Top 10 Privacy Tweaks You Should Know About

Top 10 Google Settings You Should Know About @teklife: birthers, truthers, and now goobers. i read your ridiculous article. the best example was stolen porn passwords? if you have a porn addiction so rough that you actually PAY for it, you get what the hell you deserve. if youre entrusting your credit card number, your lively hood and your career to people who make money videoing MMF-BBW-DP, then youre already lost. privacy is not a right. not only is your data bounced thru like a gazillion locations every second, but you dont' have to Googfle EVERYTHING. get your sicko, child porn fix on usenet or something. don't whine because google is tracking you so that they can cater to your ad needs. thats how they make their money. go to a paid porno-freak search provider. do something, but realize this much: no one cares what you do on the internets. unless, of course, you google how to rob a bank and then google how to get away from a bank job. @Demonicume: I didn't see anything dark about all that.

Stealing Your Address Book by Dustin Curtis It’s not really a secret, per se, but there’s a quiet understanding among many iOS app developers that it is acceptable to send a user’s entire address book, without their permission, to remote servers and then store it for future reference. It’s common practice, and many companies likely have your address book stored in their database. Obviously, there are lots of awesome things apps can do with this data to vastly improve user experience. But it is also a breach of trust and an invasion of privacy. I did a quick survey of 15 developers of popular iOS apps, and 13 of them told me they have a contacts database with millons of records. One company’s database has Mark Zuckerberg’s cell phone number, Larry Ellison’s home phone number and Bill Gates' cell phone number. There are two major questions to ask about this behavior: First, why does Apple allow iOS apps to access a user’s entire address book, at any time, without permission? There was similar outrage last year, when Kik was outed.

Without a Trace: Turn Your Flash Drive into a Portable Privacy Toolkit @parabellum2000: Here, Here! While I might get frustrated from time to time with the limitations of web access at my school (I have to download a YouTube video from home and bring it in if I want to use it in a lesson), I understand why they exist and, frankly, I work too hard and too much to have time to putz around with tunneling through the firewall. Not to mention that I like my job, I like the IT guys, and they know I know what I'm doing. I wouldn't be surprised, if a student set up a SSH tunnel on a library computer, if they came to me to ask if I knew anything about it. Even when I worked behind a desk entering orders all day, there were ways to make it more interesting, and I was able to keep myself busy adding value for the company. (That is, after all, what they pay me for.) You want to play your own music in your office? @tchrman35: A CD Player?

70 Things Every Computer Geek Should Know. | Arrow Webzine The term ‘geek’, once used to label a circus freak, has morphed in meaning over the years. What was once an unusual profession transferred into a word indicating social awkwardness. As time has gone on, the word has yet again morphed to indicate a new type of individual: someone who is obsessive over one (or more) particular subjects, whether it be science, photography, electronics, computers, media, or any other field.

Facebook working on 'simple' privacy settings | Politics and Law After one of the most tumultuous months in its young history, Facebook is planning to announce features intended to offer its hundreds of millions of users simpler privacy choices. The last few weeks have not been kind to the Internet's second most popular Web site, which has been pilloried by privacy activists and slammed by some members of Congress. The flap has spawned clever interactive graphics showing how Facebook has gradually exposed more user data, tools to fix your privacy settings, and reports of internal discord among employees who may fear that the negative attention would jeopardize a lucrative public stock offering. A Facebook spokesman on Friday confirmed that the changes will arrive "shortly," without elaborating. "The messages we've received are pretty clear," Andrew Noyes said. "Users appreciate having precise and comprehensive controls, but want them to be simpler and easier to use. The danger here lies, as it often does, in regulatory overreach.

How to turn an old PC into a media centre There are a scary number of ways of playing back your library of movies and music through a TV screen. You can stream them over the LAN via a games console, play them directly from the cloud on an Internet ready TV or simply hook up your laptop via an HDMI cable. You can even play directly off of your iPod. Many go down the route of least resistance and opt for a do-it-all entertainment on demand set-top box, such as Sky+ or BT Vision, paying a monthly subscription so they never have to get their hands the slightest bit dirty with an extra cable or two. Nothing, however, has yet displaced building your own media centre to sit at the side of your TV as the ultimate symbol of home hackery. In the case of a set-top streamer, for example, you still need a separate server, running up your electricity bill and presenting a low to medium fire hazard, somewhere in the house or garden. So you've decided to build a media centre? For the heat issues alone, we're going to avoid them. Quiet your noise

