Hey I found an open source menstrual cycle tracking app called Drip that doesn't call home to anyone and encrypts your data on your device. It's gender inclusive and it has a prebuilt version Android that you can get either on F-Droid or on their site here: bloodyhealth.gitlab.io

They have an iOS version but it's not pre compiled. I'll be working on that today so you can get loaded onto your Apple devices, along with the instructions to install it on said Apple device.

Please boost so others can see this!

Thinking aloud about enhancing security and deniability 

@Temmie19 :thinking:
Makes me think: "encrypted" won't matter much if one gets subpoena'd, but what if it created plausibly deniable fake data if one entered the wrong passcode?

It could offer something like a friendly visual hash based on the passcode (e.g. a cartoon face mascot, a colour scheme, a procedurally generated border frill, etc.), so one could know whether they had made an error decrypting the data.

Then a person subpoena'd for potentially incriminating menstruation data ( :picardfacepalm: ) could provide an incorrect passphrase and get some plausible normal-looking data to refuse to comment or speculate or testify upon.

@seachaint @Temmie19 what about connecting it to panic button from Guardian project?

Thinking aloud about enhancing security and deniability 

@Cryptie @Temmie19 I would say: why not both :)

The strategies vary in their particulars, of course. In some jurisdictions perhaps the deliberate use of a panic button could be interpreted to imply guilt, or even obstruction or destruction of evidence.

And frankly, most people are not going to go to that level of configuration-effort. I wish they did, but most people will take only the easiest or most-default methods of self-defence available. Deniability that comes by default is a strategy that someone could maybe fall back on in times of need, without ever believing that they would have to, without preparation or warning.
The tricky bit is that I'm not sure it can be done, technically, the way I first supposed. I think a deliberate second password would be needed in advance to make it work.
