alt->text1 @:meta.F aims to <a href="@:link.dio"> offer around thirty free alternative services</a> to provide a substitute for those services which, once they get hold of us, proceed to feed upon our data.<br /> But there are many other players working to de-google-ify Internet and many other such services.
alt->text2 You will find <a href="#tips" rel="nofollow">below</a>, a list summarizing and supplementing the alternatives presented on the map. It is inspired by <a href="">Prism-Break</a> which promotes other software in more specialized areas.
alt->text3 In the list, each service generally includes a <b>complex website</b> <span aria-hidden="true">(<i class="fa fa-fw fa-cloud"></i>)</span> communicating with <b>software installed on a computer</b> <span aria-hidden="true">(<i class="fa fa-fw fa-server"></i>)</span> which stores personal data and which can be accessed through various <b>home-based tools</b> <span aria-hidden="true">(<i class="fa fa-fw fa-home"></i>)</span>.
alt->text4 So when we use Internet, we must necessarily <b>trust several links in the chain</b> joining us to our personal data online. Unless we self-host, <b>the <i lang="en">cloud</i> is always someone else&quote;s computer</b>. It is therefore important to know who we are being asked to trust and what their software is doing with our data.
