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 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206. 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’.
Regain your privacy! Adopt /e/ the unGoogled mobile OS and online services
Mhm, on my builds with eOS sources, it’s set to use provider DNS and as fall back using 220.127.116.11
Provider DNS is indeed the default on my /e/ 0.10 dev S7. Using Netguard (local) VPN I presume Netguard is ‘the provider’ for /e/. Seeing the calls to 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124 I presume Netguard has these as defaults, which can be overruled in de Netguard GUI. Unfortunately with Netguard I seem to be unable to see the DNS that /e/ is using when Netguard is not active…
I know /e/ only by the GUI. I did not know there was a fall back DNS programmed. I see 126.96.36.199 in the GUI as the default for specifying another DNS than ‘follow the provider’.
