“I’m watching you,”—it’s a phrase straight out of a suspense-thriller and sadly, not necessarily the stuff Hollywood scary movies are made of. In this day and age, there’s a very likely and creepy possibility that someone is indeed watching you whenever you go online.

The Internet is such a vast and incredible repository of information and recreational sites that it’s impossible to tell which ones will leave you vulnerable to intrusion attacks. One could simply be browsing through movie schedules or checking online menus and you could very well already be a target for malicious cyber-attacks, including one of the most serious online concerns today, identity theft.

With the increase in popularity of the Internet, methods of communication have also shifted. Social networking sites have become a very common and preferred way to keep in touch with friends and family abroad. Sites like Facebook and Twitter are among the networking platforms being used today where both personal and professional information is shared online. And for all the convenience it provides, it also leaves one vulnerable to intrusion given that a simple Google search can easily pull up your Facebook or Twitter profiles, given hackers access to information such as your home address, phone number, income level and employment history.

The right security settings and ideal protection tools can serve to protect your privacy from potential stalkers and malicious online intruders. Identity management tools have been used for identity theft protection and privacy protection for online finances, reputation and general safety.

1. It can provide constant alerts when you open new accounts online and every time you perform any kind of financial transaction on the Internet, including emails and messages.

2. With its stringent monitoring across all search engines, social networks and websites, you can even look into the existing online information they have on you online.

3. It can help determine risk levels and level of vulnerability your entire system has for identity theft. And it can constantly monitor your online activities to help you fight against potential attacks.

4. The status summary will help you determine the state of your reputation online and show you what, when, where and how your information is being used.

5. The privacy monitor option will make you aware of the exposure level of your online identities and will recommend you to double-check your privacy settings, especially for social networking sites like Facebook.

6. It can offer expert recommendations and alerts against potential a privacy breach and privacy settings you can control to protect your privacy.
