Hey Foss friends this still out there. We’re yet dealing with some of the social shit various verse pens. Hope you’ll get a copy share & glean some daily vibe.

Finally, the code behind DuckDuckGo Smarter Encryption is now open source (Apache 2.0 license) and available on GitHub here:

The list we use (as a result of running this code) is also publicly available under the CC BY-NC-SA 4.0 license.

Original tweet :

At the center of our Smarter Encryption technology is a large list of websites that we know have encrypted (HTTPS) versions of their websites. This list is much larger than alternatives because we automatically generate it through crawling the web.

Original tweet :

In addition, @Pinterest is using DuckDuckGo Smarter Encryption to increase the encryption in their pin links by 33%, with 80% of pin links now encrypted and therefore secure (up from 60%).

Original tweet :

When using an encrypted connection, snoopers can only see the domain you are doing to. Everything else — like your search terms, the exact page you visit, and anything you type in — will just look like gobbledegook to anyone snooping.

Original tweet :

Smarter Encryption is a key component of our mobile app (DuckDuckGo Privacy Browser) and desktop browser extension (DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials)

It makes sure when you type a website URL or click on a link that you use the encrypted version if possible.
