There are several different levels of anonymizing, reducing tracking and increasing your privacy.
Beginner / Light
Slight to moderate increase in privacy.
You can use a browser plugin like Privacy Badger, but I have found that it can cause delays and slower load times on occasion.
I cover a lot about what Google tracks about you and how you can disable some of that tracking; view that article here. [TODO link to google history post]
For blocking ads that track a lot about you as well, I recommend you read this article. [TODO ad blocking article link]
I also recommend you disable additional add-ons [TODO Link] which can also help block super cookies.
If you are more tech savvy and want a higher level of privacy then you could consider changing your DNS provider.
Going beyond that, you could use Tor or a VPN. Tor is free and relatively easy to use, but it does not make you completely untraceable. For the minimal effort, it does give you quite a bit of additional privacy. Tor can be somewhat slow due to its overall architecture and how it works. You can learn more about Tor and get the Tor browser package here:
A VPN will usually give you increased performance over something like Tor but will cost you. However, they are quite cheap these days. I recommend using a VPN with some of the advice from the beginner section. I highly recommend you use a VPN provider that provides anonymity. Personally, I like the following VPN provider:
For advanced and complete privacy, you will want to create an online identity that is not tied to your real identity. Establishing a second virtual identity isn’t for most people and should only be explored by very tech savvy individuals. I dive deep into how to do this in this article: [TODO Link]
