Today I’ve been metaphorically running around, changing the listed email address on my online accounts to one of the new ProtonMail ones I made. I still have many yet to change, but it’s interesting the wildly different experiences I’ve had. Some scattered thoughts: Most sites want me... micro.jayeless.net micro.jayeless.net

@AlanGMarz Oh, for sure! I'm hoping this round of changes will last me basically forever. It's so much hassle I think I'd be looking for any reason not to do it again.

@jayeless I did that last year while also resetting passwords in pw manager. It was... a lot. Satisfying though! I work in ad tech and the commercial emails and receipts are most “valuable” to marketers 🙄 also don’t forget to purge the other info google has especially location!

@lauralo Thank you for the intel! I did think to clear my other Google data too, but only because Jill Duffy's guide suggested it, so that's also a good reminder.

@gtback I'm happy too! It's something I've been meaning to do for a long while.
