We are surrounded and use tons of apps and website, leaving a digital footprint behind. What apps do you use to keep your digital footprint as minimal as possible?
I recently discovered an app called Jumbo privacy which has some interesting features.
I use Safari as my main browser, which prevents cross-site tracking by default and generally makes it harder to fingerprint individual users (even to annoying degrees, since Safari hides personally installed typefaces from sites so they can't identify you based on the fonts you've installed—but that also means you can't use custom fonts in web apps in Safari).
I then generate new passwords with 1Password and use it to sync and fill in account data, while keeping 2fa codes in Authy. And I only allow apps to access location when I know I want them to use location data (e.g. Maps and transit apps), and then only give them access to location while the app is running.
I use Bitwarden as my password manager, and Authy for 2FA.
For data protection, I use Brave Browser’s built-in adblocker that perform well for ads and cookies. Even though adblocking is one of my dilemma, because I work for company that uses ads for the income too, I enable ads for some website that I want to support indirectly.
I also use less Google product if I can. I use OpenStreetMap, Invidio.us (eventhough I subscribed to Youtube Premium), and Runnaroo or DuckDuckGo. I disabled Google’s profiling in their Privacy Settings, I’m not sure whether they still collect my data or not, at least it is a peace of mind after disabling that.
