STEP 15 - LEt's Protect our data more

Step 15 of the Global Walkout is to delete internet browsers like Chrome, Safari, Firefox, edge and duckduckgo…and start exclusively using BRAVE.

A little about BRAVE and how to make the switch.

The internet is a sea of ads, hackers, and echo chambers. Big Tech makes huge profits off our data and tries to tell us what’s true and what’s not. Brave is fighting back.

Brave is on a mission to protect your privacy online. We make a suite of internet privacy tools—including our browser and search engine—that shield you from the ads, trackers, and other creepy stuff trying to follow you across the web.

50 million people have already switched to Brave for a faster, more private web. Hundreds of thousands more sign up every day. It only takes 60 seconds to switch.

Think switching is a hassle? It’s not. With Brave, you can easily import bookmarks, extensions, and even saved passwords from your old browser. It’s just one click in onboarding. Or download and import later.

10 Reasons Why Brave Browser Is Becoming So Popular

You might be thinking…who cares which internet browser I use, what difference does it make?

Well, did you know that data is one of the most lucrative products in the world? The less data big tech companies have, the harder it is for them to track our spending habits, movements, activities and so forth. They already have so much data on us, why don’t we start scaling it back!

There will be more steps like this coming up. Data protection and privacy is a huge topic.

We have nothing to hide…we are not criminals! However, we value our privacy. We want to keep our data to ourselves rather than allow big tech to barter and trade with it.

For example;

When you use the web, you send data about your activity and location back to Google and other sites. Aside from cookies, Chrome tracks you through several identifiers.

These include:

  • IP address
  • Log-in information
  • Browser user agents and more

 

Some websites use cookies and other third-party tracker data like web beacons and pixel tags together with your online user accounts for tracking purposes. Websites claim to track your internet activities to improve your browsing experience. However, advertisers may also use the data to learn your habits and preferences to determine which ads they show to you.

I’m not sure how you feel about this, but if I want to buy something, I’ll search for it. I don’t want to be push-marketed too!

So, let’s take this easy step together…and we’ll see you for step 16 next week.
