Digital security is about finding the right balance between risk and convenience, so prepare to be inconvenienced. It’s necessary. Democrats are trying to force through some heinous crap, with zero bi-partisan support. MLK Jr once said that an unjust law is no law at all. So with that in mind, here’s how to cover your tracks.
Start with a threat assessment. Are you worried about creepy government agencies… or getting doxxed by lefty loser? What’s the ‘surface area’ for attack? Are you browsing websites, emailing, posting in forums, using social media? Are you on a computer or smartphone? How do you connect to the internet? Do you have a doorbell camera or smart TV? Does your car have tech?
It’s a lot to think about, but the conclusion is easy. You shouldn’t trust any of it. Here’s more detail on that: https://www.stationx.net/zero-trust-model/. It’s also important to realize this won’t get fixed overnight. So just pick one area and get started.
