Increase The Cost To Those Spying On You With These Five Free Tips

by Lohengrin on June 11, 2013

Reading time: 4 – 6 minutes

They copied and stored all your emails, phone calls and texts? You had no idea.

They jacked your device’s memory and bandwidth to report back with your personal information without a single thought to how you would feel? Insensitive pricks.

They violated your conversations with your wife or girlfriend and then surreptitiously used your own electronic devices to take naked pictures of them. Probably failed to even use a rubber.

Now they front-run you in the stock market because they know earnings in advance because of your credit card purchases. Bastards!


Information is power. The ability to breach someone’s secrets is another power. The ability to breach someone’s secrets without their knowledge is a greater power still.

As the patriot-hero Edward Snowden’s massive leak has shown is that the United Stasi of America is doing what we have long warned people against: collecting every email, text message, phone call, Internet visit, credit card purchase, Facebook post, cell phone location and so much more along with organizing these into dossiers which are permanently databased, archived and searchable forever.


First, be aware you are being spied on and cognizant of some ways you leak personal information on the Internet and how to clean it up.

Second, you should already be using a VPN and Bitcoin so employ these principles and tactics to shift purchasing power to merchants that accept Bitcoin. Do not let firms like Stratfor compromise your personal information and render you increasingly vulnerable to identity theft.

Third, opt-out of unsolicited credit card offers. Get off their databases and away from these tracking devices. The borrower is servant to the lender, you are chained and naked with loan privacy disclosures, so avoid debt like you would avoid the plague.

Fourth, sign-up for the free How To Vanish email list and get the Free Privacy Guide. It has some extremely helpful and free tips for you to follow. Plus, you will get more tips on a regular basis.

Remember, spying costs money. Sure, they can print money out of thin air but eventually that privilege will come to an end. And with Bitcoin around that is likely to be sooner than before. Remember, using USD, EUR, Bitcoin, etc. is a political choice so opt for political privacy.

But even more than costing money it costs human resources to make any sense out of all the data. And the more human resources you can tie up following worthless and ineffectual trails the better. The more people who do this the higher the cost of spying exponentially rises while the return on investment, actionable or useful intelligence, gets lower and lower.

But why just stop with you taking control of your privacy?

Fifth, understand the force multiplier effect of encryption and share this post with your friends. Spark a discussion and show each other privacy protecting techniques. Plus, it is fun introducing James Bond techniques into your life. Delude yourself and pretend that you actually matter enough to someone else to be spied on.


As Mr. Snowden’s efforts have shown; the State is working to obliterate your privacy. They want you naked in a petri dish. You must pro-actively work to protect your privacy. You must actually do something.

But you are not alone. How To Vanish was created to help you by providing you with tools, tips, strategies and techniques to take control of your privacy and an easy way to share those with your friends. So get started having some fun!

Do you have any info or ideas about when the police break into your car and plant GPS tracking devices in them and stalk you every where you go?

You guys are tracing links in your emails – yet you advocate for privacy?

You are on the biggest spying data gathering hog in the world (facebook) and encourage people to “like” you there.

I don’t believe you advocate privacy at all. If you did, you wouldn’t trace email links, you would DIScourage people from using Facebook and Google, etc.

You can’t have it both ways.

Annie, I appreciate your concern. Our goal at HowToVansih is to give individuals the knowledge and tools they need to custom tailor the level of privacy they want for their own lives. We want people to understand where there may be risks, know what those risks are, and have access to tools to minimize the risks to suit their own taste. There is no one size fits all solution. Some people will choose to be digital hermits and avoid all social networking, electronic devices and communication with friends to reduce their privacy risk to near zero. Others will follow the Kardashian approach and sacrifice almost all privacy in hopes of other gain. Most people will fall somewhere in between.

For those who have chosen to avoid engaging with Facebook, Google, AT&T, the United States, and other privacy invading entities, we certainly encourage them to continue their boycott. For others who choose to engage with those platforms, we encourage them to do so wisely and take advantage of the benefits that they can offer. We aim to be a resource to anyone who is as interested in these topics as we are.
