Facebook is proprietary. Meaning nobody can audit the code. Therefore if Facebook claims to have e2e #encryption, that claim is unverifiable. It relies on trust. Security should never rely on trust. Do you really trust #Facebook to not have a backdoor?
Lol, the #solarwinds hack is being blamed on a scapegoat (an intern)... I guess nobody is to blame then for giving admin level privileges to that intern or not enforcing a strong password policy 😆
The reason why most smartphones don't have a headphone jack anymore is because when you have to rely on Bluetooth, you are far easier to track.
Getting rid of the headphone jack means less user #privacy.
2 features which make the #Fedilab app stand out above other #Mastodon clients -
1. Ability to follow local timelines from many different Mastodon servers, without needing an account on each server
2. Ability to follow people on the bird site who haven't yet moved over to Mastodon, without needing a bird site account

If you fork the #opensource #Signal app you cannot communicate with other Signal users who are on the official app. It would be a great idea to set up #decentralised Signal servers where users control their data, logs & can communicate with all Signal users. Many #infosec risks would be mitigated b/c it'd be distributed across hundreds of operators, across many countries, across various jurisdictions

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
Power is always gotten through inducing mass fear, whether by terrorism, pandemics or a rouge cop. Governments are abusing the crises to push a power grab & corporations are abusing the crises to consolidate more wealth. We are all loosing to centralisation of power & wealth. We are all being f*cked by governments & corporations. Yet somehow while the governments & corporations maintain unity, we turn against each other in bipartisanship. Governments & corporations are the real enemy.
End to end encryption in proprietary software (like WhatsApp) makes little to no sense. If it's not 100% FOSS, you cannot inspect the code, you cannot know if there's a backdoor in the encryption, you have to rely on trusting the company / developer. Doesn't matter if it's "mostly" open source (like Chrome/Telegram), all it takes is one line of code to exploit you. Security should never rely on trust.
