Yes I use VPN, duck duck go ,and phone uses color Google had been removed before it was connected to the network , have different email for every site I use . All things provided by meta are avoided. Pc and tablet are not in anyway connected to each other. If you have any suggestions open to them never been near apple

Do you feel you're important enough for Google etc to care about your online life or who you know?

If your friends use mobile phones that sync to the cloud then the tech giants almost certainly know your connection to them anyway and will have a pretty good idea of your network of friends.

No but why give them information ,

But that won't get them any information that can be used to pester me,

So very true do not see the point is giving information away , if they want it boy they have to work for it. Now. I am not in charge of our business not so concerned but old habits die hard

Forgot to say get to duckduckgo via Firefox.
It's not great problem to do so why not? Easy to set up one-time email addresses , park out Aldi ( other shops are available) VPN to gmx set up address ( want mobile but most trucks have a number on them) and you are away.

Re: Saving Mobile Phone Contacts

I'm fine using my phone the way it was intended. Same single email for almost everything. Just different passwords for many sites and samsung pass to save all my logins so when changing phone I don't have to remember all the passwords. Cloud backed up photos and contacts too.
