Corporations and governments use a variety of de-anonymization techniques to identify and profile users.

All aspects of our personal lives are now consolidated online (banking, medical, academic, remote work, shopping, dating, messaging, social media, news etc). This can reveal a lot of personal information like who you talk to, what you say, your medical conditions, your political opinions and so on.

In this day and age it's impossible to function in society without having some sort of online presence. So what can we do to minimize this data collection and maintain our privacy against mass surveillance efforts?
