More and more reviews are being published about our email service - and since a couple of months about our calendar as well. 😎 It feels good to know that the data is safe in Tutanota: tutanota.com/blog/posts/tutano

@danarel I would like to bring to your attention a few errors on your site (thinkprivacy.io/). First of all, Telegram does provide a transparency report (t.me/transparency) and it is mostly open source. I would also like to mention that Wickr has only only released the source code for its cryptographic protocol as far as I know. I would also like to recommend LBRY as another alternative to Youtube. I am a huge fan of your work and I hope it keeps improving! 😁

Ditching the Google Play Store is not as difficult as you think. Did you know that there are more ways to get many popular apps on your phone besides via the Play Store? Here are some examples:

signal.org/android/apk/
whatsapp.com/android/

You can also get apps like Tutanota, Bitwarden, Telegram and the entire Librem One suite through F-droid (an alternative app store). Try it out: f-droid.org/.

The is slowly making its way to becoming one of the best privacy-friendly alternatives to the current smartphone duopoly! However, if you can't stay without apps like and , just get on a compatible phone.

With many improvements in wireless networks yet to come, I still feel that wired networks are superior. There is less interference while being more reliable. Not to mention, all this radiation is probably not good for us as well.

Thanks @gnome for the great work you do for everyone as we all benefit. By taking action on behalf of the opensource ecosystem against patent trolls it helps make the world a better place for all (maybe not the trolls though). Remember because of @purism and GNOME we finally have a great mobile phone UI. Shout out to KDE, UBUNTU touch, Pine64 and others helping linux on mobile become a safe alternative reality for all!

Firefox appears to be pushing the limits for their users' privacy protection. I personally use the Brave Browser due to their integration with known privacy extensions and TOR. Which browser do you prefer?
