You're completely mastered your social networks' privacy settings. Facebook? Check. Twitter? Locked down. Google+? Deleted. (Just kidding! Sort of.) But then Facebook removes a setting and Instagram adds messaging, disrupting the delicate ecosystem of privacy protections you've worked so hard to create. Security firm AVG says they have the cure with PrivacyFix, free software that lets you manage privacy settings across all your social networks from a centralized dashboard.
"Users can't expect to be protected. They're not waiting for a law to protect them. They're turning to a product like ours," Brock says. "We talk about privacy as power over your data — whether it's social, websites, or apps. I think people understand better now that to assert that power, they have to step forward, they have to take action."
