  1. A Telegram AI-bot that creates abusive images has been used to target more than 100,000 people, some of whom appear to be under the age of 18 Pornographic deepfakes are being weaponised at an alarming scale with at least 104,000 women targeted by a bot operating on the messaging app Telegram since July. The bot is used by thousands of people every month who use it to create nude images of friends and family members, some of whom appear to be under the age of 18. The still images of nude women are generated by an AI that ‘removes’ items of clothing from a no
  2. How Google's Android Keyboard Keeps ‘Smart Replies’ Private The latest Gboard feature needs to know as much as possible about your digital life to work—but doesn't share that data with Google. Illustration: Elena Lacey Google has infused its so-called Smart Reply feature, which uses machine learning to suggest words and sentences you may want to type next, into various email products for the last several years. But with Android 11, those cont

  4. Facebook warns that new privacy protections in iOS 14 will hurt parts of its business Facebook announced today the key steps it is taking to address major privacy changes introduced by iOS 14. Announced in June, Apple's latest operating system for iPhone will make it harder for businesses to track user data by preventing apps from collecting those data using Apple’s device identifier without their consent. The social networking giant said it will stop collecting the identifier for advertisers (IDFA) on its apps on devices that are eligible for iOS 14. Facebo
  5. How Facebook and Other Sites Manipulate Your Privacy Choices Social media platforms repeatedly use so-called dark patterns to nudge you toward giving away more of your data. Illustration: Sam Whitney In 2010, the Electronic Frontier Foundation was fed up with Facebook’s pushy interface. The platform had a way of coercing people into giving up more and more of their privacy. The question was, what to call that coercion? Zuckermining? Facebaiting? Was it a Zucke
  6. iOS 14’s Best Privacy Feature? Catching Data-Grabbing Apps Apple's new operating system hasn't been released to the public yet, but its new permission notifications are already shaming developers into cleaning up their acts. Photographer: Nelson Ching/Bloomberg/Getty Images With every iOS update, users gain more controls over what data that app developers can collect about them. The new iOS 14 is no different, except for one thing—it hasn’t
  7. How to Get Safari's New Privacy Features in Chrome and Firefox Apple's browser is getting serious about security protections. If you can't or won't switch, don't worry: You don't have to fall behind. You don't have to wait for macOS Big Sur to drop to get a lot of these upcoming features though—both Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome have similar features.Photograph: Apple Apple just unveiled a raft of changes coming with the new macOS Big Sur later this year.
  8. Facebook's New Privacy Controls Are Long Overdue The new Manage Activity feature will let you archive and bulk delete posts for the first time. Photograph: Bjarte Rettedal/Getty Images Throughout its 16 years of existence, Facebook has struggled to provide the privacy controls users really want and need to safeguard the data they post to the platform. It's been a challenging project, with plenty of major detours along the way. But today Faceb

  10. Just wanted to open a discussion in regards to building a somewhat secure PC or laptop in respect to privacy of the business/user. With everything slowly becoming closed source and with end users having no access to control the security of their systems (E:G - Spretre, Meltdown, Thunderbolt exploits, Intel Management Engine etc). I am very interested in building a computer that runs on open-source system software such as Linux, and has full access to CPU firmware code with features such as Libreboot or Coreboot. This has been something I have been researching for a while. Woul
  11. The VPN industry has exploded over the past few years. Fuelled by a greater awareness of online security, a desire to watch geo-restricted content, and yes, piracy, more people are hiding their online identities than ever. But did you know that many VPN providers are owned by the same few companies? A report from The Best VPN, shared exclusively with TNW, looks at five companies in particular — Avast, AnchorFree, StackPath, Gaditek and Kape Technologies. It found that over the past few years, these companies have acquired a total of 19 smaller players in the VPN space, including HideM
  12. The Zoom Privacy Backlash Is Only Getting Started A class action lawsuit. Rampant zoombombing. And as of today, two new zero-day vulnerabilities. Even before the pandemic, Zoom had a reputation for prioritizing ease of use over security and privacy.Photographer: Kena Betancur/Getty Images The popular video conferencing application Zoom has been having A Moment during the Covid-19 pandemic. But it's not all positive. As many people's professional and social liv
  13. Personal privacy matters during a pandemic — but less than it might at other times Public health weighs individual privacy against the common good Photo by JASON REDMOND/AFP via Getty Images During a disease outbreak, one of the best tools at the disposal of public health officials is low-tech detective work. When a person is diagnosed with an illness like COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus, public health experts figure out where they’ve recently been and track down everyone they’ve been in contac
  14. Study finds Brave to be the most private browser Are you concerned about your web browser sending data back to the company that created it? A new study, Web Browser Privacy: What Do Browsers Say When They Phone Home?, looked at the six popular desktop web browsers Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Edge (Chromium-based), Apple Safari, Brave, and Yandex, to uncover what these browsers send back to the mothership. If you just want the result, the study found that used out of the box, Brave "is by far the most private of the browsers studied" followed by Chrome, Fi
  15. Firefox is showing the way back to a world that’s private by default Tracking shouldn’t be the norm Illustration by Alex Castro / The Verge One of the nice things about looking at the full scope of tech news for the day is that two stories that you otherwise wouldn’t think to connect end up playing off each other perfectly. So it was today with the following pieces of news. First, Firefox is turning on a controversial new encryption methodology by default in the US. Second, Amazon is ex
  16. Prevent Facebook from tracking you around the web. The Facebook Container extension for Firefox helps you take control and isolate your web activity from Facebook. What does it do? Facebook Container works by isolating your Facebook identity into a separate container that makes it harder for Facebook to track your visits to other websites with third-party cookies. How does it work? Installing this extension closes your Facebook tabs, deletes your Facebook cookies, and logs you out of Facebook. The next time you navigate to Facebook it will

