Privacy Freedome Challenge - Be Invisible Online (And Win an iPad Mini)


Have you declared your freedome yet? Today, I want to challenge YOU to declaring your freedome online. Why am I spelling "freedom" that way? It's because it's the new app by F-Secure called the Freedome App. You can download it today and receive a 90-day free trial.

So far since downloading the app, I've seen so many things protected and it's been such a safe feeling. I can't wait for the next time I'm using public Wi-Fi, I will not have to worry about my online security. Best of all, you don't have to worry about removing your existing security software. It runs right along side it.

Here's how you can get Freedome for 90 days free (and I know you'll be convinced to purchase it!). Just follow this link to download it and once installed, use the code:  qsf257.

Best of all, I am SO excited to announce that I get to giveaway an iPad Mini (16 GB Wifi) PLUS one year of Freedome.

Just use the Rafflecopter below and the giveaway ends on 2/27.

Have you declared your Freedome yet?

I received compensation for my work with F-Secure. All opinions are my own.

  1. Changing your passwords regularly, only entering private info on secure and encrypted sites, avoiding sending emails with financial info, etc., are all good ways of helping protect your identity online.

  2. Change your passwords often. Try to avoid public WiFi.

  3. Don't save your pass anywhere on your computer, change it often, and if possible use symbols in it along with the letters/numbers. Never click a link in an email that is reporting trouble to you (i.e. a supposed email saying your account somewhere is compromised or needs updated). Instead, go directly to the site (if you have an account there) by typing the address in your browser yourself. Then log in that way. Never use the link that is given to fill out personal info in these types of email. Lastly, before you post anything personal on social media, remember that once it's online, it's out there. It freaks me out when I see people posting their home numbers on FB to one particular friend but the posts are set for everyone to see the number. It's always better to be a little cautious than not at all.
