I use technology in a relatively private manor, and on top of that, I use mostly open source software (I know this isn’t directly beneficial to privacy, but I like the freedom. I use only proprietary banking apps I need for a secure experience, and ofc the websites of banking services, carrier services, government services - the stuff you need to use).
But, what about shopping online? We don’t exactly have an alternative to something like Amazon? And it’s not like other e-commerce sites will respect your privacy to much higher degree?
So, what is the best solution to this? As far as I understand, the only truly private way of using a site like Amazon, would be to use a VPN or Tor, a private payment service, AND, crucially, a PO box?
This is obviously not a very convenient or accessible solution. Are there any other options, or recommendations, that would improve privacy when shopping online?