  18. With the launch of a new national cyber strategy, President Donald Trump has authorized the use of “offensive cyber operations” against U.S. adversaries, National Security Adviser John Bolton told reporters on Thursday. The U.S. hopes by deploying offensive measures it can deter cyberattacks targeting critical infrastructure and other systems, Bolton said, by demonstrating to adversaries that the cost “is higher than they want to bear.” In a letter, Trump said the new guidelines demonstrated his commitment to securing America from digital threats. “It is a c
  19. Facebook’s founder is facing pressure to accept an invite from eight international parliaments, with lawmakers wanting to question him about negative impacts his social network is having on democratic processes globally. Last week Facebook declined an invitation from five of these parliaments. The elected representatives of Facebook users want Mark Zuckerberg to answer questions in the wake of a string of data misuse and security scandals attached to his platform. The international parliaments have joined forces — forming a grand committee — to amp up the pressure on
  20. Google Chrome is the most popular browser in the world. Chrome routinely leads the pack in features for security and usability, most recently helping to drive the adoption of HTTPS. But when it comes to privacy, specifically protecting users from tracking, most of its rivals leave it in the dust. Users are more aware of, and concerned about, the harms of pervasive tracking than ever before. So why is Chrome so far behind? It’s because Google still makes most of its money from tracker-driven, behaviorally-targeted ads. The marginal benefit of each additional bit of infor

  22. Privacy, keeping things separate, and IoT, connecting everything, may never be truly compatible. Nonetheless, manufacturers, developers, and end-users must still try to ensure privacy in an increasingly interconnected world. We call it the Internet of Things (IoT), but what we often really mean is the Internet of Personal Data. If data is the new oil, then personal data is the lubricant of IoT. Internet-connected devices are awash with sensitive information. And in the age of hyper-connectivity, we are feeling the brunt of the inexorable connection between data a

Difficulty: ⚫⚪⚪⚪⚪ Tracking on Discord You do not realize it but Discord tracks every mouse click and keypress you do.

  24. The secrecy surrounding the work was unheard of at Google. It was not unusual for planned new products to be closely guarded ahead of launch. But this time was different. The objective, code-named Dragonfly, was to build a search engine for China that would censor broad categories of information about human rights, democracy, and peaceful protest. In February 2017, during one of the first group meetings about Dragonfly at Google’s Mountain View headquarters in California, some of those present were left stunned by what they heard. Senior executives disclosed that the se
  25. In Changing Our Approach To Anti-Tracking, Mozilla revealed plans to improve the privacy protection of Firefox users and the performance of the browser through the improved implementation of content blocking in the web browser. Firefox will protect users by blocking tracking by default and improve performance at the same time according to Mozilla. We reviewed the new content blocking options that Mozilla tests in Firefox Nightly currently already in July. The new feature, called Content Blocking in Nightly, integrates Firefox's long standing feature Tracking Protection
