Privacy Tools.io offers up many alternatives to popular apps and programs that provide more privacy than mainstream tools. The list of tools is fairly extensive, in categories such as VPN's (Virtual Private Network), browsers, email, search engines, messenger clients, cloud storage, cloud servers, file sync software, password managers, file encryption, secure operating systems and much more.
