How was your Degoogling, ? What tools and/or services did you use to replace the ones from Google?
So far, I'm replacing Gmail with free email service. This made me change the associated email address in a lot of services to the new one. There are still a few services unchanged, specially state stuff, but I'll make it eventually.
For web searches, I'm using @StartpageSearch instead of Google.
I haven't found a decent replacement for Photos so far :(

@brunomiguel For email, I am currently using Fastmail, it has been rock solid but it's paid.

For search it's a bit tricky, for local search and language/country specific searches in Portugal I haven't found a single replacement that I can reliably count on without falling back to Google.

Also don't know of a free alternative to Photos. But if you want a "hackish" solution and have an old computer (let me know if you don't) you can always host Nextcloud/Owncloud from home or something.

@hugo give Whoogle a test for language/country specific searches. It acts like a proxy to Google Search, removing the tracking but giving you Google Search results. You can even run it on your computer

@hugo I have a very hold single-core desktop with a tremendously slow disk, but I don't have a monitor for it and the motherboard battery is dead, so it never saves the time if power fails (which happened, screwing me ^^')


@brunomiguel I have a very old laptop that works (not sure how the battery is). I have installed Linux on it recently for a test and it still works. If you ever need something to hack, I can give it to you.
