How do I stop Instagram from tracking me even …

I got a new phone last week and only selected yes to being tracked by very few apps. Waze, my bank, some travelling apps, Uber. Only those. Everything else is no. No messaging apps can track me, no social apps.

I even use an app to make the phone believe I’m in another state.

Yet, Instagram always know where I am and it shows me ads that are creepily close to my home. Even if I recreated now to be tracked, and even with the fake location app on.

I want to know how it works and how to stop it.

Been getting mails from almost all the websites about the update in the privacy policy in their website. Reading them, i found no information which i was able to understand. What do you think the reason is?


If the question doesn’t belong here, where can i ask this?

Has anyone pulled off the Veracrypt Hidden OS …

Posting this here since the other time I botched the title.

This is in regards to Veracrypt.

One of my laptops I use for gaming came with Windows 10. I dual booted it with Windows 8.1 since I can pick updates and support is good till ‘23, and don’t touch 10. The Win 10 OS is on a SSD, 8.1 on a normal hard drive in the computer- it came with two, as many do today(something surely someone else here has run into)

I want to try to do the Hidden OS, but don’t know if it’s workable since I have a double-boot system, and figure that screen might pop up before the bootloader anyway – has anyone figured this out?

I’m also not sure about the process of setting this up without messing up the Win 8.1 OS – I have Macrium Reflect backing it up, but am a bit nervous about proceeding… (I’m aware that you’re supposed to be careful, or completely avoid SSDs- but I assume the hidden OS option would require encrypoting that also)

I am aware of the Hidden Volume Option which Veracrypt’s documentation cites as not being quite as secure as the Hidden OS, due to the possibility of temp files- To my knowledge, something like Bleach Bit or perhaps even CCleaner (i’ve heard the name Privazer tossed around also) should target the temp files- wouldn’t this handle that?
