For the past year, ThinkPrivacy has been hosted by Namecheap as part of their start-up program, but our time in that program is coming to an end.

Anyone have any good, affordable VPS recommendations?

ThinkPrivacy makes no money. We don't sell ads, no affiliate links, etc. So all money comes from my personal finances (we get random donations here and there, but not enough to sustain it).

Any recommendations are appreciated!

Alright, we finally finished our project to move our blog off the homepage and into it's own menu item. This means that the landing page of ThinkPrivacy is now just our recommendations.

In case you missed our latest blog: @danarel sat down with the CEO of System1 to discuss their partnership with Startpage and why they felt investing in privacy was a good idea.

I talked to the CEO of System1 about their partnership with Startpage and their motivations into entering the privacy world given the company's history.

Tomorrow I am releasing an interview with the CEO of System1. This has been a big project of mine to better understand their move into the privacy market, especially that of Startpage.

Can't wait to finish formatting it and publishing it in the morning.

My latest for HackerNoon on how easy it is to achieve privacy online. Fear of tech doesn't have to be an obstacle to internet privacy.

Honestly, we should be better about using this account!

I wrote for Infosecurity Magazine about why it's time (and well beyond time!) for the US to pardon Snowden.

Recently, we removed Firefox Send because of security concerns and they took the service down. Today, they announced Send is dead.

We will also be removing Lockwise because Mozilla keeps killing projects after adoption, causing headaches for users.

This year we launched TryLinux, a site to help organize and highlight some of the best Linux distros. It was a fork of ComputeFreely, which had become outdated.

We have decided that maintaining TryLinux is more than we care to handle at the moment and will be shutting it down.

Given the hate from the right we are getting on bird site right now, I’ll say it here as well.

ThinkPrivacy supports anti fascists in their struggles around the globe, we believe that all black lives matter, and we do not believe fascists or those who sympathize with fascists have any place in our communities.

My latest on Startpage's Privacy Please blog about the difference between using a VPN and a privacy respecting search engine (and why you need to do both!)

I have a new piece up on Hacker Noon about privacy suggestions for students going back to school with distances learning.

We updated our Riot listing to their new name and logo: Element.

We believe in transparency and showing our users how ThinkPrivacy runs.

We also are now accepting partnerships and sponsors. If you're interested, get in touch!

There is no drama, no behind the scenes reason, but I resigned from Privacy Tools last night so that I can focus solely on ThinkPrivacy.

Gotta go all-in or nothing at all!

We have delisted Firefox Send as the service is down because of malware issues.

When the service goes back up we will ensure it's meeting our standards before it is listed again.

Really excited to announce that ThinkPrivacy has been accepted into the "Powered by Namecheap" program!

This means we have a lot more resources to devote to the site and growing our efforts in spreading privacy.

We still exist and we still update the site, we just forget to update this page a lot. Oops!
