Internet hazards – Privacy and intrusion
- An e-mail address is intrusive when it allows tracking you everywhere on the Internet. This is the case for e-mail providers who also control the following services:
- a search engine
- a web browser
- a social network
- an advertising network
- You can realize that you are tracked by an intrusive e-mail address when your identity is displayed at the top of the page in other services, such as for instance a simple Internet search.
- If you use an intrusive e-mail address, your e-mail provider knows all your actions on the Internet and can use this information indefinitely: list of all your present and past contacts, content of all your sent and received e-mails, all your Internet searches, history of most of the visited websites...
- Your e-mail provider can quickly build up a substantial data base about you.
- Day after day, your use of Internet brings additional data to this data base, whose extent it is difficult to know.
