Did you know that even if you surf the Web in “private” or “incognito” modes your activity is still trackable?

The folks at Who is Hosting This made this illuminating infographic, and while they seem to suggest using Google puts your privacy at risk no matter what precautions you take, it’s also pretty difficult to avoid Google.

And are you really going “ditch your smartphone” as a way to protect your privacy? Only criminals would go to this extreme.

That said, there’s plenty to learn from the tips in this infographic. At least you’ll be more aware of what kinds of information companies are tracking and take steps to protect your privacy.









We live in an age where we are all addicted to our Smartphones.  According to The Daily Mail, the average person reaches for their Smartphone at 7.31am in the morning and checks their personal emails and Facebook before they even get out of bed.  They use their phone for three hours and sixteen minutes a day and four in ten users admitted that they would feel completely lost without their device.  It’s no wonder that people are becoming increasingly concerned about the health implications of this increased usage.

Research into this area is still developing but recently there has been an appeal by nearly 200 experts for the UN to provide more protective guidelines as they say the radiation is damaging DNA in our cells.   This came in the same week that lawmakers in the city of Berkeley, California voted for mobile phone retailers to be required to provide customers with a notice informing them of the potential health hazards of carrying their device too close to their bodies.

Moreover, research shows that the effects of this can be even more harmful in youths and teens due to thinner skull bones which allow for greater exposure of mobile phone radiation to the brain.

As the research has been developing Techccessorize.com have sourced SafeSleeve for Smartphone, a Radiation Shielding Mobile Phone Case developed using military grade, radiation shielding technology. The case shields against Electromagnetic radiation emitted by mobile phones, by deflecting and absorbing all types of radiation (RF, ELF and Thermal) emitted by your phone to greatly reduce your exposure while still allowing signal to enter and exit the back of the phone (the shielding material has undergone tests by an independent lab who have confirmed that the radiation absorption rate is reduced by at least 95% when using the shield).

The SafeSleeve for Smartphone  provides peace of mind knowing that you are protected from potentially harmful radiation from your phone and provides an all in one attractive case with other useful features including:

  • RFID Blocking Wallet — Hold up to 4 cards in the built-in slots and leave that bulky wallet at home.
