Well with privacy always under assault, besides a VPN, you need an Adblocker and tracking masker. Here are some choices:
- Ublock Origins. This isn’t regular Ublock (which isn’t developed anymore), but a new fork that has a Safari build.
- Adguard is another one which gets good user reviews
Then the ones that are questionable as they leak information:
- Ghostery. They sell your information apparently
- Adblock Plus. The one that is the most popular but they let ads through as it’s their business model.
Another question is what about tracking blockers. Well things like Ghostery seem superfluous if you have an Adblock.
