Very helpful advice for increasing your cybersecurity and protecting your privacy

I discovered this podcast online a few months ago. Thanks to Carey Parker's advice on how to improve cybersecurity and protect user privacy, I have added a VPN service, I use a password manager, and I am using an encrypted email service. I'm steadily extracting myself from Google's prying eyes, as I have been using DuckDuckGo for 6 months or so. I've also ditched Chrome for Firefox with Carey's recommended add-ons (Privacy Badger, HTTPS Everywhere, U-block Origin, DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials, and Decentraleyes). I also ditched Comcast's router and bought my own. Next on the list is backing everything up with an online backup service. There's lots to be done, but Carey helps you along the way with simple advice that non-techies can understand and apply. His book Firewalls Don't Stop Dragons is another valuable resource to use in combination with this podcast. Thanks for helping us all, Carey! I feel like I'm well on the path to improved cybersecurity and privacy.
