Many services have been found logging user data, and it's hard to know which ones actually care about your privacy.

There's no question that in 2018 online private data can be easily intercepted by hackers. Case in point, the hacking group that recently hit Atlanta with a massive ransomware attack and is now threatening to wipe its government data clean, lest they pay a hefty sum.

To this end, one of the simplest approaches is to always surf with the protection of a VPN, or virtual private network.
