Hello all, due to the recent police actions against citizens in Australia and in the UK I would like to add this post about how to protect yourselves from governments and big companies tracking you down online.
First of all DO NOT use your real name on social media. Do nt tell anything from yourself.
DO NOT use GOOGLE products as it's harvesting all your data and selling it out to companies and governments, so do not use Google mail, search engine or maps. Same goes to Facebook, Whatsapp, Youtube, Instagram.
Use DuckDuckGo search engine instead. You can set search criteria to a specific country or globally.
There are a few email providers whomare not situated in the 14 eyes countries like Protonmail or Kolabnow.
Use a VPN to hide your IP address at home and on all your devices, a list of providers outside 14 eyes are here:
There are a few VPN providers where you can use double hop or selecting servers from different countries.
Use Brave or Firefox browsers (Firefox Focus on mobile) with WebRTC leak prevention, adblock plus + HTTPS everywhere (you can download these extension in the browsers)
Use ipleak.net to check your connection if safe or has any leaks.
Do NOT register your mobile number with any apps. Use Signal, Telegram or Viber for messaging, don't use Facebook messenger or Whatsapp.
Do NOT give acces to your location to any apps on your mobile only GPS coordinates to weather apps only or maps.
And last but not least use a password manager so you can set 24-32 digit long passwords without forgetting them.

Hope it helps.
