Whenever some app or service claims to respect your #privacy, check for two things:

1. Is it open-source on both client and server (if applicable) ?
2. Is the service itself decentralized in some way (federated, allows self-hosting etc.) ?

Now evaluate everything you use - iPhones, WhatsApp, Telegram, Signal, Gmail etc. using this checklist.

Try to find and use software/services which satisfy both of the above conditions.

Wrt. to websites, you can also see (with extensions such as Privacy Badger or uMatrix) how much 3rd party JS and cookies the website uses. Those that use a lot clearly don't care about your privacy.
