Big announcement time 🎉

This project started as a "labor of love" side project but the awesome community response clearly showed me it deserved even more attention and care.

I'm excited to announce that NLnet / @NGIZero will be funding the project, allowing me to dedicate my full time to it and contribute in my own way to our collective struggle for online identity and security.

I thank all of you for your motivating feedback. Now, we can really begin 😎

I made a thing! 🎉

It's a browser extension that recommends "better" alternative products and services via in-page popups, based on community-curated lists. Available for all Chromium and Firefox-based browsers.

We live in times where the distributions costs are hampering the adoption of higher-quality (which could mean security, privacy, ethics, local etc) products. I am hoping that this extension can eventually be managed by orgs like IFF, EFF or FSF.

For everyone who uses Apple Mail on macOS, I found a really cool project for blocking pixels.

Well, mastodon.social is no longer using Cloudflare DNS. That was a good reminder for me to make the switch I'd already planned.

I would like to test the battery impact using wireguard on my iphone. Any ideas how to do that?

After testing a few linux distros, manjaro (xfce edition) seems to accept my display layout and saves it even after rebooting. Next problem: Apparently gsync doesn’t work in linux with a multiple monitor setup :(

For the second time this year, the facebook sdk takes down many popular apps like spotify or waze.
Why don't devs just stop adding this stuff to their apps.

Your Phone Is Vulnerable Because of 2G, But it Doesn't Have to Be

EFF, once again, explains privacy flaws and how to protect against them. We think 4G could solve the problem of 2G but, in fact, phone cells can always downgrade our connection to 2G

Hi folks! 9 years ago (to the day), the late Aaron Swartz made the first commit to SecureDrop, which was then called DeadDrop. Today the project is used by >70 media orgs around the world.

It's an open source whistleblower submission platform that uses the Tor network to protect source anonymity. We're also working on a next-generation integrated workstation for journalists based on Qubes OS:

We're happy to be here!

GitHub really needs to provide better insight into fork activity.

Whenever I stumble across a stagnant or unmaintained project, it's pretty much impossible to figure out if there are any active forks 😕
