  • uMatrix

    Free Mac Windows Linux Chrome Opera ... Chromium Firefox Website

    Point & click to forbid/allow any class of requests made by your browser. Use it to block scripts, iframes, ads, facebook, etc.
    uMatrix: A point-and-click matrix-based firewall, with many privacy-enhancing tools.

    uMatrix put you in full control of where your browser is allowed to connect, what type of data it is allowed to download, and what it is allowed to execute. Nobody else decides for you: You choose. You are in full control of your privacy.

    Out of the box, uMatrix works in relax block-all/allow-exceptionally mode, meaning web sites which require 3rd-party scripts are likely to be "broken". With two clicks, uMatrix can be set to work in allow-all/block-exceptionally mode, which generally will not break web sites.

    Regarding the myth that "Chromium-based browsers can't reliably block JavaScript", see: https://github.com/gorhill/httpswitchboard/wiki/Blocking-javascript-execution-reliably-in-Chromium-based-browsers .

    • See ALL the remote connections, failed or attempted, depending on whether they were blocked or allowed (you decide).

    • A single-click to whitelist/blacklist one or multiple classes of requests according to the destination and type of data (a blocked request will NEVER leave your browser).

    • Efficient blacklisting: cookies won't leave your browser, JavaScript won't execute, plugins won't play, tracking pixels won't download, etc.

    • You do not have to solely rely on just one particular curated blacklist (arguably with many missing entries) outside which nothing else can be blocked: You are in full control.

    • Ease of use: uMatrix lets you easily whitelist/blacklist net requests which originate from within a web page according to a point-and-click matrix:

    • domain names (left column)
    • from very specific
    • to very generic
    • type of requests (top row)
    • cookies
    • CSS-related resources (stylesheets and web fonts)
    • images
    • plugins
    • scripts
    • XHR (requests made by scripts)
    • frames
    • others

  • Keepass2Android

    Free Android Android Tablet Website

    Keepass2Android is an open source password manager application for Android. It reads and writes .kdbx-files, the database format used by the popular KeePass 2.x Password Safe for Windows and other desktop operating systems.
    The user interface is based on Keepassdroid (by Brian Pellin), ported from Java to Mono for Android. The backend uses the original KeePass libraries to handle file access to ensure file format compatibility.

    Main features of the App are

    • read/write support for .kdbx (KeePass 2.x) files
    • integrates with nearly every Android browser (see below)
    • QuickUnlock: Unlock your database once with your full password, re-open it by typing just a few characters (see below)
    • Integrated Soft-Keyboard: Switch to this keyboard for entering user credentials. This shields you from clipboard based password sniffers (see below)
    • support for editing entries including additional string fields, file attachments, tags etc.
    • Note: please install Keepass2Android (non offline version) if you want to open files directly from a webserver (FTP/WebDAV).
    • search dialog with all search options from KeePass 2.x.

  • VeraCrypt

    Free Mac Windows Linux PortableApps.com Website

    VeraCrypt is a free disk encryption software brought to you by IDRIX and that is based on Small TrueCrypt iconTrueCrypt .
    It adds enhanced security to the algorithms used for system and partitions encryption making it immune to new developments in brute-force attacks.
    For example, when the system partition is encrypted, TrueCrypt uses PBKDF2-RIPEMD160 with 1000 iterations whereas in VeraCrypt we use 327670. And for standard containers and other partitions, TrueCrypt uses at most 2000 iterations but VeraCrypt uses 655340 for RIPEMD160 and 500000 iterations for SHA-2 and Whirlpool.
