#facebook is planning to rebrand the company with a new name next week! I wonder what that would be. Whatever it is, I’m sure it won’t make it more #privacy friendly. Mark’s trying to build the “metaverse” apparently, whatever that means.
A good writeup explaining why #facebook went dark yesterday.
Frances Haugen, a whistleblower from #facebook provides internal documents confirming what most of us already know. Facebook optimizes its profit over its users best interest and societal safety.
Patches are already out so make sure your client is up to date.
#ios 14.8 is out! And trust me, you wanna get this one... like now!
The #eff will fly an aerial banner over the Apple’s campus tomorrow during the iPhone 13 launch event to make sure #apple understands that “encryption is simply too important to give up on”. I really respect what these guys are doing ✊
Friend: What’s your new address? I can come pick you up
Me: Thx, but I don’t want my address to end up on #facebook
Friend: What? I’m not giving it to FB. WTH?!
Me: Hum, you’ll probably add it to my contact on your phone. You gave Messenger and Whatsapp access to your contacts. So yeah if I give you my address there’s a good chance it’ll end up in a FB’s database.
Why is it so hard to protect one’s data these days? Is there a way for me to have ppl over without leaking my address?
China joins Europe and some US states with its Personal Information Protection Law effective November 1st. It’s great to see more countries making it harder for tech companies to abuse user data.
Well it’s kinda too late now #facebook. You had Whatsapp for what? 7 years now? And you’re just now thinking of rolling out E2E encryption for Messenger and Instagram?
#apple apparently regrets the “confusion” around its recently announced CSAM and iMessage nudity detection features. I don’t think there has been any confusion, at least not among #privacy advocates who are pushing against this. It’s sad that Apple doesn’t seem to budge and might actually go through with this.
Cool new addition to #firefox that allows you to easily “forget” a website. That would wipe all cookies, local data, cache, and history traces related to your visits to that website.
Besides, what happened to “everything stays on your iPhone”? -_-
I make computers do things.
