Meaningful Connection: Fuck You.
Consumer Action: Domain blocked.
If Brave is such a privacy oriented browser, why does it still call the domain googleapis.com ??
Have you been pwned by haveibeenpwned.com ?
Yes, you have by Cloudflare, Google and Microsoft.
It's a great way to let Google know that you are checking on your hacked Facebook account with the email address or phone number they didn't know about before ;)
Have I been Zucked? Have I been Pwned? Have I been Facebooked?
Have I have been exploited for years by Facebook yet have learned no lesson at all and will eagerly put in my most precious piece of personal information into a random web site to find out whether I have been exploited by Facebook for years?
Apple ID password limit is a mere 32 characters, hardly long enough for a decent passphrase.
Because the FBI complained about having to crack longer ones?
The real news in the just released Firefox 87 is not the https referrer change, but the new "Smart Block" feature:
"SmartBlock will silently stand in for a number of common scripts classified as trackers on the Disconnect Tracking Protection List"
in Firefox Private Browsing and Strict Mode
IOW this SUBSTITUTES some code from third party sites with local code written by Mozilla.
The road to hell is paved with good intentions.
Anyone recommend a privacy respecting invoicing/time-tracking tool for freelancers / small businesses?
Something based in EU if possible.
From the "Your privacy is important to us." Department:
"We have no interest in selling your data or using it for sleazy purposes."
Then why do you by your own admission use:
Microsoft App Center
and last and least of all they are living in the past, since " There is a data protection agreement between the EU an the USA called the EU-US Privacy Shield"
Um, not no more.
"Please verify you're a human to continue."
Okay! I will: surveil me as I take my money and business elsewhere.
Trackers in Jitsi you never consented to:
In case you were wondering....
Oh my, Reddit seems to be blocking Tor with a 503 error. From EU and US.
Nothing to see here, folks, move along, move along...
is there an ethical, privacy respecting audio/video conferencing service out there? In the EU?
Matrix itself isn't (Google), Element isn't (UK), Jitsi isn't (US).
Free isn't necessary, I am happy to pay. But #privacy respecting is.
Downloaded Element to set up a Matrix account.
It uses Google Recaptcha - if you block Google domains, you can't sign up.
So you run an open source tool but use a proprietary, privacy destroying tool to control it? You are part of the problem not the solution.
When I try to put in a query in the contact form to Element if this is true on their hosted instances, I can't because it uses Cloudflare.
Jitsi.org has both Facebook and Google trackers in it.
Jitsi Meet (https://meet.jit.si/) doesn't but it does use Amplitude as a tracker: https://help.amplitude.com/hc/en-us/articles/115003135607-Tracking-Unique-Users
JItsi is owned by a US (California) company called 8x8 - their "privacy" policy https://www.8x8.com/terms-and-conditions/privacy-policy is the usual suspects: they can share what they like including to its "group companies" which is getting to be very long list: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/8x8
Sorry, I'll take my #privacy elsewhere.
Not to mention the obvious that such "popular third party login providers" means Google and Facebook!
Those are among the most common tracking devices around.
And Firefox allows those because it someone magically knows I "intend" to use them???
More #privacy compromises from Firefox ...
Firefox 86 cookie protection has an HUGE HOLE in it:
"Total Cookie Protection makes a limited exception for cross-site cookies when they are needed for non-tracking purposes, such as those used by popular third-party login providers. Only when Total Cookie Protection detects that you intend to use a provider, will it give that provider permission to use a cross-site cookie specifically for the site you’re currently visiting"
How does it "detect" what I "intend"?
Number of clicks it takes in Safari to clear out your browsing data:
1) Safari menu
4) Manage website data
5) Remove all
My finger is broken now. It needs to rest.
Number of clicks it takes in Firefox to clear out your browsing data:
