Hey /r/linux what tools do you use to increase your personal privacy? What would you recommend?

Tue, 2017-09-19 13:28

Hi folks, I'm curious as to what tools are popular on this sub. That's for the average Joe - I don't mean targeted attacks or something, but just to add a layer of protection so that not everyone can stalk me online. Of course I'm already using Linux, but what else would you consider necessary?

Personally, this is what I did:

  • Brave browser: No tracking, automatic adblock.

  • Using Totanota as Mail-provider. Open-Source and the whole mailbox is fully encrypted. Not even the providers themselves could read it.

  • Duckduckgo as default search-engine.

  • Encrypted Dropbox-folder with EncFS. Until I can set up my owncloud on my own NAS

  • Installed CyanogenMod on phone. And using heavily PrivacyGuard

  • Signal and Redphone-app. Signal is great! Default SMS, and when the other user has it installed too it switches to fully encrypted IM.

  • Cerberus app. Not necessarily connected to privacy but still a powerful tool to safeguard it on your phone by reliable remote-wipe etc.

Any further recommendations?

Is there a piece of software available in Linux that does what Newsboss does?

It's a massive app where journos file stories, editors edit, radio journos add grabs, record grabs and everything put into the app syncs with servers. Plus the app is synced with the Australian Associated Press. Also has a web browser built it. Basically the only app that needs to be open
