Alright lets see here, so you have done the following:
- Installed a safer browser than the mainstream ones; Like SRWare Iron/Vivaldi (but not TOR)
- Checked the “Do Not Track”, and “Cookies only for the session”(or sth similar) Boxes
- Using extensions like HTTPS everywhere and uBlockOrigin, maybe even NoScript/ScripSafe stuff
- Deleted your Facebook etc (or still trying to) even the apps on mobile(if you still have them)
- Using a VPN
- Disabled most tracking settings on Win10 (They still do it)
But you still do not feel safe, there is still much to learn.
The thought of “Is privacy even still possible?” is slowly creeping up on you.

Forget the list. He goes to the block. –Imperial Captain
I guess we all will have to fabricate our own solutions to this matter at some point. Deciding what to be okay with and what not. The rabbit hole goes very deep, deeper than what I thought anyways.
