I signed out of bookface at the beginning of the election and haven't signed back in since. Very strongly considering signing in one more time to delete my account though.
Never did WhatsApp or any of those other bullshit messaging platforms. Regular texting works fine and there has yet to be a reason to change it.
Know of any decent whatsapp alternatives?WhatsApp I have to use for work as it's heavily used in Asia and I have a bunch of clients there. I am working through each one and telling them, for the security and privacy of their communications with my firm I cannot and will not use WhatsApp with them. I reckon it will take me a month to purge it. Twitter ... gone !!! Facebook...I'll be gone from there later today. YB I'll be gone by end of week.
I use Brave browser quite a bit and it keeps track of such things too. Since I’ve started using it, it says it has....I have a privacy tracker on my browser...it doesn't work for stand alone apps. It tells me today in the last 7 days it has prevented 169 "trackers" from accessing my browsing data / information / privacy. Bottom line is EVERYTHING you do on any electronic device is being tracked by multiple companies and govts. Everything.
