Briar has been removed from Google Play 🤦 https://briarproject.org/news/2022-briar-removed-from-google-play/
@briar great timing, taking in account that at least some people started promoting it for no internet situation in Ukraine...
@firstname.lastname@example.org can't launch briar on my Huawei. Briar wants me to allow some powersettings, when I click there it just crashes and tells me that it's not my fault... Next launch the account creation starts anew. Do you mind if I ask if there's any workaround for this?
@briar probably incompetence on Google's part, but still very harmful, espn considering the timing. Hope they sort this out soon.
@a1ba Ask Tusky. Same thing with account credentials. One must think they do not even understand what they test. Shall I top it? Ask the author of Catima, an app that does not even request the Internet permission. Guess what – or read on: https://sylviavanos.nl/blog/2021/12/24/google_play_hell.html @briar @wolf480pl
@briar interesting, how many here think it could only be a mistake. And yet I am thinking, no, no mistake, it's simply cause google is evil.
@briar I'm wondering why Google didn't decided to remove all that malware, spyware, adware and shit games from Google Playstore, insted they decided to remove a fully free/libre, and completely safe app, especially nowadays when Ukrainian people need it so much? What kind of profit they receive because of removing Briar?
February 28 2022 Update (February 28, 13:20 UTC): Briar is available on Google Play again. Briar was briefly removed from Google Play because we didn’t provide Google’s review team with a username and password for testing the app. We provided Google with a username and password for testing and the app is now available again.
