Worth mentioning that (at least in Chrome), two of her recommendations conflict. Using incognito mode will by default prevent extensions (such as HTTPS Everywhere, or Adblock Plus, which you should also use) from running. Be sure to set these to run in incognito mode at chrome://extensions.

I keep seeing duckduckgo mentioned but never startpage. Is there some flaw in startpage or advantage of duckduckgo that I'm missing?

@Jush No, nothing wrong with startpage.com, it's just not as popular as DDG -- even though it exists quite a bit longer! (Same with messenger apps, btw: Threema exists longer than Telegram, but the latter gets all the fame.)

Wow these are terrible.
1. Just use https://
2. DDG search results are terrible.
3. What? Incognito mode is basically "don't remember history on this computer while I'm incognito".

I have a better idea. Just one step:
1. Stop using the Internet.

@wilsonterm You are right. I would love to see more people using Threema. Well at least people are using some sort encrypted messengers.
