* Use a VPN or Tor. Note that using a VPN **does not automatically make your connection private**; you need to ensure that your VPN provider does not log your traffic and change your IP address frequently, and even then absolute anonymity is not guaranteed. The vast majority of commerical VPN services use deceptive marketing, and do not enhance your privacy whatsoever. Tor is a much more reliable option, with the only major downside being that Tor is much slower than traditional VPN services. Unlike commerical VPN offerings, Tor is run by a 501(c)(3) nonprofit group aiming to protect human rights amongst prosecuted groups.
* Use secure email. Do not use a web email client; instead, download an open source client to your device, and ensure that your client is connecting to servers securely via IMAPS and SMTPS (rather than unencrypted IMAP or SMTP). Use OpenPGP encryption to provide further protection. If you need an email address for an online account you don't care about, use a disposable email service such as Guerilla Mail.
* Do not use biometrics. Face recognition and fingerprint scanning is convenient, but not good for security. Most commerical face recognition devices can be defeated very easily.
-* Full disk encryption should be used if your device contains information that you would not want someone to get hold off in the event that your device was stolen.

* Ensure your camera app does not save location tags. As an extra precaution, strip EXIF metadata from any images before you upload them to the internet.
