@telegram_1053007585:t2bot.ioTest >> Maybe fdroid needs to ellaborate a little bit more about the privacy related permissions on the app description.


F-droid is more about FOSS but they doing somethings for privacy.

F-Droid is a non-profit volunteer project. Although every effort is made to ensure that everything in the repository is safe to install, you use it AT YOUR OWN RISK. Wherever possible, applications in the repository are built from source, and that source code is checked for potential security or privacy issues. This checking is far from exhaustive and there are no guarantees.

> <@telegram_1053007585:t2bot.io> Text editors like Markor or NeutriNotes CE, don't solve your problem? They are powerful editors.

I always look at the permissions.

NeutiNotes CE has a location permission on foreground

Markor has permiasion on Record Audio.

To us common people these kind of privacy related permissions are blocking our interest in trying some apps.

We come to fdroid to find privacy respecting apps not the same apps like on goog playstore.

Maybe fdroid needs to ellaborate a little bit more about the privacy related permissions on the app description.

And what is the impact of those permissions to our privacy in real time?.
So we can download it without too much worry thus more apps on fdroid will be downloaded and put on use in real life.

Win win solution

You should consider that if (for example) Markor audio permission didn't exist, for attaching voices, we should record by another app then import to Markor.
