Get a backup for your master passwords that is secured by other people than you. Yes, technically it opens a whole new attack vector due to trusting this other person/organisation, but if something really happens to you, you might be able to get your life back.
I mean, having all your stuff encrypted with highly sophisticated encryption algorithms and passwords. Having your backups secure and encrypted in multiple locations ready for recovery and keeping your logins secured with a pin protected private key on a smartcard is all nice, but have you considered what happens when you get hit by a bus and lose your memory? You won't be able to access anything. No accounts, not pictures, no memories of what you spend so much time on. Mhm…

@glsbank gibt es eigentlich irgendwelche Fortschritte beim Bereitstellen der "GLS mbank"-App ohne Playstore?
Solche Petitionen zeigen, wie weit das Brainwashing mit #Microsoft schon vorangeschritten ist. Ein Verzicht würde laut Aussage des Petitionsführers bedeuten: „Dieses Verbot würde uns in unserem Schulalltag in die Steinzeit zurückwerfen“. Das Gegenteil ist der Fall, wir würden eine Epoche der digitalen Unmündigkeit hinter uns lassen.
Two days ago I finally installed the f-droid privileged extension to my LineageOS. And I can say already that I feel at least 10 times happier with the experience.
Now the last remaining bastions of manual updates: My banking app, my alarm and Signal. Lets see if I can get them under control as well.

By the way, I actually don't mind cloud services in general. The idea of outsourcing services is almost as old as humanity.
There is nothing wrong with switching from a self-hosted postgresql to a hosted version. Or to host your website on a web space.
But to act as if cloud providers would ride on unicorns and do the impossible, is just utter nonsense.
And looking at IPv6 on major cloud providers make one question the competence of the expert teams…
This is utterly ridiculous. If IT is too complex to be handled by reasonably competent staff, than the answer can't be "we give it only to experts that rob us", but to provide better tools that people can handle and are still secure.
What a mess.
I'm really unimpressed by what was pushed there. What does that even mean for education at the university when the argument is "everything is too complex and we have to hand that over to the expert teams of cloud providers"? Should university education boil down to AWS and Azure training camps?
I mean, what's the vision if the answer is "it's too complex so we have to hand it over to cloud providers"? It removes the academic purpose, the idea that you try to understand the greater picture.
So I guess the future is built on promises that no one reads and everyone gets shoved down their throat. What a bright image. Especially when we talk about University education and science.
Questions like "Shouldn't we built better UX and usability for tools that can run everywhere and keep the user's data ownership either by encryption or by device onwership?" were simply put down with "well, when those tools exist we would love to support them" but sadly they weren't keen to look at examples…
Today went to a University event, that tried to talk about how the University and companies handled switch to remote work/education. However, at least the company part, was basically a Microsoft advertisement by a consultant company. :/
"Move everything to the cloud" and when they said "cloud" they meant Microsoft. Not even anyone else, but Microsoft and only Microsoft. And that's then called digitalisation. 🙈
Asking about data sovereignty and depends the answer was "contracts".
Huh. I never thought about just removing the fence before.
