[Video] You Should Delete Your Whatsapp ASAP

TheHatedOne tells us why no one should be using Whatsapp.

Consumer Data Protection is a Distraction

“User data is protected by the strict privacy laws of (insert country here)”, “We don’t log your IP, trust us!” and “We provide next-generation security!” are all industry lies. Don’t fall for them. No one knows how to fully secure data on a computer let alone an entire organization. Businesses can’t protect your data. Don’t give it to them.

[Video] TikTok - a Trojan Horse into China's Dystopia

If you’re a US-based company that endangers national security through personal data collection and manipulation of public opinion through propoganda (Facebook) you get a slap on the wrist from the FTC while the NSA pats you on the back. If you’re a Chinese-based company doing more or less the same (ByteDance) you get an executive order banning you from doing business in the United States.

The Privacy Paradox

The more steps you take to enhance your privacy, the more interesting you become to 3 letter agencies and the more likely that more targeted surveillance methods will be used on you. So should you just give up your privacy or should you go all out? What’s the optimal strategy?

Stop Amazon's Police State

Amazon’s Orwellian Surveillance Hellscape

Amazon is providing police departments with warrantless access to thousands of Ring doorbell cameras giving cops unpredecented, persistent surveillance capabilities of private homes and neighborhoods. This is yet another dangerous partnership between the empire of the megacorporations and the state.

Avoiding Consumer Surveillance

Your purchases are being tracked. What you buy, where you buy it, when you buy it and what else you buy along with it. Consumer surveillance must end for privacy’s sake. In this post I teach you how to avoid it from an individual perspective.

Raising the Bar on Privacy

The central premise of this post is: Even if you believe that “privacy is dead”, you still have every reason to make surveillance more difficult for Big Brother. Resistance is not futile. If you accept that it is, you’re playing into the hands of the surveillance state. Surveillance on all of us is far too easy therefore we need to raise the bar on privacy.
