  • Removing all personally identifiable information (PII) from the Internet (or as much as is possible);
  • Freezing your credit and setting up fraud alerts (note: this is now free thanks to the Equifax data breach!);
  • Being guarded with your personal information when talking to others (i.e., donโ€™t freely give out personal info when you donโ€™t have to);
  • Not using social media or at least being very careful of what information and photos/videos you post online (avoid pictures of your home address, license plate, face, friends and families faces, addresses, license plates, etc.);
  • Minimizing external tracking exposure by using a VPN and the Tor or similar proxy browser; using PGP-encrypted email or digital steganography;
  • Upon re-entering the U.S. after traveling outside the country, emailing or backing up data to Cloud storage and sanitizing smartphones and laptops, so it has no data for law enforcement to inspect (without using digital forensic tools because why make their job easier right?).
