How can you reduce your reliance on Google? It’s more than just finding good Google alternatives.

These are the 6 easy steps you can take to shift at least part of your digital life away from a single company. You’ll be grateful that you did.

1. Ditch Google Chrome

While Google Chrome is arguably the fastest, most convenient internet browser on the market, it's also a huge data mining tool. When you use Chrome while logged into your Google account and searching on Google, you're handing Google a ton of extremely personal information about yourself on a silver platter...for free!

The best Google Chrome alternatives are things like Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox, Brave or even the Tor browser.

2. Don't Use Chrome's Password Manager

If ditching Chrome is just too difficult for you to consider, at the very least, try not to use the password save feature. Browser-based password managers are vulnerable because they allow anybody with access to your computer to also have access to your passwords.

It's much better to use a dedicated password manager such as BitWarden (free) or 1Password (premium).

3. Try a Different Email Client

I love Google Gmail and I still use it on a daily basis. However, I have a separate secure email address that I use for things like my banking, investments and other sensitive information. It's not about moving away from Gmail as much as it is making sure that you're not entrusting Gmail with every single bit of important information about yourself. The benefit here is not only protecting yourself from Google, but also protecting yourself from outside hackers.

The best Gmail alternatives include services like ProtonMail, Tutanota, or even free options like Outlook or Yahoo.

4. Move Away from Google Drive

Google makes it very easy to use Google Drive if you're already a Gmail user. It's free cloud storage space, so why not, right? But again, if we're trying to reduce our reliance on Google, it's good to diversify your data storage.

In this case, thankfully there are a multitude of Google Drive alternatives. These include services like Dropbox, OneDrive, Tresorit and many, many more.

5. Use Another Search Engine Besides Google

This is a hard one because Google Search is hands-down the best search engine out there. But when you consider how much data Google gathers based on your searches to create a profile of you, it's scary.

Some of the best Google search alternatives are options like Microsoft Bing (which gets better every year), Yahoo (which gets worse every year) or a private search engine like DuckDuckGo.

6. Stop (or Continue?) Watching YouTube?

This is more of a tongue-in-cheek joke here, since you're obviously watching and reading this on YouTube. Unfortunately, there aren't many good alternatives to YouTube right now that can match the breadth and quality of videos.

So if you're still looking to reduce your Google footprint, you can browse YouTube while logged out of your Google account or in an incognito window.
