The Guardian Project

app-suggestions

#1

I hope an own /e/ application store will have the guardianproject repo in it.
https://guardianproject.info/apps/
Orbot https://guardianproject.info/apps/orbot/ is needed to use Tor on Android
https://f-droid.org/wiki/page/org.torproject.android
and with Orwall any app can be forced to use the Tor network

My mobile provider didn’t even notice I accidentally exceeded the data limit!

As you may be aware you can also set a data limit warning in settings. Settings >> search in settings ‘Billing cycle’ it will take you to the screen where you can set a data warning limit. That trigger when you exceed the limit set.

I did, but three months ago, beginning with /e/, I unattended uploaded 1G on video to e-cloud, so I really hope in an own /e/ application store the guardianproject repo will be available too, as it is in F-Droid.

This is an issue which we have been investigating on gitlab https://gitlab.e.foundation/e/os/android/issues/15 a fix for the same will be available soon. Thanks for the suggestion to add the app to the repository,


#5

Yes, and while uploading, the data limit was already set, but there was no warning. I gave this example because after three months it is for sure the provider didn’t notice: that is how good this guardianproject is for privacy!

I would like to have this kind of functionality also. My “problem” with these kind of apps that they require rooting. I installed AFWall+ and i feel that i’m in control now, i only used 8Mb mobile data last 2 weeks. Maybe when the bug is gone i can achieve that kind of low data usage, i don’t know. What i do know is that if /e/ succeeds in low mobile data usage, it will be a huge +. I know lots of stories people loosing their complete monthly data bundle and they have no clue why.
