Oliver is here with us today to discuss how best to protect our online data and identities.
On How Oliver Came to Create Liberty Lives….
I understood early Spring 2020, that we weren’t being told. I was seeing all the problems that we were dealing with and these problems are obviously prolific and they’re in every single part of our lives. The system we have built has so many backdoors in it for people who want to get nefarious things done; to spy on you, to look at what you’re dealing with, what your devices are like, what you do in your own time…especially during this period of absolute insanity, I saw that we need to be looking at solutions for these issues more so than hoping that these people aren’t actually after us.
On the Tools Readily Available to Protect Our Privacy…
The first thing that everybody should take away in general, there’s two things…please stop using Gmail, Google and Google Chrome. Stop using their services. On top of that, you should stop using Microsoft Edge and any of the Microsoft services or Safari, but Google is particularly bad because of all the systems that they have intact and together. I would say for easy internet use, Brave browser is the best one to start with, it’s very similar to Google Chrome. It’s built off the chromium backbone, but it is more private than Google Chrome. There’s no affiliation and you can select the search engine in the browser. Sometimes when you install Brave, it has Google as the pre-set search engine, but you don’t have to keep it.
