Anyone want to help privacytools.io with some somewhat tedious tasks? 😆

I'm trying to add i18n support to the site so we can get some translations up! But it means I need pretty much every English string to be copied to a separate file to be translated. Info @ github.com/privacytoolsIO/priv

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 😄

: Simplified Federation.

Simplifies following or interacting with other users on remote Mastodon instances in the Fediverse. It skips the "Enter your Mastodon handle" popup and takes you to your own "home" instance, without entering your Mastodon handle on remote instances.

Hey everyone! I think I fixed an issue affecting notifications on mobile clients, sorry it took so long..... If they still don't work for you, please sign out and sign back in, and if they still don't after that let me know.

This may(?) have also broken web notifications for you. If you're not getting notifications in your browser anymore please refresh or log out and log back in and that should fix everything 😄

Ive just published my next blog in the Slicing onion series. This one is about how Tor relates to vpns and other tech. And its called: Onion recipes; VPN not required.

I hope you all enjoy it, and be sure to give feedback if you have any :)

We're very happy to be a partner of the HTC EXODUS and thus to be the default search engine on it.

It's together that we can make progress in terms of privacy. Join the movement!
