A Curated List of Cloud Apps That Respect Your Data
In the era of online behavior tracking and personalized ad placements, it is essential to move to apps that respect and protect your personal information.
Privacyfirstapps.com offers a curated list of cloud apps that puts your privacy first.
No self-hosting. No complex set up. Everything on the cloud, and free!
Why Privacy Matters?
The online services and apps you use and the websites you visit collect a ton of data about you and your online behaviour to show personalized ads. The thought of someone constantly tracking your online behaviour and psychologically influencing you to form opinions and make purchasing decisions is scary. But, if you act now, you can take back a sizeable portion of what you share with these trackers. To avoid this, you should switch to using apps that puts your privacy first.
By switching to privacy-focused alternatives of your existing apps, you will get better control of your personal data and prevent them from being misused.
A powerful, secure messenger that is powered by end-to-end encryption
An ad-free GMail alternative that offers you an encrypted email service
A Chromium-based browser with ad blockers and built-in Private Window powered by Tor
