I wrote a blog post explaining why Privacy Browser will never monetize the default search engine.
I don't use snapchat, I hate twitter, can't stand reddit, imgur sucks, I got called an elitist because I hate facebook too, I think I saw a vine once, I don't use tiktok, I've never even tried instagram, the chans can go to hell, even youtube, which I spend dozens of hours on a week, I hate. they're all bad. corporate social media always sucks. im not sorry.
How do we make ironic articles about the loss of privacy on websites that use spy trackers a thing of the past?
The duality of tech journals / online magazines / bloggers that advocate for #privacy yet are using #google #analytics, pervasive ad tracking (offline and online), etc. on their websites is an issue that may demand our attention.
What might help?
+ A code of conduct?
+ More vocal online protest?
+ Sharable “I won’t read your post because...” graphics?
Any ideas are welcome...

"More than 4,000 Android apps that use Google's cloud-hosted Firebase databases are 'unknowingly' leaking sensitive information on their users, including their email addresses, usernames, passwords, phone numbers, full names, chat messages and location data."
We shouldn't discriminate between Linux distros, but rather celebrate that you are using Linux. In the end, we are all using the same kernel. #FossLove
A USB Data Blocker is a low-tech and low-cost way to protect the information on your mobile phone when you need to plug it into an untrusted port.
(Unless you own it, consider the port untrusted.)
Get one with a carrying case and a strap so that you are never without it. As a bonus, the device can actually help speed up charging.
