How to protect your online privacy in 2018 | From noob to pro in 14 minutes or less | Tutorial

I made this hopefully easy to follow tutorial on how to protect your online privacy that
you can follow without needing any prior knowledge of how cyber security works. There are many degrees of action people are
willing take in order to protect privacy of their lives on the Internet. So this tutorial starts with getting the most
amount of privacy possible without sacrificing any convenience, and gradually shifts this
balance towards threat models where convenience can’t be an issue. This video will start from minimal privacy
protection and continue all the way to the maximum privacy you can get without cutting
the cord. If at any point during the video you feel
like this is too much for you, feel free to leave it there and keep your privacy protection
at a level that suits you best. Also you could do me a favor if you commented
your level of privacy protection you decided to go with. The first thing we are going to do is to change
our web browser. Right now you are most likely on Google Chrome,
or maybe even your system’s default browser. A digital space where you reveal the most
about yourself are your browsing habits. Your browsing history is unique and speaks
a lot about what you think and how you think. Trackers can know not just what websites you
visit, but also for how long and for what purpose. This metadata reveal so much about you advertisers
and government spies don’t even need to know the content of those sites. The single best thing you can do right now
is to install Firefox from Mozilla. Firefox is a free and open source software,
which is essential for all the privacy software. You see when companies hide what their products
are made off, their proprietary code most likely serves as a backdoor for government
spies and advertisers. This is true for all tech giants as we know
thanks to Snowden’s leaks. In November 2017 Firefox went through a major
performance and speed update and is now twice as fast as Google Chrome. So you can safely switch to Firefox without
sacrificing your web browsing experience at all. After you installed Firefox, go to the “preferences”,
and under “privacy & security”, set the “Tracking Protection” to be always on. While you are there tick the box for “Do
Not Track”. Also you can block “Third-party cookies”
. By turning these features on, you don’t
risk breaking any websites. Firefox will block most commonly known analytics,
social media, and advertising trackers. Side benefit of this is that websites will
render twice as fast, you’ll consume much less bandwidth, and your device will work
faster draining less battery. If you want to block even more ads and trackers
we are going to install uBlock Origin. This is the most efficient blocker of malware,
trackers, spyware, and all the annoying ads out there. Go to the “add-ons” tab, click “get
add-ons” and search for uBlock Origin. This is a very powerful add-on and it can
be used to do a lot of things. But for now you are just good to install it
and enjoy the web much faster and safer. Ublock Origin blocks ads and trackers much
better than AdBlock Plus and if you choose to support a content creator you like, it’s
super easy to temporarily turn off blocking on their website. There are some behind the scenes tracking
mechanisms that you should also take care of. Luckily this is also trivially easy. All you need is to just install HTTPS Everywhere
and DecentralEYEs. Both of these extensions require zero attention
once you install them. HTTPS Everywhere will force websites to use
encrypted versions and not leak your private information by clandestinely loading unencrypted
content. DecentralEyes is excellent at working behind
the scenes. It stops many requests to popular Content
Delivery Networks like Google Hosted Libraries, which can read your data as it passes through
their network. The next biggest vector of information flow
that reveals a lot about you are your search queries. If you like to search a lot, you are giving
your search engine a lot of information about your mind. Your search habits, just like your browsing
history, are uniquely identifiable. No two people search for the exact same queries
given the amount of metadata Google can collect from you while you use it. You should change your default search engine
into either Duckduckgo or If you still want to receive Google results
but more privately, you can try out or It’s good to have more than one search engine
in your list just for the sake of being exposed to more than just one algorithm of information
flow. For a more in-depth overview of privacy focused
search engines check out my video on that topic. Now that we have made corporate surveillance
much less profitable for the advertisers, what else is there? When we blocked most common trackers, the
next thing advertisers are going to resort to are our online identities. You know, all your accounts on Reddit, Facebook,
