Migration to the new disk management system

We’ve introduced a new system to control where your services’ data is stored, but an initial migration is needed. Without it, you won’t be able to move services between volumes.

We highly encourage you to manually back up your data from the server before migrating.

To use the new disk management features properly you have to perform the migration. Go to the “More” tab and tap on the “Start migration” button. This migration is also known as “binds migration” in our internals, and you may see this term if you encounter an error related to this system. If you do, please report it to us, and we will help.

Our own F-Droid repo, nightly builds and desktops

From now on, our app also deployed on our own F-Droid repository, allowing you to get our builds faster.

This repository contains two apps: SelfPrivacy and SelfPrivacy Nightly. The first one contains release builds, and the second one is for development builds. They may contain bugs, but will allow you to test our new features before release. All three Android builds (Official F-Droid, our own F-Droid and Nightly) are independent and can be installed simultaneously.

You can also try out our experimental desktop builds, available for Linux as Flatpak, Windows and macOS. Please keep in mind that we cannot guarantee that the app will launch on your distro, and that we have not adapted our UI for desktops yet.

Version 0.6.0 Release

  • Added support for server access from SelfPrivacy apps installed on several devices.
  • You can now create recovery token to regain the access to the server if you lose your device or the app’s data.
  • You can now connect to an existing server, instead of creating a new one.
  • Initial support for Material Design 3 (Material You).
  • App now uses your system colors on Android 12 (Material You), Windows 10 (accent color) and Linux (GTK colors). While SelfPrivacy works ok on desktops, we won’t officially release desktop versions until we refactor our UI to support big screens.
  • Minor bug fixes.
