On-site cyber security protection may be taken care of in your business – but what about your mobile devices?

Protecting your online privacy and personal data is getting more complicated each day but staying on top of it is essential for businesses big and small.

This month’s ‘App from the Expert’ is Jumbo, a privacy and security assistant for your mobile devices to ensure you and your day-to-day usage remains out of harm’s way.

The app, which is available on the Apple app and Google Play store, gives you back control over your data by scanning the apps and services you use, and provides actionable recommendations to increase your online privacy and security.

Jumbo offers four main categories of protection:

  1. Security (dark web, two-factor authentication)
  2. Digital footprint (old tweets or Facebook posts; search history)
  3. Tracking (ad tracking, social media online status)
  4. Reputation and data leaks (profile info, Facebook tagging and post visibility)

With Jumbo, you can:

INCREASE SECURITY:

◆ Increase the security of your Google, Facebook, and other internet and social media accounts.

◆ Monitor the dark web for data breaches.

◆ Reduce the number of unwanted calls.

REDUCE YOUR DIGITAL FOOTPRINT:

◆ Delete old Tweets from Twitter.

◆ Remove old Facebook posts.

◆ Delete voice recordings from Alexa smart devices.

LIMIT TRACKING:

◆ Turn off Facebook’s facial recognition feature.

◆ Limit Google’s use of your search history.

◆ Protect your data from being used by Google and Facebook for ads and advertisers.

◆ Limit ads that follow you around.

◆ Avoid third parties from collecting and selling your data without your consent.

◆ Limit location tracking by Google and Facebook.

PREVENT DATA LEAKS

◆ Restrict what info your Facebook profile shows to the public.

◆ Restrict who can tag you on Facebook and review tags on posts before they show up on your timeline.

◆ Browse in private mode on LinkedIn.

Currently Jumbo scans Facebook, Google, Twitter, Amazon and the dark web. In the future the app plans to expand its usage onto Instagram, LinkedIn, and many more.
