It is unfortunately so that the data of our customers on our servers only safely store. No data center is and may claim otherwise. As soon as these data into motion, as soon as they enter the fiber-optic cable of international communications networks, goes out this protection alone due to technical reasons. Light quantum in the lines radiate outward always – and can thus also ” be picked. A solution would be to use an encryption technology, such as, for example, ‘pretty good privacy’, which requires still more work because you must commute to use ‘Key’ again to decipher the messages and mails for mail traffic.
Also, just encrypted messages trigger a higher interest when the investigators of all data. Also operating systems such as Linux are less susceptible to the spying because the producers of free open-source software first not American law, because they so need to keep any ‘backdoors’. But especially,. because most by default (openSSH) Linux distributions through the implementation of secure shell, which encrypts traffic between like-minded computers consistently – to the annoyance of any ‘Schnuffels’ each origin. With additional tools (E.g. dmcrypt) you can transform even the hard drives in a seemingly unreadable garbage. Bad times for hackers… It is an open secret that alternative providers are slowly but surely on the rise, such as e.g.
Duckduckgo search engine. Such search engines allow – other than Google – an anonymous search in the net: the traffic is ‘routed’ by a variety of anonymous relay. So more the interests of searchers go to no conclusions, particularly, because this search engine stores IP addresses and uses hardly any ‘cookies’ – so ‘ Tracker’ – let the requests: surf without identity card so to speak. However many users – even when alternatives such as ixQuick – often complain that then the quality of the results, what may be but also to the necessarily missing ‘personalization’ of the search. A – but worse – alternative in terms of data security would finally be several times a day to clean the browser cache and all cookies as consistently as mercilessly from the hard drive. Also apps and Add-Ons such as ‘ghostery’ and ‘noscript’ can be helpful, because that causes that all Tracker and all advertising first have to ask permission, before they gain access to a computer. A pleasant side effect – also in terms of energy efficiency and Green IT: These pages develop faster without Java-script, because they cause less traffic. It is totally problematic then ‘Social networks’, so where the user himself put their data online, after they previously voluntarily gave up their name and their email address. To ‘Facebook’, ‘Twitter’, ‘Xing’, etc. the alternative would be a waiver simply… but who wants that already?
