Privacy Preserving Analytics

F-Droid always avoids tracking users as much as we can.  We will never

require an account, and we have put a lot of
effort into making it hard
for even the f-droid.org server to track users. We also recognize
that usage data has value. It can be used to help show the level of
popularity, and to provide app developers some feedback on what users
like.

After years of moving totally away from data, including disabling
download counts on f-droid.org , we have started an experiment with
tracking usage without tracking users. We are building upon the
work of
Tor Project
and
Guardian Project .
We have enabled access logging on https://search.f-droid.org and
https://mirror.f-droid.org/ for the initial trial. ( Note: search
on f-droid.org could happen... show more

Play Store finally testing simultaneous app downloads | Android Authority

Whether it’s pushing out system updates or getting a new Material Design makeover, the Google Play Store is seemingly in for many changes. Those changes also include simultaneous downloads, according to Android Police.
Simultaneous app downloads is one of those features that probably should have been around from the beginning. That said, some users are finally seeing the feature enabled in the Play Store.
Welcome to the 2000s, Google!

You don’t have to use Google Play for apps on your Android phone.

There’s a free open alternative app store called F-Droid, which is much more privacy-friendly, and which you can install yourself relatively easily.

There’s a simple instruction guide for beginners on switching.social:

There’s a much more detailed guide by @IzzyOnDroid here:

Just updated my OnePlus3 to #LineageOS 16.0 (#Android Pie 9) without any problem, also updated the modem firmware in the course of doing so. If someone wants to update from 15.1 to 16.0 as well and needs the modem firmware let me know, I have a working version (I also confirmed the files inside are that same as in the stock rom of #OnePlus ).


 
I am a bit astonished to find #LineageOS builds for the #Huawai P20 pro and the #Samsung S9+.
I thought that these high end devices were not allowing flashing of #LineageOS anymore.

Do you have one of these running with LN 16.0?

Skype adds screen sharing to its iOS and Android apps | Engadget

Having spruced up its web service, Skype is turning its attention to mobile. Its latest beta feature adds screen sharing to its iOS and Android apps. It may not seem as significant as Skype's other recent iterations, including group calls for 50 people (up from 25) and background blur in video calls, but it gives workers and friends another reason to stay locked in the app.

You can now use your Android phone as a 2FA security key for Google accounts | Venturebeat

At Google Cloud Next 2019 today, Google announced phones running Android 7.0 Nougat and higher can now double as a Fast Identity Online (FIDO) security key. You can thus use your Android phone to protect your personal Google account, and your G Suite, Cloud Identity, and Google Cloud Platform work accounts. (Android tablets aren’t supported — Google specifically limited the functionality since users are more likely to have phones with them.)
Guess who's got an Android 6 phone and an Android 7 tablet.

The Latest Tab now highlights good descriptions

In the F-Droid Android client, the Latest Tab is a place for F-Droid

to showcase apps that pay extra attention to communicating to users.
With the upcoming 1.6 release, the Latest Tab will now only show apps
that meet certain criteria. The goal is to point users to apps where
they can better explore what they do only by looking at it in F-Droid.
There will always be privacy concerns around installing apps, so users
should have a good idea about what they install. This as a tool for
the F-Droid community to encourage app developers to put that extra
effort into explaining what the app does to potential users. All apps
will still be listed in Search and Categories Tabs.

So with the 1.6 release, only apps that include all of the following
pieces in their app metadata will be show on Latest:

Name
Summary
Description
