> unless you put software on your computer to make that happen

Couldn't that be ... any software?

Well, you could start by not installing software that you know exfiltrates these data, like Microsoft Windows, or Adobe Flash...

Even in free software, do you audit everything you install? Information security is only as strong as the weakest link.

Why not start with software which isn't known to deliberately disseminate information about your computer. Sure, if you move the goalposts all day, you'll never score.

Registration is open for Startup School 2019. Classes start July 22nd.
