Somebody wants to mention about PrivacyGuides stealing $17,500 of PTIO’s donations, or how they take Brave Rewards money and “recommend” Brave?
“stealing” ? and I didn’t know about brave rewards, do they really do that ?
It has been a very long time since they are doing it silently continuously. BurungHantu hinted on it on his PTIO blog, where he did revelations on PrivacyGuides crimes, IIRC.
P.S. since you are the OP, I will tell you I know werwolf personally and he was complaining in our personal group chat, of PrivacyGuides fans misusing this article to make themselves more credible.
I skimmed through the article and I’m surprised the author at no point mentions the “drama” or the discussion the founder of privacytoolsio had with the mantainers of the website when they decided to move to privacyguides. To me it lost reputation after that.
I think the author is @email@example.com, I feel like the article is targeted towards people who already know about the drama. (some of it’s mentioned in another page)
Yeah, they didn’t research properly. They just visited the website and ‘researched’ what happens when you click their links.
I don’t think so, I believe they already know about it just didn’t write it in the article.
Worth mentioning that the team behind PT.io moved to https://privacyguides.org almost a year ago, so this might only apply to whoever is running PT.io at the moment. From their subr*ddit:
