The canary is gone and not coming back, it was purely a placebo and the guy in charge of it left the project. Since I'm now in charge of the wiki I am putting an end to this farce that has caused more harm and paranoia than good.
Because of how Tox works we have no data about our users meaning nobody can force us to give any to them because we have none.
If you want to be sure Tox is safe, read the code and build it yourself. Don't rely on some stupid canary that might not even work.
