For a long time I've used tracker blocking apps in my browser like Ghostery, Adblock, etc.. The internet is a much worse place without them...

I use an ad blocker everywhere except here. While I am here I regularly click on adverts I have no interest in simply to worsen their S/N ratio.

Me, too. And I got rid of all Android phones and switched to Iphones. No Facebook app. Still have to use Whatsapp, but you can restrict its access at least.

The problem is also in what cases does the government access these accounts. People don't want their data to be accessed by the government, but they also want the government to catch criminals, e.g. child molesters...
