If you've been follow the news lately you might have noticed that keeping your sensitive data private is becoming more important than ever before. The #FOSS community probably is your best bet to get trustworthy software. Weighting #privacy vs. comfort however can be hard at times. #android #ux

So eg. if you were planning on using a period tracking #app what permissions would give freely?

(1/2)

  • neither data export, nor network access
  • data export, but no network access
  • network access, but not data export
  • both network access and data export

If you selected network sync in the previous poll: What kind of network sync would you expect?

(1/2)

  • end to end encryption with manual key management
  • end to end encryption with automatic key management
  • self-hosted FOSS sync server
  • comercially hosted proprietary sync server

planning to sending this out tomorrow

@SylvieLorxu:matrix.orgSylviaI also don't really get the point of the post much, is this an indirect way to ask user opinions about Android backups? And the second poll implies e2e and sync server are never compatible which I think makes no sense?21:59:57
@uniq:matrix.orgmichaelIt's not easy for me to compress meaning full responses into just four options22:04:28
@uniq:matrix.orgmichaelthe second poll is supposed to be multiple choice22:04:56
@SylvieLorxu:matrix.orgSylviaAh okay22:05:15
@SylvieLorxu:matrix.orgSylviaAlso what do you mean with data export permission? The permission is filesystem access I guess? But that's not necessary for a data export (in fact I still need to fix that in Catima heh)22:08:08
@uniq:matrix.orgmichaelyes, doesn't really make sense22:09:14
@uniq:matrix.orgmichael * yes, doesn't really make sense22:09:27

@uniq:matrix.orgmichaelI think I should write a community mangement handbook07:05:30
@uniq:matrix.orgmichaelWe never directly respond to bad press07:06:21
@uniq:matrix.orgmichaelor angry users07:06:34
@uniq:matrix.orgmichaelbecause It gives credit to their story07:06:53
@uniq:matrix.orgmichaelwe'd basically enable them to drag us down07:07:24
@uniq:matrix.orgmichaelThe best way to deal with this is just engaging with our personal mastodon accounts07:08:10
@uniq:matrix.orgmichael * We never directly respond to bad press, with our official accounts07:08:55
@uniq:matrix.orgmichael * we'd basically enable them to drag us down (aka feeding the trolls)07:09:37

@uniq:matrix.orgmichaelgoogle play won't display app permissions anymore09:02:07
@uniq:matrix.orgmichaelI've drafted a short blog article about it, what do you think?09:02:47
@uniq:matrix.orgmichael(It's also meant as a partial debunking to the wonderf. BS)09:03:32
@SylvieLorxu:matrix.orgSylviaJust the website or also the app?09:03:50
