Dead link, I think you meant freedombox.org
I've done this with a Lenovo Chromebook past ChromeOS EOL.Out of curiosity: what chromebook with which SoC?
What is? Neither one really can be to my knowledge.What makes you think that? I've heard a lot of people say it's a botnet and full of spyware, but I genuinely want to know why?
Sorry I meant to specify about Brave. I had a look at some stuff about Brave having spooky spyware on it, but all it was was external libraries, fonts, and the Brave BAT system doing affiliate link checks from time to time. Although the section about telemetry was slightly concerning, it can be manually turned off (using Wireshark you can see there's no more messages being sent out to static1.brave.com anymore).What is? Neither one really can be to my knowledge.
Ungoogled Chromium is debotnetted, it does not phone in to google or anyone else for that matter and its code is up on github for all to see.
Ublock is a adblock script manager, and a powerful one at that. Vital to security on the modern web. I imagine it does phone home, but only to keep itself and its scripts updated.
nice placebo.Ungoogled Chromium is debotnetted
IMPORTANT: These binaries are provided by anyone who are willing to build and submit them. Because these binaries are not necessarily reproducible, authenticity cannot be guaranteed. For your consideration, each download page lists the GitHub user that submitted those binaries.
I get the feeling that people who claim that are turbo autists who value theoretical privacy over pragmatism. I'm all for infosec but I'm not gonna avoid 90% of the modern Internet because muh spyware botnet concerns.I've heard a lot of people say it's a botnet and full of spyware
I know someone who torrented a Game of Thrones file both with and without Mullvad.I don't have much to add, but if you are talking about paying crypto to certain VPNs I would nominate Mullvad as the best VPN for anonymity, you can literally just send them money by post for your account (or use crypto if that's your thing). No email and no card (unless you wanted to pay by card) required, if there are any other companies with that model by all means list them, but I would say Mullvad > Nord.
Perhaps you know this already but for those that don't, the systems that do this are largely automated these days. Effectively it works like so:He got a notice from his ISP without Mullvad on, and no notice when he used Mullvad.
