PROJECT: MINIMISING YOUR DIGITAL FOOTPRINT

YOU MAY SHARE THIS PUBLIC DOCUMENT

 

Reducing your digital footprint involves minimising the trail of personal information you leave behind as you navigate

the online world. In an era where digital interactions are ubiquitous, the amount of data we generate and

share online can have significant implications for our privacy, security, and reputation.

Whether it is through social media activity, online purchases,

or browsing history, each digital footprint adds to our online identity.


There are compelling reasons to consciously reduce this footprint. By limiting the exposure of personal information,

individuals can safeguard their privacy, mitigate the risks of identity theft and online exploitation, and exert greater

control over their digital presence. This proactive approach enhances personal security and fosters a more mindful

and responsible engagement with the digital world.


Please refer to our initial project for more context:

 
  • Delete or Deactivate Old Shopping & Social Media Accounts: 

    • Start by identifying any old accounts you no longer use or need.

    • For social media, most platforms offer an option to deactivate or permanently delete your account.

    • For shopping accounts, log in and look for options to close or delete your account.

  • Deactivate Old Email Accounts: 

    • If you have old email accounts that you no longer use, consider deactivating or closing them.

    • This helps reduce the risk of compromised accounts and minimises the amount of personal information associated with them.

  • Check Your Privacy Settings: 

    • Review the privacy settings on your active and online social media accounts.

    • Adjust these settings to limit the information visible to the public or third-party apps and services.

  • Disable Location Tracking: 

    • Many apps and services track your location to provide personalised content or targeted advertising.

    • Disable location tracking for apps that are not necessary for functionality and consider using "ghost mode" or similar features on social media platforms to prevent your location from being shared.

  • Think Before Posting: 

    • Consider the potential consequences before sharing personal information or updates online.

    • Remember that once something is posted online, it can be difficult to delete, even if you delete the original post.

  • Unsubscribe from Mailing Lists: 

    • Regularly review your email inbox for newsletters, promotional emails, and mailing lists you no longer wish to receive.

    • Unsubscribe from these lists to reduce the number of marketing-related emails you receive and limit the exposure of your email address.

  • Use a Virtual Private Network (VPN): 

    • A VPN encrypts your internet connection and routes it through a server in a different location, providing anonymity and online privacy.

    • Consider using a VPN, especially when accessing public Wi-Fi networks or browsing sensitive websites.

 

Following these steps can effectively reduce your digital footprint and better protect your online privacy and security.


Remember that maintaining a low digital footprint requires ongoing attention and

periodic reviews of your online accounts and activities.

EXTREMELY IMPORTANT: All potential clients need to be aware that owing to the nature of our work as specialist investigators there are people who have been caught on the wrong side of the law - who are trying to discredit me - Mike Bolhuis and my organisation Specialised Security Services - to get themselves off the hook. This retaliation happens on social media and creates doubt about our integrity and ability. Doubt created on social media platforms is both unwarranted and untrue. We strongly recommend that you make up your minds concerning me and our organisation only after considering all the factual information - to the exclusion of hearsay and assumptions. Furthermore, you are welcome to address your concerns directly with me should you still be unsatisfied with your conclusions. While the internet provides a lot of valuable information, it is also a platform that distributes a lot of false information. The distribution of false information, fake news, slander and hate speech constitutes a crime that can be prosecuted by law. Your own research discretion and discernment are imperative when choosing what and what not to believe.


STANDARD RULES APPLY: Upon appointment, we require a formal mandate with detailed instructions. Please take note that should you not make use of our services – you may not under any circumstance use my name or the name of my organisation as a means to achieve whatever end.
