Hi PH! Since the Facebook election campaign saga it seems thousands of people are getting more conscious about being more private on the internet, more articles are written about it every day.  A few days ago @iamdylancurran wrote this tweet that went viral, even Edward Snowden retweeted it. https://twitter.com/iamdylancurr... I decided to take that TweetStorm and turn it into a site with simple yet actionable tips for the average non technical user to start gaining some of their freedom back. I tried it to make it as minimal and simple as possible so the avg person that is not used to take actions will take action, this is why there are no VPNS and more advanced stuff but it is a work in progress and anyone can contribute on github...specially for the email and browsing sections. Let me know what you think! PS: design credit goes to the awesome https://www.producthunt.com/post...

@iamdylancurran @surfcoderepeat Funny how you use google tracking code on your website… I especially decided not to do so on my sites. But hey in the end all you want is stats -> profit. Be honest.

@iamdylancurran @serglotz Yep, I am installing matomo on all my sites but it takes time to install it on my server so in the meantime using GA, feel free to contribute here https://github.com/surfer77/beco...

@iamdylancurran @surfcoderepeat I think you don't get it Adam. It is not about replacing "evil" google with something "less evil". It is about value the privacy and therefore not use ANY tracking at all… I don't care about stats #altruism

I've read a few lines about Google and I'm hooked, sharing this with as many people as possible @surfcoderepeat! Was all this info readily available on the tech companies' sites?

I added @iamdylancurran (not sure if he is on PH? I emailed him) as a maker also here (also everywhere on the site) since the site's content is mostly his tweet and I put them on a website to spread awareness of the issues he mentioned + small how to
