Install an Adblocker and generally refuse all non-essential cookies.

Use Signal as your messenger, it’s fully encrypted and well designed.

Never allow any commercial app to access your contact list.

Use a VPN when doing sensitve stuff online.

Be aware of the extensive telemetry of commercial operating systems like Android or Windows.

Create and maintain a shadow persona for your online activities, with an inspired name, corresponding email, random birthdate and disjoint interests to your own.