email, and even Youtube. This is because right now you are most likely
in a very bad habit. You have this one browser where you sign in
to your online accounts, maybe even all of them at once, and you surf the Internet as
if nobody was watching. But many of those accounts are watching even
after you log out. It’s possible to completely kill this kind
of tracking fairly easily as well. In order for this to work you are going to
have to say good bey to your browsing history and start using private mode permanently. For convenience go to “Preferences” and
in “Privacy & Security” set your Firefox to Never remember history. This way each time you launch Firefox, it
will start in a private mode. This is all it takes to prevent websites from
reading back your browsing history. If you want to remember your browsing tabs for later reference, learn to use and organize bookmarks. It’s easy to remember an entire session
when you right-clik on any tab and choose “bookmark all tabs”. When you close a browsing tab, website you
just left planted a cookie on your device to continue tracking in real time. To stop this all you need is to install Cookie
AutoDelete on your Firefox. When you delete everything like this, it means you are going to have type in your passwords all the time. But that’s good! You shouldn’t store your passwords on the
browser because they’re stored unencrypted and hackers can steal them easily. Begin to familiarize yourself with good password
managers. But don’t just trust any of them. Good options are Keepass2, LessPass, and MasterPasswordApp. The only way websites can still track you
now is when you are logged in and browse the web simultaneously on the same browsing session. Even in private mode, Facebook still collects information about each website you visit while logged in. The benefit of using private mode is when
you log out and close your browser, Firefox will delete all trackers Facebook secretively
planted on your device. The only problem now is that if you want to
prevent Facebook from tracking your browsing habits in real time but you really want to
be logged in simultaneously as you browse the web. Is it possible to do it without being tracked? Absolutely! Through a process known as compartmentalization. This is a process where you are going to have
two privacy configured web browsers and use them for separate online activities. In practice, you will use one browser for
your online accounts and another browser for surfing the Internet. Now you can go back to Google Chrome… just
kidding! Don’t go back to Google Chrome. It’s evil. Install Brave browser instead! Brave is automatically configured to block
ads and trackers. It’s not as good as privacy configured Firefox
and it’s not as powerful, but it’s still perfectly viable for compartmentalization. So once you install Brave, before you start
using it, make sure you harden it for privacy even more. Make it block all ads, phishing, malware,
and turn on Fingerprinting Protection. Go to the “Security” tab and under “Private
Data” set Brave to delete everything each time you close it. So now that you have two browsers, Brave and
Firefox, you should choose which browser you’ll ALWAYS use one ONLY for your Internet accounts
and the other one for general browsing. At this point, I’ll let you choose which
browser you want for your online accounts and which one for other stuff. Remember to never break this separation rule. Let’s pause for a minute to look back at
what we just did: websites can’t track us through their trackers because we blocked
most of them, they can’t collect our browsing history, because we are always deleting everything,
they can’t figure our search history because we use private search engines, and they can’t
spy on us through our online identities because we use compartmentalization. What’s the next biggest way we can be spied
on? Our IP address. There are two channels of surveillance: websites
can use our IP to identify us, although not as reliably as installing remote trackers
on our devices. And our ISP has full access to our browsing
history, which advertisers and governments can buy. We can kill both of these adversaries with
one shot. Although you still have to take two steps
to go about this… For the first step, we are going to hide our
IP address and browsing history completely. The best way to achieve this is through Tor
browser. Tor offers you privacy by anonymity. This means that your Internet traffic is still
going to be public, that’s just how the Internet works. There is no way around it. But think of Tor as putting an Anonymous Mask
from V for Vendetta on your face and imagine you are part of a huge crowd of people wearing
that mask as well. Observers can see what you are doing but they
can never tell your identities apart. So once you go home and put off your mask,
nobody is going to be able to link what you did while wearing that mask to your real name. Each time you want to access a website, Tor
