About my privacy, I feel I need to be proactive and ask:
- What can go wrong? Are you trading convenience that you don't really need for a privacy level that you need? Or you have enough information to move forward? If you are doing an intervention to protect your privacy, what does it protect you from? Did other such interventions fail or led to inconvenience?
- What's the likelihood?
- How bad would that be?
Last but not least, another myth is that privacy and security are the same thing. In order to protect your privacy, first you need to protect your security. In my case a password manager like 1password helped me:
- generate (14 or more number, characters and symbols), store, sync between devices and share secrets like passwords with my family
- find which of my services (especially email providers and cloud providers) support 2 factor authentication and add it instead of authy or sms for faster copy paste
- put tags on thing like local services so that I focus on the rest by searching for
