  1. it will only affect you if they know it’s yours.

    Avoid F**ebook. And G**gle. Use or a Searx instance ( as a search engine.

    Use a reputable non-logging VPN, such as ExpressVPN or Always.

  2. “Use a reputable non-logging VPN, such as ExpressVPN or Always.”

    This. I keep reading about people’s data being exposed cause they use crappy free VPNs. It’s not worth it.
