"How long do you want these messages to remain secret?"
"I want them to remain secret for as long as men are capable of evil."

It saddens me to see how 1.4 billion people are being used as guinea pigs to test how a society works under total surveillance. If we can't stop this, I hope we can at lest learn some lessons that will stop the rest of the world from going down a similar path.

Privacy is a big concern of mine, everything we can do, we must. It is a right. We must always read privacy policies, check tos/coc, and stop feeding these ppl with free gold...

Before going to a protest, you may want to consider backing up your phone data to your computer, and then removing that data from your phone. But you should be aware that some MPE tools are able to recover deleted data.

Ads are, by design, distracting. I find it hard to understand how something that prevents me from efficiently achieving my goals can be considered "relevant".

Companies trying to show me "relevant ads" fail to acknowledge that the most relevant ad is usually no ad.

The idea that website owners have "a right" to track the clicks from their emails to you and to know everything about your journey in their system is wrong.

Imagine if you buy your child a bike - does the chain manufacturer have a right to know what time they use the bike and which friends they visit?

Of course not. We should stop pretending that websites are magical experiences that require persistent intrusion.

#Privacy is a right, even though it is far from being legally declared so.

A super easy way to disable camera and microphone access on #Android for #privacy. This is built into the system (Android 10+)

settings > developer options > quick setting developer tiles > sensors off

This will place a quick settings tile in the notification shade to enable/disable sensors on the device, allowing you to completely disable camera/microphone access on the device

I don't want websites and the companies that own them to manipulate me into staying longer. I don't want them actively attempting to exploit weaknesses in my brain. I don't want to be controlled.

I just want to have interests. And I just want to live a humble life. And I want to make sure that those around me are happy and healthy.

This "value"-hungry network of companies have to be stopped.

In some towns, the local government offers tiered discount rates for Ring cameras based on how much of the public area on a street the Ring will regularly capture. The more of the public space it captures, the larger the discount. eff.org/deeplinks/2020/06/amaz

"Outdoor surveillance cameras like Ring have the potential to provide the police with video footage covering every inch of an entire neighborhood."

It's not just a doorbell. It's not just a security system. It's another stepping stone to surveillance society.
