This #NewYearsResolution should be about increasing your privacy online! Here are some recommendations to quickly increase your privacy and leave Google: https://tutanota.com/blog/posts/how-to-leave-google-gmail/ 😀🥳
@Tutanota Password Manager - Firefox Lockwise
Web Search - DuckDuckGo
Laptop / Desktop OS - Linux or *BSD
Phone OS - /e/ or LineageOS
Physical Activity - OpenTracks
Public Transit - Transportr
GPS Navigation - Magic Earth
@black_sun any other operating system should be considered insecure. Good projects, but bad security.
@black_sun I chose the distros I did because I consider them far more secure as opposed to most other distros. It’s also why I put OpenBSD first.
@will88 It's quite good, worth giving it a try (I've switched from Sygic). I hope the searching will improve, otherwise it's fine with me.
I was able to decrypt everything, even the sender's ip address.
To decrypt it, it only took six rx6900xt graphic cards, and 5 minutes.
I then had the key and was able to decrypt everything from this user (test account, we don't test on real users, for obvious reasons ).
Their encryption on matrix are not configured, and are prone to side collision attacks.
Signal is slightly better.
@The_Quantum_Alpha @iamhabenula @Tutanota
The problem with signal is the nonfederated server and non-free clients. If I don't trust matrix.org (which I don't), I would set up my own instance and check it's code, and get the client from @fdroidorg which I trust, then federate with matrix users.
But when I don't trust signal (which I don't either), there's no private way to communicate with people on it.
@Tutanota I like the list, but I need an online office suite, or at least spreadsheet and word processor, there anything out there aside from gDocs? Zoho has some, but it's overkill and therefore hard to use
If you use nextcloud you can easily use CollaboraOffice (Basically LibreOffice online). Maybe even possible without Nextcloud.
Also there is OnlyOffice (Works better with MS-Office, don't like LO-Documents).
gDocs gives google a look in everything you are writing and how you are doing it. Especially if Info's about others are included ore you want them to participate, I believe using google is never responsible.
@coolboymew +1 Even behind the scenes, things didn't look good with the Mozilla team last year. Who knows what direction they're heading in now.
Also, is the Android version of Waterfox gone? With Firefox mobile's redesign, it seems like every mobile browser kinda sucks now, not that the scene ever looked particularly amazing to start with.
@Tutanota yes, Vivaldi does not phone home, has a built in adblocker, i approve their sync encryption, and their CEO knows what he's doing. It's a browser, and only a browser.
After some vigorous testing, you are far more private and secure on Vivaldi.
Email - Tutanota
Chat - (in limbo; no one I know uses encryption for anything...)
Office - Open Office
Browser - Firefox (currently seeking options since Mozilla is extremely shady)
Password Manager - both Bitwarden and Keepass.
It is arguable to say that in my circles I'm more or less seen as the "paranoid" one.
