On the occasion of Data Privacy Day our team shared their tips to get more privacy in everyday life
Did you miss the Data Privacy Day last week? If you navigated the web last Friday, you might have seen a great number of publications talking about data privacy. The Data Privacy Day dates back to 28 January 1981 when “The Convention for the Protection of Individuals with regard to Automatic Processing of Personal Data” was signed by the Council of Europe. Since then, the Data Privacy Day has become international with the purpose to spread awareness around the data protection for the professional as well as for everyday internet use.
For the occasion, our team had a long conversation about their daily habits to protect their data. As a result, we have collected the privacy tips from very basic to more sophisticated ones, from a “no harm” approach to some radical data protection habits. They are all different as everyone in our team: the one thing gathers them is that they help to make the internet a safer place. Will you try to apply some of them? Read our team tips in our community forum or in Medium.
/e/OS supports 249 devices!
Our mobile team has been hard at work to support and upgrade as many phones as possible. Thanks to our developers and contributors, we now support 249 phones with /e/OS! We have more than doubled the number of phones supported in a year’s time. In our supported devices list, you will find old and reliable phones like the Nexus 4 or the Galaxy Note 10, or newer phones like the Fairphone 4 or the Poco X3 Pro released with Android 11. In addition, we made changes to our code base to remove issues we had with some upgrades.
We are thrilled to support such a wide range of compatible phones and give you many options to regain your privacy on your phone.
Find all the information on each compatible smartphone in our documentation and switch to /e/OS!

User’s data privacy and finding alternatives to regain control over our data has never been a more pressing issue than it is today. The timing is great to build something new!
