Facial recognition is an unacceptable invasion of people’s privacy - but more and more governments and companies across Europe are starting to use it.

We need 1million signatures to force the European Commission to listen. Join us and...

Google and Facebook are two of the most successful web companies because they have managed to convince everyone that their products do not come at any cost. Yet, their ad-based business model harms people & societies on so many levels, it must end now - and you can help. 😀💪

The youtuber "The hated one" currently dose videos on the Apple privacy bs which in my opinion should get far more attention specially in a somewhat privacy valuing space like Mastodon. If you think Apple cares even remotly about your privacy please just watch those two videos!

I'm a Berlin-based entrepreneur and am new to Mastodon.

My larger goal is to replace all creepy social services, such as:

• Twitter to Mastodon ✅
• GMail to ProtonMail
• Google Calendar to ProtonCalendar
• WhatsApp to Telegram
• Facebook to WT:Social
• Google Drive to ProtonDrive/NextCloud
• Google Chrome to Mozilla Firefox

Anyone has similar ambitions or achieved the same?

Going more private has a lot of old school attitude.

Don't use credit cards, use cash (of course no Apple Pay etc.). Don't use google maps, learn where you need to go and figure it out like you did a decade ago. Don't listen to streaming music, listen to music you downloaded.

What would you do if there was no big tech companies to hold your hand? Will you be lost?

There's now a WordPress proposal to treat Google FL*C as a security concern. WordPress powers 41% of the web and this move could help get rid of FL*C! 👀🤞
