Use VPN its pretty important.
- iPredator (Sweden)
- Mullvad (Sweden)
- ProtonVPN (Switzerland)
- ExpressVPN (British Virgin Islands)
- NordVPN (Panama) - LQ but adding it
Also use Tauils to use your own proxy/vpn setup using linux scripts and VPS
- Always use cryptos. Don’t use PayPal.
Always get WHOIS privacy even if you’ll have to pay extra for it
Use a sandbox / RDP to test any program and always scan (can use virus total) and keep your system clean of malware. Malware bytes is a must and keys are not that expensive
It never hurt to use Virus total to scan any programs etc for all kinds of stuff people jack in them.
