I realize this email topic is non-financial and more of a public service email, BUT I thought it was important since we ALL deal with issues of privacy and confidentiality with our clients.

At our firm, Main Street Financial Solutions (www.msfsolutions.com), we do our best at all times to protect this important client data and I am sure you do as well.

Below is an article from the Washington Post that discusses how you can protect YOUR data from the likes of Facebook, Google, Amazon, Microsoft and Apple.  I thought it was very interesting and am passing it along.  It is quite scary how much information can be learned about you and your family on these sites, not just by the company (like Facebook), but potentially outside parties that are not well intentioned.
