The Portmaster privacy app is one giant of a machine. But up until recently, most of its powers were not really usable. The features were either invisible or hidden behind a clunky old User Interface. That is where Patrick comes along, who took charge of completely modernizing the Portmaster's User Interface. There is a lot to unravel here as Patrick gives us a good look at how it was to join Safing, how he felt when receiving this monumental task and how it was to work alongside Luke, the designer.

#026 - The Crux with Payment Methods

Accepting payments as a privacy company is not as straightforward as it might seem.

Additionally, being a privacy company means that many payment vendors are not too keen to provide us with their services. Raphael and David sit down and have an extensive talk about all of these aspects. Participate What could we do better? Let us know h ..read more
