But the internet's not doing this because it's bad. It's because all the people who architect the websites and social channels you frequent think they're being helpful. If they learn everything about you before you talk to them, they can better serve your needs.
But we know here at RESCQU NET, that your number one priority as a questioning, closeted, stealth, or under-resourced LGBT+ person is to be safe, secure, anonymous and in control while searching the internet for LGBT+ resources that are vital to you.
So today we've whipped up a handy Infographic that turns our current blog, How to keep your LGBTQ+ identity hidden online, into 5 steps.
Quick Note Though: be sure to check in on the blog because we continually add to it and put a few more tricks up your sleeve (lookin' at you, teens).
1. Create A Separate Email Address
Create a seperate, secure, non-gmail related email to collect resources.
2. Use Private Browsing Modes
To prevent this, find and use your browser's private or "incognito" mode.
3. Remove Yourself From History
...and delete your search history with a program like CCleaner.
4. Find The Right Times AND Places
