these two data, it is possible to know exactly what you did, navigated, etc.

When accessing a public Wi-Fi network, the situation worsens, all data is vulnerable, everyone can connect a smartphone with the Wi-Fi monitor mode, and record all the data that is being trafficked, and break this data later with data mining technologies.

Nobody is safe on the internet, any item is traceable, and I mean in addition, even accessible by the manufacturer and so on.

Recently we saw flaws in Apple computers, where the "root" (superuser) login was free to connect to Mac OS High Sierra, one of the biggest mistakes in history, especially this century, where security priority is a necessity.

Another way to track what you do, is through Google. It knows exactly which sites you access, how long you stay on a particular site, detects your tastes, how to deal with the mouse on the screen, how to browse the internet, and an infinite amount of resources that you can implement to know everything about you.

You are being chased over the Internet by companies simply eager to know even your DNA if possible, all with the focus of research and the transfer of these items to other companies as a new profitable product.

When you visit a site that has Google AdSense ads for example, Google's privacy policy clearly says items that may totally shock you.

Everything you do, research, websites you visit, videos, ads you click on, Google captchas that respond, and any other services that Google may have, as well as items you create, contacts, calendar events, and things that are part of from you.

This is what we're talking about only Google, and there are hundreds of services like Bing, advertising networks like OutBrain, and they all mine data day after day from all their users in order to increase their own revenue from selling ads, click-through conversions , targeting, etc.

If you are a manufacturer of only pink colored cars, disclosing to hundreds of people who only like the color pink, will attract much more attention than just disclosing it to a general public, and this comes with a huge return.

Another simple way to find out what the Internet knows about you, is by searching for your own name on Google, and you can find items that you commented on, created, that are saying things about you to everyone, for free, even if no one is your friend or relative, letting a third party simply know where you live, your phone number, email, or even your Netflix account with your favorite videos.

Caring for and caring for the published and disseminated items, should always be a top priority, because the great reality is that society has totally left the old standard of life: where no one knew where the other person was, and today, everyone knows about everyone.
