Why does my remote control need to know my location? – Terence Eden’s Blog

Why does my remote control need to know my location?
 
#facebook promising better #privacy to us is like #microsoft promising that it will "love Linux"

Companies with shareholders do not do what's against their business model. They'd get sued if they did. By shareholders.
 
Notice how, over the years, #privacy policy became "data protection" (retention, limits etc.)

Because they don't say they'll stop collecting/demanding some data. They just basically tell us, "trust what we do; we'll keep your secrets safe!" (they don't, e.g. third parties, no accountability)
 
A lot of people have been conditioned to think #privacy does not really matter much unless you're a criminal. I had a chat about it yesterday with a German diplomat, who says the US has taken this to new extremes and grossly abuses it.

German diplomat commended me today for my work on #privacy noting that it's "very important". He told me that on his 'phone' he switches "location" off, but I broke his heart when I told him this setting gets ignored by Google. AP confirmed it.

Stop Saying, ‘We Take Your Privacy and Security Seriously’


In my years covering cybersecurity, there’s one variation of the same lie that floats above the rest. “We take your privacy and security seriously.” You might have heard the phrase here and there.…

Tor fingerprints thousands of users who download its phone apps to Android


This is shocking and depressing.

Tor’s Android app download pages are laden with Google trackers!

As we can see by these screen grabs of the Guardian Project’s secure apps page, their syndication deal with the Big G means there are two Google tracker requests on this page (from 2 Google embeds, Gstatic and GoogleAPIs)

Google APIs tends to employ different Google bits like fonts and can be made safe if tweaked by the website's developers, but Gstatic is a collector.

I haven’t checked the HTML but these are probably loaded by the Google widget, bottom... show more

In the past I have spoken about the importance of owning and controlling your data and here's just one more reason why that is important: #Twitter keeps your Direct Messages (DMs) after the user deletes them and they are accessible internally and could be retreived by third parties such as crackers or even the Government with a warrant.

We should be more cautious and discerning about the data we hand over to these companies and this is one more reason why we should be supporting more open, federated networks and ensuring we are using the right tools to secure our personal and private conversations.

"Thanks again for using us in the past, and look out for an even better Booking.com experience in the future."

So they now herald that they're selling all historical data, infringing people's #privacy even more. But they tell you, so it's OK? #bookingcom
 
Companies update their #privacy (or #surveillance rather) policy and retroactively apply this abuse without asking for consent or giving one the option to opt out. They do this because their corporate lawyers tell them they risk lawsuits for selling data piles.

It's hard not to ignore an issue when you're paid to ignore it. Days ago Andrew Heinzman pretended the perceived issue with 'smart' meters was health, not a word about #privacy

This site gets its money from #cia -connected spying giant #amazon
 
Pro- #surveillance site #howtogeek asking the wrong question, as usual, and likely intentionally. It is about #privacy and not health. Second time in a few days Andrew Heinzman does this.
