Email is a necessary evil that is required in this world. Email is inherently insecure, which means your email provider can read any of your messages. These providers offer encryption, anonymity and security.
This provides multiple aliases for your emails, so you do not have to reveal your true email address. This is extremely useful especially if you are worried about your email being leaked.
Your messages must be secure as they reveal a lot about you. Choosing an encrypted messenger will prevent any unauthorized users from reading any of your messages.
Your operating system is the most important part, if it is insecure then you can assume any activities done are also compromised.
Password managers are a great way to both securely and remember all of your passwords. Your passwords are saved in an encrypted database, which you only need to remember 1 password while generating secure passwords for all of your accounts.
Your search engine knows a lot about you. This information is often times sold to 3rd parties and given away to government agencies. They often show biased search results. Choose a better one here.
