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

@moz You're probably right. But it's good that the mainstream media is informing about this now.

Goodbye, Chrome: Google’s web browser has become spy software

Our latest privacy experiment found Chrome ushered more than 11,000 tracker cookies into our browser — in a single week. Here’s why Firefox is better.

Our instance reached 1.000 Users! Thank you all for joining and making this a great community.

It's in progress: OVH, Deezer, Qwant, Spotify, Zalando...

Mastodon has a dark theme by default, but have you tried the light theme?

It's especially good on the latest update (version 2.9 and above).

1. Click on Preferences

2. Click on Appearance (if necessary, not always needed)

3. Set "Site Theme" to "Mastodon Light"

4. Scroll to the bottom of the screen and click "Save changes"

5. Click "Back to Mastodon"

And that's it 👍

Try out the new Mastodon Layout (single-column). It's enabled for new users by default. Existing users can change it here: social.privacytools.io/setting (Disable advanced web interface)

Instance upgraded to Mastodon v2.9.0! 

Updated instance to Mastodon v2.9.0rc2! 

@greyor @jj ah fantastic, yeah I was the one that reported that so we’re definitely aware. It probably won’t go live here until 2.9.0rc2+ is released: github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/@jonah

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.
