How the Internet Works

Internet browsing and online identity explained

When you access a website using any device that connects to the internet, your ISP (Internet Server Provider) sends a request through the internet in order to receive the content we asked for. As this information is not completely secure, your ISP can share your information and worse, it can also be intercepted by potential hackers.

Every device that browses the internet has an IP Address. When you visit a website you're sending and requesting lots of information to that website's server.

Your personal information is being sent to this server. Cookies are one way of capturing this and information like your name, home address, email, telephone number or even bank details can be sent.

This information can be stored by your ISP (internet service provider), the websites you visit and even worse, stolen by a potential hacker.
