Regain your privacy! Adopt /e/ the unGoogled mobile OS and online servicesphone

Default browser?
Did you check browser-settings → content languages?
Any vpn or other redirection services active?
Search engine settings maybe?

No VPN. All set to English. Search engine is DuckDuckGo . I use the browser that is part of e/os, also have installed Thor browser.
Also the Google opens up all in German asking for the account information. I did not load Google App, it is what was loaded when I got the phone…

Hi @Mehdi. Please can you clarify?

Murena? self installed? did the phone have a history?

The best way to share your device and build is

Settings > About phone > Android version > /e/ version > Long press, will copy to clipboard.

Bought the phone with degoogled e/OS installed already.
The Andriof version is 1. 1-r-20220627199800-stable-emerald
Based version MOLY.LR12A.R3.MP.V153.7

This sounds really irregular. As a purchased phone I think you should ask helpdesk@e.email.

Is it possible that during initial setup, someone selected Language: English / Region: Germany?

Or is the browser set to the (incorrect) region/language? (For instance, if someone in Germany previously responded “yes” to a browser popup that wanted location.)


No, I have already checked. All set up for English.

Do you have “hide my IP” selected in the advanced privacy settings? This routes the phones internet traffic through tor.


That was it. Thanks much. It seams all okay now.
