To try to explain it in layman's terms, rss is http link, which you can use to get notified when an update on a website, such as a blog has been posted.
rss Reader in Whonix
rss to e-mail
- Introduction on this page
For example rssforward (not affiliated with Whonix and neither recommended nor recommended against) is a rss to e-mail service. As time of writing there are also free rss to e-mail services. Because free services don't have a money trail it is easier to use them anonymously.
If you like to frequently read a website (ex: blog), such as the Whonix News Blog (as recommend on the Download page in the News chapter) and don't mind your the rss to e-mail service, mail provider knowing and who knows who else knowing, that you subscribed that blog, you could use such a service to stay on top of latest Whonix News.
For better security you could create a new e-mail address using Tor which you exclusively use only to receive notifications about website updates. Note that the mail provider could spoof the notification mails.
rss to sms
There are also (free) rss to sms services, perhaps convenient, but they have to be considered even less anonymous than rss to e-mail.
- No scripts.
- No fingerprinting.
