What is a digital footprint?

A digital footprint is one’s unique set of digital activities, actions and communications online. It is a collection of data that is created by means of the websites you visit or social media. This data may be actively or passively collected by other parties allowing them to paint a picture of who you are.

Some people could care less about this while others would rather keep their identity anonymous, and that is a right that we should all have as digital citizens.

How to hide your digital footprint

The best way to hide your digital footprint is through the use of a VPN. A VPN works by securing your computer’s internet connection by changing your IP address, guaranteeing that all of the data you’re sending and receiving is encrypted and secured from prying eyes.
