One Tip A Day Tech Blog third anniversary. The top 10 most viewed all-time posts

I've started this blog in 2013 and three years have already gone.

This time frame has been very important for IT in general and also for my personal and professional life.

Since I started this blog, Windows has issued two operating systems (Windows 8.1 and Windows 10) and Apple has released three new OS X versions (Mavericks, Yosemite and El Capitan).

I've delved through a lot of topics in these three years and I feel to have grown a lot both as an IT professional and as a blogger, but I always strive to improve.

I push myself hard and that's why I don't write a post if I don't believe in it.

I'm my first censor (sadly) and I hate repeating myself.

For a while I even thought of pulling the plug, because I'm too swamped with school, work and a bunch of side projects, but I decided to continue on.

To celebrate the third anniversary of One Tip A Day Tech Blog, here is a list of my most successful posts (pageviews are displayed as of today's date):

Online privacy and anonymity are dead. Get over it!

Last updated: 1/9/2017

The problem 

After Edward Snowden's revelations about the NSA's indiscriminate snooping activities on any U.S.-based individual, a paranoid dread has started spreading around.

Most people started feeling threatened and devoid of their rights, afraid of something they contributed to create by handing over their lives to social media and big data collectors (government agencies included).

For this reason, an increasing number of blogs and websites have come up with tutorials about online anonymity and privacy, most of which talk about something they have no clue about and move from wrong arguments.

Though this is an overly technical problem, I'll try to keep my explanation simple, like I spoke to a fifth grader.
