Around 8000 clients in Myanmar/Burma are connected the Tor network. This does not count the users connected by bridges to Tor.

In Briar all communication goes through Tor, to protect your identity.
To circumvent censorship, Briar gives you access to bridges in case Tor is blocked by your ISP.

In case of internet shutdown, Briar can use Bluetooth and WiFi to pass on messages to your contacts.

If you’re a developer in 2021 and you’re adding tracking devices from Google, Facebook, etc., to your sites and apps, the one thing you can’t do any longer is to feign innocence. You know exactly what you’re doing and you’re complicit in perpetuating surveillance capitalism.

Surveillance capitalism isn’t some corruption of capitalism; it’s just what capitalism is in the digital network age.

In 2021, we want to focus on improving some of the very core features of Tails, especially for censorship circumvention.

We want to completely redesign how to start Tor and configure Tor bridges.

This will make it easier for people in countries where accessing Tor is blocked to circumvent censorship. According to data from the Tor project, the top 5 countries by users of Tor bridges are Russia, Iran, the US, Belarus, and China.

Big win for #privacy and #openstandards in #Germany :

Brandenburg banned the usage of #Microsoft products (especially Teams) in schools.

Let's hope that initiatives like @digitalcourage will have bigger influence after this.

🇬🇧 EP Home Affairs Committee clears the way for #TERREG. This means: Orban will be deleting websites in your country, without a court order. Unacceptable and probably violates fundamental rights.
