What Is A Digital Identity?

Your digital identity is the sum of all your personal information stored online that can be traced back to you. It’s often an alarmingly detailed profile compiled from:

  • Your search history
  • Your online purchases
  • Your online accounts
  • Your tagged photographs

There are a few things you can do right now to improve your online privacy. Perhaps most important is to avoid posting personal information to social media and log out of online accounts when you’re not using them. Also, be careful where you click. The internet is a minefield of malware and phishing scams, all of which can seriously compromise your privacy and your financial information.

You should also start using a reputable VPN. A VPN encrypts all your internet traffic, making it unreadable to everyone except you and your destination website. It also hides your IP address, so you’re not giving away your location while browsing. And if you choose PIA’s VPN, you’ll also be protected against being targeted by ads, trackers, and malicious sites, thanks to our built-in ad blocker, PIA MACE.

No. Nothing can make you completely anonymous or untraceable online. That said, using a VPN with a proven No Logs policy makes you much more anonymous and difficult to trace. Not all VPN providers who advertise a No Logs policy can back it up. That’s why you need PIA. Not only has our No Logs policy been proven in court on several occasions, but Deloitte inspected our server configuration/environment and examined how we maintain a zero-log VPN service through an independent audit (the report is available to our customers and can be read here). If you want to add an extra layer of identity protection, PIA also accepts anonymous payment methods such as cryptocurrencies and third-party gift cards.

Modern browsers are getting better at catering to their users’ privacy needs, but since everyone’s need is different, the answer inevitably is: It depends.

A better question might be: How do I protect my privacy while browsing the internet? A good answer is: Use a premium VPN that provides browser extension apps and offers a range of extra privacy settings for the highest level of protection online. PIA’s VPN offers browser extensions for Firefox, Chrome, and Opera, meaning you can enjoy greatly increased privacy on your preferred browser in just a few clicks.

Maybe. Tor is an effective way of making yourself hard to trace online, but it’s by no means without its own risks. The wide distribution of Tor servers (or ‘nodes’) makes it very effective at covering your tracks. But because anyone can set up their own node on the Tor network, you have no assurance that your data isn’t being spied on by your exit node (the node that decrypts your data).

Using a premium VPN with a strict no-logs policy like PIA will protect you against this potential vulnerability.
