pretty Easy privacy (abbreviated as p≡p) is a cyber security solution which protects the confidentiality and reliability of communications for citizens, for public offices and for enterprises. It provides end-to-end cryptography through software that you install on your desktop or your tablet or your phone. To exchange secure messages, you and your communication partner both need to install p≡p on your devices (e.g. computer, smartphone). After the installation you can start exchanging messages without any configuration. All messages (except the very first one) will be secured by p≡p. You can see this by the Privacy Status, which will be yellow (Secure).

There are lots and lots of people around the world using the internet. Most of these people use it to communicate with friends, business partners or to publish something. But every now and then we see news about computer viruses and usernames being stolen. If you use the internet, you have to protect your computer, which is a pretty decent task to begin with. Here are some things you can do to protect your computer, your emails and your accounts.

An email might carry simple information like "I love you" or it might have a more delicate subject line. You can protect your computer by avoiding or banning emails that don't need your personal details. It might be a good idea to use separate email accounts for personal, official and for business.

You can also keep track of which emails are entering your inbox pitifully, by obliging Google to keep you abreast of emails entering your inbox. You can also sign up to any number of email lists, where you receive emails from people you don't know, but you seem to like the messages they have. Then you MX records are kept on your computer, so that you can independently confirm which emails to allow in your inbox.

Storing a second email address isn't a bad idea either. You might think that since your first email address is with a Gmail, that you might not have to change it. Well, this is usually the case, but if you've reached this stage, then you are going to have to think about changing to another service provider. If you've reached this stage, then you are going to have to think about changing to another service provider.

For the next step, you'll need to find a reseller. If you keep carry on with your current email service provider, then for this you will need to have another email address that you can use. If you use Microsoft Exchange, then they will ask for your permission before they sell your email address to another company Without any notification, simply because they will be acting in the public interest, as they sell any email lists to third parties. There are Government departments that regularly check into the purchases that they require of firms, to make sure that there is nothing unethical in them.

If you are still using your old PC and you aren't joining a Miyabi service, then you will have to make sure that you delete all the files that are associated with the old email domain. Usually, Spammers will send a email that they think is from somebody that they know. Spammers usually try to collect data for malarious purposes, which usually involves sending spam. If you haven't emptied out your trash bin lately, then you might be getting a lot of these emails. If you have an anti-spyware program, you might be even getting some that don't belong. Make sure your anti-spyware is up to date, and that you are using programs like Spybot Search and Destroy.

Spammers will also use spoofing programs to think that they are visiting sites that can deliver their message. It is important to make sure that you are not visiting sites that will infect your computer with a virus. To do this, you will want to visit Microsoft's website and download all patches that are posted. When you get them, install them, and then update the anti-virus software that comes with your computer.

Having an anti-virus program is not enough, you will also want to make sure that you download and install every update that is posted on the program's website. An anti-virus program is useless if it does not have a firewall attachment. Fortunately, there are many anti-virus programs that you can use without a firewall. Internet Security Suite from Norton is one of the better known ones.