will reroute your traffic through three random encrypted hops called relays. None of these relays can see to the full network,
so it’s impossible to track the original destination of your request at all points
on the Tor network. Because of this hopping your traffic will
be slower so don’t be surprised by this. To achieve the highest level of privacy possible,
it is recommended to use Tor all the time. But there might be two downsides for you:
1) sometimes Tor network might be too slow for you and you maybe really need that speed
2) Tor can’t do magic and just as I mentioned earlier, if you connect to Facebook through
Tor, and browse the web on other tabs, Facebook can still collect your browsing history from
Tor. So like with Firefox, you’d have to log
out of Facebook, close Tor, and start a new session before continuing to your other online
activities. To solve both of these downsides, you can
make Tor a part of your compartmentalization strategy. You can use Tor for all light browsing where
you don’t need your full broadband speed. It’s very useful to browse for goods you
want to buy on Tor and when you actually decide to buy a product online, you can go back to
regular Firefox and a make direct purchase without giving your vendor your search history. Compartmentalization with Tor can look something
like this: dedicate Firefox to all high-speed stuff you need, like watching videos, have
Brave for your accounts, and Tor for general browsing. Now there will be very limited amount of data
leaking to the spies. You can make it even more difficult for them
to make sense of your data by randomizing your data footprint. To do it just go to the website makeinternetnoise
and just hit “make noise”. It will randomly browse the web and fill your
history with so much mess it’s not going to be possible to make sense of it. As you advance your privacy protection skills,
you should consider learning about script-blocking. It’s nothing too difficult, it just requires
more attention from you as blocking scripts breaks most websites. The easiest way to block scripts is through
Brave shield. Here you’ll start to learn what it looks
when you block them and re-allow them for certain websites. The best way to gain full control is to start
using extension like uMatrix and NoScript. NoScript is used by Tor and the best way to
learn it is to just test out different things it can do. For example you can whitelist some websites
you trust, or allow certain scripts to always load while block others. The same can be done with uMatrix, and uBlock
Origin. To block scripts on uBlock origin you need
to enable the “advanced user” mode and set uBlock to block all third party scripts. Umatrix essentially does the same but with
more granular control. I have a tutorial on how to use uMatrix that
you should check out to learn more about script blocking through this add-on. Now that you eliminated virtually all online
tracking, it’s about time you start minimizing your data footprint by switching to services
that respect your privacy. You should start thinking about what software
you install on your device and who you want to trust with your data. For your email provider, switch to encrypted
services that never sell your data to advertisers or governments. These include free services like,, or, or a paid service like For instant messaging, anything from big giants
like Facebook or Apple can’t be trusted. Best mobile instant messaging app is Signal,
which is similar to WhatsApp but Signal is completely open source, has uncompromising
end-to-end encryption, and doesn’t leak your metadata to advertisers. Good instant messenger on desktop is Cryptocat,
which has very easy conventional functionality and is very secure. On top of exchanging messages you can securely
share files and audio/video recordings. Start building a relationship with free and
open source software. Everything mainstream has a privacy respecting
open source alternative. For all office work, consider LibreOffice. It’s incredibly popular, it’s what I used
to write essays and do presentations for my college and unless you are heavy office worker,
it really is enough. Linux is really great as an operating system
right now. You can install Linux alongside your current
operating system on the same hard drive. I recommend you start with something popular
like Linux Mint or Ubuntu. The more you fall in love the more you can
test out and grow. It’s really a whole new world of ideas and
possibilities that you can’t understand unless you try it. Would you believe that this whole video was
produced and edited on Linux? To learn more about privacy protection you
can read more on and join the community on subreddits /r/privacy and
/r/privacytoolsio. And while you are there go to the “about:config”
tab on your Firefox and hardcode some privacy configuration from the guide. If you have any questions about protecting
your online privacy, leave them in the comment section down below. Please engage in liking, sharing, and commenting

