Hey guys, I'm currently building privasim where it helps students learn data privacy better through game-based learning. It's also a FOSS.
I've been trying to build it with my own funds every since but the fund is now short.
I did my research and most FOSS projects are experiencing this where the only income is through donation.
I tried to do that but it has not helped a bit.
So instead, I have devised a plan to benefit and give value to other FOSS projects and Non--profit groups.
@davidskg10 I have seen your website and I can only say one thing. Do not try to reccomend a vpn. Even if you are, use open source vpn's like proton vpn or Mullvad VPN. I would reccomend tor and orbot on android. Tor on every desktop as trust is a huge factor in these vpn's and we have seen it being abused a lot
@davidskg10 Also for encrypted storage. I have never heard of yokdata and cannot trust them as I have never seen that name in any privacy forum. I know data stoage clouds and even I have never heard them. Sadly if I were reccomending I couldn't do that for a storage selection that I have never heard of. If you want to see resources on privacy tools and advices. Use privacyguides.org as they are a well respected and privacy focused community and website.
@XxAlexXx Thank you! Surfshark has been my source of fund but there has indeed issues with them. I'll do the changes soon.
@davidskg10 Do note that transparency is a must and you should include that in your reccomendations as reccomendation is different than promotion and you should say that your being paid when your reccomending them. If the privacy community found that you reccomended them something while not telling that your also being paid. They will grill you. Trust me.
