Unroll Me Gives Soem Pointers on How to Safeguard Your Private Information

If you want to get a handle on the hundreds of emails that seem to continuously stream in by the day, Unroll Me has a solution. Unroll Me is all about getting rid of and preventing emails from getting to your inbox. You can even use their feature to unsubscribe from various senders. Most people these days suffer from inbox overload and Unroll Me is a great way to combat unwanted emails.

Unroll Me works by accessing your inbox to sync messages to their servers in order to archive messages somewhere besides your inbox. It’s basically a proxy for your inbox and will save you a significant amount of time since you don’t have to spend the time sifting through countless emails.

Unroll Me suggests that with the beginning of a New Year, you should implement a few habits when it comes to your personal information and privacy. For one, you should update your software to avoid a cyber attack. You should always read the privacy policy before signing up to anything. Most privacy policies will contain something that you may not want to agree to, but so many people do it anyway because they simply did not read the disclosure. Then they wonder why their personal information’s getting your there and being sold to companies for marketing purposes.

Another tip that Unroll Me recommends to follow this year and every year is to delete any unnecessary apps. Even if you are not using an app anymore, doesn’t mean that companies will stop harvesting your private information. Third-party apps and web services can still have access to your data even if you got the app last year and had forgotten that it is even on your phone.

Unroll Me also advises always to use a VPN. A VPN will basically cloak what you do and where you go on the internet so that broadband providers such as Charter and Comcast will not be able to track and sell your information about the type of browsing that you do. Don’t forget to protect your hardware with a screen protector and case.
