10 Tips For Saving Time & Being Secure On Internet

Excited? Cause I am :)
  1. One primary reason we can’t get over from our phones is that we receive timely notifications from unnecessary apps that we don’t even care about. So, I would recommend uninstalling all the most unused apps from your phone. Also, the genuine apps that are helpful for you, I would say that turning off notifications would prevent you from getting distracted.
  2. Realize that your eyes are very important to you! So, the people having glasses make sure you have up to date lenses. Also, an anti-glare screen is a must(mostly comes built-in nowadays in laptops). The 20–20 rule which I follow is relaxing my eyes after every 20 minutes of screen time. One personal habit which I follow is to get up from my chair and have water. This way my eyes get rest and the water requirement is also fulfilled!
  3. Think twice before you give permissions to the apps they request for, be it Camera access, microphone access or contacts access. Analyze which app needs which permissions. For example, a Todo App does not require any permission as such, so straight away deny the permissions to it the first time it asks you. One such Todo App which I use is Colornote.
  4. Emails & Phone numbers: Generally every website wants to gather your email or phone number when you land over their home page. So, do not give away your crucial information anywhere on the internet. I would also like to suggest a website that gives you temporary emails for 10 minutes which you can use to surpass OTP verification. One such website is https://10minutemail.com/. Even I used this hashed email to run my Spotify account for 3 months now!
  5. Use alternate search engines like Qwant(https://www.qwant.com/), Duck Duck Go(https://duckduckgo.com/) rather than Google. These alternate Search Engines have stricter data privacy regulations and are way safer than Google.
  6. Have you also wasted time on YouTube falling in the trap of recommendations? Then try to search the content you are looking for on YouTube, you may also turn off recommendations in your settings.
