Having a significant online presence can result in mayhem if haters get ahold of personal information. No one knows this better than Sally Kohn with the Daily Beast who wrote the article, “I Got Doxxed So You don’t Have To,” after her information was leaked. Kohn wanted everyone to know what they should do to prevent the same thing from happening, or what to do if it does happen to them.
In her interview with Status Labs president and co-founder, Darius Fisher, Kohn goes over some things to do to prevent a personal information leak. Fisher explained the first thing to do is remove information from all databases such as Spokeo and PeopleSmart, which sell personal information to anyone. Also registering any website domain names privately will help. Fisher is adamant about people knowing what information is on the web about them. Googling yourself will help you figure out what information is topping the web. Since people rarely navigate away from the first page of Google search results, anything on that page can be detrimental. Checking social media privacy settings is also important.
