/e/ is a complete mobile ecosystem
We could have just focused on an OS, but apps and online services are critical components of a smartphone experience, too.
/e/ consists in a mobile operating system (OS) and carefully selected applications, together forming a privacy-enabled internal environment for mobile phones.
Combined with online services, such as a search engine, email, storage and other online tools, it creates a unique environment privacy-in privacy-out.
How is it different?
1. Our business model does not rely on selling your data to the best offering: we do not scan your data, access your data or track you hundreds times a day.
2. Because we are Open Source, our code is available for evaluation: we have nothing to hide and if you find any piece of code sending personal data, let us know, we will fix it.
3. We rely on Open Source apps, sharing similar vision and principles around personal data and user privacy.
4. /e/ is about freedom and choice: any existing Android application can be used. We go further by highlighting how many built-in trackers are hidden within each app, so you know in advance of a potential threat to your data.
At the core, the operating system
/e/ is an “unGoogled” version of Android OS.
It has an Android OS core, truly open source, with no Google apps or Google services accessing your personal data. It is compatible with all your favourite Android apps.
Get things done on the go
Your smartphone is like your swiss army knife and you expect to use it throughout your day to help you get things done.
Don’t worry, with /e/ you’ll find a set of carefully selected apps to cover your most common needs, personal and professional: stay in touch with your inbox, plan your week ahead, chat with your friends and coworkers, browse the web, check the weather, check your intinerary for your next meeting…
All the apps are based on open source bricks. We improve their design and experience to make them look stellar and easy to use daily.
Learn about apps privacy
In a blink of an eye, /e/ can decipher the app code for you: you can see which and how many trackers are in the app. It also documents the amounts of permissions the app requires to operate. With an easy to read scoring, you can see which apps are safe and which ones should be avoided.
