Here's a little thing that may not be obvious to many people....
When you install an open-source app from Google Play or the Apple app store, there is no guarantee that what you install actually matches the public code.
@fdroidorg are doing a great service. They independently build the public source code for apps from scratch, review for common issues, and publish their builds. Thanks to "reproducible builds" it's possible to verify they do not tamper with the code.

Updates a.o. hold another K-9 beta – so if you're on that track, make sure to check for it.
#Debian created an ecosystem where the software available there is reviewed and trusted, so the system can prioritize flexibility over security. In #Google Play, there are many apps we feel forced to use, despite knowing they are unethical or are tracking us. Google responds by locking down #Android to reduce data leaks, which also reduces the system's flexibility. #FreeSoftware puts the user in control so we can build user-friendly systems without being forced into bad decisions.
Siteul F-Droid este acum disponibil și în limba română, mulțumită eforturilor celor câțiva contributori voluntari. Paginile principale sunt complete, dar Documentația și descrierile aplicațiilor sunt încă în lucru. Persoanele interesate să dea o mână de ajutor pentru completarea lor sau pentru îmbunătățirea traducerilor existente sunt încurajate să contribuie prin intermediul portalului Weblate F-Droid (https://hosted.weblate.org/languages/ro/f-droid/).

Torsten Grote explored Free Software alternatives for smartphones as early as 2012. ⭐
In our interview we look back at the start of Free Your Android campaign.
Of course, we asked @firstname.lastname@example.org which options are available for liberating our phones today.
The interview was conducted in the context of celebrating 20 Years of the FSFE 🙂 #FSFE20
@AntennaPod a great #FLOSS #PodCatcher for #Android has joined the #Fediverse. 😊 🎉 We'd like to extend a warm welcome. 💕 So if you love #Podcasts and #FreeSoftware you might want to take a look at #AntennaPod. Although we suspect most of you know the project already anyway. 😉