  1. question, Would what you described (basic) compartmentalization of using brave and firefox work if I had two different windows of firefox?

  2. Watch Zoz's Don't Fuck it Up video from a recent DefCon! Even if you're not using TOR for illegal or illicit things like the people discussed in that video, it will show you how poor operation security (OpSec) will allow you to be identified even in TOR!

    Also, and I'm not sure which to recommend, but a VPN service is a good idea for hiding your traffic from your ISP. That doesn't mean it's hidden from everybody, so as long as you know your threat model and know to which extent you want to hide yourself online, it may be an option that fits some models.

    DeGoogling my life is a future project for me. I am finally cleaning up my other social media accounts, but Google will be the hardest.

    Unless Libre Phone releases soon and passes all security audits…

  4. This content is very valuable. It's great to put subtitles in English because that allows the translator of Youtube translate the subtitle(which is acurate), instead of making the awful "Automatic translation" from a subtitle generated automatically. I say it is great because it is favorable for the Spanish-speaking community. However it would be better yet to put subtitles in Spanish directly. If you want i can help with that.

  5. Hi H/all

    First, thank you for your videos, they and own experiences etc. have inspired me to dive into an independent and off grid setup on my deveises (at least as much as it can be done by a medieval former craftsman with a minimum of experience with deeper settings and handling). So I basically start at 0, but -i am motivated to dive into it and learn more about this world. Just don't know where to start! and since you encourage for quistions, her is my quake as a newbe.
    Have had Mac devised about the last 10 years and have been no grove satisfied with it. Are not fanatical mac’er but got an opportunity at some time and then i have been hanging next to them since. Having only rarely used apples many options for various clouds, sharing and feathres but recently I had to put some atention in to some of their things, which gave rise to further consideration.

    Standing in a situation that I have to start learning and working with technical drawing and 3D, while putting a new and/or refurbished used Mac up all over again. Since I have to leave my old craftsmanship and have to work more with and on computer, I have become aware that there is a thing or two I must learn!
    Have taken a uprun, and now, is a good opportunity to learn new and get a more proven behavior with the network. Have ben searched for something that I knew existed without any luck and now I have found you! and what youtube otherwise offers on the sideline.
    Can/will you guide a novice to get started from point almost 0, or can you refer to a good place to start for a newbe?
    Im looking for easy and various ways to do setup as well as beginners slowly and educational tutorials for installing each program and use, and work from there. Understand that linux might be to consider in the long run.

    When I hear what you say I get a sliced feeling/understanding that mac is a overkill and superfluous, if you switch to linux, tor, brave, fierfox, duck duck, linear etc. Can you give me your assumption if there is anything else I should get into as mac’er, before I move into this (to me) new world? Should I throw the mac out of the window and start over on PC? (In the long term!)
    When I first time start setting on the new computer what should I consider?

    Has it some significance that I am launching a brand new mac?

    Which order should I install which programs, or dose it any matter? Ublock before brave or?

    What and how much should I consider to write when I set up the machine the very first time; eg language, country, name, password, time machine, registration, etc.? I Will also like to know som basic about ip adr, vpn and epics relatede to that. Any sugest?

    Are there any of the "alternative" programs that work better with Mac than others?

    What’s to consider doing in relation to moving data via iCloud to the new machine?

    What’s prioritet first when starting from point 0? I have to take it by small steps.

    Can you recommend a tranlator?:) i need it!

    I also think that there my be a apatient forum eg via firefox or …(and later on tor or otherwise) that will be able to help with upcoming discoveries and challenges, do you have any suggestions for where to look?

    Don't know if this is the right place for my questions, if not – please bare over with me and please send me further if you have an idea of ​​where I stand and where I am going.

    Hi from skandicrafter

  6. When I checked the brave installer on virus total it showed that there is a virus in the installer. Should I download it anyways?

  7. Firefox does NOT care about your privacy. The most recent versions of firefox have telemetry which cannot be disabled in the about:config or settings pages; the only way to remove the spywayre is by editing and compiling the source code. Mozilla has been slowly increasing the amount of data they collect, and firefox has not been a secure browser for years. GNU icecatz ungoogled chromium, and the TOR browser are the only browsers that can actually be trusted for privacy.

    Firefox is to broswers what linux mint is to operating systems: the best privacy that lazy people can get, but still not very private. (linux mint includes proprietary binary blobs and some telemetries are enabled in the default firefox install. Notably, the search engine is yahoo by default and it's very difficult to change. Yahoo is owned by verizon and is possibly even worse about privacy than google search.)

  8. idk if its important to know or not but brave is based on chrome, you can see it by hovering your mouse over the settigns button it says chrome://settings also adons can only be installed over the chrome webstore. I just wanted to point it out if no one ever noticed, like i said idk if it actually is important for privacy matters.

    EDIT: btw i am using the windows version of brave idk if its different for other operating systems but i gotta say the browser in the video doenst look the same when it comes to settings

  9. 5:54 "Planted a cookie on your device to continue tracking in real-time"
    Thats not how cookies work at all. Cookies are domain specific.
    No other site has access to any others site cookies.
    They're sent with every requests on THAT domain, so you dont
    need to login everytime for example.

    It seems you do not really have an idea what you're talking about here,
    but instead chose to spread fear.

  10. Great video. I stopped after compartmentalizing my browsing and blocking 3rd party scripts, I'm not ready to switch operating yet.

  11. Will it do any good having MacOS and doing all the tips mentioned in the video? Also, what are your thoughts on "Little Snitch"?

