If you’ve spent the past week watching the popular TV show Black Mirror, you might feel somehow excited about technology. Except for your existential anxiety about cyberspace, you would be much concerned about your privacy on the Internet.

Fortunately, the company called Supremo has invented a simple tool , with which you could know how much of the stuff you put on Facebook is open to strangers.

Every time you want to share something on Facebook, you could simply change a range of privacy setting options for that post. However, if you fail to select the options, your personal information could be totally open to everyone, from annoying advertisers to criminals.

Start by heading over to the website here and allowing it to access Facebook. It seems a little ironic allowing the tool to get your personal information, however, they did claim that information they had collected would be completely removed from their records but there were more malicious uses of the personal information potentially.

The tool would raise some creepy questions to you, for example, “How was your visit to the Natural History Museum in London 46 days ago?” It would also present a random photograph of yourself and other personal information, such as the school you went to, your workplace, your partner’s name, your family members, your email address, and the events you’ve attended. It is very creepy indeed if your personal information is completely accessible to strangers .

As Supremo explained, it was quite simple! It is necessary for them to be very careful about how they choose to spare users’ information online and who with. After user close this window all of the information collected by the company would be entirely removed from our records.

A series of “cheat sheets” and guidelines created by Supremo could help users deal some issues such as on what and when to share online. There’s the obvious things you should not share on line, like  your credit card details. However, there are also something you might not necessarily have thought about, such as being too explicit that you’re away on holiday, it would tell thieves your house is probably empty at that moment.

The moral of the story, Supremo argues, is to remain cautious.
