Wondering how to find the right balance of privacy and convenience, or struggling with the mental strain of a journey towards personal privacy? This episode, we’re sitting down with j43 to chat about the mental strain that can be caused by a journey towards privacy, and a deeper look at parallel economies or “second realms”.

j43’s recommended ways to Opt Out:

  • Use HTTPS only!
  • Blocking trackers, at DNS/IP whenever possible
  • Blending into the noise, having a portion of your digital identity that looks more “normal” to corporations and 3rd parties
  • DYOR and find a good VPN provider that you trust
  • Don’t rely 100% on Tor for privacy alone