  12. This video helped. sorted a few things out after watching Thanks 🤮. Not even signed in Google chrome anymore. Just use duckduckgo. All settings are turn off. So goodbye Google from my tablet.🤮

  13. So a couple questions. You say to use Brave browser for logging into accounts but no web surfing. But for logging into accounts such as YouTube, email (proton mail), and other accounts you need cookies enabled. Would you recommend getting the browser extensions and whitelisting these sites for access? Thanks in advance

  14. *To set the current version of Brave to delete data when you quit*, click "Advanced" at the bottom of the settings page. Under "Privacy and Security" go to "Content Settings" and go to "Cookies". I THINK that's it. Can someone correct me?

  15. What about links from social media, re: compartmentalised browsing? Many social media sites don't render the proper URL, but a forwarding address used for collecting statistics etc. Are they safe to paste into the general browsing browser?

  16. Incredible. I have listened to it 4 times and each time I understand it more. Regarding Brave – Brave does not prevent WebRTC tracking.

  17. Keep preaching it, brother.

    Here is my current status:
    – Firefox
    – GHacks user.js for Firefox
    – uBlock Origin
    – uMatrix
    – Decentraleyes
    – HTTPS Everywhere
    – CanvasBlocker
    – Disable WebRTC
    – Cookie AutoDelete
    – Multi-Account Containers
    – Firefox Private Mode (via Never Remember History)
    – TOR Browser, for true anonymity
    – Pi-hole ad-blocking DNS
    – Encrypted DNS-over-HTTPS (to Cloudflare)
    – DuckDuckGo
    – LastPass (manage unique & strong passwords)
    – Switch to new / encrypted email (ProtonMail)
    – Using VPN (not incorporated in any of 14eyes)

    I am using the following mobile tools (not listed above)
    – Signal

    I have also set up VirtualBox. I am starting to use the following:
    – Tails
    – Whonix
    – QubesOS

  18. I am fascinated by your videos.
    Thank you very much for taking your time to do this and share knowledge.
    I hope you have a very happy life!
    God Bless!

  19. What about hardware? There is a minix operating system on intel chips that can edit things when your computer is powered off but still plugged in

  20. Opera is faster and less RAM hungry than Firefox (I know because I need such a browser on a PC with under 4GB of RAM)
    Opera is also more secure than Firefox (as is Chromium aside from google tracking), and if you read exactly what the Opera devs do to Chromium, you'll know why I say this.
    Opera is also more secure than Comodo Dragon, a Chromium-based browser built by the security company Comodo who put other companies like Avast and Kaspersky to shame.
    still wanna keep using Firefox??

    sorry for my tone, this has to be the 24th time I've said as such
    I've been looking at what browsers provide for security for years, and so far have yet to find something better.

  21. I'm gonna challenge you on the unencrypted passwords in your browser thing
    I do know passwords are stored locally when you save them
    but I have a pass-phrase I have to put in as extra security for passwords, bookmarks, and everything
    yes I have an Opera account to sync this data ( which should be encrypted ) because I have multiple devices this data is shared with.
    if you know where to find this data on my HDD, please tell me so I can verify.

  22. ok while I was a bit bias on your first video I saw on compartmentalization
    this video I can approve, as it's more generalized rather than "use this website on this browser" "use that website on that, but never sign in"
    since you can't exactly tell people what they can do, but you can present them with options and tell them how they should be used. 😉

  23. I dig this…and thanks for all the info, but honestly…for the average Joe Blow this is too much. I'm no novice at computers and I'm like WOW…! I have taken steps, like deleting FB and using Duck Duck go…but all of this is for peeps that are crazy savy at computers. Things like downloading the TOR browser, having several emails that I've never even heard of, closing my browser after I'm done surfing (cause honestly…I just leave em open and hit the sleep button) using a password manager…I mean damn! And there is so much more…I guess I'm fucked! You might as well live like Jack Reacher. But again…thanks for the info, I wish I was a computer geek, but I only get on the net a couple hours here and there.

