Three new Privacy-Friendly Apps published (29-10-2018)

Three new apps have been added to our group of Privacy-Friendly Apps. Among these apps are two new games. "2048" is a puzzle game, the goal of which is to reach the number 2048 by sliding the same numbers together. In our mobile version of a classic game "Minesweeper", one has to find all the mines on the playing field without triggering them. The third app “Finance Manager” can be used to monitor personal finances. As with the rest of privacy-friendly apps, the newly added apps are free and do not require any permissions that are not strictly necessary for their functionality. This means, that all of the three apps require no permissions. They furthermore contain no ads or user tracking mechanisms.
