Maybe you are tired of all the digital ads that come your way every day whether it is at your work email or through your social network sites.
Search for your name on the internet, and you will be surprised to see how easy you are to find.
Computer IP addresses can be tracked, and this is where your problems start. Cell phones, credit card
purchases, travel check-ins and even just a toll booth can trace you. Even individuals can simply search
for your digital footprint and track where you are.
If you truly want to disappear and start a new life, you are going to have to be prepared to go at it alone.
Whether on the run or just settling down to a less digital life, there are a few things you need to do.
LOSE YOUR CELL PHONE
A cell phone is a digital bull’s eye that allows people to easily triangulate your position based on your
cell signal. You don’t even need to make a call to be tracked due to their built-in GPS.
This doesn’t mean you have to go entirely without a cell phone.
Buy an old feature phone and use the prepaid calling card with dnd service activated.
USE GIFT CARDS FOR PURCHASES
Use Amazon pay balance or Paytm. The transactions with these cards are between retailers and credit card companies and your personal details aren’t required, and nothing will show up in a statement.
DON’T BE SOCIAL
You will definitely have to give up on Facebook and Twitter. It is best just to walk away if you can. If
not, then you will need to create anonymous accounts from a remote location. You should definitely not
a friend or follow anyone you actually know.
ERASE INFO ASSOCIATED WITH PICTURES
If you are in the habit of sending or posting digital pictures, you should at the very least remove the
EXIF data that comes with the image file. This information can include the make of the camera, date and
time the picture was taken and in the case of some modern cameras; geographical location information.
HIDE YOUR IP ADDRESS
A proxy server can be helpful. Tor Browser help prevent people from seeing you by re routing your web page requests through multiple routers on the internet. And you can use multiple vpn services over the internet.

signed up for a long time ago, but since forgotten about. For example, a MySpace account you opened
when it was first popular; but have since stopped using due to your more active Facebook account.
