Here are my recommended greycoding services. I’ve favored services don’t require deep technical knowledge.
Adguard is the most sophisticated ad-blocker available. You can use it on all devices.
For reliable VPN check out ProtonVPN.
ProtonMail is a good encrypted email provider. Combine it with SimpleLogin (for email aliases).
Bitwarden is an open source cloud for passwords and secure notes.
Sync is a full encrypted cloud provider — however the apps are not as fully featured as pCloud. This is inevitable to some extent, since everything is encrypted.
Privacy.Com is a service that allows you to make online payment using virtual cards instead of your physical payment card information. A similar service is Europe is Revolut Premium.
MediaHuman YouTube Downloader is a good video downloading app.
Newsdemon is a good Usenet provider. You can use it with NZB.SU (index) and SabNZBd (downloader). Once your media is downloaded you can use Plex as a media manager.
1337x.to is a good torrent index.
Mastodon is a twitter replacement that is community owned and ad-free.
