If you've been following the news, then you know that the National Security Agency has been caught spying on your emails and phone calls.
Surprised? Me neither.
It's been standard practice for years and it's a big reason why I encourage my readers to 'take your identity off the grid' in order to keep "big brother's" dirty rotten noses out of your personal business
How do you do that?
First off you can follow these steps from my friend Chris Peterson, who is a privacy expert:
Use email encryption and anonymizers for emails you don't want others to see.
Use a disposable phone for sensitive communication that you do not want others to hear.
Chris has written a book that I think every American should have (especially now) that goes into detail about these methods and a lot more.
His methods are surprisingly simple and easy-to-implement for anyone.
