Almost daily, new issues of concern are discovered or revealed that affect your digital privacy.  These should not be ignored.  This blog attempts to amplify the issue and suggest a solution.

Exposed and Under Assault

Naked and exposed. Freedom of expression is under assault.  My opinion, if not your opinion, may be subject to actions that attempt to suppress.  Intolerance of a viewpoint, however benign or offensive, is subject to outrage.  Implicit violence, doxing, bullying, shaming and so forth.  Ignorance often times is the companion of the extreme expressions.  The ignorance of incomplete information or the parroting of misinformation of others contributes to conflict.  How is it that a passionate ill informed position, even if held by many, merits consideration?

There is a time for exposure and a time for privacy.  The choice should always be yours.  We now realize that our privacy is also under assault.  Our digital experience is being ruthlessly surveilled by any app we use, any website we visit, any smartphone we carry.  Encryption, disinformation and stealth systems are your very best protections.  All of who you are need not be exposed and assaulted.

Disposable Emails and Burner Phone Numbers

Using disposable emails and burner phone numbers could be part of your privacy system.  Using disposable emails in replying to dubious sources may be a great idea, protecting your real identity from SPAM and perhaps worse.  Likewise doing the same with burner phone numbers, perhaps for a blind date or other connection where it is not initially known how things might go.  Protect yourself from being stalked or truly identified.  This DOES NOT protect your physical phone from being identified by sophisticated or determined adversaries.
