Maybe consider one of these #AOSP forks

https://piunikaweb.com/2019/02/05/the-demise-of-copperheados-and-rise-of-its-successors/

They only run on Pixels.
Give a great camera & security -
Monthly updates
Verified boot

You could wait for the upcoming #Pixel3Lite to be released. Hopefully by then #HashbangOS will have reproducable builds sorted and be offering downloads of factory images, which would make adoption much easier (no need to build)

#AOSP on some kind of #Pixel arguably gives more #privacy and #security than #iOS

Tor fingerprints thousands of users who download its phone apps to Android


This is shocking and depressing.

Tor’s Android app download pages are laden with Google trackers!

As we can see by these screen grabs of the Guardian Project’s secure apps page, their syndication deal with the Big G means there are two Google tracker requests on this page (from 2 Google embeds, Gstatic and GoogleAPIs)

Google APIs tends to employ different Google bits like fonts and can be made safe if tweaked by the website's developers, but Gstatic is a collector.

In the past I have spoken about the importance of owning and controlling your data and here's just one more reason why that is important: #Twitter keeps your Direct Messages (DMs) after the user deletes them and they are accessible internally and could be retreived by third parties such as crackers or even the Government with a warrant.

We should be more cautious and discerning about the data we hand over to these companies and this is one more reason why we should be supporting more open, federated networks and ensuring we are using the right tools to secure our personal and private conversations.

Subj: Concerning Copyright Reform and Article 13

Dear Member of the European Parliament!

To make things clear from the start - I am not one of your constituents as I live in Russia. However recent developments concerning Article 13 of the copyright Directive will have global impact which will also directly affect me so I decided to reach out.

You are probably aware of the critique of Article 13. While these proposals might be acceptable to large platforms they will decimate smaller social services because the cost of implementing upload filters will be prohibiti

One click and you're out: UK makes it an offence to view terrorist propaganda even once • The Register

It will be an offence to view terrorist material online just once – and could incur a prison sentence of up to 15 years – under new UK laws.

The Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill was granted Royal Assent yesterday, updating a previous Act and bringing new powers to law enforcement to tackle terrorism.

Google, Facebook, Apple news should be regulated: UK government report


https://www.cnbc.com/2019/02/12/google-facebook-apple-news-should-be-regulated-uk-government-report.html
A U.K. government report published Tuesday said a regulator should ensure tech firms like Facebook, Google and Apple are taking steps to help users identify trustworthy, reliable news on their platforms. 
The report also said social media companies should agree to "code of conduct" to govern their commercial agreements with publishers. 
The U.K. report's findings could add weight to the case for further regulation of tech companies in Britain and across Europe.

Why you should seriously consider deleting WhatsApp from your phone - And if not, add Telegram and Signal to your phone to help others delete Whatsapp


You might want to consider ditching WhatsApp if you want to protect your private data, warns tech expert Toby Shapshak. Shapshak is the author of Stuff magazine and says the messaging app no longer offers enough security.

He says users should be wary of the Facebook-owned messaging app after the string of privacy threats, breaches and scandals facing the social media company.

Shapshak says Facebook has a history of exploiting data without the consent of users and could target the instant messaging service next.

Toby is echoing what many others are warning about. We've seen over many years that Facebook cannot be trusted with personal data (and they know they can do better) and integrating Whatsapp, Instagram and Facebook together clearly will result in "it can be done better" yet again. I know many people cannot delete Whatsapp (myself included as I have groups at work still using it) but what we can all do is install Telegram and Signal so that others can find it easier to leave Whatsapp if they wish to. It's often us who are holding other back from leaving as... Show more...
