How To Protect Your Data and Privacy, Avoid Leaks and Breaches featuring IoTeX

This is my original content but a copy of my reply on ​IoTeX Forum​​​

Data and Privacy is an important information that we should protect

That's why keeping safe your personal data is a must

I give you some example and how to prevent it

Dubsmash data breach December 2018

Impact: 162 million users

In December 2018, Dubmash suffered a data breach that exposed 162 million unique email addresses, usernames and DBKDF2 password hashes. In 2019, this data appeared for sales on the dark web and was circulated more broadly. Sales their data to the dark web 😱 it’s too scary (.Source)

So how to prevent it?

Lets Blockchain solve it or IoTeX especially

🍕So allow their customers to store their information and identity using Decentralized Identifiers (IoTeX DIDs).

How special IoTeX DID is?

Yeah DIDs are designed to function without a central registration authority. 

DIDs are registered in blockchain, 

DIDs should be permanent, persistent, and non-reassignable.

DIDs are made useful through resolution.

And the last reason you should use DID is they can prove ownership, How cool 😎

🍕Use configuration management to ensure cloud services are not exposing data to the Internet.

🍕Prevent phishing

🍕Use password manager that encrypted your data

🍕Install anti malware/virus

But remember to investing carefully your chosen third party service before using it!

Please drop a comment if i'm wrong or you have additional tips

Security is very important and should be treated as such.
