In today’s digital age, it’s very easy to be tracked and have that information leaked and sold to the highest bidder. It is a constant battle to secure your privacy, but there are some tools that stand out of the pack more than others. Two of them very specifically are Duck Duck Go and Signal.
The first: Duck Duck Go is a search engine that, unlike Google, they take a conscious effort to not track and store your private data or follow you around with ads. It’s a great way to browse the internet without your internet history being snooped on everywhere you go.
The second: is Signal, this tool is pretty much indispensable and everyone should be using it. It uses open source end-to-end encryption to send text messages and make phone calls on the network. This prevents anyone from listening to your conversations or reading your text messages even if it is intercepted. Encryption is key, and so too is your privacy.
Both of these are desktop websites and mobile phone applications available on Apple iOS and Google Android. You also don’t have to take our word for it. Look them up! From Edward Snowden to some of the world’s brightest minds in security highly recommend them too!
