Privacy Guides

Your central privacy and security resource to protect yourself online.

About

Privacy Guides is a socially motivated website that provides information for protecting your data security and privacy. Our mission is to inform the public about the value of digital privacy, and global government initiatives which aim to monitor your online activity. We are a non-profit collective operated entirely by volunteer team members and contributors. Our website is free of advertisements and not affiliated with any of the listed providers.

The current list of team members can be found here. Additionally, many people have made contributions to the project, and you can too!

Featured on: Tweakers, The New York Times, and Wired

Contributing

All contributors to the site are listed here. If you have contributed to the website or project, please add yourself to the list or ask @jonaharagon to make the change.

Alternative Networks

Note

Most hidden service providers are not very extensively used or tested, which is why we strongly recommend Tor. Using other networks could be more likely to endanger your anonymity, so make sure you know what you're doing.

Developing

Open in GitHub Codespaces

Committing to this repository requires signing your commits (git config commit.gpgsign true) unless you are making edits via the GitHub.com text editor interface. As of August 2022 the preferred signing method is SSH commit signatures, but GPG signing is also acceptable. You should add your signing key to your GitHub profile.

With mkdocs-material

  1. Install required packages: pip install mkdocs-material
  2. Run a local preview of the English site: ./run.sh --cmd=mkdocs

With mkdocs-material-insiders

This website uses mkdocs-material-insiders which offers additional functionality over the open-source mkdocs-material project. For obvious reasons we cannot distribute access to the insiders repository.

Team members should clone the repository with mkdocs-material-insiders directly. This method is identical to production:

  1. Clone this repository and submodules: git clone --recurse-submodules https://github.com/privacyguides/privacyguides.org.git
  2. Enable SSH commit verification with our local .allowed_signers file: git config gpg.ssh.allowedSignersFile .allowed_signers
  3. Install Python 3.12.
  4. Install pipenv: pip install pipenv
  5. Install dependencies: pipenv install --dev (install Pillow and CairoSVG as well to generate social cards)
  6. Serve the site locally: ./run.sh --insiders (set CARDS=true to generate social cards)
    • The site will be available at http://localhost:8000
    • You can build the site locally with ./run.sh --insiders --build
    • This version of the site should be identical to the live, production version

If you commit to main with commits signed with your SSH key, you should add your SSH key to .allowed_signers in this repo.

Local Translated Site Builds

  1. Install the Crowdin CLI Tool (brew install crowdin)
  2. Set the CROWDIN_PERSONAL_TOKEN environment variable to your Crowdin personal access token
  3. Run crowdin download in the root of this repo
  4. Serve the site locally: ./run.sh --insiders --lang=fr (replacing fr with the appropriate language in /config)

Translations downloaded from Crowdin are .gitignore'd, so any local changes to the translated site cannot be committed to this repo. Actual modifications need to be made on Crowdin. As an alternative to steps 1-3, you can copy the folders from privacyguides/i18n to the root of this repo to obtain the translated files.

Releasing

It is required to create a GitHub release to publish the current site to privacyguides.org. The current main branch can be previewed at https://main.staging.privacyguides.dev prior to release.

  1. Create a new tag: git tag -s YYYY.MM.DD -m 'Some message'
    • Tag numbering: YYYY.MM.DD - if two+ releases are published on the same day, append short commit sha to next release, e.g. YYYY.MM.DD-6aa14e8
    • Enable GPG tag signing by default (git config tag.gpgSign true) to avoid missing signatures
  2. Push the tag to GitHub: git push --tags
  3. A GitHub Release will be automatically created and deployed to the live site.
    • You may wish to manually check or edit the release changelog/title after it is published for accuracy.

Add your contributions

This project follows the all-contributors specification. Contributions of any kind welcome, including contributions to Privacy Guides outside of this repo, and contributions that aren't content related (like sharing ideas for Privacy Guides, promoting the project, answering questions on the forum, etc.).

CLI to generate this table:

npx --package all-contributors-cli -- npx all-contributors generate

CLI to add a contributor:

npx --package all-contributors-cli -- npx all-contributors add <username> <contribution>

See this table for valid contribution reasons, comma-separated. Do not use the content code for contributors to the website, use docs instead (this way it will automatically link to their commits). Example:

npx --package all-contributors-cli -- npx all-contributors add jonaharagon docs,research,question
