One of the first and most important steps when deciding to take data privacy more seriously is to create an honest threat model.

What information am I trying to protect and who are you protecting it from?

Any recommendations for the best static site hosting? Free to really cheap suggestions welcome.

I don’t use github, and I don’t care much for gitlab, so I’d like to avoid those.

Pushed some updates. Added new blog post (re-blog) and added Mullvads new mobile app links.

Join me over on birdsite on April 14, 2020 at 12pm PT, 3pm ET. Along with Startpage, I will be answering questions on privacy online and IRL.

In my latest blog for Startpage, I look at why even though privacy laws are good, we shouldn't be relying on lawmakers to protect us.

A great law today can be overturned tomorrow.

That's why we should be choosing services that act ethically because it's the right thing to do, not because they are being compelled.

hey all, I wrote about privacy in my home for Startpage.

Having children online can seem overwhelming, but honestly we can take some simple steps to keep them safe online and ensure they aren't having their privacy rights violated.

Pushed a large update to TryLinux.today

Added a new hardware section for Linux computers and cleaned up some inactive OS recommendations.

This is my day job work station (MacBook Pro). No real work area since my wife works from home and has the home office. So I work at the kitchen table for now. #showyourworkspace

I (Dan Arel) - work in the health care industry so if I have been MIA the last few weeks, it's because my day job has kept me buried with all that's happening with COVID-19.

Just know, the site is up, active, and we care deeply about your privacy still!
