Take advantage of all that the online world has to offer, without giving up your online data. Here is an updated list of the best online privacy tools that we know of in 2022.
The internet is an amazing resource. It allows us to research obscure topics, connect with distant loved ones, and learn how to fix anything from a video. The internet has become so completely interwoven into how we live, work, and play that it’s hard to believe it only launched for the public in 1991!
Up until recently, we have been focused on all the amazing streamlining and productivity that the internet has offered us. It didn’t occur to most people to ask whether there were trade-offs involved… and now we are starting to wonder: Is my online activity being tracked, stored and used? Where do I look for answers?
Thankfully there are individuals and organizations that have been asking these questions for a long time. Long enough to come up with solutions that make our online data a lot more secure.
Below is a list of some of the best tools for online privacy that we have found to date.
