The #surveillance program known as Data Analytical Services (previously known as Hemisphere) has been actively collecting trillions of domestic call records from Americans including those of individuals not suspected of any crimes.🕵️ 📱
Telecom provider AT&T has been collecting and saving call data on behalf of law enforcement agencies without any legal requirement to do so. 👨⚖️
A security cam you cannot even initialize if you don't have a smartphone that has WiFi AND mobile data turned on, a tracker-ridden app from the A/G-Store installed and a Cloud account with the vendor using your EMail address is…
…a #surveillance cam. but not one where you control the data.
Oh, did I say that one of the proposed use cases was "baby cam", and that it's all about #privacy?
Useless to say the product description didn't tell about those "requirements", right? 🤢
🚨 Another EU mass surveillance attempt. Will kill privacy on web. Must not pass. 🚨
“[A]ll web browsers distributed in Europe will be required to trust the certificate authorities and cryptographic keys selected by EU governments.
These changes radically expand the capability of EU governments to surveil their citizens by ensuring cryptographic keys under government control can be used to intercept encrypted web traffic across the EU.”
The answer is simple - YouTube Premium has no ads but Google still use it to profile you for advertising on their other products.
I refuse to pay for *any* service which doesn't respect my fundamental rights.
And so should everyone else, because until they do, Alphabet will continue with their illegal #surveillance.
Mozilla: "In a well-intentioned yet dangerous move to fight online fraud, France is on the verge of forcing browsers to create a dystopian technical capability. It would force browser providers to create the means to mandatorily block websites present on a government provided list. Such a move will overturn decades of established content moderation norms and provide a playbook for authoritarian governments"
10 years ago, Edward Snowden changed the world. The 'Snowden leaks' were a wake-up call: The conspiracy theory that Secret Services were monitoring our private conversations has proven to be true.
Public backlash after this revelation might have bought us years in our fight for privacy. However, today governments around the world are again pushing for more surveillance. This must be stopped! 🔒

Lawyer says #police didn't check man's height, weight—or the mole on his face.

Madison Square Garden used facial recognition to identify and stop a mom from attending a Christmas show with her kid because she's an attorney at a firm who is engaged in litigation with them.
This is why it's not enough to just ban government and law enforcement use of #facialrecognition. There are so many ways private companies and even individuals can abuse #biometric #surveillance tech.
#BanFacialRecognition entirely. Yesterday.
Content warning: fediblock and raspberry pi (we knew thee well)
This is not the behavior of a company that's concerned about privacy, security, trust, or autonomy, and I don't think this company can or should be trusted to remain federated with instances that want to be welcoming to marginalized people or anti-authoritarians.
Really hate to say it, because I've used and loved RPis for several years now, but if nothing else, please use a different SBC from now on. There are many options out there that aren't so eager to insult you for having concerns about security.

The Chrome browser is one example.
While you believe you are browsing the web, Google is browsing you instead.

(Remember Apple was/is(?) going to implement this sort of scanning by default on all your devices.)

Isn’t “smart tech” just wonderful? :)

e.g., I may have a Chinese-made phone sold with Google's #Android spyware, but because it's #OpenSource I am free to install a privacy-protecting OS instead.

Too many ppl reflect only on today.
Gifting MASSIVE total control tech, over all humans, using combined #AI + #Biometrics + Mass #Surveillance + fusion centers.
Corporate interests. Discreet power struggles.
Anything short of a full ban today is (at best) a hope future leaders will care more about your children's freedom than they do donor profits & digital dictatorship dreams.
(Don’t forget, the W3C is the standards body of surveillance capitalism.)
In a non-corporate world, your “password” could be so much more… It could be, for example, a mnemonic for the key to a facet of your self that you (and you alone) own and control.
