    Exclamation DuckDuckGone

    Seemingly DuckDuckGo browser allows MS to track your IP address, especially when using Bing or LinkedIn.
    It is a browser restriction but not their main search engine.

    I actually use Vivaldi or Tor with DDG search with ad blocking (uBlock (Origin), Pi-hole (& Raspberry Pi)).
    I guess I could use Opera VPN with DDG searching.

    Reckon, I'll have to type alternate letters in separate browsers from now on.

    as an aside no doubt you also have the geolocation turned off on your mobile ...

    VPN is the way to go I think, but like most thing you get what you pay for

    I don't know why they call it common sense, there's rarely that much around when you need it....

    It's amazing the amount of information apps can create and share/sell. I have almost everything turned off on my phone and where not set for when in use only. And I close each app manually after use. Still and all.

    Never give up. You will never fail, but you may find a lot of ways that don't work.
