Just a bit of a ramble on #android and #apple and #privacy and #security inspired by a recent post by @beardedtechguy.

It's a bit of a ranty post, but not trying to be mean :blobfoxheart:

This is day 19 of #100DaysToOffload

Polish National Data Protection Authority, @UODO, has joined fedi:

In the announcement on their website, the head of the DPA, Miros艂aw Wr贸blewski, explicitly mentions decentralization as the reason to join:

#Privacy #DPA

Protecting your #privacy starts with threat modeling.

By accurately accessing your online #security threats & potential weaknesses, you can better protect your #digital life.

You are one of kind & so is your threat model. You can learn more here:

I'm still wondering whether I should install KDE Connect or not. On the one hand, great smartphone integration on the computer, on the other hand: do I really need it? Longer battery life is more important to me, and for the few times I want to transfer photos to the computer, I can also connect the USB cable.

Y'know, something which has been bothering me for years鈥

#Crash reporting is super useful. It highlights #critical #issues in #software. On #Fedora with #GNOME this can be set up to #automaticallyreport such issues.

GNOME assures me the report is #anonymous.

In order to submit the report, I must register, using verified personally identifying information.


Everyone is held to the same #privacy standards. If I cannot submit with #anonymity, or you lie about it, you do not get my support.

Eine traurige Wahrheit: Bei der Analyse/脺berpr眉fung des Datenverkehrs einer App, lautet die Frage nicht, ob man Datenschutzverst枚脽e findet, sondern wie viele und wie schwerwiegend diese sind. Davon ausgenommen sind Apps aus dem F-Droid-Store. 馃鈥嶁檪锔

@Michael Vogel to be honest I check my friendica account from a tablet and you will understand that the people around me can more easily see the content... and as I don't have content filters with the other instances, I don't feel very comfortable sometimes with all the images that appear on the timeline and the idea of choosing what and when to see, seems more comfortable to me.
More #privacy

The next beta version of #Signal will be version 7.0.0.
There's a good reason for the round number. This will be the first version where usernames and phone number privacy are available outside of the staging environment.
From this version on, you'll be able to talk to people on Signal without revealing your phone number, and also, you may use Signal without revealing to people who have your number saved that you do.
This is huge.

In the latest issue we've written up an article explaining the importance of post-quantum #encryption.

This screenshot shows the app analytics data sent by two different #iOS apps: Duolingo and Tinder. What's the likelihood that both apps are installed on the same device? 馃挴? 馃く

Both apps use Unity Ads. The data in the screenshot is collected by the Unity Ads framework included in these two apps, and any app that uses Unity Ads. The data is sent to the same Unity server. As a result, Unity Ads can easily fingerprint users and track them across different apps.

I love everything about Tuta!

It has an excellent support team, a sleek interface (much better compared to other email providers), easy-to-follow-and-change settings, and most importantly, it's based on the EU soil - providing me with the best security and #privacy laws possible.

It's not important, but I also like the way Tuta did marketing. Also, portraying their team in black and white colors looks genuinely creative. Sounds weird to say it, but I am being serious here.

Tuta is chosen because of EU based #privacy #bydesign - I have a paid entry and 2 free ones ... need to vary my handout of emails according to risk of spamming and not having all my eggs in a single basket 馃槑
