The idea being you can ask things like “what are some things I can use in place of the Facebook app” Or “how can I harden windows"And you’ll get responses from people with some level of social awareness who actually offer to help with your situation. You can’t ask anything in this sub without a bunch of neckbeard extremists telling you how you absolutely must run Linux, tails, never use a smartphone, and if you don’t spend every waking moment acting like you’re trying to hide from a federal agency then you shouldn’t even try being private at all.This madness has to stop. Some people don’t want maximum privacy. They just want more privacy, and they don’t want to be chastised every time they come onto this fucking subreddit.
I haven’t used the browser in a few months; until then I noticed that if the program (or my computer) crashes, I would start it up again and feature google’s “chrome didn’t shut down correctly” notification, and it actually restore all of my old tabs if I clicked it.Anyway, I started the browser up again recently; it did not feature the restore button and the “new tab” page would show the “trackers blocked” counter reset (or at zero). However, on TheIntercept.com the search bar would actually suggest terms that I entered in other sites months ago.What frightens me more is that the front page of YouTube recommended a lot of scenes from Lord of the Rings rather than the standard clickbait videos for new visitors that I would see in a fresh incognito session. I haven’t watched any LOTR-related videos in this session and I have no memory of using Epic to do so in previous sessions; although I could certainly be wrong about that, the YouTube recommendations on Epic looked just like those on chrome (non-incognito).All of this however went away after I shut down my browser properly and re-opened it.Epic also has a built-in “See Who’s Spying on You in other browsers” page that displays all of the trackers from my other browsers after analyzing their HTML cookies. Is there any way it can obtain browsing history data from those cookies for Chrome? Does google get any data on me for this>Has anyone else experienced this? Pardon that I’m no tech expert, and thanks for any input.
