Just like cops are required to say "anything you say can be used against you in the court of law", any communication platform without end-to-end encryption should permanently display a similar warning: "all information collected about you on this platform can be used against you by criminals and law enforcement."

This DuckDuckGo audit by @purism is a sobering read:

Remember that DuckDuckGo is venture capital-funded which means that they must exit—either become a publicly-traded multi-billion-dollar company (sell to the public) or sell to one of the incumbents.

(What we need is a publicly-funded but independently run search engine. The EU could create such a thing… if they didn’t have they heads firmly entrenched up Silicon Valley’s bumhole.)
