Thank you Infosec-handbook for taking a comprehensive look at /e/'s privacy!
"While /e/ looks promising, it isn’t Google-free by now."
Agreed, and we will reply and address most of the points you are listing.
The quest for better #privacy on our mobiles continues!
This week, /e/ is getting supported on 3 new devices:
- Samsung Galaxy J7 (Exynos) "j7eltexx"
- Xiaomi Mi 3 / Mi 4 "cancro"
- Google Nexus 5X "bullhead"
/e/ is looking for their VP of Engineering!
To users of those devices: Moto E (condor), Moto G (falcon), Moto G 4G (peregrine), Moto G 2014 (titan), Nexus 4 (mako), Nexus 5 (hammerhead), HTC One m8 (m8), Wingtech Redmi 2 (wt88047)
Please read the following before OTA updating /e/!
/e/ has been downloaded thousand times for testing, and we are now more than 500 users using ungoogle /e/ mobile OS and online services beta for every day use!
Support the project!
50MB online test account can be unlocked to 5GB for 99€/year at: https://e.foundation/crowdfunding/
Let's meet at #MWC2019 to talk about privacy on smartphones! 2018 was the year concerns over data #privacy moved into the spotlight.
Next step is giving consumers’ back control over data. Join the /e/ team at Nexedi's booth, Hall 5, Stand 5B1, Station 25.
Just casually saw you support d855... 15min later my trusty g3 is breathing new life. Thank you :)
