F-Droid is The Android Market That Respects Your Rights


Founded by Ciaran Gultnieks, F-Droid is an Android repository designed to respect the privacy and rights of its users. Beyond only including free and open source software, F-Droid doesn’t track devices which access the service, nor individual downloads. Users don’t need an account to use F-Droid, and they don’t even need to install the client side software (though it helps).
F-Droid even goes so far as to filter out applications which include, as F-Droid calls them, “AntiFeatures”. These are traits which don’t actually violate the free software license the applications are released under, but are the kind of things that free software users usually take offense to. The list of AntiFeatures includes:
  • Advertisements
  • User or device tracking
  • Promotion of non-free software
  • Dependence on a non-free network or service
  • Dependence on another non-free application
While applications with AntiFeatures can be included in the F-Droid repository (assuming, of course, they are released under a free software license), they won’t be shown to end users unless they specifically ask to see them.
