4≋ Zane Moreign's Simple_Safety™ Digital_Privacy_&_Survival_Kit™ (DPSK™)

for Windows 10 & 11, Linux, Mac, Android, iOS

These FREE/LIBRE Third-Party Offerings ("TPO") are — (1) simple to use, (2) easy to install/setup, (3) cross-platform (i.e., Windows and *nix, and also Mac), (4) pro-privacy, (5) with encryption … etc., … basically, keep us safe online.

The TPO are grouped together into functional focus sections, which together make up the complete DPSK™. For simplicity, it is kept up to date with concise choices [remember: "cutting thru the noise"].

This new DPSK™ launched in 2021 … is the result of years of evolution & growth expanding upon the vision of the initial "Zane's Simple_Safety™ Toolkit FREE for Friends-n-Family" [that started in 2017 and is End-of-Life (EOL) 2020].

~~~ Zane's Simple_Safety™ Toolkit FREE for Friends-n-Family … End-of-Life (EOL) 2020 ~~~

  • After the surge of ransomware in 2016, coupled with the massive Telemetry Gathering in Windows 10, Zane Moreign (of our Incubation Labs) launched his Simple_Safety™ series to offer simple & safer computing tools-n-tips to our Friends-n-Family and Community — for FREE — by carving out some $0 Tools-n-Tips from our commercial Hybrid Decisions® Safer_Computing™ Platform (click here for gist)

  • All credit goes to Zane Moreign for creating this and continuing to make every effort to keep this toolkit up-to-date and current with the latest release of Windows 10, and for getting sponsorship/recognition from us/Hybrid Decisions®, Tor Project, DoD/US Air Force Research Labs, and others.

  • Over the years Zane has evolved his Simple_Safety™ Toolkit … which was like playing whack-a-mole with the constant shifting/changes of Windows10 with every build/release (now, DPSK™: Band-Aids for Windows).

updated Jun 11, 2021, the feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

  • Web browsers: IridiumBrowser.de the better option for Windows that is built on the same Open-Source Chromium codebase that powers Google Chrome & Microsoft Edge browsers. Ungoogled Chromium for Linux. Tor Browser for generic browsing.

  • Search Engine for any browser: metager.org (pulls from multiple search engines), Whoogle-Search (think safer google search, can be selfhosted), we noticed better these superseded DuckDuckGo.

Have linked every suggested product so you can do your due-diligence, educate yourself, and decide for yourself ... am not reinventing the wheel by rehashing what they have already explained.

after significant research ... Initial Release: 2017-Oct
updated Jun 28, 2021, the windows 11 first preview build & again for the next preview ..65

Concise set of Third-Party Offerings ("TPO") that do their best to plug the privacy & other holes in Windows 10 & Windows 11. Some of these TPOs have been around since Windows10 first previewed.

The most comprehensive of the lot — proceed with caution

(CAUTION: This can gut the entire "store/metro apps" thus reducing the noise/chatter — making Windows fly :-)


  • IF you want all of these aspects PLUS a whole lot more, built-in and ready to go … try to get Hybrid Decisions® Safer_Computing™ Operating System SaferOS

  • I CANNOT help anyone get into the HDC-CAP via which you are granted access to SaferOS™, though I am part of their Incubation Labs.

  • I am not being paid to talk about them or any vendor — am doing it so you are aware that there is a company that takes care of all these things and more, a company that helped Microsoft (see their 3 Microsoft Case Studies)
