Hey everyone! Massive thanks to safing.io for offering this perk to all of you - we never even asked them to, and I thought it’d be a great opportunity for all of us to play around with it to see how it works.
Techlore Warning: SPN is in alpha and should not currently be relied on for people needing the utmost privacy/security - this is simply a way for you to test out a service for fun.
To claim one of the 50 codes, just leave a comment below with your all-time favorite privacy or security tool, and I’ll be DMing the first 50 people a code in the coming days.
My all-time favorite tool is NextDNS as it really helped me gain insight as to what was happening regarding my network activity especially in the early stages of my journey. I still use it to this day which is why I’m super excited to try Portmaster!
Gracias to Safing as well
Brave I use most at the moment. Staking my claim for one of the SPN codes.
Talking of dVPNs, does anybody have opinions on Mysterium? It’s open source and in F-Droid, which is a plus, and you can self-host nodes in the network, but I don’t know anything about whether or not the underlying design and implementation is good.
Hello Henry and the safing team ! It’s really great to see you interviewed by Henry. I followed the 2 projects portmaster and SPN since probably 2 years now. I buy sometimes SPN subscription to see the work done over the months. I use portmaster since 2 years as well and it improved a lots ! For me, it’s a must have on an operation system. One feature you not said about is the filters lists at the portmaster level ( same concept as ublock but for the whole system ) and you can add custom lists as well.
I’d love to give the SPN a spin I’ve read that there might be some performance issues in regards to bandwidth, however I always wanted to see for myself and didn’t have the chance as of now.
As for my favorite privacy tool or rather project, it is a bit of a tough question. My all time favorite would be arkenfox, I believe. I feel like it’s one of the best defenses against privacy invasive sites, while also being daily drivable. And additionally is completely open and less of a compromise than brave with their cryptocurrency stuff. So, yeah, cheers
