Hi friends,

Recently I checked website https://haveibeenpwne...m/ and avast.com/hackcheck and entered my Gmail,Yahoo,Hotmail ID, there its showing that my ID, password, phone number, address has been leaked on some website, dark web in the form of plain text. (Details of yatra, zomato, myspace etc has been shared)

Also I saw my userID and Pwd of gaana.com on a telegram group in a leaked password list. I am really worried now, that how this userID and password are leaking ?

Also I checked google setting in chrome where its showing that all the  past 2 year of history of YouTube, Location, Google assistant, search is saved. And what app I am using, time, duration are saved by google. It means nothing is safe on internet ? rolleyes

1) I have some sensitive datas on dropbox, google drive also, including pics, and documents. I have already activated 2F security on google, FB, insta, dropbox. but still want to know how to protect my account & password from future leaks ? How to protect leaking these files from cloud storage ?

2) I am using Jio, airtel sim and local broadband GTPL wifi service, can these ISP read what I am doing on internet ? 🤨

3) How to get anonymous while accessing internet using android apps or chrome browser in windows 10 Laptop ? rolleyes

4) Can chrome extension read my activities ? (i.e IDM, buyhatke, pocket, evernote etc) frowning

5)I am using brave browser based on chrome, there is an option  to use private mode using duckduckgo and TOR, is it reliable or standalone TOR is better ? ( Brave Tor vs standalone TOR browser) neutral_face

6) Is it safe to use google keyboard in android ? neutral_face

7) Is truecaller also selling/leaking my phone data? bcz I am getting random calls from unknown international numbers. angry

8) I have created same password for goibibo, zomato, yatra etc How to create and remember so many passwords for online shopping website. cold_sweat

9) Important question, I dont want google to track my any activities either in cellphone or laptop. Kindly tell me how to prevent future leaks of my userID and password. rolleyes rolleyes

Use duckdduckgo browser in Mobile
No other way – create different passwrds and note them somewhere.

I created a password protected Excel file in my PC to save my Banking login credentials. For other sites I use Google’s Chrome inbuilt password saver. I always use Google Chrome incognito mode for NetBanking session.

In pc dont install unwanted “extentions/addons”.. it have access to track all our history. (Check its permission before installing, like we do in mobile apps)
Also in Mobile don’t install unwanted apps and make settings to disable “internet access” when its not running in foreground.(it will affect notifications, but if you need safety you need to compromise these things)
Also check other apps which are running in background and eating your data and disable internet access for them.
Clear history every alternate days or a week.
Clear cache from settings>storage once in a day.
Don’t allow third party cookies in chrome settings.
Avoid using google keypad and install any keyboard without having any internet permission.
Good Luck plus1

I will suggest u to use paid antivirus for laptop and mobile phone and use temprary common password for all useless activities.
But for your main email banking etc change password every month. Moreover dont share too much on your social media account. And try to make ur pasword more sensitiive like @ 1btwoc3d4€5

I dint think so, google inbuilt password manager is safe, once you will loose google ID then you gonna loose all saved password too.

I’ve already enabled Google 2 factor authentication. Unless I’ve lost access to my phone number I don’t think I’ll loose my Google account.

All it takes is one leak from any site using same password & that is why you should never use same password for critical sites like banks & not-so-critical ones(compared to banks) like amazon/flipkart/gmail followed by even less critical ones like cred/travel sites/forums/reddit etc.

TOR browser is alright for privacy but it won’t protect you against security risks like virus/malware/compromised sites etc. Also even that privacy is only against typical advertisers, you can never be truly anonymous on internet. It all depends on who wants to catch you. Just use a good always updated antivirus along with installing all windows security updates. Always update your browsers as soon as possible when any update is released. Use two factor authentication wherever possible.

Golden Rule – Never ever keep banking passwords in digital mode.
Better keep the passwords in a file (locked place) if staying at home

That is fine but don’t forget to also update all your browsers & use some good ad blocker extensions like ublock origin or ad block plus. Don’t use TOR for any financial activity like your banking sites or bill payments, use it only for browsing normal sites. Using vpn & TOR for financial activities will most likely trigger a system alert by your bank/payment gateway resulting in failure of transaction or temporary ban on internet banking/card.
