Federal government attempts to invade your online privacy!

The Department of Justice (DoJ) wants all visitors’ IP addresses – some 1.3 million – to a website that helped organise a protest on the day of President Trump’s inauguration.  This is an attempt by federal government to learn your online behavior and use it against you.  Agreeing or disagreeing with the motive is not what is at issue.  The issue is the continual erosion of online privacy.

DreamHost is currently refusing to comply with the request and is due in court later this month.

Any risk, to you the individual, could have been mitigated by using some of the techniques shown on this site.  By having used just a VPN, the IP gathered would be essentially meaningless to feds.  Get started protecting yourself.

Walmart apparently advises tech suppliers not to use AWS

Clear evidence of the fierce competition between Walmart and Amazon when Walmart advises its tech suppliers not to use AWS.  There is more to this though.  Does AWS respect the privacy of not only the data of suppliers but also the tools and techniques used?  Good reason for Walmart to be suspicious.  Amazon got a leg up years ago as big corporations used Amazon’s digital services when they were just selling books.  They used this experience with companies to learn and opportunistically take advantage of the expertise of others.

Google to stop reading GMail for Ads Personalization.

Google claims to not be reading your GSuite email for Ad personalization already and plans to extend this to its free GMail users later this year.  Users are starting to recognize the intrusiveness of Google into your privacy.  I suggest you take control of your own privacy by removing Google from your digital life.  They apparently gather data on you in many almost invisible ways.  Using maps, searches and many other ways to form a partial profile on you and then buy additional information to create knowledge of you greater than you know.

Google Dominates Online Advertising – Chrome To Block Ads ???

Google announced it will introduce an ad blocker to its Chrome browser. As the dominant online ad provider…huh??  Well it appears that they are not really going to do this but instead it’ll only block ads on pages that are determined to have too many annoying or intrusive advertisements, like videos that autoplay with sound or interstitials that take up the entire screen.  OK so something like 27% of browsers are already trying to block ads with ad blocking software.  A newer browser call BRAVE appears to block them all including trackers.  Check it out.  This is about YOUR privacy.  See more on the Google “ad blocking” initiative.

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.

 

Solutions to consider include:

Disposable Emails

Spamex.com

Spamgourmet.com

E4ward.com

Mailinator.com

Burner Phone Numbers

From iPhone App Store or Google Play, consider such products as Burner, LoudCloud and Shuffle.
