Bahrain, Kuwait and Norway contact tracing apps among most dangerous for privacy



Amnesty International has had a look at contact tracing apps introduced in the wake of COVID-19:
Bahrain, Kuwait and Norway have run roughshod over people’s privacy, with highly invasive surveillance tools which go far beyond what is justified in efforts to tackle COVID-19. Privacy must not be another casualty as governments rush to roll out apps.

Google faces $5 billion lawsuit for tracking people in incognito mode - CNET

Google faces a proposed class action lawsuit that accuses the tech giant of invading people's privacy and tracking internet use even when browsers are set to "private" mode. The suit, filed Tuesday in the US District Court for the Northern District of California, alleges that Google violates wiretapping and privacy laws by continuing to "intercept, track, and collect communications" even when people use Chrome's incognito mode and other private web browser modes.

Why are #Google and #Apple dictating how #European #democracies fight #coronavirus?

In the long run, however, this poses a far more fundamental question: how much can the decisions of sovereign democratic countries be overruled by technology companies?

Toto, this isn't in Vegas anymore


So, a certain web browser from a certain company on its specific mobile OS, has long offered an "incognito" feature which promises it won't save browsing history, cookies, or form entries.

Because reasons, largely the absolute failure of any meaningful tab management in said browser, I use that mode neaarly exclusively --- otherwise tabs simply grow without limit, and pruning capabilities simply do not exist.

Periodic browser and OS crashes are of coursse annoying, but do have the side effect of ... affording a sort of tab management of last resort: the incognito session existing at the time of the crash is immolated.

Or at least that's the spec.

When my OS (rhymes with "Dan Floyd") crashed yesterday, taking down the browser (rhymes with "Drone"), I was startled to see ... numerous ... of tabs opened in an incognito session prepended to the default session tabset.

How many I'm not sure of (the browser makes assessing this all but impossible), though it seems that some are missing, or pershaps th... Show more...

InviZible Pro.


New version 4.2.2

Comprehensive application for online privacy and security.

Keeps privacy, prevents tracking, gets access to blocked and hidden on-line resources.

InviZible Pro uses DNSCrypt, Tor and Purple I2P to achieve maximum security, privacy and comfortable use of the Internet.

DNS is used by most applications to translate domain names into IP addresses to find a remote server with the site that you want to visit. But this communication is not encrypted and can be used by attackers. DNSCrypt encrypts and authenticates DNS traffic, thus preventing DNS tracking and spoofing.

Tor encrypts Internet traffic and hides your actual location. It uses thousands of computers around the world to mask your IP address and prevents activity tracking to preserve your privacy and anonymity. Tor also provides access to onion services. These are sites that are in a completely hidden network without censorship.

The Invisible Internet Project (I2P) is a hidden anonymous network. It includes thousands of computers distributed arou... Show more...
