There's lots of products I don't list on ThinkPrivacy for a long list of various reasons (or sometimes simply because less is more).

Nothing gets me as much hate and arguments as the decision not to list Brave.

There's a massive cult of usership there that cannot take an ounce of criticism over the browser.

PSA: If you do use #Brave browser, be aware it doesn't block #Facebook or #Twitter trackers

For Facebook tracking Brave white-lists

According to Brave developers, it's white-listed due to causing Facebook login to break if blocked.

I’m sure some purists will be upset about stickers being added to #Signal.

Anything that helps convince nontechnical friends and family to use Signal is a win in my book. Network effects for the win.

@switchingsoftware @rob For OpenPGP keys, I recommend to use WKD. When you own a domain, that's definitely the perfect way to go.

Otherwise you might want to reach out to @wiktor about his work on OpenPGP key based verification of accounts :)

With big shopping days ahead, it's a great time for you to install Privacy Badger to stop websites from installing third-party trackers. Even better: help your family install it! eff.org/deeplinks/2017/11/safe

Here is my proposal on how to reorganize and improve the codebase of the website:

Just wanted to share 2 Etsy shops that I found. These folks have some really impressive badges/stickers. I've not ordered from lukparts yet but, I did receive an order of metal badges from CadmiumPCTechnology and they're pretty high quality.
