You want privacy on the Internet –
Step one 1: physically disconnect your device from the Internet (ie, remove the cord, turn off the wifi).
That’s it folks. If you go on the Internet you leave a trail of information. That trail is made by accessing the Internet on your phone, tablet, laptop and/or desktop. You ‘information’ is now in control by people you may or may not know. It doesn’t matter if you use Apple, Google, Microsoft, Facebook, Amazon … your data and preferences are ‘out there’.
Want privacy: live in a cave (be sure the cave doesn’t have a street address), don’t send/receive any form of mail, don’t vote, don’t use a credit card nor have a bank account, don’t have a job, and most definitely don’t ever do anything on the world-wide-web..
We are tracked, cataloged and monetized. Business and government see us as only one thing – a source of money. You think the Internet is ‘free’? No. All content has a cost – you either pay for it or you provide your personal information (and usually both).
