Should I keep social media accounts for discre…

I have a number of social media accounts, all linked to 10 minute mail accounts and such for discreet purposes (e.g. viewing of other people’s pages, building up of fake profiles). All of them have seperate passwords, and all information is completely faked (randomised cities, nationalities, genders, etcetera). The accounts are only logged on with a VPN (I use protonVPN), on a seperate browser from what I normally use. Javascript blocker, privacy badger and ublock origin are installed, cookies, history and cache purged once the browser is closed. However, is this secure enough, or should I abandon these accounts altogether?

  • A cheap Xiaomi or Wyze “cloud” camera that can have their firmware rewritten

No closed source blobs, even the microcode is free software. This can compete with intel xeon and amd epyc in price to performance too. Do you guys think this is too good or be true or are we beginning to see user respecting hardware?
