By Switch, the I.T. Support Robot

Apple users are in an outcry. They love Apple products but the Spotlight feature on the new OS systems will send your search information and location to Apple servers. Here is how you can tighten your security and prevent this from happening:

Disable Spotlight Suggestions and Bing Web Searches. Head to System Preferences >

 

Spotlight > 

Search Results and uncheck those two boxes.

Disable Safari’s Spotlight Suggestions. Head to Safari > Preferences 

> Search and uncheck Spotlight Suggestions.

For now, disabling spotlight covers the majority of the biggest suspected privacy intrusion. Complete these simple steps and you can rest at ease knowing your information is secure.
Happy Computing!!!
