Mobile Privacy Tools
- Start with one tool a week – and substitute a privacy tool for a data collecting tool eg Stop using Google search and use Startpage.com or Duckduckgo.com. NEVER use Google!! EVER.
- Then in week 2, install HTTPS Everywhere, or install the Ghostery browser addon.
- These simple changes, will block door after door of those who collect your data and resell it to governments, medical insurers or the taxman.
- Soon, privacy will become second nature. You’ll have all the tools installed, and then you can venture onto to high powered VPN’s using OpenVPN or running TAILS from a CD for extra security. By Easter, you’ll be a privacy tools guru. It’s such fun and much easier than you’d think.
