Defending GrapheneOS and Daniel Micay

Trouble has been brewing between Daniel Micay, GrapheneOS, and the privacy and security community for several months. This has culminated in Daniel, the founder of GrapheneOS, stepping down as lead developer of the project in late May, 2023. In this episode, we go over this issue in some detail and defend Daniel Micay and GrapheneOS from some of the criticisms and responses they’ve received, which we believe are unjustified. We also share our key takeaways and final thoughts so current and prospective GrapheneOS users can make a more informed decision as to whether they should use this operating system.
