De-Googled Android used to be tricky. But this time, @e_mydata@twitter.com nailed it: /e/ OS 1.0 brings ALL apps from the Play Store (yes, paid ones as well), super easy privacy, without Google. Oh, and it runs on the Fairphone too. Take a look at all this here:

Wir haben das Fediverse-Schaubild nach dem Feedback nochmal ein wenig überarbeitet. 👇

#Fediverse

@imke

If we don't want to live in a world where everything we do can affect which ads, contents, functionalities, environments, offers, prices, options and choices we get across myriads of companies, we need to disrupt the seamless exchange of personal identifiers across companies.

Zusammen mit @imke haben wir mal das #Fediverse Schaubild überarbeitet. Siehe anbei. Feedback willkommen. ✌️

Im Januar gab die App von #KINOde noch wie wild #Standortdaten und Kennnummern weiter, teilweise sogar unverschlüsselt. Dann haben wir darüber berichtet und sind mit dem Anbieter ins Gespräch gekommen. Jetzt tut sie das alles nicht mehr. Läuft. 😊 mobilsicher.de/apptest/frisch-

Android development is not that easy if you want to make sure that no unwanted transitive dependencies creep in through any libraries, such as analytics or tracking.

Removed before release, so all is well for our user base. Thank you for those wonderful tools 💚

I'm pleased to note that even dolphin.town, my Mastodon server where the only letter you are allowed to post is "e", has seen increased activity in the last few days.

Thanks Eeeeelon!

Beside the well known @Fairphone there is also an german (so far not so well known) green and modular smartphone/pc/tablet manufacturer called Shiftphone. Might be interesting for one or two people in here.
