> In the May update Bitwarden brings integration with three popular email forwarding services: SimpleLogin, AnonAddy, and Firefox Relay. These services focus on bringing privacy, and with it, security, to users’ online accounts. The combination of using email aliases they service alongside a password manager adds multiple layers of protection online. With these new Bitwarden integrations, users now have a convenient way to generate both anonymous email addresses and secure passwords for ultimate security.

There seems to have been a rebranding of ProtonMail, how does that sound?

>> Google was pretty friendly and cooperative and told me the favicons are indeed the problem, and it can/should be fixed by updating in the privacy policy to "disclose how your app accesses, collects, uses, and shares user data. >> Given the huge number of supportive messages I received (much appreciated!) the project will be continued in some form in any case.

It is very interesting that they use the IPFS protocol, but it is disappointing that only the front-end is open source and that there is no self-hosted solution.

I too was thinking about it, but unfortunately fate willed it so

I don’t know anything other than what the author wrote on XDA unfortunately, I think it will still work for a long time but bugs and fixes will not be considered or even solved.

Yes, there is https://k9mail.app/

The repository seems to have been archived.

But now traditional currencies are regulated and no longer suffer from those problems, but cryptocurrencies are going through the same problems causing quite a few problems.

So, what, the problem isn’t parasitic “large enterprises”, but rather, how do we allow them to keep doing what they’re doing without killing the host?

Forcing them to cede part of their turnover (as a co-investment model) to the open source projects they use in their commercial services. But behind these projects should not be a person, but a non-profit organisation that also acts as a legal custodian.

> Free and Open Source Software is eating the world, but is at the same time a victim of its own success. Large enterprises rely on libraries maintained by a single individual, or maybe worse yet: a single vendor. > Individuals or organizations may restrict the use of their technology or EOL versions of their software, posing real challenges to organizations and customers depending on that technology. How can we contribute to the viability and sustainability of open source?

That’s great, I think it’s going to revolutionize the automotive industry

I think I will be using BitWarden for a long time until I am sure that this new process is really safe, but it sure is very convenient.

20% (your estimate) is a percentage with a good market share that can be considered impactful, currently users if they want to switch to an iPhone they must also have the other Apple products since they can’t use them with Windows normally without relying on third party programs to be able to transfer files in peace (stupid example). I myself own Apple devices and currently it’s a bit of an ordeal if I want to use them with my Windows/Linux workstation, I’d also like to freely install Linux (luckily there is the community working to make it compatible) on a MacBook with M1 because it’s a fantastic machine and I recognize the good work they did. This is all called “limiting competition” and thus keeping users as loyal as possible, and at the end of the day it really does impact the environment and the end consumer as well. At least that’s my opinion, so amen to that.

You may have discovered one of the possible reasons why they attempted phishing. And I can confirm that most universities, as well as private companies, work with their country’s government… So I’m not even surprised.

Very interesting read, with this you understand that every person is indeed vulnerable to these types of frauds. Nothing like this has happened to me yet, but if it were to happen to me I think I would more or less know how to move and frame the person as quickly as possible.

> The effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and the shock of the invasion of Ukraine has meant that our desire for news and information has become the perfect opportunity for criminals to dupe more victims. Scammers have been actively contacting citizens via calls, text messages or social media platforms to offer high-demand products and services that are actually fraudulent. They will even trick you into donating to fake charities, when in fact your money is going straight into the criminal’s pocket.