Tracking the Trackers: Where Everybody Knows Your Username Click the local Home Depot ad and your email address gets handed to a dozen companies monitoring you. Your web browsing, past, present, and future, is now associated with your identity. Swap photos with friends on Photobucket and clue a couple dozen more into your username. Keep tabs on your favorite teams with Bleacher Report and you pass your full name to a dozen again. This isn't a 1984-esque scaremongering hypothetical. [Update 10/11: Since several readers have asked – this study was funded exclusively by Stanford University and research grants to the Stanford Security Lab. Background on Third-Party Web Tracking and Anonymity In a post on the Stanford CIS blog two months ago, Arvind Narayanan explained how third-party web tracking is not at all anonymous. In the language of computer science, clickstreams – browsing histories that companies collect – are not anonymous at all; rather, they are pseudonymous. A third party is also a first party, e.g. Web Information Leakage Methodology

La Freedom Box ou la petite boîte qui voulait que l'Internet restât libre Paradoxes apparents. Peut-on simultanément souhaiter la fermeture des données et l’ouverture d’Internet ? Peut-on se féliciter du rôle joué par Facebook et Twitter en Tunisie ou en Égypte tout en affirmant que ces sites sont à très court terme dangereux pour ceux qui les utilisent ? C’est cette double problématique qui est au cœur de la FreedomBox Foundation, le nouveau projet du brillant juriste de la FSF Eben Moglen qui fait régulièrement l’objet de billets sur ce blog. Et la solution qu’il nous propose est aussi simple que de brancher son chargeur de téléphone, à ceci près que c’est alors un mini serveur que nous mettons dans la prise (sous OS libre évidemment)[1] Il est ici question de nos données personnelles, de notre vie en ligne, de notre manière de communiquer et d’interagir avec les autres. Personne ne nous a obligés. Que se passe-t-il le jour où ces quelques sites sont rendus volontairement ou non inaccessibles ? Ils nous auront prévenus en tout cas…

Three Cool Tools for Restoring Your Facebook Privacy - PCWorld Well, it seems all this complaining about Facebook’s laissez faire attitude toward its users’ privacy has finally gotten their attention. According to published reports, the company called an “all hands meeting” to discuss the controversy last week. And what has come of that meeting? Apparently a lot of soul searching, rending of garments, and gnashing of teeth, per a report in the Wall Street Journal. So leave it to some clever entrepreneurs to do what Facebook has so far refused to do: Put back the privacy protections Facebook just took away. First up, there’s ReclaimPrivacy, which can scan your Facebook settings and let you know where you’re at risk. Of course, Scan for Privacy leaves it up to you to decide how to change your settings.

I'm Dick Sutphen and this tape is a studio-recorded, expanded version of a talk I delivered at the World Congress of Professional Hypnotists Convention in Las Vegas, Nevada. Although I've been interviewed about the subject on many local and regional radio and TV talk shows, large-scale mass communication appears to be blocked, since it could result in suspicion or investigation of the very media presenting it or the sponsors that support the media. Everything I will relate only exposes the surface of the problem. In talking about this subject, I am talking about my own business. Charles J. Alright.

Hundreds of websites share usernames sans permission High performance access to file storage Home Depot, The Wall Street Journal, Photobucket, and hundreds of other websites share visitor's names, usernames, or other personal information with advertisers or other third parties, often without disclosing the practice in privacy policies, academic researchers said. Sixty-one percent of websites tested by researchers from Stanford Law School's Center for Internet and Society leaked the personal information, sometimes to dozens of third-party partners. Home Depot, for example, disclosed the first names and email addresses of visitors who clicked on an ad to 13 companies. The report comes as US officials have proposed a mandatory Do Not Track option for all websites. In the report, Jonathan Mayer, a Stanford graduate student who led the study, argued against the claim that the online tracking is anonymous. “We believe there is now overwhelming evidence that third-party web tracking is not anonymous,” he wrote.

FreedomBox Foundation Why Facebook Must Get Serious About Privacy Dallas Lawrence is Managing Director of Burson-Marsteller’s Proof Integrated Communications. He is a Mashable contributor on emerging media trends, online reputation management and digital issue advocacy. You can connect with him on Twitter @dallaslawrence. The recent firestorm over Facebook’s approach to securing the privacy of its more than 450 million users continues to reverberate around the globe this week as thousands of news outlets cover the unfolding drama with almost breathless zeitgeist. And while traditional outlets are grappling with what it all means for the future of Facebook, online denizens have trumpeted their angst about the company’s most recent changes with more than 25 million blog posts. The current crisis of confidence leveled against Facebook once again centers on the core issue of how the social networking platform manages access to its users' information. The Lessons Facebook Can Learn from Google Transparency is Key to Facebook's Maturation
