In connection with blocking (including possible ones) and leaving services from Russia, it may be worth considering revising the choice of applications and other services and replacing them with others (preferably ethical ones), but, of course, it is clear that this is not always possible. Do not forget that giants such as Google and Facebook are always hunting for your data to make it easier to sell it at a higher price.
To solve such problems, the use of alternative front-ends to these services may come. They accept requests from you and then request the original service to receive content, this will bypass the blocking. In addition, they are minimalistic, there are almost no annoying elements on them and they do not send unnecessary requests. But also an important feature: these services are usually located on different servers located in different countries of the world and are supported by enthusiasts, which allows you not to worry about the inoperability of a particular server. In this article, I tried to collect as many front-ends as possible for many popular services and social networks. networks.
