I don’t know if there exists such a thing as GrapheneOS account, but it is not required. You can add Google, Facebook or other accounts like with regular Android. I use a self hosted Nextcloud instance to synchronize contacts and calendar with DavX5 app. GrapheneOS has built-in apps. I use most of them. For the app stores I mostly use Fdroid and Aurora store for non open source software. I don’t use Google play store even sandboxed because I don’t accept the terms of use, mostly because they have the right to uninstall apps from your phone without consent or notice.

Like Windows, Ubuntu is installed by default on many computers. In my university, all the computers have a dual boot Ubuntu Windows.

Some like Phind or Perplexity cite their sources. And they give you directly the answer you’re looking for without having to search it in a mess of “subscribe to our newsletter”, “other articles that may interest you”, 3 paragraphs of “if you read this article, you will know what you want to know”, “special promotion for you”,…

Glad to see you use cash. It’s often forgotten in privacy advice, despite being one of the most importants.

supermarket club cards

Hey I’m sure you all know how sketchy club cards are for collecting your data. But I do begrudge paying slightly higher prices just for valuing my privacy. I was wondering if there was any way to sign up to these things whilst limiting the data they have access to. Would it be enough to sign up with fake details and never use...

Which privacy services would you donate to?

Due to financial problems, throughout my privacy journey I have only used free tools to enhance my privacy. I was recently thinking about the question: If I had the money to give back to the services I’ve used, which ones would I donate to? Here is my personal list, which is still a WIP:...

I think my first donation would be to GrapheneOS.

Android Microphone Snooping (lemmy.world)

So I had a verbal conversation with a coworker yesterday and now I’m getting fed very specific ads. No possible way it’s accidental. I have most of the microphone access to apps limited, I have Google assistant turned off and no VPA setup in my home. I use a Oneplus 9 pro, does anyone have recommendations on how to further...

A few years ago, I’ve read an article where the journalists investigated this. They asked to Facebook it they actually do it and Facebook confirmed.

But it’s clear that Google has a history of building products with RSS and killing the RSS support once it’s established a user base.

Not only RSS. It was the same with XMPP, and probably other things I don’t remember now. Better don’t rely on Google products.

The announcer (the enterprise on the ad) pays to the advertising platform (for example Google) which gives a small amount to the site displaying the ad.

I installed Tubular today. It’s a fork of NewPipe with SponsorBlock. Is it the same thing or a different fork?

Ça reviendrait à défédérer l’instance. Je pense pas que ce soit possible un jour. C’est contraire à l’esprit de Lemmy.

L’application par défaut de GrapheneOS. J’ai jamais eu à m’en plaindre.

The library is closed source.

The multilingual support always predict words in all languages, even if you started a sentence in a specific one. And it will follow the typo rules of the first language in the list. For example, if the first language is French, it will add a space before the interrogation mark (French rule), even if you’re writing in English.

Phind had an open source model, but the web interface isn’t open source.

Close the app and find another one.

Initial Impressions of GrapheneOS

About a week ago, I finally made the decision to flash GrapheneOS on my Pixel 6. I’ve been thinking about moving to GrapheneOS for months but was afraid to do so because of missing functionalities or app incompatibility that would result in my Pixel 6 becoming unusable. Even though I could just re-flash stock Android should I...

I have no problem using NFC with GrapheneOS on a Pixel 4A.

I just used it to try some NFC-proof wallets, scanning my bank card with and without the wallet. I don’t use it everyday.

Is it part of the apps that have been recently sold to a commercial company? If so, you have to uninstall it and download the “Fossify” equivalent to keep the open source version.

This is an important criteria for me. If I can’t read the full article without leaving the reader and without a WebView, I won’t keep the RSS feed.

The argument that Debian doesn’t have the latest packages is only valid for stable repository, right?

Wouldn’t Debian with unstable or testing repo be better than Linux Mint?
