Researching Privacy Tools!

Hi all. New to this community, but I’m constantly researching new privacy tools to try out and review. Besides Tor, I2P, and Freenet, are there others that you might recommend? I have heard that Signal’s privacy is iffy lately.

Nice list!

Maybe add Audius to the media section? I understand torrenting since there is no service that provides popular music without selling our privacy. But supporting decentralized platforms like Audius and maybe checking out some of the small artists there is a good way to support a solution. Since torrenting all music is not really sustainable for the industry…

Nice list. btw. After scrolling through noticed that QTodoTxt url gives an error. Perhaps there were some v1 -> v2 changes ? https://github.com/QTodoTxt/QTodoTxt2 And the Postmill url asks for a Gitlab login. These do load fine : https://gitlab.com/postmill/Postmill https://postmill.xyz/

Nice stuff.

@Dessalines do you know why the lemmur app stoped working after the new update to lemmy? Incompatibility in some protacols. Thanks

You need to go to their github to upgrade to the newest version of lemmur. It was an API upgrade.

I recommend Syncthing instead of cloud services. You never really notice how much stuff is “in the cloud” but storing it all and relying on it all there is taking a big leap in trust for the service you use.

Alternatively, self-hosted NextCloud/related service might also work but involves a bit more setup. Pros of that is that there isn’t duplication of files stored on mutiple devices; ie. it works more like you would expect

You can checkout !privatelife@lemmy.ml in sidebar of this community, and r/privatelife, places I founded and where I share my guides. I made it to be a resource first place and to give voices to people.

Glad that his work is being shared and not viciously attacked here, unlike reddit. Someone chose to attack his work even on my subreddit, set the record straight.
