Through 2022 and beyond, companies like Meta and Google continue doing what they can to protect people from online threats such as covert influence operations and surveillance-for-hire schemes by rolling out new account security features and making account support more accessible for people globally – something we should all be somewhat thankful for.
They have surpassed an important milestone by taking down more than 200 covert influence operations since 2017 while also paying out millions of dollars in bug bounty payouts – showing just how serious they are about keeping us safe online no matter where we live or what language we speak.
It is no secret that there are malicious actors out there who want to steal your data or manipulate public opinion. By understanding how these threats work, you’ll be better prepared to defend yourself against them. Additionally, by staying informed about online security, you will be able to advise your friends, family members, and colleagues on how they can stay safe online as well.
All in all, it’s clear that we’ve come a long way in protecting people from various threats online — but there’s still much work left to be done. We must continue investing resources into developing innovative solutions that keep our digital lives safe while encouraging collaboration between different stakeholders within the tech industry. With these measures in place, we can make sure everyone is able to enjoy a secure online experience free from interference by malicious actors well into 2022 and beyond.
It affects your safety online. What you can do about it is stay informed and support companies that are working to keep us all safe. Of course, it’s important to note that Meta and Google do this partially for the greater good, and partially to keep regulators at bay, and protect ad revenues. Let’s not get too misty-eyed about them.
