I’ve talked a lot about Privacy.com lately, but that’s because I think it’s such a good service. I’ve been using it for about two years. When you link your bank account to the app, you can generate unlimited virtual cards to use. You won’t have to worry about your credit card number getting leaked in a data breach anymore. When you create a card there are several configurations to use. You can create a one-time use burner card. You can lock a card to a specific merchant, and it can’t be used anywhere else. You can pause or cancel cards at any time. You can set a maximum charge for cards as well. Privacy.com is free too, because the company makes money from merchants just like traditional debit/credit cards.
We’ve seen data breaches happening left and right lately, and someone should tell Silicon Valley that getting hacked isn’t a competition.

This protocol was deemed by the US Government to be secure enough to guard its classified information. App Store: KeepSolid – Free (Offers In-App Purchases)
Startpage is a private search engine that doesn’t track you or store data about you. The company recently redesigned the website and added a couple of new features. One of them is called Anonymous View.
Clicking search results means leaving the protection of Startpage.com. This could lead to a barrage of cookies being installed on your device. That’s why we developed the “Anonymous View” feature. With “Anonymous View” you can visit search results in full privacy, and keep on browsing: They’ll never know you were there. You’ll find the feature next to every search result.
If you’re looking for an alternative search engine, especially a private one, check out Startpage.
