Worth mentioning that the team behind PT.io moved to https://privacyguides.org almost a year ago, so this might only apply to whoever is running PT.io at the moment. From their subr*ddit:

What happened to privacytools.io?

The domain name is currently redirecting to our new homepage. That domain name is currently registered and controlled by the original founder of PrivacyTools, who has been absent in its operation for a year. This has posed significant technical challenges to the remaining PrivacyTools team, and left the future of PrivacyTools in question.

The team made a decision to migrate to this new domain β€” privacyguides.org β€” in order to hopefully make the transition a lot more smooth. There is no telling if the original domain holder might return, and if we waited until the domain’s expiration, it is likely we would have lost the domain entirely. Losing the domain would have posed massive problems for our SEO rankings, etc., so while we don’t have full control over DNS on the PrivacyTools domain, our control of the webservers allows us to 301 redirect the site to our new domain in the meantime. Hopefully this gives everyone enough time to notice the change, update bookmarks and websites, etc. :)


If someone told you to kill yourself, you should report them. That goes way beyond the β€œbe respectful” rule.


It ought to be fine if you preface it with something like β€œI’m asking this in good faith, and I’m sorry if I inadvertently say anything insensitive”




It breaks websites? Are you talking about the experimental fingerprinting protection in Firefox? By β€œfingerprinting”, I meant the general tracking of unique properties of your browser (settings, add-ons, user agents, etc.), not the Firefox-specific anti-fingerprinting.

I agree that Tor is better in many situations.


In case you don’t already know, Firefox with a separate Tor connection is easier to fingerprint than an unmodified Tor Browser (unless you’ve configured Firefox to camouflage as TB)
