If youre using Chrome or Safari, even in Private/Incognito mode, your data is being logged and recorded. If you want to browse the internet privately on your phone, youll need a couple of things
Your phone, whether iPhone or Android, stores and shares all kinds of data about you from browsing cookies about your browsing history to your location via apps like Tinder and Google Maps. If you own a phone, youre on the grid and that means youre trackable. In more ways than one.
Theres not much you can do about this, and you shouldnt be too concerned about it either unless youre doing illegal stuff. For 99.9% of people, Internet security isnt something that should keep you awake at night, however, there are a bunch of things you can do to ensure youre safer when browsing the web especially on public WiFi networks.
And the first port of call is getting a VPN.
Why do you need a VPN? Simple: a VPN will keep ALL your internet activity completely anonymous, so whether youre downloading torrents via PirateBay or browsing Facebook and chatting to friends, whatever you do will be completely hidden no ISP, government snoop, or hacker will be able to view your activity or data.
And when it comes to VPNs, youll want to use a quality provider I use NordVPN because it offers military-grade encryption, its super-fast, and it is has a 100% no-logs policy, meaning it doesnt log, track, or store any of your data, unlike free VPNs which track and share your data with third-parties like advertisers and marketing companies.
Dont scrimp on your VPN, go with the best and know that youre 100% covered from all angles. Anything less and youll be left exposed.
How do you browse the web in a completely anonymous manner, without your ISP, or anybody else for that matter, knowing what youre doing? Again, the simplest way to do this is using a VPN; it hides your IP and masks all your activities, so no one not the government nor your internet service provider will be able to monitor and/or track your browsing activity online.
This is why people that download a lot of P2P and torrents use VPNs. They do it because not only does a VPN allow you to get around web restrictions, like blocked sites (think PirateBay), but it also ensures that you can then download media (legal and illegal) without getting caught. Basically, if you DO use torrents in 2020, and youre not using a VPN, youre leaving yourself wide open to some pretty serious expose
Chrome, like a lot of browsers, has a private browsing mode; Chromes is called Incognito Mode. But how incognito is Googles Incognito Mode? As it turns out, not that much your data and activity are still accessible by your ISP, even when using Incognito Mode.
Using Incognito Mode will prevent anyone on your network from seeing your browsing history, but it will not stop your ISP from viewing what youve been looking at. And if your IP is traceable, your data can be extracted and sold to the highest bidder (advertisers).
On top of this, the government can also force your ISP to hand over your data too.
The ONLY way to get around this is to use a VPN. This is the #1 reason why millions of people use them in the first place; its not because they have something to hide, but because they dont want billion-dollar corporations like Google using their online activities to make money. And I can totally get behind that.
If you have an Android phone or an iPhone and you want to get away from Google and Apple and Microsoft, you do have another way of browsing the web. Its called DuckDuckGo and it is basically the ANTI-GOOGLE; it doesnt track or store any data about you and its search results have been shown to be more, how should I say this less politically-motivated than Googles
If you want to browse the web completely anonymously, your best bet is DuckDuckGo combined with a VPN like NordVPN. Having these two things combined will ensure that NO ONE, not your ISP, the feds, or Google, will be able to track, monitor, and access any past records of what youve been doing online. Again, just make sure you dont use a free VPN; theyre terrible and will use your data to make money.
If youre keen on upping your security and online privacy in 2020 (and you really should be), your best bet is using a VPN (we recommend NordVPN; its fast, secure, and 100% no-logs) when youre accessing the web on unsecured networks basically, when youre out of your home and using public WiFi and mobile data.
You wont need it active] all the time, just when you want to access things that your mobile data provider blocks P2P sites, certain websites, and content that is locked to a specific region. At home, you can use a VPN to unlock things like Netflix and Disney+, accessing their full US catalog of content.
Ditto for US-exclusive services like HULU.
And if you dont want Google, Apple, or Microsoft mining your data for profit, stop using their browsers. Go with DuckDuckGo instead. Its totally free, they dont track or store anything about you, and its search engine, while not quite as sophisticated as Googles, is ideal for 90% of search queries. In fact, in some cases, it is preferable.
