Qubes is a Linux Operating System based around the concept of Virtual Machines (like multiple computers you can switch between) making full use of compartmentalisation.

Compartmentalisation allows you to take control of your digital life and is what the 10 Steps to Escape the Digital Prison is also based around.

Most people are not ready to switch to an Operating System like Qubes, but for those interested this video will give you a glimpse at what using and managing the Qubes privacy operating system is like.

Options to setup your own private email

If you need private email you have two options.  You can either use one of the private email services or set up your own private service.

Privacy Browser Strategy

Great browser update from Techlore.

The browser strategy recommend is similar to what we recommend with one difference.

Techlore has:

  • Tor for anonymity
  • Mullvad for additional privacy
  • Brave general use

We recommend an additional browser specifically for Big Tech (and Big Brother). This can be any of the Big Tech browser (what most people are already using).
