I think for the vast majority of users, the issues boil down to common sense:

  • use only strong passwords and do not share them across different sites
  • Be aware that every site you visit has the potential to track you and most do. Many of the most poplar surfing sites are the worst.
  • Check regularly that you haven’t had trolls, malware, etc installed on your machine.
  • Never enter personal data on any site that is not secure.
  • never enter personal data onto “cloud” servers
  • Never open emails received from locations you don’t recognize.
  • be sure your ISP utilises tools that filter / manage known harmful sites
  • Block or do not open links that are included in social media posts unless you are positive they are safe
