Hi thanks, I'm avoiding the middlemen in both of those...Great move and great alternatives. Still, there are two things I would change.
1. Instead of Dropbox you could use MEGA which is open-source and private friendly. It even supports anonymous payment options like Bitcoin or PaySafeCard.
2. Consider using Quad9 DNS instead of Cloudflare which is better in terms of privacy and even security (malicious sites blocking abilities)
There is no cloudflare at all...So the only reason for using Cloudflare is speed?
I guess it's too late for my brain to work, sorry for that. Got it now, thanks for the explanationThere is no cloudflare at all...
I used to use Google DNS... Then I used to use cloudflare .... But now neither.... My only dns server is myself
Every device (even when I'm mobile I vpn to home) gets the DNS of my unbound/pihole server
Pihole passes these queries on and according to the blocklists deals with accordingly
So unbound is the recursive DNS server, it doesn't have any forward lookups or upstream DNS... All it knows are the root hints and deals with dnssec.... It caches queries, but even when not cached is blisteringly quick.
Hi, running a few machines (work laptop/main desktop/surface pro all on windows 11) (but all have TPM) this regtweak allowed the CPU to be bypassedI am curious as to what method you used to bypass the cpu requirement for Windows 11. Do you like Windows 11? I was OK with it but then encountered an annoying disk issue that compelled me to reinstall Windows 10. Definitely seeing the difference in performance (11 is better).
no worries.... for most people the best would be to use quad9 or cloudflare especially with the additional filtering they provide... e.g malware blocking/cloud filtering, the upsides to these services is ease of use & security the downsides to these services is privacy.I guess it's too late for my brain to work, sorry for that. Got it now, thanks for the explanation
What about Aegis Authenticator and andOTP? they are the best Authenticator for Android phone thats privacyGoogle Authenticator - AndroidOTP (on mobile) & keepass (when on desktop/laptop)
