Consider using a subaddress just for mining, to prevent your address being linked to different services.
[Consider using Tor to connect to the pool](https://xmrig.com/docs/miner/tor) (or to a hidden service pool like HashVault, RespectXMR and MoneroOcean). This hides mining activity from your ISP, and prevents the pool from knowing who you are.
Download Miner
Ubuntu Linux
The XMRig developer provides pre-built binaries for Ubuntu Bionic (18.04) and Focal (20.04). They may work on other Ubuntu versions, and on other distributions, but this is not guaranteed.
Scroll down to 'Assets' until you see the correct version for your system. Download this file, extract the archive somewhere memorable, like your desktop.
Other distributions and operative systems
Binaries are available for multiple distributions and operative systems, but you can also build the miner by yourself. Take a loot at [XMrig's docs](https://xmrig.com/docs/miner)
