Private Activity

Keep your online activity private.

Here are some key steps you can take to keep your online activity private:

  1. Use a VPN (Virtual Private Network):
    • A VPN encrypts your internet traffic and hides your IP address, making it much harder for others to track your online activities.
    • Reputable VPN providers like NordVPN, ExpressVPN, and Proton VPN offer strong encryption and no-logs policies.

      2. Use private browsing modes:

    • Use incognito/private mode in your browser to prevent saving your browsing history, cookies, and site data locally.
    • However, keep in mind this doesn’t hide your activity from your ISP or websites you visit.

      3. Use privacy-focused browsers and search engines:

    • Browsers like Brave and Tor offer enhanced privacy protections.
    • Search engines like DuckDuckGo don’t track your searches or build a profile on you.

      4. Adjust privacy settings:

    • Review and tighten privacy settings on your devices, browsers, and online accounts.
    • Limit data collection and sharing where possible.

      5. Be cautious about what you share online:

    • Avoid oversharing personal information on social media and other platforms.
    • Be mindful of metadata in photos and files you share.

      6. Use encrypted messaging apps:

    • Apps like Signal offer end-to-end encryption for messages and calls.

      7. Regularly clear browsing data:

    • Clear your browsing history, cookies, and cached data periodically.

      8. Use strong, unique passwords and two-factor authentication:

    • This helps prevent unauthorized access to your accounts.

      9. Be wary of public Wi-Fi:

    • Avoid accessing sensitive information on public networks, or use a VPN.      

      10. Keep software updated:

    • Regular updates often include security patches that protect your privacy.

Remember, while these steps can significantly enhance your online privacy, no method is 100% foolproof. It’s important to stay informed about privacy best practices and be mindful of your digital footprint.
