Hardened allocator designed for modern systems. It has integration into Android's Bionic libc and can be used externally with musl and glibc as a dynamic library for use on other Linux-based platforms. It will gain more portability / integration over time. (by GrapheneOS)

  • How safe is a phone with lineage os installed from an attacker with physical access to my phone?
    reddit.com/r/LineageOS | 2021-09-18
    Installing a keylogger or other software: Pretty simple. /system partition is not protected or encrypted and can be exchanged or modified, no hacking needed. The only way around it is using a phone/rom that supports relocking the bootloader with custom keys, namely GrapheneOS.

    LineageOS is really good. I use it on my phone and I love it because I can get Android 11 on a second-hand model I bought for a cheap price, despite the parent company having gone bankrupt a while ago. In terms of privacy gains, though, it will depend on your usage, and it's not the focus of the project. By default, it doesn't come with Google services, but you can install them if you want. What you'll gain in privacy is that you won't get the manufacturer's preinstalled apps, that may or may not harvest data. One thing to note about using custom ROMs (LineageOS or any other ROM), is that the quality of the pictures you'll take with your camera will likely decrease, because of the lack of the manufacturer's firmware. If you want a privacy-focused ROM, look at GrapheneOS or /e/ (shittiest name ever, good luck finding it in a search engine).

    And, I might add, consider GrapheneOS and CalyxOS as alternative operating systems for your Pixel phone.


  • Let's make this about more than Apple on Monday Sept 13. Let's show up and promote privacy and digital freedom!
    I know this is such a minor thing, but it’d be really good if you could hyperlink most of the stuff mentioned here- Signal, Graphene OS etc just so that people who’s interest is piqued can have it easily accessible?
  • What is the most important cell phone for someone who cares a lot about their safety?
    I guess you want to write 'privacy', not safety or maybe in a wider meaning safety can be understood in a way a whistle blower wants yo protect himself. Some say get a Pixel phone and install GrapheneOS. If you want to ask users, there is a dedicated subreddit: /r/GrapheneOS
