Introducing our PeerTube Instance

As of April 2019, one of PrivacyTools' main goals is to promote the creation and use of decentralized and federated networks to replace the centralized giants like Google and Facebook that have taken control of the Internet over the last decade. We have already launched Mastodon and WriteFreely instances with thousands of users, and our Matrix home server is one of the largest in the Matrix universe.

Choosing the right Messenger

One of the most common questions users have when it comes to privacy is about messaging services. It seems that almost all of them mention some level of privacy or encryption to entice the user to sign up for their service, but how can you be sure that you are using the most secure, privacy-friendly platform?

The problem with VPN and privacy review sites

There is a huge problem in the privacy world. Websites, social media accounts and other platforms are constantly popping up out of nowhere and telling you to buy the best service ever to solve all your privacy problems, whatever they may be. These websites often use marketing teams to ensure that their "reviews" are what you see first when you begin your research. Some of them are even operated by VPN providers themselves, operating under anonymous business entities to hide their bias, or doing it right out in the open, hoping to confuse you their advertising-filled press releases and blogs as insider information of the VPN space.

Choosing a VPN

So you know what a VPN is, but there are so many options to choose from! Well, before we dive into this, let's get one thing off the bat: Avoid free VPNs Privacy-respecting VPNs can provide their service because you pay them to do so. Free VPNs are worse than your ISP when it comes to respecting your privacy because selling your data is the only way they can make money, whereas an ISP is paid by you in the first place.
