Google Alerts can be a great tool for monitoring any search term you care about—including your own name and other personal information. This means you can use Google Alerts to regularly check if a thief is using your info anywhere online. We've suggested setting up Google Alerts before to monitor your name, but more for common ego search purposes.

We use Tor to access our website and to publish to our blog, which is blocked inside of our country. -- Iranian human rights activist Tor is a service that helps you to protect your anonymity while using the Internet. Tor is comprised of two parts: software you can download that allows you to use the Internet anonymously, and the volunteer network of computers that makes it possible for that software to work. When you use the Tor software, your IP address remains hidden and it appears that your connection is coming from the IP address of a Tor exit relay , which can be anywhere in the world. There are many reasons you might use Tor, including keeping websites from tracking you and your family members, using websites or services which are blocked in your country (for example, getting around the Great Firewall of China), and maintaining anonymity when communicating about socially sensitive information, such as health issues or whistleblowing.
