Don't update Audacity<a href="" rel="nofollow"> </a><br /> <br /> Audacity was recently sold to a commercial entity, which has quickly implemented some worrisome data collection practices.<br /> <br /> Don&#039;t update your Audacity software - if you&#039;re using any version older than 3.x, you should be safe.<br /> <br /> I&#039;ve been using Audacity for 15+ years, so it&#039;s disappointing to see that Audacity&#039;s new overlords had the audacity to do this! The fork shows promise, though.1Tue, 06 Jul 2021 02:04:28 +0000Nite: they did here is shoot themselves in the foot.<br /> Either they pull their head out of their own butt and frag this new data collection policy, or they keep it up and the world gets to see audacity sink like a lump of lead in the ocean.52Tue, 06 Jul 2021 22:55:39 +0000Bibby: Yep, pretty much. A third option is that the Audacity fork, which fixes these issues, will take off.1Thu, 08 Jul 2021 00:55:40 +0000Bibby: Audacity fixed the troubling details of its updated privacy policy.<br /> <br /> That&#039;s definitely a step in the right direction, although this episode still didn&#039;t exactly inspire a lot of trust from Audacity&#039;s users and contributors.1Sun, 15 Aug 2021 21:23:48 +0000Mon, 29 Nov 2021 23:43:08 +0000
