Operating Systems

We publish configuration guides for the major operating systems, because you can generally improve the amount of data that is collected about you on any option, especially if you use privacy tools like our recommended web browsers in place of native tools where appropriate. However, some operating systems will be more privacy-respecting inherently, and it will be much harder to achieve an equivalent level of privacy on other choices.

If you're starting from scratch, we strongly recommend Linux on desktop and Android on mobile. If you already use something else and aren't interested in switching, we hope you'll find these guides useful.
