There is no such thing as privacy if you connect to the internet. Your ISP, as well as and especially the carrier ("backbone infrasture", ie ATT in the US for the most part) handles every jot and tittle of data you send out and receive. And ATT et al might as well be considered departments of the Executive Branch of government.

Even Tor, VPNs, proxies, etc, are useless against anything better than some script kiddie hacker wannabe in his mom's basement. Think about it, whatever you eventually connect to has to know how to get data back to YOU (your device). The ISP has to find your target, and pipe it back to you. The carrier infrastructure has to do the same. There's a plain as day trail from you to everywhere you go and right back. Otherwise, you wouldn't be able to communicate at all with another PC or other device unless it's direct hardwired LAN or direct WiFi LAN.

Tor for privacy/anonymity? Developed by DARPA and the US Navy.

VPNs and proxy servers? Like the NSA, CIA, DOD, Chinese PLA, Russian FSB, British MI6 and even small time cyber criminals can't and don't set up VPNs and proxies so they can skim and scan all traffic that goes through them? Same with Tor exit nodes? Blockchain server hosts and algorithms?

If a person wants privacy, they have to isolate from all outside contact. Privacy is made by opaque walls (nothing gets in or out).

Re: Better search engine and email options

What I want to know is...

... how is pinging an IP near instantaneous, worldwide, with almost zero latency? How does pinging an IP even make sense, logically?

Things aren't operating the way we're told they operate...

mixing Google search with the alternatives

An interesting discussion.

Quora
Since DuckDuckGo is partnered with Yandex, should I worry about the neutrality of search results?
https://www.quora.com/Since-DuckDuck...search-results

Reddit
https://www.reddit.com/r/antigoogle/...earch_engines/

12Bytes.org
Alternative Search Engines That Respect Your Privacy
https://12bytes.org/articles/tech/al...t-your-privacy

Yippy did seem to handle a “quote marks” search better than epicsearch and Startpage. On a very quick test.

And I plan a little more study when back in Dutchess County, NY from the Fort Lauderdale area in a couple of days.

We understand that Facebook and Google are trying to down-place issues like what they consider the wrong approach to vaccinations and Sandy Hook and pervert issues and much more. (So you learn to custom-tailor searches to force what, e.g. Big Pharma and cultural lefties and the MSM do not like higher up.)

Thus, alternative engines might help on more than privacy. Just like rt.com might handle news not on CNN, MSNBC etc all .. or even Fox .. or even OAN. Yet RT might have its own caveat emptor spin,

Remember, on researching specific issues (I have had plethoras of searches including “Johannine Comma”. “1 John 5:7” and “Sinaiticus”) you always have to be aware that any search that does not include Google may lose a major element of comprehensiveness.

Re: Better search engine and email options

I rarely use my e mail now. I have had Hotmail.com for years and use to love it. Now it is so complicated it's ridiculous. Is there a free service that is very simple and easy? Not full of clutter and unnecessary things?
