Here are a few things I do to protect my privacy.
- Get a
from the USPS, and use that address for my contact
info anytime I have to give an address but don't need anything
delivered. E.g., nonprofits, government agencies, insurance companies, etc.
- Set up a second
account to be used exclusively by companies,
e.g., amazon, netflix, random ecommerce sites, government agencies,
etc. I only give out my "real" email address to friends and family.
- Set up a
number that does not ring my phone,
but which instead has messages transcribed and emailed to my 2nd
