One of the newer offerings for the De-Googled smartphone crowd is /e/OS, which runs on Murena’s Fairphone and Teracube, as well as some Samsung phones. Looks to be basically along the lines of PureOS and Lineage OS. Obviously not Librem, but better than Android or iOS.
I’ve read support documentation and asked over on the /e/OS forum but haven’t found much info on these relatively basic but important questions. Maybe someone knowledgeable here can offer some input:
What are the best additional steps to take to make a Teracube 2e with /e/OS as secure as possible against remote intrusion?
Are all incoming connections in /e/OS blocked by default? If not, what is the best way to do that?
Would the stock browser be more secure than Brave browser or no? I ask because Brave seems to have had virtually no reported vulnerabilities, compared to Chrome which has had many and which the e/OS browser appears to be based on.
Any other configuration steps that would be recommended?
