Back in 2019, I started writing a series of posts around the idea of how to maintain privacy on the web (because it was a growing concern at least for me). As I wrote then:
For many of us, we’re well aware of the privacy implications of the software and services many of us use on a day-to-day basis even if we’re not sure just how this information is shared.
Things haven’t slowed down with regard to privacy and though I’m still consistently on the lookout for different services, utilities, applications, and so on, I thought it might be useful to round up everything that I’ve drafted thus far.
So here’s a rundown of material I’ve covered in both 2019 and 2020.
Privacy is Hard, Round Up 1
If you opt to read through this, note that if there was a time be concerned about privacy online, I think now is as good a time as any. It’s better to take notice, take care, and take action at some point rather than not.
Here’s a list of things that I’ve published thus far:
- Privacy is Hard, Let’s Go Shopping! (And why we should go shopping.)
- Web Browsing with Browsers
- Email Services
- Analytics with Fathom
- File Syncing with Sync
- Web Browsing with 1Blocker
- Analytics, Revisited
- Chrome Extensions
If you have some downtime over the next few weeks or if you’re looking for something to do to tighten up your experience on the web without sacrificing your existing tools (or if you want to try out some new tools), the above list offers a series of services, plugins, add-ons, tools, and apps that you can use.
Though I plan to continue running, posts age so sometimes it’s good to have a round-up to make sure things don’t get lost over time. 🙂
