More privacy when surfing | c’t uplink 44.1
The GDPR should bring more data protection, but data collection and tracking continue happily. The cookie banners and consent systems get on the nerves of many users instead of ensuring more privacy on the internet.

In addition, data protection authorities in different countries work on enforcement with different zeal.

But as a user you are not helpless. On the one hand, the worst forms of data tapping are no longer permitted, on the other hand there are various technical aids to prevent data leakage. And how do the tools of Internet companies, such as Google VPN and Apple Private Relay, fit into this?
