Finding Personal Information Online

Is there a centralized place where I can see all the websites which hold personal information? I’ve begun removing myself from websites such as Whitepages and Radaris, however I’m unsure as to where else my personal information may be kept.Thanks all

Informed Consent in the Digital Age

The concept of Informed Consent has been used since the 1900s in the medical field to make sure patients knew risks associated with different treatment plans. Doctors had a duty to disclose these risks to their patients because the physician was in a position of power with information asymmetry. Check out my article on why we can use that same theory with tech companies today to make sure users are better informed and not taken advantage of.https://medium.com/mineful/informed-consent-in-the-digital-age-812f8fc12af1

Another Q: Startpage vs DuckDuck GO

Does anyone have any recommendations on why to choose one over the other? I don’t know which is better for privacy or if they are both the same. I know that Startpage uses google results, so you tend to get more of what you are looking for. However does this create any issues on who is able to see what or if there is some way for Google to track and see what you are doing?​Who prefers what!

Compartmentalization of the browser

Hi, I just want to ask: I watched some video on ytb about this subject and it was recommended to me that I should use one browser for accounts only (like facebook, google, twitter etc.) and another one for general browsing trough the internet. I was wondering if some websites like reddit for example are safe to login in my normal browser.Like facebook is known for tracking your history if you’re logged in a you should use different browser to prevent this but do I really have to do this for every website that requires login or is it just for some of those?PS: I’m quite a beginner at those privacy ‘things’ so I rly appreciate all the tips you could give me. Thanks.
