Purism Announces "Librem One" As Their Privacy-Minded Software Suite
The Librem One services currently consist of encrypted chat, encrypted email, encrypted VPN, and social media support. These services aren't ad-driven, feature no tracking, and respect user privacy. With no advertisements involved, the cost of the Librem One suite starts out at $7.99 USD per month.
In addition to the initial Chat / Mail / Tunnel (VPN) / Social components, eventually under their subscription plan they tend to offer encrypted cloud storage, encrypted backups, encrypted contact syncing and storage, cryptographic payments, and a pay-as-you-go phone service. These future services are contingent upon enough individuals subscribing/donating to make them a reality.
Librem Chat is based on the Matrix protocol, Librem Social is using Mastodon, and their Librem Tunnel is using Liberty.
Purism is using crowd-funding once again to try to further their offerings. They have a goal of at least 5,000 backers over the next two months. Besides the $7.99 USD monthly user plan is also a $14.99 USD monthly "family pack" plan, among different tiers to "donate to the cause."
