Shelter is an app we can use to protect us from BigBrother apps.
1- is there anything that is NOT working about Shelter (with /e/) ?
Are there any apps that don’t work properly in the “work” profile?
2- is it true that the apps that we install in the “work” profile that is
created by Shelter cannot at the present moment be updated?
3- does anybody know if anybody is working to try to fix point #2?
4- shouldn’t /e/ install Shelter by default, and explain in plain terms
to everybody why and how we should create a different “contacts” file
(with fewer contacts and with fewer details about those contacts)
that we can “feed” to some data-hungry apps that we might need
to use even if it would be better to avoid using them, like Whatsapp?
And while I’m at it: How can I export a file with my (active) Whatsapp
contacts and, even more important, my groups from Whatsapp?
5- would it make sense to install other apps with maps (car sharing,
bike sharing, public transport, ride hailing apps etc) and/or trackers
in the “work” profile created by Shelter, or would I be shooting myself
in the foot, giving access to data from these apps to the most pernicious
app of them all, the one I wanted to “isolate” in the first place, i.e. Whatsapp?
What is the best way to do it? Put everything that is safe in one profile
and everything which leaks in the other? Or isolate only the worst app(s)?
6- once we install (“copy”) an app in the “work” profile created by
Shelter, is it possible to uninstall the original copy of that app or not?
