In response to the Guardian report that major Internet companies including Microsoft, Facebook, Apple, Google, YouTube, Skype, Yahoo, PalTalk, and AOL, have apparently been providing sensitive user data to the National Security Agency (NSA), FSF executive director John Sullivan made the following statement:

Massive privacy intrusions like this are to be expected when people shift from storing their media locally and using local software, to storing them on other people's servers and using hosted (Web) applications. Giants like Microsoft, Facebook and Google are vulnerable to government requests for user data, and there are better, more secure ways to share information online. Free software projects like GNU MediaGoblin, StatusNet, Diaspora, pump.io, Tahoe-LAFS, FreedomBox and SparkleShare are hard at work creating a less centralized world where users retain control over both their media and the software used to access it, while still getting the social and convenience benefits of the giant centralized -- and compromised -- services.

pump.io
A federated microblogging platform.


Friendica
A decentralised social network and Facebook alternative providing federation and connections with several other networks


Cloud storage

Tahoe-LAFS
A great system for system administrators to store your data securely in a distributed file-system with end-to-end security. Tahoe-LAFS integrates encryption, redundancy and data-integrity which prevents the storage-provider from accessing your data.


ownCloud
A Web application for storage and synchronization of files, calendars and contacts on your server.


Red Matrix
Content management and personal cloud server with decentralised identity (e.g. network wide single sign-on and access control) and privacy enhanced distributed social networking.

Jitsi
Encrypted text, voice, and video messaging for multiple platforms.


Linphone
Encrypted voice and video chat client for multiple platforms.


Mumble
A suitable replacement for TeamSpeak, Ventrillo, Skype, Google Hangout (and others). Encryption enabled by default, enables group voice chat.


Web browser

Gnuzilla IceCat
Suitable replacement for Google Chrome, Microsoft Internet Explorer and others. Comes with privacy features turned on, and LibreJS (and more) for disabling non-free JavaScript code, FaceBook "like" buttons and other things.


Instant messaging

Pidgin
Free universal instant messaging client.


Psi Plus
Multi-platform IM client for power users with built-in OTR support.


TorChat
TorChat is a decentralized anonymous instant messenger that uses Tor as its underlying network.


Anonymizing network

Gnunet
GNUnet is a secure, trust-based peer-to-peer framework. A first service implemented on top of the networking layer allows anonymous censorship-resistant file-sharing. The goal of the GNUnet project is to become the ultimate system for free information exchange in a world hostile toward uncontrolled communication.


Tor
When used with encryption, this helps anonymize and secure your Internet traffic.


Encryption and GPG

GPG
The encryption program.


Gpa
The GNU Privacy Assistant is a simple and friendly graphical interface to GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG). This makes it easy to create and manage your keys and key ring!


Enigmail
Want to encrypt your emails? Simply use the Enigmail extension to Icedove!


Category/Security/encryption
Check out all of the encryption packages in the Directory!


Web browser add-ons

HTTPS-Everywhere
Encrypt your communications from thousands of websites by enforcing HTTPS Everywhere.


Request Policy
This addon prevents all connections to external domains or IPs from any website you visit, this means no connections to external advertisement hosters, analytics not on their servers and more things that you might not want to connect to or load. Saves bandwidth and privacy.


NoScript
Install NoScript and enable ‘Forbid scripts globally’ to improve the security of your browser by preventing 0day JavaScript attacks. This is a drastic option as it will render many websites unusable as they rely heavily on JavaScript. NoScript offers a whitelist you can use to selectively enable JavaScript for sites you trust, but this is considered especially bad for your anonymity if you're using NoScript with Tor.


Adblock Edge
Block advertisements and trackers across the web with filter subscriptions.
