Hiding From The Internet (2018 4th Edition)

Take control of your privacy by removing
your personal information from the internet

In this new edition, I share my methods for removing your personal information from the internet. I expose the resources that broadcast your personal details to public view. I have researched each source and identified the best method to have your private details removed from the databases that store profiles on all of us. This book will serve as a reference guide for anyone that values privacy. Each technique is explained in simple steps. It is written in a hands-on style that encourages the reader to execute the tutorials as they go. I provide personal experiences from my journey to disappear from public view. Much of the content of this book has never been discussed in any publication. Always thinking like a hacker, I identify new ways to force companies to remove you from their data collection systems. This book exposes loopholes that create unique opportunities for privacy seekers. Among other techniques, you will learn to:

Remove your personal information from public databases and people search websites
Create free anonymous mail addresses, email addresses, and telephone numbers
Control your privacy settings on social networks and remove sensitive data
Provide disinformation to conceal true private details
Apply proper security to your computers using free resources
Force data brokers to stop sharing your information with private and public organizations
Prevent marketing companies from monitoring your browsing and shopping habits
Remove your landline and cellular telephone numbers from online websites
Use a credit freeze to eliminate the worry of financial identity theft and fraud
Change your future habits to promote complete privacy and anonymity
Conduct a complete background check to verify proper information removal
Purchase a home or vehicle anonymously
Install a proper home firewall with absolute VPN kill-switch

4th Edition Updates

Do you already have the third edition of this book from 2016? You may want to know what new content is included in this version. Overall, much new information has been added to discuss completely anonymous home purchases, new aliases, home firewalls, and various ways to keep up with the changes that will take place after this book is printed. Approximately one-half of the book is recycled information from the Third Edition, one-fourth is updated details, and one-fourth is completely new content. The first two chapters are practically untouched while an entire new chapter was added toward the end. The Preparation, Personal Data Removal, Anonymous Purchases, and Major Life Event chapters have substantial updates. This version is a 370 page textbook.

In this book, I discuss the various ways to remove your personal information from the internet. A links page was created to assist the readers.
