Hello to all! Newbie here and I’m looking forward to learn as much as I can. To be honest, it has been quite mentally and emotionally challenging, but I want to fight this fight.
As of the moment the only devices I have are Apple. I really would like to use GrapheneOS but I am unable to get a Pixel anytime soon. I would love to hear everyone’s thoughts on the feasibility of privacy on iOS. I’ve done some reading around and apparently Apple ‘sandboxes’ all applications and that’s a good thing? But, I also know that iOS isn’t open-source so I’m really gambling here aren’t I?
Regarding my threat model, I guess I want to be private as much as possible. I want my thoughts to myself, I want to protect human integrity and creativity and know that my data isn’t being mined to feed some algorithm that boxes me in some echo chamber. This is something I truly have a deep existential connection with. I understand that in this day and age this will be tough.
The pressure is intensified all the more because distanced learning leaves me prey to Google products.
With all that said, I am here and I’m all ears. I look forward to you all.