  24. I believe that nobody reads this.. but if please comment or give a thumbs up so that I know that it reached someone.
    Well I don't use Windows anymore (well for gaming on my desktop PC but I never connect it to the internet and I ONLY do gaming with it offline) and I never had any Apple crap. I most of the time use Tails that I cloned from a clean Tails installation (that is my 2nd Tails stick) that was downloaded over TOR from a Tails installation made using Lubuntu that was installed from a live Lubuntu stick created on Windows.. So it seems to be.. SAFE AS POSSIBLE. I don't think there could be any Linux-modifying Windows malware that survived all these reinstallations.. Then I am planning to install Qubes OS on my Laptop, or Parrot Sec. OS for pentesting a bit. Or both. And maybe Lubuntu as well to have a clean outdated OS on which I can exploit some security vulnerabilities xD But most of the time I really use Tails. Then I have a completely anonymous mail account that doesn't contain any private info, logs also failed logins with IP-address (and automatically detects if TOR was used to acces, that easily supports encryption and is just .. good. Protonmail. I only access it over protonmailirockerxow.onion. NEVER using the clearnet. Then I have a mail account from the university and one privately that contains my real name and address and that is my "official" mail address that I would also give to a stranger. My protonmail address is only for sensitive private stuff and I only give it to people I trust.
    Then I use many Firefox/Chrome addons:
    On both: HTTPSEverywhere, ublock origin, I don't care about cookies, Terms of Service didn't read, DuckDuckGo, Youtube auto ad skipper
    On Chrome: umatrix or ScriptSafe; On Firefox NoScript
    Then the Tails verification addon if I download Tails and then if I don't use a live system I always clean up cookies and so on. Javascript is normally deactivated in browsers that I use. "Disconnect" on firefox was also a nice addon.
    Oh and on Android as a guy who loves flashing recoverys, new ROMs and so on I use Signal and Threema on it. Why Threema, it's closed source? Well an independent security research team had access to all server source code and the app source code and said that it's safe, and a private person also could reverse engineer the protocol to write a desktop client that worked sending a test message and is now available on github. The biggest Threema advantage is that you don't need any phone number to use it and it has many features. Signal is good because it's free and you can easier convince people to try a free app as alternative to whatsapp.
    And of course I use Greenify, have a root browser, all these cool root tools, a custom recovery, backups, all encrypted, Xposed framework to use Xprivacy !!!!!!!!! which is the most important modification you HAVE to do with Android to get safe and REALLY GOOD WORKING sandbox isolation aka permission management and FakeGApps to be able to use power saving Google Cloud Messaging service without Google Play Services but instead the microG apps! Big advantage because you can greenify Threema and still receive messages by waking it up via cross app functionality that is provided by microG (push messaging) and available through Greenify.
    Finally, say I'm paranoid or not, but I have fun doing it so why shouldn't I do all this stuff while increasing my privacy?
    The best tip is to go outside in the nature without any technical device. There you feel good and are anonymous/private. Only use technical devices when needed. Don't store passwords in password managers, store them in your brain and have a backup in the form of a hidden piece of paper in mirror-inverted writing (or some stuff like that). BE CREATIVE!

  25. I love your videos, so much useful information. I like how you don't just say, everyone is watching us, but also how to minimize it from happening.

  26. I´ve been using True Key by McAfee for several months to keep all my generated passwords. Now that I´m seeing this I´m not quite sure if having a password manager that can only work as a plugin app is a good idea. Is it mandatory that the password manager is an offline app in your computer instead of something running in your browser? Thank you so much for the great content and education, your videos are completely changing the way I use the internet.

  27. @ 13:40: I JUST KNEW That I Wouldnt Be Able To Watch This WHole VIdeo Without Seeing Richard Stallman's Face! He Is A (Weirdo/Legend/Hippie/GNU Founder/Insert Other Descriptions Here)!

  28. Hi,

    You said a few words about Signal for android – for me it's a bit too much , although I am considering it.


    It's a great app, which I use, and to which I convinced many people and many friends of mine.

    How secure is it?
    How secure is it comparing to Signal?
    Are there any cons for using TELEGRAM? (cons that go around priv/anon/security etc. OFC)

    Thanks 🙂

    P.S. I am a HUGE FAN of your videos and i am implementing maaaaaaany thing that you suggest 🙂 Big thanks 🙂

  29. Be aware that many websites will not load or refuse you if you enable strict blocking. Its a constant battle and websites can now use code to display ads, and some website can detect ad blockers and respond that you should turn them off.
