many products claim they are "privacy-friendly."
but, what does that mean for a product to be privacy-friendly?
have those products defined "privacy-friendly"?
here is a suggestion of criterion:
1) the code should be open-source. Why shall people trust teams/products who don't trust to open source their code?
2) there should be no trackers. Stop tracking people. People are not the product; whether people pay for the product is irrelevant. People should not be subject to tracking. Can product teams trust their vision to lead product development with no tracking?
3) venture-capital-backed product - who knows which companies will end up acquiring those products/startups? where will people's data end up?
4) is the infrastructure of those products centralised or decentralised? do those products process and/or store people's data on their servers?
This, is work in progress. Feel free to share your thoughts by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by opening an issue.
