You can always use a libreddit instance. Change reddit.com in the URL to libredd.it. I have a local instance and use the Privacy Redirect extension to make Google search results use my local instance instead of the actual site.

How do you get privacy redirect on mobile?

I use untrackme to redirect various stuff, but it’s external and not directly integrated with the browser

People are saying they all have seen this but… I’m on reddit mobile all the time and this is new to me. At least this way of doing it.

What I normally see is “reddit is better in the app” and two buttons, asking you to try the app or if you want to stay in the browser. It was presented kind of as a choice. Now it looks like a demand!

Yeah I always just see that as well. But I am logged in, this isn’t shown to people who are logged in.

Try i.reddit.com instead, it’s reddit’s secret older mobile website.

Yeah, this is incredibly infuriating. It’s small things like this that are pushing me to just get rid of my old reddit account.

I keep it around just to have it incase I want to talk a bit, but any time you’re not using the reddit mobile app they make it such an infuriating experience for absolutely no reason.

I’ve noticed this too. I guess I’ll live without them…

Been that way for a while now.

yes. however, you can still log in and then it won’t do this.

I’ll pass. My reddit account got permabanned for saying that the cop who killed Daniel Shaver deserves to die. If that’s worth a permaban but the numerous subreddits filled with bigotry can stay up on reddit, then I’m fine not having an account or using the site anymore.

Honestly, this is so infuriating… Reddit is ruined at this point. I wonder why they force people to use the app so much. I know why. ADVERTS! :( I hope this site grows more (lemmygrad.ml)

I had a similar experience earlier today: i was on the web version of the Wage app (freelancing platform) and saw a banner saying they’re gonna scrap the website and force everyone to use the mobile app only

All the proprietary stuff is just getting more user-hostile by the day. like, how long before average people can’t tolerate it anymore and start switching to free stuff? i really wanna see that.

They have way more tracking and advertising options on an app and it’s harder to adblock there…

Also apps can stay active in the background etc, users just have way less control. Especially casual users will just let the apps have camera and microphone rights and whatever.

You gotta vote by leaving those platforms; It doesnt matter if you get the app, they are going down the “mine engagement data while we drive engagement” path and it leads nowhere good.

That’s annoying for sure, but you can still get around that with old.reddit.com and i.reddit.com.

The old version is still much better… there’s a browser extension that does the redirect automatically

Take a look at Privacy Redirect. It supports a bunch of services, like youtube and twitter.

I’ve installed an opensource reddit app to bypass to annoying limitations and tracking when needed. Also it load 100x faster.

Redreader, 10mo of storage. Worth it.

RedReader is nice. I personally use Slide, it’s great too.

There’s a great reddit app alternative called Stealth, you won’t need to log in and you can see the content you want to see, you may download it from F-Droid
