  1. Google is making it easier to disable Gmail data collection for smart features Google has announced that its Gmail service will soon provide a new setting to let users decide whether they want their data to be used in order to enable smart features across Google services. The ability to disable these smart features was already available, but with the new experience, it should help users more easily understand when they're disabling data collection and processing by Google. Google has added some smart features to Gmail over time, such as smart compose and the tabbed

  3. Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) introduced a bill Wednesday aimed at creating federal standards of privacy protection for major internet companies like Facebook, Amazon, and Google. The bill, titled the American Data Dissemination Act, requires the Federal Trade Commission to make suggestions for regulation based on the Privacy Act of 1974. Congress would then have to pass legislation within two years, or the FTC will gain the power to write the rules itself (under current laws, the FTC can only enforce existing rules). While Rubio’s bill is intended to reign i
  4. An analysis of 11,430 Play Store apps found that 14.2% used a privacy policy with contradicting statements about user data collection practices. A large number of Android mobile apps listed on the official Google Play Store contain self-contradictory language in their privacy policies in regards to data collection practices. In an academic study published last year, researchers created a tool named PolicyLint that analyzed the language used in the privacy policies of 11,430 Play Store apps. They found that 14.2% (1,618 apps) contained a privacy
  5. Don’t worry. They want it to be safe.🤣 Justin Paine sits in a pub in Oakland, California, searching the internet for your most sensitive data. It doesn't take him long to find a promising lead. On his laptop, he opens Shodan, a searchable index of cloud servers and other internet-connected devices. Then he types the keyword "Kibana," which reveals more than 15,000 databases stored online. Paine starts digging through the results, a plate of chicken tenders and fries growing cold next to him. "This one's from Russia. This one's from China," Paine said. "This one is j
  6. Faces for cookware: data collection industry flourishes as China pursues AI ambitions PINGDINGSHAN, China (Reuters) - In a village in central China’s Henan province, amid barking dogs and wandering chickens, villagers gather along a dirt road to trade images of their faces for kettles, pots and tea cups. At the front of the line, a woman stands in front of a camera zip-tied to a tripod. She holds a photograph of her head with the eyes and the nose cut out in front of her face and slowly rotates side to side. Villagers waiting their turn take a numbere
  7. Over the weekend, privacy concern were raised regarding how Microsoft Edge is uploading the URLs to SmartScreen without hashing them first. After further testing by BleepingComputer, we learned that Windows 10 also transmits a great deal of potentially sensitive information about your applications to SmartScreen when you attempt to run them. Over the weekend, security researcher Matt Weeks spotted Microsoft Edge sending the URL of a site being visited to SmartScreen. When sent this, this URL was not obfuscated or hashed in any way. which raised concerns that Microsoft
  8. Two House lawmakers are pushing an amendment that would effectively defund a massive data collection program run by the National Security Agency unless the government promises to not intentionally collect data of Americans. The bipartisan amendment — just 15 lines in length — would compel the government to not knowingly collect communications — like emails, messages and browsing data — on Americans without a warrant. Reps. Justin Amash (R-MI, 3rd) and Zoe Lofgren (D-CA, 19th) have already garnered the support from some of the largest civil liberties and ri
  9. A year on from launch, Click looks at the impact of GDPR, and how getting access to your data may still not be as easy as you think.
  10. Apple pitches itself as the most privacy-minded of the big tech companies, and indeed it goes to great lengths to collect less data than its rivals. Nonetheless, the iPhone maker will still know plenty about you if you use many of its services: In particular, Apple knows your billing information and all the digital and physical goods you have bought from it, including music, movie and app purchases. A different approach: But even for heavy users, Apple uses a number of techniques to either minimize how much data it has or encrypt it so that Apple doesn't have access to
  11. Google has far more data about us than Facebook. Yet unlike Mark Zuckerberg’s social networking empire, which has been under fire for improperly leaking user data, Google has sidestepped controversy. You may wonder: Why is that? After all, we turn to Google for not only our internet searches but also for our emails, calendaring, maps, photo uploads, video streaming, mobile phones and web browsers. That’s far more pervasive than the baby photos and comments that we post on Facebook. To help get an answer, I downloaded a copy of all of the information that Google has on me.
  12. Microsoft’s Obscure ‘Self Service for Mobile’ Office Activation Microsoft requires a product activation after installing. Users of Microsoft Office currently are facing trouble during telephone activation. After dealing with this issue, I came across another obscure behavior, Microsoft’s ‘Self Service for Mobile’ solution to activate Microsoft Office via mobile devices. Microsoft describes how to activate Microsoft Office 2013, 2016 and Office 365 within this document. There are several possibilities to activate an installed product, via Internet or via Telephone for in
