You should always be able to do what you want with the devices you buy. You own it, you pwn it. But you should never let an organization like Facebook pwn your device so it can watch you use TikTok. eff.org/deeplinks/2019/01/what

I think we should listen to billionaires LESS than everyone else, but

Next time someone tells you they’re a “privacy professional” ask “what kind?”

“Do you get paid to help protect my privacy or to erode it?”

Then ask them “who pays you? And how do they make their money?” And you’ll get your real answer.

Sometimes I wish I could share the amount of feelings that I had about capitalism and corporate bullshit that occurs on the job!

Some people are so so sucked in the capitalism society that we live in that they can't seem to see anything else. Feel sad for them.

Google/Facebook are to the health of our human rights and democracy what Philip Morris is to the health of our bodies and what Exxon Mobil is to the health of our habitat.

If you’re a doctor, you do not get sponsored by Big Tobacco. If you’re an environmentalist, you do not get sponsored by Exxon Mobil. If you’re a privacy advocate, a human rights activist, or a democrat, you do not get sponsored by Google, Facebook, or any other surveillance capitalist.

It’s that simple.

Facebook gets more disgusting every day. Now they've come up with a great idea, why don't we pay vulnerable kids and we can spy on them using a VPN?

Well done you're the gift who keeps on giving, what's next?

The more users learn what Facebook is doing, the more they can make informed decisions about their privacy, including putting pressure on companies and lawmakers to do better. eff.org/deeplinks/2019/01/guid

"Oh, you want any of the conveniences of modern smartphones? Cool, choose which of two global megacorps get access to all your most personal info."

We live in the worst cyberpunk future.

Felt so identified with this article from The Guardian, EU citizens are constantly having to live in uncertainty under this madness hostile environment that we currently have in the UK, for how long are we going to live this way? theguardian.com/uk-news/2019/j

Apps like Flo, Glow, Ovia, and Clue are monetising women’s extremely personal data! I find this behaviour extremely disgusting from this companies.

Facebook is rolling messaging between WhatsApp Instagram and Facebook messenger into one.

While Facebook claims that they will remain the encryption on the messages we don't know anything about profiles, contact lists and access.

Is this a good time to start moving to another service? I mostly use iMessage and Telegram but most of my contacts still use WhatsApp as default, what's your case?

(7) It's just another way for the UK government to surveil and control their citizens. The ways that the gov could use this data are literally endless. Even if you're at one end or the other I'm sure you wouldn't want your data to be profiled and kept so someone knows more about you.
