How do people feel about @brave? I like it. #browser #privacy


Do you really see #Firefox as #privacy-first with pocket built in and strange opt-out only "experiments", hidden from typical users? I'd be unsure about that assumption.

Going dark: Is encryption a threat to our security? The Swedish EU Council says yes.

But we say: Stop the #CryptoWars. Destroying everybody's #privacy will not increase #security.

🆕 blog! “The IAB loves tracking users. But it hates users tracking them.”

The Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB) is a standards development group for the advertising industry. Their members love tracking users. They want to know where you are, who you're with, what you're buying, and what you think. All so they can convince you to spend sligh…

SUPL-Server nutzen Android-Systeme, um die GPS-Positionsbestimmung zu beschleunigen. Stellt sich heraus, dass die Domain "supl.vodafone.com" nur ein CNAME für "supl.google.com" ist. 🤦

Man meint also, man würde einen etwas datenschutzfreundlicheren SUPL-Server nutzen, aber am anderen Ende hockt dann wieder Google. 😑

Today, you can choose not to drive a Tesla if you don’t want Elon Musk, Inc. knowing everywhere you go.

Tomorrow, you might have to limit where you live because you won’t live in a Google Home and reconsider having 20/20 vision again in exchange for the artificial lens company seeing everything you see.

Privacy is not something you can “vote with your wallet” on. We either protect it as a human right or we lose it altogether.

I have been watching the Interledger Summit 2022 session recordings incrementally over the last few weeks.

Unexpected delightful surprise was @todd presenting how @purism (the privacy-centric open source laptop and smart phone) stubbed out an entire two-sided app store marketplace based on Interledger and its related in-progress projects.

2023 is going to be breakout year for open payments.

Oh Lovely! This means our #private data could be uploaded to Facebook and Google whether or not we want that data shared.

Shopify President Harley Finkelstein says the company's Audiences marketing tool, which uploads customer data to Meta and Google's ad platforms, is a key focus.

People following my account for a while probably noticed me talking about South Korea every now and then. I’ve hinted towards doing some important research, and now the time has finally come for the first disclosures.

But first I need to do a bunch of explaining because most people (my past self from a few months ago included) are largely unfamiliar with the Korean software landscape. See: they have those “security” applications that everyone has to install if they want to use online banking for example.

What could possibly go wrong with applications developed by private vendors without any kind of security vetting and that everyone in a country has to install, whether they like it or not? A lot of course.

In this first blog post I explain how in my limited understanding the current situation came about, show why the companies lack incentive to really invest in security and give you a first slight idea of the disastrous consequences.

No, I’m not exaggerating. The next blog post is scheduled for January 9th, and it will be about a specific application. I submitted seven vulnerability reports for this one. It took a real issue and claimed to have solved it – by making matters considerably worse than they were.

🔓 Like good neocolonizers, #humanitarian organizations & #nonprofits, like militaries, also collect vast amounts of #biometric & other private information about people with reckless disregard for basic #privacy and #security concepts.

✊🏽 We must hold them accountable for the risks and damages their actions cause: it's unacceptable to allow society to continue this way.

:pesthorn: Thanks to #CCC for helping expose the dangerous truth.

As lead maintainer of the official #FDroid client, I hear a lot of criticism that #targetSdkVersion is still at 25. fdroidclient is #FreeSoftware, publicly audited, with #ReproducibleBuilds, written in memory safe languages, with a proven record of respecting #privacy and delivering #security. The source and binaries also receive human and machine review. #targetSdkVersion is designed around untrusted proprietary software with non-memory safe code where the binary only gets machine review. 1/2


Google introduces client-side encryption for Gmail - but only for key account customers.

Yet, you'll be happy to know that encryption is available to everyone in Tutanota, not just a chosen few. 😀

When billionaires say they don’t care about privacy, it‘s your privacy they’re talking about not theirs. Mark Zuckerberg says “privacy is dead” in one breath and buys the four houses around his house in the next because he values his own privacy. It’s yours that he’s actively engaged in strangling the life out of.
