TLDR: I do fully support that move, since we cannot expect beginners to jump from 0 to 100 in days - remember it took us months & years. I feel thinkprivacy is going to be a great step in achieving that guidance!
A privacy advocate myself, working full time in the scene, it’s always been a struggle how to approach friends and family.
It’s these two extremes we’re all trying to connect: People who don’t give a sh*t and people who do care, and they do care very strongly. But that gap is enormous!!
Let’s take the webbrowser for example, having a friend uninstall Chrome is one thing, but what should he install as a replacement? Firefox with all about:config settings? no way, he won’t do that, it’s too complicated, it’s too big of a step!
What did I do? I recommended Brave. And I rarely say this publicly - since hardcore privacy enthusiasts shudder and rage whenever Brave is mentioned as a privacy alternative, and I understand their concerns. But for a newbie in the field of tech & privacy, for all our un-savvy mums & dads, it is a great option! One click, all set up. Ad-Blockers and basic anti fingerprinting mechanisms included.
Nobody of us has arrived where we are today in a matter of weeks. It took me, and you for sure, months and years to come to the point where we are today. It is unfair to expect others to make the giant leaps we made in a matter of hours.
I fully support your move. You are creating a space where it’s okay to talk about all the steps in between (Brave) until people mature enough to move to the real solutions (hardened FF). I applaud your work in doing that - can’t wait for the day where I can simply share https://thinkprivacy.io/ to my newbie friends and know they won’t feel overwhelmed (as some do with privacytools atm).
