It's one of the best privacy sites on the web. Very detailed but not difficult to understand. Great collection of information, software and extensions.
terrible recommendations. Should be called "PrivacyFools"
Now privacytools.io updated their homepage and seems to have closed its open-source services, and its before source code has been archived.
It's pretty good for finding privacy focused alternatives to most apps, however it sometimes takes sponsorships thus sometimes showing not foss, but sponsorships aside, it's a very good site to find privacy focused alternatives, however it misses some good privacy focused stuff.

Useful recommendations and reviews. This and prism-break are my favorite resources for privacy-preserving alternatives
