Online privacy is an oxymoron. For example, mobile phones have an advertiser ID to keep you anonymous. Are you surprised that it isn’t? me neither. Tap or click here for instructions on displaying and deleting advertiser IDs..
It’s not necessarily an advertiser or a Big Tech spy. A stranger or someone you know may be poking your account. Tap or click the quick check you need to keep your Facebook, Google and Netflix accounts secure..
No privacy is given. Here are five ways you can take as much as you can back.
1. The kind of cookie that everyone hates most

The advantage is that cookies store images and files and you don’t have to log in every time you visit the site. However, these cookies contain many details. Fortunately, you can manually delete cookies in a few steps.

WARNING: Internet service providers will continue to be able to see your activity as well as schools and employers that provide internet access or computers.
Press to make it unrecognizable in Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge Ctrl + Shift + N (Also Command + shift + N For Mac). You should always see Incognito if you tap or click and click 3 times..
To further ensure your privacy, launch a VPN. A virtual private network (VPN) is a layer of protection between your device and the Internet. It hides your IP address and your location. It also encrypts data after leaving the device and navigating to the website you are visiting.
Don’t even think about using a free VPN. At best, it lacks the necessary privacy features and slows you down. In the worst case, it hides malware and tracks information.My choice is ExpressVPNThe VPN I used before they sponsored my national radio show.
2. Your email is a wealth of information
Think about everything in your inbox. For malicious people, these digital messages can be very damaging.
Encryption is a way to protect your email from hackers, criminals, and prying eyes. This is the process by which email messages are scrambled, so if a hacker manages to intercept them, they will only see awkward things.
Well-known email services such as Gmail and Yahoo do not offer end-to-end encryption. Encryption is difficult to implement and usually requires the participation of all correspondents.The process is not end-to-end your Email uses encryption, my it’s not. At some point, the message becomes vulnerable.
If email encryption is essential, you should switch to secure services such as StartMail, ProtonMail, Mailfence, Tutanota, and Hushmail.
Do you use Gmail? You can send confidential emails. Emails sent in sensitive mode cannot be forwarded. You can also choose whether to require the recipient to read using a passcode. Tap or click here to scroll to number 3 and try for yourself...
3. Your app is watching where you go
Your phone knows exactly where you were over the past few days, weeks, and even months. If it’s been a while since you checked your phone’s location settings, do it now.
Check the following hidden location settings on your iPhone.
click settingafter that privacy..
select Location-based servicesThen scroll down System service..
Choose Important place Look at the record of what you did and switch it off.
Here’s how to adjust your location settings on Android:
Open settingThen scroll down and tap position..

For each app, tap the app and select your preferred settings: Always allow, allow only while using the app, check every time, or disallow. You can also decide whether the app will display the exact location or the approximate location.
4. Your TV is watching you right away
I’m sorry to break it for you. Your streaming service is also tracking your activity. That makes sense. Netflix, Hulu, and everyone else wants to know what shows you like, so you can recommend content that you enjoy and pay for.
However, monitoring is not for your benefit. Streaming services collect viewing history and ads that you have viewed or skipped. Then share this data with your advertisers.
If you have a smart TV, there are also important settings to check there. Tap or click to stop spying on Samsung, LG, Amazon Fire TV, or Roku TV..
5. Stop sharing everything you buy and browse
Google always seems to know what you want, it’s not in your head. Google keeps track of all searches, clicks, messages, and requests. From time to time, clear your search history and activity. Method is as follows.
Move to myaccount.google.com Alternatively, go to google.com and click the round icon in the upper right corner with the image or initials.Then click Manage your Google account..
click Data privacy It’s in the menu on the left.
[ウェブとアプリのアクティビティ],[ロケーション履歴],[YouTube履歴]A check mark will appear next to. Click each to adjust the settings.Switch them off Stop further tracking if necessary.
You can also set automatic deletion on these pages for future activity. It is highly recommended to enable this. You can choose from 3 months, 18 months, or 36 months.
Don’t stop there. Tap or click to see other Google privacy settings that you can change now..
