Finally, I have deleted my #Google account today!
It was a long an challenging breakup. It started roughly 2 years ago, when I was not able to ignore anymore that Google started switching to the #darkside.
You can easily guess which social network I use instead of #googleplus. [Yes, I use and #diaspora* .]
Instead of #gmail, I use the email account provided by my workplace and #disroot for personal emails.
I chat by using #xmpp (via clients #conversations and #gajim using #omemo for #encryption).
I use #davdroid to synchronize my contact list, calendar and tasklist to my #moblie.
Instead of #chrome, I use #firefox, #torbrowser, #iceweasel, and #icecat.
Instead of #webmail, use #thundebird, #icedove and #k9 email clients.
I use #nextcloud and #syncthing, instead of #googledrive.
For #searching, I sue #duckduckgo and #searx.
Instead of #android, I use #replicant.
I'm also grateful to @Tiberiu C. Turbureanu (from #technoethical) for helping me fixing my broken replicant install.
The great developers of the wonderful privacy-respecting, hackable metasearch engine, give us a new release, which features:
Btw., the server searx.me seems to get slower and slower, because too many people use it. Please consider to use other entities of searx and - if you care for your privacy - use different servers alternating. There is a simple hack to automatically change the searx entity to use with every search, see here, here, and here.

In a failed attempt to improve users personal privacy, DuckDuckGo jumps from the frying pan straight into the fire. With the motto
Google Search -> DuckDuckGo (free)I understand, that they advertise their own service here. And while I do believe, that DuckDuckGo does not cheat and keeps your searches private, as a user, one cannot prove it. In any case, one just replaces one centralised search machine with another one. Better use a decentralised service, such as meta search engine Searx.
Let's start off with the easiest one! Switching to DuckDuckGo not only keeps your searches private but also gives you extra advantages such as our bang shortcuts, handy Instant Answers, and knowing you're not trapped in a filter bubble.
Android -> iOS (paid)This is certainly the worst recommendation in their list. I had to check the date of the article, when I read this. Aprils Fool's Day? I'm certainly not a fan of Android and I'm not an Android user anymore, but going for a much more restrictive jail is just stupid. Android has at least relatively free versions, e.g. Replicant. iOS, in contrast, is a carcel with beautifully painted walls. Very high walls with perfectly styled barbed wire on top. Even the most proprietary variants of Android let you at least install free software from F-Droid.org.
The most popular alternative to Android is of course iOS, which offers easy device encryption and encrypted messaging via iMessage by default. We also have tips to increase privacy protection on your iPhone or iPad.
If you don't want to use Android anymore, like myself, better go for a free alternative, e.g. support the Librem 5 crowdfunding, or the Pyra handheld or the ZeroPhone, all three running the free Debian operating system.
Google Allo -> Signal (free)Again, they recommend to leave one centralised service for another one. And one, that even wants your phone number, otherwise you can't use it. And one, that does not yet have a decent client for Linux. There are messengers around that are federated or completely decentralised, that do not force you give them your phone number, and that have native clients for all major operating systems. My recommendation is XMPP. If you are on Linux, use e.g. Gajim, on Android the best app is probably Conversations, for iOS there is ChatSecure and so on. Alternatives to XMPP are Ring, Matrix and more recently Wire.
There are several services offering private messaging but, as we've mentioned before, Signal gets our recommendation. It offers free, end-to-end encryption for both messages and private calls. It's also recommended by Edward Snowden and renowned security expert Bruce Schneier, among others.
Benjamin Franklin wrote in 1755:
Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.One should also not give up libre software, which is essential in many ways, to purchase a little perceived safety or privacy through non-free or centralised services.

Science Search Engines
A question was posted today about alternatives to Google Scholar and thought a list of responses is worth sharing. Please add more in the comments if you know of other alternatives.
Two metasearch engines offer a science interface:
- SearX: https://searx.me/ ("Science" is listed under advanced settings; list of SearX instances https://github.com/asciimoo/searx/wiki/Searx-instances, including many onion sites)
- MetaGer: https://metager.de/en (or onion site: http://b7cxf4dkdsko6ah2.onion/en)
