The whirlwind of social media, online dating, and mobile apps can make life a dream--or a nightmare. For every trustworthy website, there are countless jerks, bullies, and scam artists who want to harvest your personal information for their own purposes. But you can fight back, right now.

In the second edition of the best-selling The Smart Girl's Guide to Privacy, award-winning author and investigative journalist Violet Blue shows you how women are targeted online and how to keep yourself safe. This updated edition includes increased emphasis on mobile apps and social media, updated links and other resources for researching data breaches, instructions on how to configure privacy settings, how to get help if you're attacked, and a wealth of useful tips about how to leverage more recent security innovations, such as two-factor authentication.

Violet Blue's practical, user-friendly advice will teach you how to:

    Delete personal content from websites
    Use website and browser privacy controls effectively
    Recover from and prevent identity theft
    Figure out where the law protects you--and where it doesn't
    Set up safe online profiles
    Remove yourself from people-finder websites
    Configure your phone's privacy settings
    Safely navigate dating apps

Even if your privacy has already been compromised, don't panic. It's not too late to take control. The Smart Girl's Guide to Privacy will help you cut through the confusion and start protecting your online life.
