The Privacy Newsletter
#004 - September 2021
Privacy news that you shouldn’t miss. Short, sweet, and to the point.
Data brokers make sure to collect as much info about you as possible. Luckily some services keep your name and identity from the internet. Our favorite app in this issue is Popple, don't forget to stay in touch with your real friends. If you happen to find good content we should add in the next issue, please email us.
