For all those who still have #facebook that's a nice way to remove all your posts ... Even if we're not sure that it's stored somewhere else

Achats
https://myaccount.google.com/u/0/purchases

Google garde visiblement une trace de tout ce que vous achetez. Je ne sais pas ce qu'ils utilisent pour alimenter cette liste mais probablement les mails en priorité. Il est donc préférable d'utiliser une adresse email non-Google et de confiance ou chiffrée côté client pour vos achats en ligne (du genre ProtonMail).

Merde, j'ai pas compris la blague là 🤔

#Google ouvre un centre mondial dédié à la vie privée en Europe

L’entreprise compte doubler ses effectifs dédiés à la protection des données personnelles dans son nouveau centre situé à Munich, en Allemagne. Elle lance également un fonds de soutien aux entrepreneurs de la sécurité de 10 millions d’euros.

Poni una questione importante e molto dibattuta anche in materia di #carbontax (meglio tassare il carbonio o vietare direttamente le centrali a carbone?). Ma non è forse un bene che la violazione della #privacy sia riconosciuta come un'attività con forti esternalità negative tanto che potrebbe essere opportuno tassarla, anche se magari poi si decide di impedirla in altri modi?


 
La sorveglianza va impedita tecnicamente, non sfruttata economicamente.

Questa tassa introduce come minimo un conflitto di interessi nel Governo: una tutela "eccessiva" della #privacy e/o dell'autonomia decisionale delle mucche da mungere (aka cittadini) ridurrebbe le sue entrate. Una tutela minore, invece le aumenterebbe.

E poi, immagina di guidare un Governo con un accesso legale ai dati dei tuoi cittadini presso Google.

Può chiedere di più un tiranno?

New creepy trend I just discovered in the New York subway: Tourists with a chest-mounted Gopro-sized camera. Wide angle, no way of knowing whether it’s currently recording or not.

When you use somebody elses' platform to communicate, they can see who talks to who, when and for how long. Such 'metadata' says a lot more about you than you realize. This is why Facebook wants you to forget about metadata when you think about #privacy

Nice touch. Mozilla has also deleted Telemetry data for that period as some users had to enable Telemetry to get the hot-fix.

"In order to respect our users’ potential intentions as much as possible, based on our current set up, we will be deleting all of our source Telemetry and Studies data for our entire user population collected between 2019-05-04T11:00:00Z and 2019-05-11T11:00:00Z."

Considérations de #vieprivée : en utilisant la version 8.0.8 du bundle #torbrowser je vois que même en niveau de sécurité élevée #JS continue à fonctionner et que #noscript est désactivé... Laissant plein de possibilités d'espionnage être surveillance.

Conseil : installer un autre navigateur y désactiver JS et modifier tout ce qu'il faut pour passer par un proxy de type socks5 sur 127.0.0.1 port 9150, executer le #torbrowser pour activer le proxy et surfer plus tranquillement.

In case you use Facebook’s mobile app, it tracks your location and knows everywhere you go, always: https://www.cnbc.com/2019/04/30/how-to-stop-facebook-from-storing-your-location-history.html

Stop Facebook from tracking you by de-installing the FB app now! #Mastodon is much better for social anyway. 😉 And read our guide on how to leave Google & Facebook: https://tutanota.com/blog/posts/how-to-leave-google-gmail/ #staysecure #privacy 😎

Anyone else here from /r/linux?


Hi, first post. I'm loving the idea of a federated Reddit alternative, and of having multiple groups in a chat.

Definitive new features sound like the kind of thing that could actually get people moving, since privacy and avoiding a surveillance state clearly aren't on most folks' to-do list.

Will there be any benefits to ActivityPub being used here? Will crossover from Mastodon to Prism?

Proof that NextCloud protects its users' encrypted data from admins - it rendered my data unusable after a password "loss"

I had been messing with database users over the weekend and I probably messed something up so yesterday when I tried to login to my NextCloud hosting I was greeted with an error message for my password. Performing a password reset greeted me with the message below saying my data would no longer be accessible after the reset. This is a very good thing because what is the point of encrypted data if an admin can perform a password reset and then login and read your data. I'm always suspicious if a messaging service or hoster can allow a password reset and then you can access your data = means they can do the same for themselves or law enforcement.

If a hoster says to you your data is unrecoverable after a password is lost or reset you can think about trusting them.

So my online data was encrypted and unreadable after I logged in but its not all doom and gloom because the nature of NextCloud is that I sync that data to my various devices. I just renamed that local folder on my computer, did the reset, deleted the online data, and copied the data back into the local folder on my folder to resync back to NextCloud.

Note if you have not enabled encryption on your NextCloud server then your data is unaffected. But good to know if you host your own NextCloud instance at a 3rd party hoster, they're not going to be snooping on your encrypted data. NextCloud is also a great sharing service to host for friends and family. They've been adding more and more functionality like calendar syncing, kanboards, todo lists, contacts sync, and many other productivity tools.

Hello WordPress users,

Do you know sources of good privacy-friendly themes for WordPress? (i.e. without any trackers)

(It's possible to remove trackers manually, but this is a request for themes that respect privacy by default.)
