The government in #Portugal is making a tracking phone app mandatory by law. Among other features, it forces geographic tracking on at all times. Expect similar things in other members of the #EU. A #Linux phone was never so necessary.
@luis_de_sousa Do you have a link to a copy of the law or a reputable analysis?
@luis_de_sousa It's a Covid tracking app? I could understand voluntary usage, but mandatory is problematic. Thank you!
@groff Yes, it is call Stay Away Covid. And yes, it is becoming mandatory.
@luis_de_sousa If I lived there I'd start carrying my phone in a Faraday cage.
Have you considered a Pinephone ? Thanks for the info about their upcoming law.
@luis_de_sousa the government is *considering* that, and will soon realize it.s unconstitutional (as well as impractical and inefficient).
