Éléments taggés privacy

#traduisonsles : "Ya 36 paiements par seconde petit, donc la sécu et le fait de transférer des données en clair c'est moins important d'accord ?"

Alors alors, il me faut :
- un clou,
- un marqueur,
- un marteau,
- et une lampe torche.

Résultat : paiement sans contact niqué et paiement sans crainte activé.

Thanks to @exodus (sorry folks for having put a bit load on your site during the past few days; I'm back to normal now), coverage on what apps on my app listings are tainted by what trackers now is close to 95%

Thanks for offering that great service 🙇

What app listings? These:

Watch out for those monitor icons (really offensive trackers) – but also for those yellow stars (no trackers found) next to the apps 😃

Many good proposals were received for the #Decentralized Internet & #Privacy devroom at #fosdem2019 (deadline was November 26). Now is the exciting and difficult part: choosing among them and publishing the schedule before December 15th 🤔

@Natouille @how @Siltaer @pierreozoux @egrasmed : I'm happy we're doing this together 🙂

The deadline for the Call for Participation for the #Decentralized Internet & #Privacy devroom at #fosdem2019 is in a few days (November 26).

If you belong to a population who is usually under-represented at #FOSDEM, please submit and contribute to a healthy diversity.

#Briar is an unusual kind of messenger for Android devices: there are no servers, messages are stored on your phone and sent directly to your contact's phone through TOR, wi-fi or bluetooth.

It's designed for journalists, activists, people working in disaster zones and anyone interested in "off the grid" communication.

The official site is here:

The app is free, open source and available through @fdroidorg and Google Play.

Neuer Verfassungsschutzchef fordert Zugriff auf verschlüsselte Kommunikation
natürlich wieder nur zur Terrorabwehr. Er will den Zugriff auf verschlüsselte Daten verbessern, ohne die Freiheitsrechte der Bürger massiv einzuschränken.
Also: einschränken ja, nur nicht komplett. Sogar stark einschränken passt da noch rein. Nur nicht zu doll halt. Aha.

Surprise surprise 😱

"Google has been accused of breaking promises to patients, after the company announced it would be moving a healthcare-focused subsidiary, DeepMind Health, into the main arm of the organisation." (via @jcbrand )

Reminder that patients did not even give consent to this data going to Google in the first place:

Google has no problem breaking privacy promises. They cannot be trusted.

I'm just wanted to point out the difference between open source vs. proprietary specifically to you and in general for other readers since you are tagging this with privacy which I'm following... also when it comes to #privacy other stuff usually follows with it like Free Open Source Software vs proprietary.

I was using the Brave browser on my iPhone, but thanks to @Jérémie Fontana I found out about and now I switched back to Safari and bought Better Blocker for iOS by @Aral Balkan instead. #privacy #adblocker #ios

@exodus nebenbei habe ich den Verdacht dass, was Appbrain als AdMob reportet, das gleiche ist es Exodus als GoogleAds ausweist. Sollte das stimmen hieße das, dass selbige in 50% der Apps stecken 😵

#lautGedacht #privacy #Google

OK, jetzt sind alle @exodus bekannten Tracker erfasst (nicht nur die, welche auch Appbrain kennt). Ergebnis: kleine Sprünge in der Statistik. Jetzt gibt es u.a.

- 1 App mit 20 Trackern*
- 2 mit 19, 18, 17
- 8 mit 16
- 18 mit 15
- 36 mit 14
- 45 mit 13 …
- 1123 mit 3 …
- 60% mit 1+L

Wohlgemerkt nur von den 14k Apps in meinen Listen. Und das sind nur *Tracker, die mir als invasiv bekannt sind – da können also durchaus auch weit mehr verbaut sein …

Legal stuff from a Tracking company: „[we retain collected data] for as long as needed to provide our Services, comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, establish legal
defenses, conduct audits, pursue legitimate business purposes, and enforce our agreements“.

Interesting that „provide our Services“ is listed separate from „pursue legitimate business purposes“. Certainly because of … users are not asked for their consent?


Strange question of today (by unicast email): "do you supply,,, or know someone that supplies
mobile phone tracker software that actually works"


Schon erstaunlich, was so manche Datensammler anstellen. Sense360 sammelt alles, was die Sensoren hergeben (und mehr, z.B. Gesundheitsdaten, ethnischer Hintergrund, Einkommen …), speichert es in der Cloud – und meint, dazu brauche es kein explizites Einverständnis der Nutzer? Habe ich da was verpasst?

A new version of my favourite privacy friendly web browser called Privacy Browser for Android has just been released.

It blocks JavaScript, cookies and all other goodies by default and it supports both global and per-domain settings for everything you can think of, like JavaScripts, trackers and cookies.

It makes browsing the modern web on my 3 year old phone actually decently fast.

And it's available via @fdroidorg. :)

"Finally, an email service that's built around your #privacy. … No data collection …"

Quick look at the app: Crashlytics, Firebase … yeah, no data collection at all. Finally, another fail…

Apart from the fact that it is not really multi-device capable: "Criptext doesn't store your emails in its servers. Instead, your entire inbox is stored exclusively on your device."

The Decentralized Internet & Privacy Devroom Call for Participation is open (and now readable! Thanks @Natouille)

Recap: XMPP – admin-in-the-middle.

XMPP admins can transparently:

– see and arbitrarily modify all of your contacts, MUC memberships/affiliations and vCard data
– monitor your activity and devices
– log and read your password in cleartext
– log and read cleartext messages and other file types
– impersonate your contacts
– delete messages
– …

In our opinion, the only way to privately and securely use XMPP is hosting your own server.

In a parallel universe where Ubuntu hadn't provided the "install alongside Windows" option (which it did about 10 years ago), I'd be writing enterprise Java on a Windows 10 machine, blissfully unaware of the existence of free software and believing that privacy is dead if Mark Zuckerberg says so.


Dear #purists and #absolutists,

It's great to be clean and pure yourself, but sometimes you have step into the mud to pull out others who are stuck in it.

I recently received a mail @moznews requesting me to sign a petition against #Facebook.

Really? That's your action plan? Beg for #privacy from FB?

I wonder why #Mozilla can't host a #Mastodon instance. They have the community strength to pull off such an endeavor.

Their audience base would immediately show a huge switch to Mastodon with probably just an email.

The Call for Participation for the #Decentralized Internet & #Privacy devroom at #fosdem2019 was published 🎉 It would be great to receive proposals from a diversity of people.

Please boost widely !
