Suggestions for audits/reviews of /e/

dear all,

a question regarding audits/reviews of /e/: I am planning to email several well-known privacy auditors/reviewers, who regularly review apps for privacy, to invite them proactively to do a review/audit of /e/. I think this can only be positive:

  • if there is a positive of /e/, it will be good PR for /e/
  • if problems/issues are found, this will be useful information for the /e/ team and they can work to address these

E.g. in the past there was already this Infosec review.

Do you have any suggestions for other privacy review/audit organizations or initiatives who I could contact in this regard?

I recently saw a video of chris titus (youtuber) where he tried out graphene os. It ended with the conclusion that there are some apps he just couldn’t part with (that dont run on graphene). It would be cool if we could get him to try out /e/ since its similar to graphene without actually restricting the user that much

I am sure infosec-handbook dot eu will do another detailed thorough review, if someone sends them a phone for testing.

He is about to if not already done. I am running GrapheneOS on a Pixel 3a and I am loving it. Do not need any SocMedia apps or any other insecure google S35 compliant apps either. For the weather we have the Mett Office in UK so who needs a weather app in UK?
Check out back to back shoot out when Techlore reviews e and graphene OS’s

Are you not forgetting to mention the other two InfoSec reviews along with:-


Techlore is rated at 4.9 out of 5 and you can then go on to compare his eOS review with another more secure OS

Ah yes nearly forgot - I am 70 you know :upside_down_face: there is another review on that linux BSD site DistroWatch who I must contact today.
Is their any evidence that anything has changed at e due to past reviews? :thinking: :sleeping:

No, 22 months have past without any activity and modification. Except maybe :

  • support of Pie (and 10 is coming),
  • Telegram and Signal have been removed from default apps list,
  • a new Apps Installer has come,
  • MuPDF has been replaced by PDF Viewer Plus,
  • the ecloud free storage space has increased from 50 MB to 1 GB,
  • LibreOffice has been added in ecloud,
  • you can now sync SMS,
  • there is an Easy installer to install /e/ easily,
  • pre-installed phones are sold (especially the Fairphone 3),
  • some calls to google servers have been removed,
  • MicroG is now officially supported which will help to improve the usability of very google-dependant apps that a lot of users aren’t ready to leave,
  • a better translation of the system thanks to weblate,
  • a better documentation and website,
  • a docker image to self-host your data,
  • an important amount of builds (official or unofficial) are being made in order to have a huge list of devices on which /e/ is available,
  • a lot of bugs corrected,
  • and more to come.

No need to try to pin it on /e/ when I and some other users flag your posts for being spam, troll, etc
Another good example of the dishonnest meaning of your posts here.

Is there a “most flagged” badge? Andy would earn it…

Great - @Anonyme that is all to the good.
/e/ support responding to censored and hidden post No22!
So why was my post hidden?
What was wrong with it?
Is /e/ for transparency or against transparency?

@blaes we all know you have a medal or badge for flagging but could you spell out your reasoning for falsely accusing me of dishonesty? Were you the troll flagger who had my post flagged and hidden in under one minute? Now that is clear evidence of a troll in action hiding behind their screen waiting to pounce.

@andrelam reading my post as I type?
As many community members will know /e/ has a bad reputation for lack of transparency and censorship across many forums?
Can you answer why my post above is being hidden from our community?
Can you post here as to why I have to get a post approved before it is posted? Is that the heaviest form of censorship seen on any forum? Did someone get a badge for that?

@Andy1 Your posts are hidden because somebody flagged it. I can understand why. Your comments are often accusing, finger pointing, and non constructive. Why don’t you start your own topic with your concerns, in a polite way, maybe you get some answers. You are still here so you must be interested in the project… Yes /e/ isn’t perfect yet, but it’s a good start.

Indeed the review is nice, it doesn’t only talk about the OS but also what is around.

If you don’t want to use YouTube, use Invidious :
