If you are interested in some more internet privacy and without being bothered with ads while browsing the internet, then may I suggest using some sort of a VPN service plus DuckDuckGo.com as your search engine along with setting up an email account with protonmail.com and Signal for any kind of texting. Go check into them. I've been using them for years. I use gmail for my work only and had that account ever since Google launched over twenty years ago and that's it. I have no other social media accounts other than right here with 'TOO' and I do have an YouTube account to share my 'WildlifeOhio' videos.
I use duckduck go on my phone also.
