The deGoogled OS on the ethical smarpthone!
Videoconferencing is on the rise worldwide with the COVID-19 crisis. But did you know that most videoconferencing software is NOT offering any guarantee about your privacy?
Even some nice open source software such as Jitsi is relying on some Google services.
So we did the effort to fully unGoogle a Jitsi setup, and it’s now available online on a 600Mbps link at visio.ecloud.global.
100% Open Source
And it’s super easy to use, try it now!

I think with privacy being more of a concern for users and hardware vendors looking for Google-free operating systems, /e/ may be successful where so many others have failed.”
At the end of 2017, the /e/ project was unveiled in a series of articles entitled “Leaving Apple & Google: my (/e/) Odyssey” (Part1, Part2, Part3), with a clear promise: making a fully unGoogled and ready-to-use mobile operating system and online services, yet compatible with Android applications…
