Orbot and Orfox together or Orbot and DuckDuck…

I feel dumb for asking but what combination keeps me more anonymous and better at preventing tracking? It’s recommended to use Orfox with Orbot but I’ve grown to really enjoy the DDG browser that prevents trackers and forces sites to use HTTPS.

DDG provdies aggressive anti tracking tools but with Orbot enabled I’m surfing anonymously, right? So do I even need to have an browser that stops tracking when I have VPN that makes me anonymous?

EDIT: Did some research and found this in the Tor FAQ

Some people have suggested we include ad-blocking software or anti-tracking software with Tor Browser. Right now, we do not think that’s such a good idea. Tor Browser aims to provide sufficient privacy that additional add-ons to stop ads and trackers are not necessary. Using add-ons like these may cause some sites to break, which we don’t want to do. Additionally, maintaining a list of “bad” sites that should be black-listed provides another opportunity to uniquely fingerprint users.

So it looks like with Orbot running on my phone that should be good enough to not need tracker stopper.

Can employer read texts sent from a colleagues…

I just sent a pretty subversive text to a colleage about my boss, and she informed me it was a company phone. She was at her house at the time, so it wasn’t on the companies local network. She told me she deleted the text. Think they can see it?
