Here are my recommended greycoding services. I’ve favored services that don’t require deep technical knowledge.
Adguard is the most sophisticated ad-blocker available. You can use it on all devices.
For a reliable VPN check out ProtonVPN.
Bitwarden is an open-source cloud for passwords and secure notes.
Sync is a fully encrypted cloud provider — however, the apps are not as fully featured as pCloud. This is inevitable to some extent since everything is encrypted.
MediaHuman YouTube Downloader is a good video downloading app.
1337x.to is a good torrent index.
Mastodon is a Twitter replacement that is community-owned and ad-free.
