You can never be too careful nowadays on the Internet. A new phenomenon known as “doxxing” is sweeping around the world. “Doxxing” refers to trolls hacking into your accounts and accessing all of your personal information. In the worst case scenario, this could lead to various trolls subjecting you and your loved ones to public shame and even stealing from your bank accounts.
One of the leaders in the crusade against “doxxing” is Darius M. Fisher, the president of Status Labs. Mr. Fisher co-founded Status Labs to help with online reputation management, as well as helping people with PR and digital marketing services. This company is currently one of the most highly regarded reputation management companies in the nation. Status Labs has helped over 1,500 clients in 35 countries around the world. Some of their more famous publications include Forbes, The Daily Beast, Huffington Post, and The New York Times.
Mr. Fisher is a graduate of Vanderbilt University. His first jobs included work as a political consultant and copywriter. He is currently one of the nation’s leading voices on online reputation management, and he frequently holds public seminars to help people protect their personal information.
Recently, Mr. Fisher offered advice everyone can use to prevent “doxxing” from ever being an issue in your lives. One piece of advice he gave is specifically for people who have their own websites. Mr. Fisher stresses that anyone who owns a website should be sure they have registered their domain name privately. You should be sure you own all of the rights to your domain name.
Also, since everyone is on social media nowadays, it is important to ensure that all of your accounts are on private mode. Even if your accounts are private, Mr. Fisher says you should always use common sense before posting anything online. Just remember that everyone in the world can potentially view your Twitter feed or Facebook page, and then act accordingly.
A good habit to get into is to change your passwords frequently for all of your most important online accounts. Mr. Fisher recommends four times a year.
