Protecting your privacy online

Where privacy is very important to you, we recommend using your browser’s private browsing tools. These can anonymise requests and delete locally stored data once the browser window is closed.

There are also further tools or steps that can be taken. Although the providers we work with are ethical, there are reasons why certain vulnerable people, especially those who are opposing oppressive regimes, may need to be extremely careful even when working with the most ethical of websites. To this end, we suggest reading this article covering the various options for enhancing privacy.
