Terms of Service when starting for first time
When the Peernet Browser starts for the first time it will show the Terms of Service. A few things it should include and mention:
- A note that Peernet is a public network. Any activity (sharing files, downloading files, etc.) is publicly visible.
- Every user is responsible for what they share. From an exposure perspective it can be explained that it's comparable to Torrents.
- If users want anonymity/hide the IP, they should use a VPN.
- A button to accept or reject the terms.
Here is the text that is shown for the Beaker Browser for reference:
Beaker is provided by Blue Link Labs, Inc.
- Beaker Browser is distributed under the MIT license.
- You are personally responsible for the content you share.
- Your IP address is publicly available while using Beaker Browser.
- We collect anonymized usage statistics if you don't opt out.
