Some tips from the EFF (https://ssd.eff.org/en/module/attending-protest).
Before the Protest
- Enable full-disk encryption on your device
- Remove fingerprint unlock and FaceID
- Install Signal
- Back up your data
- Buy a prepaid, disposable phone
- Consider biking or walking to the protest (to avoid Automated License Plate Reader Systems)
During the Protest
- Take photos and videos without unlocking your device
- Enable airplane mode
After the Protest
- Scrub metadata on photos

🎉 The fediverse is 12 years old, so we decided to celebrate (slightly late) by doing an alpha release.
You can check it out at https://github.com/H-PixelDroid/PixelDroid/releases, make sure to read what is broken and why, so that we keep the bug reports to things we don't know about and that are under our control.
Tell us what you think!
👌 Be more productive with Collabora Office 🌻
🎉 Happy 12th Birthday, #Fediverse
It's great that you don't put all your eggs in one basket ;) Stay cool.

I took some time to make a quick video of our upcoming Pixelfed Android client, we will make an alpha release soon ™️
You can of course already go take a look at the source code and compile it for yourself, for now hosted on GitHub but that will change soon: https://github.com/H-PixelDroid/PixelDroid/
Still a lot of work to be done, but it's slowly getting there :)
Making #apps that respect privacy is important, but if we want everyone from our kids to grandparents to use them, there needs to be a stellar user experience.
Not only does it need to be on-par with "the other" websites that everyone uses, the UX actually needs to be better.

We've recently seen a number of posts regarding the best ways to keep your music listening private.
The solution is to not use any streaming service.
Buy music in physical form like CD & Vinyl or purchase and download MP3s etc. Place them in your own library via an #opensource app.
Whenever possible, buy directly from the artist to increase your financial support level.
Newer cars can accept a hi-capacity USB memory stick so you can bring thousands of songs with you.
"At the beginning of April, Interpol issued a global warning about the threat of ransomware to health care providers. [...] But the spread of #Covid19 presents unique challenges—just as ransomware is at its most threatening."
