I feel that having an anti-virus is very important. However, I don’t like to share too much information. The more information we share online, the more likelihood that someone may try to take advantage of that.
For example, for years I joined every loyalty/points club that was out there, and allowed large home improvement, grocery and department stores to email me receipts or accumulate information about my purchases. I’m sure none of these companies had bad intentions, but eventually we heard news releases from several retailers that they had been hacked and SORRY some of my information may have been compromised. My favourite grocery/points company sent me many emails about their data breach, but initially the emails implied that the breach was due to people using weak passwords. Was it my fault that they had widespread data breaches because of my one password?
