"I became an Anarchist when I decided to drop the theories and stop seeking power. When I stopped concerning myself with those things I realised that true Anarchy is my nature. It is our nature. It is what we were doing before the theories arrived, it is what we were doing before we were encouraged to be in competition with each other."

Here’s a way (on iOS 14) of combining a WireGuard VPN with a separate encrypted DNS resolver: install a DNS profile (encrypted-dns.party) or app (DNSecure, NextDNS, iVerify) and then remove the DNS server(s) in your WireGuard profile.

Ok I need to find more "trancecore" after stumbling on Fail Emotions' "Reborn."

Interesting, AdGuard is coming out with “Virtual Cards.” Sounds similar to Privacy.com.

Nice, Passepartout now supports using a separate, encrypted DNS resolver with a VPN connection. Using a resolver like NextDNS with a VPN just became a bit easier on iOS.

Irregular remindar that whilst Signal might have issues, the fork of it "session" however has been developed by people with strong ties to alt-right shit, as documented here [1]. Please remind yourself of that before(!) sharing their content.

I can always count on an episode of People Just Do Nothing to cheer me up 😄

Looks like PrivateStorage is finally launching later this year.

"PrivateStorage began as a joint venture between Least Authority and Private Internet Access. Together, we facilitated user testing as we investigated improvements to increase the usability of the application. At the end of 2020, the two companies mutually agreed to change their relationship and PrivateStorage is now 100% owned by Least Authority."

“[Mullvad’s] public DNS service (currently in beta) offers DNS over HTTPS (DoH) and DNS over TLS (DoT), with QNAME minimization and basic ad blocking. It has been audited by the security experts at Assured.”

More interesting development...

“Today Brave announced the acquisition of Tailcat, the open search engine developed by the team formerly responsible for the privacy search and browser products at Cliqz, a holding of Hubert Burda Media.”

TIL about a subreddit for "TVs that are too high." I didn't realize this was a massive pet peeve of mine until now lol

My current collection of domain-based filterlists for Pi-hole, ~4M unique. Excessive? Maybe, but I don't mind 😅

nice, I can now get RSS feeds for these email-only newsletters using github.com/leafac/kill-the-new.

Quad9 is moving to Switzerland:

“The Swiss government produced findings of law that Quad9 is exempt from both law enforcement and intelligence data-collection and retention requirements, as well as KYC.”

Help users in Iran reconnect to Signal

“We’ve added support in Signal for a simple TLS proxy that is easy to set up, can be used to bypass the network block, and will securely route traffic to the Signal service.”

Interesting new open-source iOS app, ZudVPN. Deploy a personal IKEv2 VPN with Pi-hole to a VPS *from* the app.

- zudvpn.com
- github.com/zudvpn/ZudVPN

Added to encrypted-dns.party for Apple devices:

- Faelix Privacy DoH: faelix.net/ref/dns/#privacy-dn
- Free Radio Munich DoH: ffmuc.net/wiki/doku.php?id=knb

And now looks like there are signed profiles directly from dnsforge.de and get.yepdns.com.
