Walk Away from Big Tech

About Us

People for Digital Freedom



We are a group of internet professionals working with Freedom lovers to help people reduce their reliance on Big Tech and discover the world of Digital Freedom.



G’day, I’m The Virtual Webmaster and I registered the walkawayfrombigtech.com domain back in late 2020 because I could see Big Tech acting in increasingly nefarious ways. I originally planned to make my own how-to type guides for online privacy and Big Tech alternatives, but I realised that the problem was not a lack of information.

The problem is not a lack of good alternatives or information on how to protect your online privacy. There is already too much information out there already but the problem is most people have no way to filter the good from the bad and then determine what is suitable for their needs.

I saw more and more people waking up and wanting to reclaim their online freedom, but the biggest obstacle for most people is they don’t even know where to start.

I understood the obstacles stopping most people but I also realised that something even more important was missing. People need a simple framework and methodology to follow, or to put it in simple English; A way to know how to navigate to the right information, find alternatives best suited to their needs, and then have a process to follow to safely implement them.

The 10 Steps to Escape the Big Tech digital prison provides that missing framework and methodology and has been designed for everyone regardless of their level of technical understanding.


Online Privacy vs. Digital Freedom

When I created Walk Away from Big Tech my focus was online privacy but I soon realised that this focus was too narrow and that we can never obtain privacy until we have Digital Freedom.

Ten Steps to Escape the Big Tech digital prison is much more than just an escape plan. Each step focuses on an aspect of our digital lives and how

Here are some of the major components of our 10 Steps course:

  • Paradigm shift – change the way you think about privacy
  • Compartmentalisation – introduce a strategy to help you take control of their digital lives
  • Digital life audit – help people to locate and secure their information
  • Isolate Big Tech – put Big Tech into a virtual digital prison on your device and separate it from the rest of your digital life.
  • Digital Freedom Tube – provides you with a gateway to the alternative Internet
  • Digital Freedom Launchpad – A browser home page to keep you focused and moving forward
