We need someone who will speak about privacy, because many people still don't see all dangers of the Internet. We have many security experts and many tech blogs for geeks, but what about lamers? Who will explain the basic privacy issues to ordinary users like me and you?

We need a community of people interested in privacy, privacy warriors, who will teach other users to protect their personal space. And I'll be happy to support everyone who's ready for this: tips, guides, translations, anything what you need to help users to fight for privacy.

Just imagine: you upload a someone's photo to a special search engine and get his profile on social networks with links to some of his friends. Creepy... But it's real, at least for VK users. popular FindFace is already closed to ordinary users, but new SearchFace works fine.

"Companies should be custodians of our data. They should not own it or monetize it. In fact, they should go out of their way to keep our data safe. The loss of our privacy is a loss for society and democracy.", – Jon von Tetzchner, co-founder/CEO of Vivaldi Technologies, about current privacy issues.

Official +AdBlock's comment on proposed Chrome changes:
– the proposed changes will make extensions safer and users more secure; it's good
– Google is collaborating with developers and asking for feedback; it's good too
– we’re not panicking and hope that any eventual changes to Chrome will benefit all users without overly limiting the utility of extensions

The Internet is the greatest invention ever, because only Internet can connect people around the world. However, some governments (for some reasons) seek to isolate their countries from the world. We can work together. Just give us this opportunity!

What AdGuard team thinks about proposed changes of Google Chrome extension platform:
– Google don't try to kill ad blockers, they just want to make extensions more secure and private
– ad blocking extensions will become worse
– standalone apps will continue to work as before
