Can you help me …
… encrypt my computer?
Yes. It is best to backup your computer beforehand so that you can restore any data if it is lost. Depending on which operating system you use, the encryption will work a bit differently.
… install Linux on my computer?
We are happy to help you decide which Linux distribution might be right for you, as well as to help install it. Make sure you have made a backup beforehand - we have installation USB Sticks on hand.
… install another operating system on my smartphone?
We are happy to support you with the installation of the alternative Android operating systems CalyxOS or GrapheneOS. Please note that these alternative Android operating systems cannot be installed on any hardware: If you already have a smartphone, you need to check if one of these alternative operating systems runs on it (here for CalyxOS and here for GrapheneOS). If you would like to buy a new smartphone and are unsure, we can assist you in choosing a suitable device.
… even if I haven’t done the prerequisites mentioned in the FAQ’s?
We can also go through everything together. But in that case, it may take a little longer or you might have to come to additional consultation hours.
… if I don’t know exactly what I need to do?
Write us an e-mail with your request. We may be able to help you with the prep work, or just come by and maybe it will work out anyway.
What do I need to bring?
- The device you want to work with
- A USB stick is never a bad idea
