Protecting your privacy on the Internet

Press Release   •   Nov 11, 2010 05:11 EST

Lately there have been numerous articles around the world, describing the Firefox plugin/add-on Firesheep, that lets anyone hijack other people's accuonts on Facebook, Twitter, Google etc. Due to the release of such a tool, that does not require any hacking skills what so ever, antifiresheep.org was created in order to inform on what to do to keep our privacy private on the Internet.

How can we protect our privacy on the Internet when developers of the largest social services don't use secure solutions? That is the main question, and also the motive for development of Firesheep according to the developer Eric Butler.

The main issue seems to be that social services don't use secure protocols to transport our personal data, such as passwords, but there is a lot more to it. People need to become a lot more aware of how to handle personal information on the Internet. antifiresheep.org was created to inform on how to do this, as plain and simple as possible.
