> In the May update Bitwarden brings integration with three popular email forwarding services: SimpleLogin, AnonAddy, and Firefox Relay. These services focus on bringing privacy, and with it, security, to users’ online accounts. The combination of using email aliases they service alongside a password manager adds multiple layers of protection online. With these new Bitwarden integrations, users now have a convenient way to generate both anonymous email addresses and secure passwords for ultimate security.

There seems to have been a rebranding of ProtonMail, how does that sound?

It is very interesting that they use the IPFS protocol, but it is disappointing that only the front-end is open source and that there is no self-hosted solution.

Large enterprises rely on libraries maintained by a single individual, or maybe worse yet: a single vendor. > Individuals or organizations may restrict the use of their technology or EOL versions of their software, posing real challenges to organizations and customers depending on that technology. How can we contribute to the viability and sustainability of open source?

I think I will be using BitWarden for a long time until I am sure that this new process is really safe, but it sure is very convenient.

> The effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and the shock of the invasion of Ukraine has meant that our desire for news and information has become the perfect opportunity for criminals to dupe more victims. Scammers have been actively contacting citizens via calls, text messages or social media platforms to offer high-demand products and services that are actually fraudulent. They will even trick you into donating to fake charities, when in fact your money is going straight into the criminal’s pocket.
