Keeping your Information Safe on Line

How do we know that our sensitive information is safe online?  The truth is we don't.  We rely on companies to tell us when we need to change a password, to admit to a security leak.

What with the recent Heartbleed bug and then the issues with Ebay, I can tell you that I no longer have much faith in companies to protect my sensitive data any longer.

So for the last week I have been trialing the People's ID Bot. The People's ID Bot searches the internet for your sensitive information and let's you know if and when it finds it.

You enter your details in to it and it scans the internet looking for it and will email you if it finds any. It is a really simple concept, but really effective.

It is really simple to use and it has already found something that I would rather not be available to the public. Find out more on The Peoples Identity Project Facebook page.

The bot is free for the first 30 days and then is £3.99 a month and I have 10 free annual subscriptions (worth over £40) to give away.

  1. I haven't, but it's always been a concern!

  2. I do not think I have but it is a real concern these days. The nearest was when my bt email account was hacked twice and emails sent out in my name with dodgy attachments. Not sure if that actually counts as identity fraud.

  3. Yes, we've had our credit card details taken twice now. The first time there was £800 worth of purchases made, second time the card company stopped the card in time. We did get the purchases taken off but it was a long process. We believe details were taken from a tampered chip and pin machine. Very stressful.

  4. nope, but always worried about it

  5. Thankfully I haven't, I hope I never do!

Bissell Vac and Steam Machine Review and Giveaway

I have hard floors downstairs which I love.  They are much more practical than carpet with 2 mucky boys and a dog. Over the past 8 years I have tried all sorts of ways to keep them clean and I think I have finally found the product that does that for me. It is the  Bissell Vac and Steam Machine .  This amazing suel action machine vacuums and steam cleans either independently or at the same time.  It means that I have done away with my vacuum and steam cleaner downstairs (which I gave to my brother in law). What I like: You can either vacuum or steam clean or do both It is lightweight and easy to manoeuvre The handle is adjustable great for a home with people of different heights and for getting the kids involved. You need no chemicals The pads are washable and reusable It comes with a two year guarantee It warms up fast (within 30 seconds) so no long wait to start cleaning It costs under £100 It is space saving.  No need for a separate vacuum, steam cleaner or mop. 

Tissue paper poppy badges

Remembrance Sunday will soon be upon us and my boys take part in the annual church service and march as Beavers. This year MadDad will also be marching in his capacity as Manager of the U7's football team.  We are great believers in remembering what people have done for us and the boys have been busy making tissue paper poppies at Beavers.

Don't feel pressured in to spending at Christmas and a giveaway

According to a recent survey by  Whyte & Mackay    46.2% of people confess to feeling pressured into spending £100-£200 more than they can afford.    I have to admit that this really shocked me, but them with the rising cost of things and also the unrealistic expectations of people it is often very hard to keep a lid on spending. Other irritations were: ·          Christmas dinner preparations (25%) . The most common complaint is when mum-in-laws unfavourably compare the way dinner is served to the ‘proper way’ (i.e. her way). ·          Cruel present choices (24%). The majority felt that parent-in-laws purposefully bought presents for them that they wouldn’t like, from terrible Christmas jumpers to regifting items already in their cupboards. ·          Fighting over board games (15%). The most frenetic choice is the team game of charades with 34% of those who have fought with their parent-in-laws coming to blows. Monopoly is the board game that seems to cause the least amoun
