Apple Is Working on iPhone Features to Help Detect Depression, Cognitive Decline


I have three words for you: client-side scanning.

Apple can no longer be trusted on privacy and that makes plans like this very scary.

Mobilizon is an event organising platform for the Fediverse, a free open source alternative to Facebook Events.

You can find out more at:


Mobilizon instances federate with the rest of the Fediverse, so people on Mastodon can follow Mobilizon accounts and see their latest events.

You can join an existing instance, there's a list of instances at instances.joinmobilizon.org

If you're technically skilled, you can create your own instance using the instructions at docs.joinmobilizon.org/adminis

Basically, if Apple implements this, it means your phone is no longer your own.

Every iPhone and iPad will come with parental controls activated. The parents, in this case are Apple, and your national government.

If you, yourself, are a parent, you will have the option to activate a second level of parental control for your children so you are notified if they share nude images. In some cultures this will lead to a stern taking to. In others, it will lead to honour killings.

Here's a little thing that may not be obvious to many people....

When you install an open-source app from Google Play or the Apple app store, there is no guarantee that what you install actually matches the public code.

@fdroidorg are doing a great service. They independently build the public source code for apps from scratch, review for common issues, and publish their builds. Thanks to "reproducible builds" it's possible to verify they do not tamper with the code.

If we don’t do anything to stop the sale of this technology, it’s not just going to be 50,000 targets. It’s going to be 50 million targets, and it’s going to happen much more quickly than any of us expect. t.co/kXt6d4ahqZ

Crazy: @chbmeyer says he asked #Renault what kind of personal data his car collects & shares with the company. #GDPR

Here you go, dystopian shit:

- Charging history
- Temperature
- Unique car & battery IDs
- Kilometres driven (battery)
- Operational state of engine
- Driving & parking history
- Data on speed, acceleration & deceleration
- Number of times ABS has been activated
- When airbags are deactivated
- Name, first name & email of owner
- Other electric vehicles in vicinity
- Geolocation

Torsten Grote explored Free Software alternatives for smartphones as early as 2012. ⭐

In our interview we look back at the start of Free Your Android campaign.

Of course, we asked @grote@status.grobox.de which options are available for liberating our phones today.

The interview was conducted in the context of celebrating 20 Years of the FSFE 🙂 #FSFE20
