Evolving Advice, for an Evolving Internet.
Basic Privacy Tips
Go to Settings/General/iPhone Storage.
Scroll down to see the entire list of apps on your phone.
Apps are ordered from most storage used to least and labeled with ‘Last Used’ time stamps.
Use this information to decide which apps to delete and delete right from this list.
(Useful extra tip: Don’t forget to empty the ‘Recently Deleted Album in iPhoto to free up more space on your device).
While Android does not have a “Last Used” for apps, here is a fast way to get the information you want.
Open Google Play Store.
Tap the hamburger icon (three lines) in the upper left.
Select ‘My Apps & Games” and then tap ‘Installed’ in the menu at the top.
Sort the apps in ‘Last Used’ in the sorting option in upper right. Now you will see time stamps on each app.
Choose the app you want to delete. This will take you to the Google Play Store where you can tap ‘Uninstall’. Continue these steps for any apps you want to delete.
You can also simply long-press on apps and uninstall right from your phone but the above gives you a history snapshot to help you decide.
A password manager allows users to easily recall and enter their passwords for various websites and services, eliminating the need to remember individual passwords. The same tool can also generate strong, unique passwords for all of the user's accounts, which are then automatically stored in the user's password database, making it much more difficult for anyone to gain access to the accounts or their associated information.
Even if your phone is turned off, the location settings can still be activated by someone else who has access to your device. You should make sure that you have disabled location services on your phone or tablet in order to prevent someone from using it without your permission. If you don't know how to do this, consult with your device manufacturer's user manual or search online for step-by-step instructions. This is especially important if you share your device with other people, like a child who could accidentally enable the location setting.
Location services are a great way to keep track of where you are, but it's important to manage your location settings on your phone. This can help you avoid unnecessary data charges and ensure that your privacy isn't compromised.
Just remember to turn off location services when you're not using them, and don't share your location with anyone unless it's absolutely necessary.
How to turn off Location Services on Android: Open Settings -> Privacy -> Permission Manager -> Location
How to turn off Location Services on iPhone: Open Settings -> Privacy -> Location Services.

VPNs are a great way to protect your privacy online. They mask your true IP address, making it impossible for websites and advertisers to track your online activity.
In addition, VPNs can help protect you from many types of security threats, such as malware and phishing attacks. They also keep you safe from cybercriminals who try to steal your personal information.
VPNs are extremely useful, but there are a few things you should keep in mind. First, make sure the VPN provider you choose has a good reputation. Second, always use a secure connection when using a VPN. And third, remember that even the best VPN can't protect you from all threats. So be careful out there!
