Data jurisdiction statement(what is this?):
I'm currently living in Canada, my website is hosted by on a vps (located in Toronto, Canada) I pay for by Cloudways (affiliate link), on a server owned by DigitalOcean (which is US based). Cloudflare is protecting this site (which is US based). Email is hosted by Runbox in Norway. I backup everything to Backblaze (US as well). If you don't wish for our conversation to be logged (or backed up to Backblaze) email me asking for my XMPP (I have OTR).

Security vs Convenience

Do you want to be able to open a website and be logged in, or have to log in each time you open a site? Want to have every site you visit track you, or have nobody track you? These are the two things to look into when you want security or convenience.

If I go to facebook right now then I will have to login, and enter my two-factor code. It may take me more time (including removing my cookies after I visit the site) but I know facebook isn't tracking me. Now I'm set to be logged in on apps like facebook on my phone (not using the since it is known to listen to you, take and scan pictures, track your location and many more things) but I know that it is convenient.

So think about it the next time a website says remember me.
