Goodbye, passwords in OnionShare! The new version (out today!) replaces HTTP basic auth with private keys. Check it out. https://micahflee.com/2021/09/goodbye-passwords-in-onionshare/
It is worth noting that auto-delete capabilities are built into Mastodon as of version v3.5.0 which is really cool!
The settings can be found in Settings => Automated post deletion (or by visiting /statuses_cleanup on your instance)

My latest article:
Russia is Losing a War Against Hackers Stealing Huge Amounts of Data
Dozens of Russian companies and government agencies have been hacked in apparent retribution for the invasion of Ukraine.
I've been working on this story on how location-tracking firm Anomaly Six proposed to combine its surveillance with Twitter firehose partner Zignal Labs for a long time and it's finally up.
I woke up this morning to find a Twitter thread I posted yesterday about the massive number of hacks against Russia, and DDoSecrets, went viral. It's at 20k likes and notifications are scrolling by way too fast to follow https://twitter.com/micahflee/status/1516521193808875527?t=vpQBgml3tWONQfCFIFBthg&s=19
NEW: Doorbell cameras record audio 20-30 feet away, per @ConsumerReports. If you live near these devices, conversations you have on sidewalks or in parked cars may be sitting on Amazon's servers. https://www.consumerreports.org/video-doorbells/video-doorbell-cameras-record-audio-too-a4636115889/

Only 82% of the app is translated into Arabic, and only at 33% of the documentation (at https://docs.onionshare.org) is. If you speak Arabic and have some free time, it would be great to get these to 100%.
