I am excited to announce that The Filipino Australian (TFA) representing emanila websites is a partner in this year’s Privacy Awareness Week (#2017PAW) – the largest campaign in the Asia Pacific that raises awareness on privacy issues and how personal information can be better protected.
The #2017PAW campaign runs from 15 May to 19 May.
Your #privacy is valuable. And we at emanila take it seriously. Very seriously that we have also a specialist website, SPAMWATCHERS.COM, which has been operating for the last 10 years to help in privacy information campaigns.
For example, you can visit these pages to help you understand how we at emanila handle personal information:
Let’s all get involved in the Privacy Awareness Week.
Here are a few quick tips you can use today:
1. Check your social media profiles’ privacy settings and alter them to your preferences
3. Respect other people’s privacy — ask for permission to post images or videos where
they are identifiable.
4. Use passwords with a combination of numbers and letters, and which aren’t easy to guess (a password with your name and birthday or the name of your pet dog would be too easy to crack).
5. Especially for payment pages or for transmitting sensitive information, check for the padlock symbol and ‘https’ at the start of a URL — this indicates that the website is secure.
