does anyone else constantly have the feeling that everything you are doing on a smart device is being monitored? im kinda used to it tbh.

Anonymous 1620

It's not a "feeling". You should know for a fact that you are being monitored.

Some steps I've taken
>Only use Signal for private messaging people or talking about any opinions on anything
>Deleted FB
>Use a VPN (ProtonVPN is pretty great)
>Use encrypted email (ProtonMail)
>Only use IG via my browser, on a VPN
>Clear browser cookies after each session

Forgot to mention that I avoid Google at all costs and use Startpage as my search engine.

i mean yeah, i guess. but what i meant was there being an actual person seeing my screen as we speak. id say thats actually pretty unlikely. companies and governments are a different thing - you are speaking of those, right?

Ah its so nice to see someone problematicly paranoid like me. However startpage was sold a while back so maybe you might want to reconsider https://reclaimthenet.org/startpage-buyout-ad-tech-company/

I'm not paranoid. I saw that re: startpage. I still use it, granted i do it behind a VPN and also clear all cookies

>>1626
an actual person? That's a little narcissistic of you to assume that one entire person has been assigned to monitor whatever the fuck you do on the internet.

>companies and governments are a different thing - you are speaking of those, right?

yes, I was referring to these.

what is fueling your desire to to be so uptight about your privacy, anon? just feeling like doing so ?
it's futile, like it or not your data is going to be collected by complex techniques out of your control or even understanding no matter what.
beside, for an average internet user, they don't give a fuck beside knowing what pr0duct/ service ads you may be interested in.

It's not really "uptight". I just don't like when I don't have full control over all information about me, or full knowledge of who knows what about me.

>it's futile, like it or not your data is going to be collected by complex techniques out of your control or even understanding no matter what.

This is incorrect. "Complex techniques out of your control" lol yes, the economic powers that be have literal magical powers now that I will never understand.

Beyond that, this is an idiotic thing to say. Why should I make it easy to harvest my data?

>beside, for an average internet user, they don't give a fuck beside knowing what pr0duct/ service ads you may be interested in.

I don't care.

I'm not telling anyone that they should be concerned about this, or even go to the (very uninvasive) measure that I have taken to combat this problem. If you're okay with whoring your information out for mere convenience, be my guest.
