[New Release] Bonus Activities for the Data Detox Kit

To round off the year, we've developed three new themes in the Data Detox Kit to help people to reduce that data they leave behind in 2019.

The first, Who's the Third Wheel in Your Dating Life?, gives handy tips on how to be more private when using online dating platforms like Tindr, Happn and OkCupid.

The second, Smartphones Call for Smart Habits, looks into the seductive nature of smartphones and gives tips on how to spend less time on them. Did you know the average person checks their phone 150 times per day? If we did anything else that often, we'd probably call a doctor.

And the third activity, [[Alexa: A User's Guide](https://datadetox.myshadow.org/en/bonus/iot), looks at the friendly voice assistant behind Amazon's Echo speaker. Voice assistants like her are already in 100 million homes, and this number is expected to double by the end of 2020. So what can you do to reduce the amount of data you hand over to her?


The Data Detox Kit is an eight day step-by-step guide on how to reduce your data traces online. The online version is available in five languages: English, German, Spanish, French and Portuguese.
