AccountFree is a platform focused around the idea that you should be able to use online services completely without any account if you are not a content creator, and that some of their features can be reproduced locally just as well. Online accounts comes with many issues, namely the security hazard that comes with entrusting your personal data to an online service that does not respect your right to privacy. AccountFree’s services aim to reproduce the service’s main features when unauthenticated, as well as providing an offline subscription system allowing you to follow and keep up to date on the people and topics you follow, while not implementing any of the tracking techniques put into place by said online services.
Services bridge system
AccountFree relies on “services” to work. Said services can be installed locally on a per-user basis while separating user data on shared computers, and can be installed, removed and toggled at will. As of right now, there exists two official services, one for Twitter and one for Twitch, that can be installed directly from the Services menu.
Furthermore, AccountFree provides an extensive documentation and a complete example service to help external developers to create services for AccountFree.
AccountFree makes subscription really easy as a one click function without an account, while allowing quick shortcuts to individual profiles on the sidebar, and the majority of services allow the construction of a feed or main page displaying relevant information about all followed accounts in real time.
AccountFree allows painless integration of The Onion Router to proxy all of your connections through Tor in order to best protect your privacy.
