Data Privacy Day 2021

A year when privacy matters.

Millions of people around the world remain unaware of and uninformed about how personal information is collected and shared without our permission.

Data Privacy Day aims to educate and empower individuals and companies to take action to improve this. 


Initiated in 2007 to commemorate the creation of the first international data-privacy treaty, the day is recognized across US, Canada, the EU, Israel, and 47 other countries as a time to raise awareness and promote privacy and data-protection best practices.

And 2021 is a year where privacy is at the center of many changes affecting our lives.  

  • The Covid-19 virus has rapidly increased universal surveillance of how we work, travel, go to school, and shop; everywhere new data-gathering technologies are being deployed in the name of public health, and we are only beginning to grasp the range of ways they put personal privacy at risk.

At Abine, we take privacy issues seriously. We want to take advantage of Data Privacy Day and help people take better control of their personal information to live more secure lives.

Here are the best practices we’d recommend to ensure your own data privacy:

How Does Facebook Collect Information?

1. Clean up your social media.

Don’t share personal details directly at places like LinkedIn or Twitter – a link to a CV means your information won’t be scraped by bots that are constantly scanning these platforms.

2. Get rid of unnecessary apps on your phone, examine permissions apps have.

Many apps are just tools for 3rd parties to collect personal info that they can sell. If it’s not essential, then get it off your device.

3. Start paying online with Masked Cards, gift card accounts, or other proxy-payment services.

Credit cards hand over tons of data about you with every transaction, and are easily tracked.

4. Use a password manager that creates unique, strong passwords for every account.

Credit cards hand over tons of data about you with every transaction, and are easily tracked.

5. Download all your old emails to a local archive, and delete them from 3rd party servers.

Anything you’ve ever written in an email is basically public property after 180 days.  It can be searched without a warrant by the government.
