Continuing the discussion from Where was Purism moving?
But this needs explanation.
First, notice that the count for riot varies between 1 and 3, quite possibly unintentionally. Before Librem One was launched, the developer had already attempted to remove or disable the trackers (as can be checked in the repository), but traces remained. Exodus rightly explains “This is not a proof of activity of these trackers”. That’s like removing a switch from the wall and noticing that there’s still an inactive light bulb in the ceiling, saying “We don’t know if there still is a switch for that bulb”.
Second, at least one of the trackers comes from a 3rd party library (Jitsi), so it was not put there by the Riot devs.
Third, those trackers are different from those tracking your path through the web. They are usually there to create statistics of feature use.
Fourth, Riot even has code (removed from Librem Chat here, as no longer relevant) to ask the user for permission to enable those statistics. But the above analyzer cannot take that into account. It just says “I found that this app might track user actions”.
So, to me, all of this was a bit a storm in a teacup.
Like so often in the outraged Internet these days.
