in privacy •  6 months ago


The way it reveals to whole world Facebook relation with Cambridge Analytica, most of us started using the Internet anonymously to provide very less access of personal data to companies like Facebook and Google. It is well-known fact that companies like Google and Facebook treat their user like a Product.We all know that how companies like Google and Facebook do the business with user personal data to sell those data to their advertiser. Showing ads with respect to user search activity over the Internet is OK but it shows that Facebook monitors the personal chat conversation of WhatsApp and shows relevant ads on user Facebook feed..

There are plenty of tools available online that that will help you to use Internet anonymously-:

Start using the Internet with VPN

VPN is a virtual private network that encrypts your communication over the Internet, VPN is also helpful to open any website which is blocked in your country.The concept behind VPN is very simple to let me explain you with an example suppose you want to deliver the very confidential message then, of course, you will choose very trusted courier service. When you send a message using VPN it delivers to the receiver and whole process is the encrypted best example is signal message app which works on Tor network. your message delivery to whom you are chatting in an encrypted format, nobody can see it until and unless have the encrypted key to unlock the message.

Let’s consider another side if you are not sending a confidential message through secure courier, then your message goes to one post office to other and everyone gets knows whom you are sending the message and what you are sending. the best example is WhatsApp when we communicate over WhatsApp, Facebook read our conversation and shows the similar ad on user facebook timeline.

Use DuckDuckGo search engine Over Google

Google accept that they show relevant ads to their user based on their search activity . you can go the Google’s my account activity page and see your activity monitor by Google. Google provide control over the activity so that you can stop showing some of your activity. If you want to search anonymously you can start using DuckDuckGo search engine to hide yourself from Google.

Switch from WhatsApp to signal messaging app

Most of us know that WhatsApp is own by Facebook, the way Facebook using user personal info to make the profit, it is got open to the whole world after their connection with Cambridge Analytica, Facebook observes our personal communication on WhatsApp and shows the similar ads Facebook Timeline.. You can hide from Facebook’s to see your personal conversation by quitting WhatsApp and start using Signal Private Messenger. Signal works in VPN bases tor which encrypts your message end to end.

Use Brave Browser Instead of Google Chrome

Brave Browser is a very Awesome browser, I Believe in future it will be the replacement of Google Chrome, it has very similar design like Google Chrome..One thing about Brave is impressed me a lot, it is a First Browser Have very powerful Adblocking and tracking Feature in build.. Brave is also very conscious about the publisher who creates good content over the internet and victim of Adblocker, does not get anything for their handwork.

Brave reward Brave browser user with BAT Tokes a Cryptocurrency like Bitcoin, Instead of Seeing those nonpaying ads on good content, a Brave user can reward their favourite publisher with brave tokens.

Great article, Amar. I want to add 2 things:

  • for a secure email you can use Protonmail (PM), also PM has a free/paid VPN servers across different countries. In my opinion, it's a good starter for people carrying about privacy.

  • about WhatsApp. Actually, WhatsApp has implemented a Signal protocol for communication (source). I think, the main issue about WhatsApp is not about open chat messages, but about metadata owned by Facebook. Using only metadata you can identify and track people very efficiently. But, I totally agree with you that Signal is the best option.
