Second, try to think of all the sites you signed up for but later abandoned. Go back and actively delete your account.

Third, consider disinformation. Whenever a site wants personal data, give fake information. If your information gets hacked, doxed or exposed, your real information won't be used.

Fourth, search through your photos looking for images of hands and fingers and make sure no usable fingerprints exist.

Fifth, don't get into heated arguments with trolls, haters or political extremists online.
