Tonight I finally tackled improving my online privacy by making two changes:
- Search – Installed DuckDuckGo Plus in Firefox
- Email – Got a free personal Zoho mail account
DuckDuckGo promises no ads and no tracking.
Zoho mail promises no email scanning, and says they are Safe Harbour compliant.
So far, so good with both. I only ran into one quirk getting Zoho IMAP configured on my phone (need to use syntax server:port). Liking DDG so much already that I got their iPhone search app, and am just loving the speed and relevance of the search results.
I’ll post an update after a few weeks to months of runtime with them. For now, I expect to sleep better tonight!
