a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Which is the best, most private secured cloud storage? 2 years and 8 months ago
I've not tried it but SpiderOak claims to be a "zero-knowledge" cloud storage service. Here's a thorough review of it: http://arstechnica.com/business/2012/04/...
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling your opinion of "Blur" and "PrivDog" 2 years and 8 months ago
Just found a mention of PrivDog in this follow-up to the Lenovo/Superfish/Komodia scandal:
https://www.eff.org/es/deeplinks/2015/02...

From the article:

"Like Komodia’s software, PrivDog installs a root certificate when it’s installed, which it then uses to sign the certificates it intercepts. However, a bug in certain versions of PrivDog cause it to sign all certificates, whether they’re valid or not. Simply put, this means that any certificate your browser sees while PrivDog is installed could be the result of a man-in-the-middle attack, and you’d have no way of knowing."

I don't know if version 2.2.0.17 is vulnerable or not but personally I'd avoid it.
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Why does !enfr no longer lead to WordReference but to Google Translate? 2 years and 8 months ago
Not that I'm aware of. I guess you've got into the habit of using !enfr but !wref seems to be the best one for you now.
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Turn ads off by default 2 years and 8 months ago
Many websites only let you turn off ads if you pay for a premium account so I think DDG is already generous in allow users to turn them off for free.

I'm sure they'd prefer to not have to show sponsored links/ads by default but the way they currently do it is fine in my opinion if it means they can keep funding the service they provide.
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Add direct download for DDG app APK 2 years and 8 months ago
Thanks. I already have the app and get updates through F-Droid. I meant the direct download link should be included on the https://duckduckgo.com/app page to make it easy-to-find for other users.
a comment on the General Rambling Add direct download for DDG app APK 2 years and 8 months ago
On the mobile app download page the Android link goes to the Google Play store. For people who don't use the Google store it would be good to have either a direct download link to the APK, or a link to the F-Droid DDG page (which includes a direct link): https://f-droid.org/repository/browse/?f...
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Why does !enfr no longer lead to WordReference but to Google Translate? 2 years and 8 months ago
Did !enfr previously lead to WordReference? According to https://duckduckgo.com/bang.html it's correct that it goes to Google Translate (English to French).

For WordReference, the bangs currently in use are:

WordReference (!wordreference)
WordReference (!wrpten)
WordReference (!wresfr)
WordReference (!wren)
WordReference (!wresen)
WordReference (!writ)
WordReference (!wr)
WordReference (!wrenpt)
WordReference en->fr (!wref)
WordReference en->it (!wrenit)
WordReference fr->en (!wrfe)
WordReference it->en (!writen)
WordReference English Spanish (!wrenes)
WordReference English-Spanish (!wres)

Which version of Android is it? You can find out in Settings -> (scroll to bottom) About phone -> "Android version" or "Firmware version"
