Tracking systems are being rolled out in countries around the world. It’s no secret these will get more draconian as time goes on. To avoid being targeted and profiled by this invasive spyware, contact tracing, here are some suggestions:
(1) Use VPN
Use a VPN while connecting to internet to hide your IP from trackers. I have been using WINDSCRIBE. It’s free. You can get 10G of free bandwidth/month every free account you sign up for by email. Create as many free accounts as you need to satisfy your bandwidth requirements per month.
(2) Make your email anonymous. Use protonmail, tutanota or mallfence (all are free, provide much better security and privacy than gmail, yahoo or outlook). If you insist on signing up for free email services like gmail, yahoo, hotmail, outlook, etc, don’t give any personal info that can link you to your real identity. For ex, no recovery phone#, credit card, date of birth, etc. Only add a recovery email, which is in turn, anonymous (ex, an email that you only use for signs up and has no ties to your personal data.)
For example, if you are using yahoo, use this system to remove a recovery email, if you need to:

It’s important to remain anonymous otherwise it’s easy to become a target for these oppressive contact tracing algorithms. Also everything you type in your emails and all your data is used by big tech to create a social credit score for you, which is definitely not in your interest.
(3) Ditch your cell phone.
If you are not ready to do this, here are some partial solutions:
Don’t take your phone everywhere you go. Use it only at home, or get a Faraday cage or pouch to store it in which will block signals from cell towers when you are out and about and only use it in emergencies. Everything is tracked by IOS & Android and every mobile device. Data is then fed to gov’t/corporate/intelligence agency contact tracing services. You might get a knock on the door someday or a request for a mandatory test/vaccine.
Think that by turning your phone off you will be immune? Check this out:

Ever notice that you might mention feeding the neighbour’s cat in a text and get a youtube ad the next day about Purina Chow? You can be sure that Google & Apple are tracking every text or email you send and who’s ever name, time or meetup info is those msgs. This is bad because by the same method can be used to contact trace you. Also, tracing algorithms will be using bluetooth to check proximity with other cell users.
The dangers of having a cell phone are not to be underestimated. Landlines are also not immune. Voice data is stored on servers and analyzed by AI algorithms that pick off names and meet times. You could be easily flagged as a ‘possibly infected’ person and forced to take a test, and/or taken to a quarantine. I would not want to be forced to take a fake PCR that yields tons of false positives then carted off to some detention centre according to the decree of some health-authority bureaucrat who’s been bought off by Bill Gates Big Pharma engine.
(4) Use peer-to-peer apps like Discord to communicate. Preferably on a laptop. Cell phones, facebook, googlemeets, zoom, skype are among the most invasive forms of spyware.
To do safer peer to peer calls, better to create private groups of friends using VOIP. If you do sign up to systems like SLACK, DISCORD or SKYPE, use anonymous emails that can’t be traced back to you. Voice audio can, of course, be recorded on servers and scanned by algorithms, but if they can’t tie the voice to you (as they can with personal cell phones paid by credit card), you will be safer. Avoid using video share on these platforms, as facial recognition systems can identify you and defeat the purpose of using an anonymous email.
(5) Consider boycotting MS/Apple/Google Operating systems & products. This helps avoid tracking spyware. There are free plug and play versions of Linux–like Ubuntu.
You can install Linux on your PC alongside win10, or install it on a standalone machine. You can download free software for linux: Libre-Office and Brave or Opera browsers. Opera comes with a free VPN to hide your IP address so web sites can’t track you. You can turn on the VPN in Opera here. Brave browser supports youtube ad blocking. Use other search engines like duckduckgo.com instead of google search (although alternate search engines are not perfect, as all search engines are becoming biased and gamed, it’s better than using google (which is the worst of them all in terms of violating privacy/being tracked/and returning biased search results). Boycott FB, as it’s a serious social credit score gatherer and risk to your online identity. Gather up your friends’ email addresses and stop using facebook. Don’t post anything on FB. Use mapquest.com instead of google maps. Use bitchute.com, odysee, archive.org, and other alternate video websites wherever possible instead of youtube. Many content providers post synonymously on the alternate websites. If you use youtube make sure you log in with an anonymous email (or don’t log in at all) and run under a VPN (Windscribe/Opera or otherwise), so they can’t track your location.
(6) De-google your phone. If you insist on using a phone,
