I have read quite a lot but the jargon that is written is all new to me so please excuse my ignorance to possibly simple things.
I am after a email service that can be more secure than what I am using now Apple desk top computer using Safari to get to Gmail.)
I have never used Mozila or Firefox but it seems like they are recommended more than anything else.
Would that be correct?
To use it more securely against nosy agencies, am I correct that I best also download another program called "Tails" or "Whonix"?
I get that info from "How to use Tor the right way. Best practices" which I read on this site's "General News & Discussions"
When it comes to protecting data already in the computers Hard Drives memory from others knocking on the door and taking away for inspection, how do I protect it and could someone tell me where I can find some reading on what can be done to protect it or how to wipe the data totally, ensuring no previously written Pages and Numbers (Apples programs) can be accessed. Or is it a "start afresh" on a new computer?
The last question is with regards to the encrypting of data on a Memory Stick. Can someone direct me to where I can find ways to do that please. Oh yes.... also data that's on a separate Back-up Disc
I know its asking a lot but even a few pointers to help me on my way, would be greatly appreciated.
I'm not too flash when it comes to computer acronyms so would appreciate that being taken into consideration if someone has the time to answer.
With thanks and a special thanks to the Admin folks for the time that is spent on this ever increasingly important service to the public. Since Manning and Snowden, 'the cats now out of the bag' BIG TIME!
