Firefox add-on called TrackMeNot does just that. On installing, it will show up in your Yahoo and MSN are all collecting data from users. All of this search engines are monitoring and storing your searches along with other such data as your behavior while online. Keep in mind that if third parties are using other means to identify you, such as through IP addresses and information from your ISP, TrackMeNot will be of little use. However, in terms of identifying you through searches alone, TrackMeNot potentially makes this a lot more difficult for third parties.

NTFS has several key features. It supports compression of individual files and folders which can be read and written to while they are compressed. It’s a recoverable file system, meaning it has the ability to undo or redo operations. It also supports Macintosh files. Run “gpg” once, and it will create its storage location for keys, which it refers to as your “key ring”. In encryption, the first approach that typically comes to mind is password or phrase encryption.

The intended recipient needs to generate a public/private key pair. In the Windows Command Prompt, enter gpg –genkey. First select which kind of key you want, as well as the keysize (you can also accept the default which is 2048 bits).

This creates “mykey.pub”, a text file that contains your public key. You can now mail this to the person who’s going to encrypt data to be sent to you, or post it publicly if you like. In order to encrypt data, the sender will have to install GPG as above. They don’t need to create their own public/private key pair in order to encrypt your data. All they need is the public key you created above, and made available to them somehow.
