Weather apps are one of the few apps people use every day that needs a location to work, but weather apps on most smartphones are notorious for capturing and selling your location data.
The Librem 5 is designed to protect your privacy, and include a privacy-respecting Weather app. When opened this retrieves weather data from the Norwegian Meteorological Institute, and only them.
The Norwegian Meteorological Institute has a free and open data policy with the goal of benefiting society, in many ways similar to our ideals at Purism.
Weather features an hourly overview, as well as a 10-day forecast.
As you would expect on a privacy device, you can disable automatic location and enter your position by hand.

Purism believes building the Librem 5 is just one step on the road to launching a digital rights movement, where we—the-people stand up for our digital rights, where we place the control of your data and your family’s data back where it belongs: in your own hands.
