triggered by the new version /e/ dev 0.10 I have been monitoring my internet traffic for a couple of days with Netguard. I can again report that I noticed no traffic to Google servers at all from the /e/ OS, which is very satisfying to me.
I am a very modest user of my smartphone. For more explanation and discussion see Netguard as a safety net around /e/. I would welcome a more structural permanent safety net around /e/ w.r.t. the state of un-googling.
I can share one new finding. I noticed again DNS calls to 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168. I found out that Netguard is causing these. After filling in in Netguard the DNS of my internet provider the calls were gone. In /e/ the DNS is set to ‘follow the provider’.
