A place to discuss privacy and freedom in the digital world.
Privacy has become a very important issue in modern society, with companies and governments constantly abusing their power, more and more people are waking up to the importance of digital privacy.
In this community everyone is welcome to post links and discuss topics related to privacy.
- Posting a link to a website containing tracking isn’t great, if contents of the website are behind a paywall maybe copy them into the post
- Don’t promote proprietary software
- Try to keep things on topic
- If you have a question, please try searching for previous discussions, maybe it has already been answered
- Reposts are fine, but should have at least a couple of weeks in between so that the post can reach a new audience
- Be nice :)
much thanks to @gary_host_laptop for the logo design :)

I browse normally by default using Tor network, Cloudflare is a bit slow with the initial validation, but I always get into any website.
Website owners can block users to access via Tor network without using Cloudflare services anyway … so this isn’t any problem about Cloudflare.
I think Google is still the worst with their infinite CAPTCHA validation. Before doing those CAPTCHA validations (which could take you like 10 minutes to complete them all) I rather close the link and ignore it exist, they don’t block, but they make it impossible for Tor users.
you should use a SearX or searXNG instance instead of google anyway.
I never use Google search engine. I use a forked SearX service.
Recaptcha is on more sites than just google
perhaps Buster would make it a bit less of a hassle? https://addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/addon/buster-captcha-solver/
This is so cool, but still not working for me.
I tried it and it worked somewhat, but it still was finky
This is hilarious since the whole point of captcha is to verify if you’re a human
you want more hilarious? you can configure the addon to use Google’s own speech recognition engine.
is this true though? https://chaos.social/@sindastra/108714913157859617:
Also it only does this if you’re using cf proxy which is pointless if you’re running tor.
Well, that’s not entirely wrong: the website owner is responsible for contracting with Cloudflare in the first place.
