You don’t need to throw out all your digital devices to reclaim some privacy in the digital age. There are small choices you can make about which products you use that go a LONG way to giving you back control over your data and carving out a private space on the internet. I first gave this presentation at Liberty Forum 2022.

00:00 Why Privacy is Important
08:43 Extreme Privacy Resources
09:39 How your data is collected
13:02 Privacy Tools we’ll cover
13:24 Browsers
24:00 Search Engines
29:42 VPNs
35:19 Email
38:02 Private Messaging
40:29 Final Thoughts

NOTE: In my presentation I recommend DuckDuckGo, but I added a note on screen that says a week after I gave this presentation they started to filter content, so I no longer recommend them, and I recommend Brave search engine instead.
