@switchingsocial "ProtonVPN hides the metadata from your ISP" wow now they are in control over the metadata... makes it not better than without...

@jr

Well, I just meant any VPN does this, I was trying to explain what a VPN was in one short phrase.

@switchingsocial yes and that's why I don't like when people recommend or advertise VPN... they help exactly nothing in privacy sense... they just help to come around Geo Blocking...

@jr

Well, it depends on whether you trust your ISP or your VPN more.

Some ISPs (especially larger companies) have an official policy of selling metadata to advertisers.

@switchingsocial @jr
I would recommend Tor - not a VPN. As you need to trust the VPN now, instead of the ISP. So nothing changes when using VPN.

@PrivacyBlog @switchingsocial @jr What about an privat VPN server @ home (wireguard)? Not really anonym but what is 100% anonym today...

@koetpi @PrivacyBlog @switchingsocial this works... but then the metadata runs again through your ISP...

@switchingsocial @Carnet carnet on my android doesn't remember my notes even when I sync with my nextcloud and ideas why? When I close the app it all disappear and goes back to default demo notes

@tursiops since which version ? Does it happen only when you sync notes ?

@Carnet I got the latest version from f-droid I also tried locally but the notes also vanish after I close the app

@tursiops can you check if they are in the "browser" part ?

@Carnet they are not in either recent or browser part

@tursiops woo really weird. Can you go in the app settings and tell me what the storage folder is ?

@Carnet storage/emulated/0/quicknote when I clicked on it it asked me to authorize it let me check again maybe it just didn't have to right to write

@Carnet OK it was that. Strange that it didn't ask me for permission when I installed it

@tursiops mine for example doesn't require storage, so I'm not sure the bug comes from here

@tursiops what was the original folder ? It shouldn't need the storage permission to access /sdcard/Android/data/com.spisoft.quicknote

@Carnet well my phone doesn't have an sd card so that's why it needs local storage I suppose

@tursiops sdcard is local storage, in fact, it's a trap :P

@tursiops but can you check the default storage you have ? in settings ? was it storage/emulated/0/Android (...) ?

@tursiops is it possible that you installed it one month ago or two, didn't use it, then decided to give it a try ?
