Chrome: Privacy is a precious commodity now that we know companies track us on the web. If you’d like more security, SecureGmail is a Chrome extension that makes it easy to encrypt your Gmail messages with a password only your recipient should know.
Android/iOS: MyPermissions, the service that shows you which apps are connected to online accounts such as Facebook, Google and Dropbox, has updated its mobile apps for permissions-cleaning on the go. Now you’ll get notifications as soon as new apps connect to your accounts.
If you’ve read our features on how to protect your privacy and stop everyone from tracking you on the web, you’ve heard us mention Ghostery.
