Use secure email services when you can. Use a dummy email address when emailing people you do not trust and make sure that that dummy email is not attached to any of your real information (use a fake name, age, etc). You can also set up emails to reroute, so that you can receive them at your normal address – just make sure that you reply from the dummy account.
This is not particularly secure against government agencies but it is fairly secure against hackers. There are also free, disposable, temporary email services, such as Guerilla Mail, that allow users to create randomly generated accounts that get automatically deleted once the user ends their browser session, or after a time limit.
ProtonMail and Tutanota are both excellent options.
Micro$oft is one of the greediest, cuckold corporations out there, and should be avoided and boycotted at all cost. Avoid purchasing anything from them, and avoid using any technology that uses their software or operating system. Windows is also notoriously unsafe, given most viruses are designed to infect Windows operating systems, since they make up the majority of personal computers.
Microsoft provides an entry key for the police which bypasses all Windows password encryption.
Linux is generally considered to be one of the most secure operating systems, it has a slight learning curve but soon becomes second nature. Linux is probably the best thing you can use when it comes to securing online privacy and computer protection. Linux Mint is the best place to begin.
