Publisher's Summary

Kevin Mitnick, the world's most famous hacker, teaches you easy cloaking and countermeasures for citizens and consumers in the age of Big Brother and Big Data.

Like it or not, your every move is being watched and analyzed. Consumers' identities are being stolen, and a person's every step is being tracked and stored. What once might have been dismissed as paranoia is now a hard truth, and privacy is a luxury few can afford or understand.

In this explosive yet practical book, Kevin Mitnick illustrates what is happening without your knowledge - and he teaches you "the art of invisibility". Mitnick is the world's most famous - and formerly the most wanted - computer hacker. He has hacked in to some of the country's most powerful and seemingly impenetrable agencies and companies, and at one point he was on a three-year run from the FBI. Now, though, Mitnick is reformed and is widely regarded as the expert on the subject of computer security. He knows exactly how vulnerabilities can be exploited and just what to do to prevent that from happening.

In The Art of Invisibility Mitnick provides both online and real-life tactics and inexpensive methods to protect you and your family, in easy step-by-step instructions. He even talks about more advanced "elite" techniques, which, if used properly, can maximize your privacy. Invisibility isn't just for superheroes - privacy is a power you deserve and need in this modern age.

Great book, even better narration.

I'm a cybersec student and found while this confirmed most of what I knew the anecdotes to be pretty entertaining. I would recommend it to all my friends and family. Ray Porter is now my favourite narrator of all the audio books I've ever listened to, very compelling listening.

A novel I think everyone should read

In this day and age I think people too easily overlook online personal security. This book talks about how to stay safe online by keeping your data from prying eyes. With the recent NSA/Snowden and Facebook scandals, no one can be one-hundred percent sure where their data is going, which is why it's very important to lock as much of it down as you can. I have read a number of other books written by Kevin Mitnick and I can say; all of them have had compelling information. They're a real eye opener into today's surveillance state society. Everyone can listen, from complete technology novices to the more advanced and there's something to be had either way. I can definitely recommend The Art of Invisibility with a big thumbs-up!

Privacy is dying, your fingerprints are everywhere

Wow! Mitnick has presented a wealth of information on how to protect your privacy, as best you can, living in this already digital world where, if everything is not connected yet, it soon will be. George Orwell's 1984 appears to have been a warning to the working public and used as a play book for the IT kings (the real rulers of the world).
You CAN employ some or all of the recommendations in this book, but its going to cost you for burner phones, tablets and a type of personal deduxation and vigilance that most people don't/ won't have. One slip in your vigilance- all your data will be found and linked.
Also, using some items, web apps requires a trust that those gathering the data don't already own the site and have set it up as a proxy net to catch those less "trusting".
Currently if you live in planet Earth you are being tracked....for what future purpose, who knows, but laws can always be retroactive so there's no way to go alone to get along.
Fantastic book, wish I knew about it 15 years ago.

Interesting read - helpful

While some points are clear and obvious, I did learn something new. Very good read if you’re looking to protect your privacy online. While I don’t need to go to the extremes they outline, it helps my peace of mind knowing I’m doing what I can.
