That's a pretty large and open question.

Main thing - don't use the same passwords across different sites. Get a good password manager and generate secure random passwords.

Don't visit dodgy links.

Don't follow links in emails - always go directly to the site yourself.

Don't give out information to strangers or unsolicited calls.

Google for online privacy, have a read and if you have any specific questions then come back and feel free to ask.

PS - don't now start spamming the site as I have assumed a benefit of doubt but your opening post is pretty reminiscent of the sort of things spammers post as a tester...

First USA and then Australia, it's like the Governments of the whole world are after the data generated by its citizens. I have been following publications like Venture Beat, International Times and ReviewsDIR.com for news regarding Online privacy and data retention laws all over the world, and man am I disappointed all the time as governments of the world hitting a new low every time I see update from these publications.

This would appear to be mild spam I reckon.
