Hey everyone! Just a friendly reminder that this instance is privately-operated and does have a code of conduct. It's a simple one but it does exist! social.privacytools.io/about/m

I highly recommend people check it out and use common sense and there won't be an issue. We are highly responsive to user reports made as well, and if you don't think we're handling something quick enough you can always ping me. Definitely want to discourage instance blocks to avoid fediverse fragmentation 😄

I should have a pinned message to new users.

Welcome to social.privacytools.io everyone! If you have any questions feel free to mention me in a post or DM and I'd be happy to answer them!

Also, adding a profile picture, bio, and an post will go a long way towards discovering new and interesting people in the fediverse 😄

This isn’t #privacy related, but the needs of humanity are above all else - Our small bubble of colleagues have already donated about 400 trees to the #teamtrees initiative to plant TWENTY MILLION trees by 2020.

Please consider donating.
Only $1 gets 1 tree planted.

Apple really does treat biometrics as a trustworthy computing layer, whereas other companies in the mobile space reliably treat biometrics as proof-of-concept sales pitches for their whitelabel component business. twitter.com/holly/status/11847
