De-google-ify Internet

List of alternatives


Click on the map to discover all alternatives…

Framasoft aims to offer around thirty free alternative services to provide a substitute for those services which, once they get hold of us, proceed to feed upon our data.
But there are many other players working to de-google-ify Internet and many other such services.

You will find below, a list summarizing and supplementing the alternatives already presented on the home page. It is inspired by Prism-Break which promotes other software in more specialized areas.

In the list, each service generally includes a complex website communicating with software installed on a computer which stores personal data and which can be accessed through various home-based tools .

So when we use Internet, we must necessarily trust several links in the chain joining us to our personal data online. Unless we self-host, the cloud is always someone else's computer. It is therefore important to know who we are being asked to trust and what their software is doing with our data.
