Introduction

If you’ve been paying attention, you know that your privacy is under siege on the Internet. Even if you’re not doing anything wrong, hundreds of companies are collecting data about what you do online. That’s why protecting your privacy online is so important—it can be hard to do so. So here are my top tips for protecting yourself without spending any money at all.

Enable Do Not Track

You can enable Do Not Track if you use any major web browsers. The easiest way to do this is by installing the [Do Not Track Plus extension]. Once installed and activated, it adds a button in your browser that allows you to enable Do Not Track (see below) or disable it temporarily for specific sites (see below).

Do Not Track Plus also adds two other buttons to your browser that allow you to permanently enable Do Not Track for all sites and temporarily disable it for specific sites.

The Do Not Track Plus extension is available for Chrome, Firefox, and Safari.

Install a free ad blocker.

A free ad blocker will block ads on your computer and smartphone across all websites (including Facebook, Google, and YouTube), all apps (including games and music streaming services), and all devices (laptops, smartphones, and TVs).

It can also be installed on your router so that every device in your house is protected from ads.

With AdBlock Plus, you can:

– Browse the web without annoying ads and trackers

– See which websites are sending you unwanted content

– Get rid of pop-ups, banners, and pre-roll videos

– Browse faster and save data

– Enjoy a more streamlined browsing experience

– Set rules to block specific ads, like those annoying pop-ups!

Disable JavaScript.

The first step to online privacy is to disable JavaScript. JavaScript is a scripting language that runs in the browser, and advertisers can use it for tracking, ads, and cookies. If you have seen a pop-up appear on your screen just after visiting a website, that’s because of JavaScript. If you’re on Facebook or Twitter and you see an ad for something like cat food even though you don’t own any pets—that’s also because of JavaScript.

To disable JavaScript, follow these instructions:

First, open up Chrome or Firefox (or whatever browser you use).

Click on “Settings” in the top right corner of the screen and then click “Show Advanced Settings.” That will open up another box with more options than before; scroll down until you reach “Privacy & Security,” then click on it once more so that it becomes selected above all others below this menu (this will help keep us focused!). Now go to where it says “Content Settings” under Privacy & Security; make sure “Do Not Track” is checked off here too!

Go to the bottom of this page and click “Show Advanced Settings.” It will open up another box with more options than before; scroll down until you reach “Privacy & Security,” then click on it once more so that it becomes selected above all others below this menu (this will help keep us focused!). Now go to where it says “Content Settings” under Privacy & Security; make sure “Do Not Track” is checked off here too!

Use incognito mode.

Incognito mode is a way to browse the Internet without leaving a record of your activity. When you use incognito mode, Google Chrome won’t save your browsing history or download files to your computer establishing online privacy.

It’s straightforward to enable and use incognito mode:

Open Google Chrome and click on the three-dot menu button in the top right corner of your browser window (or press Ctrl + Shift + I). Next, select “New Incognito Window.” Doing so allows you to open an entirely new tab page in an incognito window that will not be included in your current session or saved for later access by anyone else on your device if it’s shared between multiple people. It also ensures that sites cannot track what pages you’ve visited if someone else uses this same computer after opening their own incognito tabs – because those pages won’t appear anywhere else on either person’s computer!

Incognito mode is a great way to browse the Internet without leaving a record of your activity.

Use search engines with privacy settings (ex: DuckDuckGo).

When you use a search engine, chances are they’re tracking your searches.

DuckDuckGo is a search engine that allows you to find online information without leaving a trace. It doesn’t track or store your IP address, and it doesn’t store your search history. DuckDuckGo also uses cookies sparingly (if ever) and does not use ads in its service. They have become popular among activists concerned about privacy issues, such as political dissenters and whistleblowers who fear persecution from their governments.

DuckDuckGo doesn’t have the same search experience as Google or Bing. It’s not as comprehensive, but it offers a few unique features, such as the ability to search within a specific site, like Wikipedia or Amazon. The search engine also has a fun gimmick where you can draw pictures with their drawing tool and send them off into cyberspace for others to view and enjoy.

Bonus: You can protect your privacy online at no cost.

Don’t feel like a computer expert? No problem! You don’t need to be a geek to take steps to keep your information private, either. There are only four steps you need to follow to protect your privacy online:

Consider using a VPN service that encrypts all of the data traveling between your computer and the Internet—this helps prevent hackers from stealing information such as passwords or credit card numbers by monitoring network traffic on public Wi-Fi networks.

Use Tor for anonymous browsing when accessing websites that require user names and passwords; it’s not foolproof, but it’s an extra layer of protection.

Make sure third-party apps are set up with strict permissions so they can access only the data they need

Conclusion

At no cost, you can protect your privacy online. These tips are easy to implement and help keep your information private and secure.
