It doesn’t matter who you are, you are at risk to be observed and followed by the government. This can happen with your physical movements with the GPS on your smart phone. It can happen as you browse the internet on your laptop and your web activity is casually watched as your IP address is monitored. There are many ways that the government can keep its eye on you and your activities. If you don’t want the government to know what you are up to at any moment of the day, there are steps that you can take to lessen the chance that you will be monitored.
When you are browsing on the internet, use a program that allows for your to keep your identity and IP address secret from prying government eyes. These systems are not difficult to use and can be downloaded onto a computer and used like any other application to keep the government off your back. This should be done with all online chats as well, if you are using applications like Facetime or Skype then your conversations could be monitored. Using the same type of program that keeps your identity a secret it would be much more difficult for the government to locate your conversations and whereabouts.
One great old school way to avoid the government finding your location is to stop carrying your cell phone with your everywhere. Most people keep their phone in their pocket, bag or somewhere else attached to their body, all day long. This convenience is the simplest way that you can be tracked. Even if you don’t allow for the use of GPS it is still conceivable that the cell signal can be followed and located. If this is true then the government is going to know just where you are. Do not carry a cell phone and the odds of moving undetected by officials of any kind will be significantly diminished.
Another way to protect yourself is to use a phone app to allow you to make phone calls that are encrypted. Tapping into a cell phone conversation and knowing not only where you are but who you are talking to and the private details of that conversation. Redphone is an application that you can download which will allow you to do just that. It doesn’t take a lot of technological knowhow to use and it will protect all of your phone calls from being intercepted and listened to. Your private information should be important enough to keep protected by using an a simple phone application.
