Google Is Testing Its Controversial New Ad Targeting Tech in Millions of Browsers.


Here’s What We Know. - Bennett Cyphers, Electronic Frontier Foundation.
Google launched an “origin trial” of Federated Learning of Cohorts (aka FLoC), its experimental new technology for targeting ads.
Google’s launch of this trial—without notice to the individuals who will be part of the test, much less their consent—is a concrete breach of user trust in service of a technology that should not exist.
Google has failed to address the harms of FLoC, or even to convince us that they can be addressed. Instead, it's running a test that will share new data about millions of unsuspecting users.
This is another step in the wrong direction.

DuckDuckGo blockiert Googles FLoC per Erweiterung

Googles Cookie-Ersatz FLoC steht vielfach in der Kritik. Die Suchmaschine DuckDuckGo bietet deshalb eine Erweiterung, die das neue Tracking verhindert.

Alternativ: nicht den Chrome Browser verwenden...

Eine erfreuliche Nachricht gegen den stark kritisierten Google Cookie-Ersatz »FLoC«.

uBlock Origin blockt »FLoC« ab dem kommenden Release: 1.34.1.

Auf uBlock Origin ist einfach verlass. 💪

Ansonsten den Google Chrome Browser, den ich nebenbei niemanden empfehle, einfach nicht nutzen, da Google ungefragt den Nutzern »FLoC« unter Google Chrome ausrollt.

I have had a free account with ProtonMail for some time. It's very difficult to get others to get one to allow end-to-end #encryption.

#Google: Overall, we felt that #blocking third-party #cookies outright without viable alternatives for the ecosystem was irresponsible, and even harmful, to the free and open web we all enjoy.

And that, my dear users, is what you get when you have paralysed your last brain cells with cocaine in a global corporation and believe your own propaganda. Whoever believes that freedom on the internet would be endangered without third-party cookies is unfortunately hopelessly trapped in the capitalist filter bubble and far beyond good and evil.

Reminder of why #Signal is far from optimal:

- No #anonymity (every account is connected to a phone number)
- Not #opensource (the git repo of the server hasn't been updated in a year)
- No #decentralization
- No web client, and max. 1 mobile client per account
- No #privacy (your entire contact list is uploaded to the server. It's encrypted, but it's trivial to brute-force encrypted phone numbers. You can prevent it by disabling the PIN feature, but it's enabled by default without warning.)

Can anyone give some (indept) explanation or links to #documentation about these #privacy concerns?

Yes, they patched it, but I still don't like #Keybase, also because it was (partially) bought by #Zoom. I use the decentralized solution @keyoxide for this and yes it is more complex but you only do this once and then you have it. Apart from that there should now be a #shell #script for it.

Oh my, Reddit seems to be blocking Tor with a 503 error. From EU and US.

It seems like Fairphone is gaining momentum and increase sale of their google free fully repairable mobile phones.


"Fairphone was founded in 2013 with the goal of building sustainable smartphones that are environmentally friendly and fair to the people who make them. The phone is designed to be repairable by favoring screws instead of glue and having major components broken out into modules that are easily replaceable.

The Fairphone 2 and 3 are the only devices with a 10-out-of-10 repairability score from iFixit. Fairphone even sells spare parts directly on its website: a new screen is €90 euros, a new battery is €30, and a replacement USB-C port is €20. The company also advocates for worker's welfare in the smartphone supply chain, with a focus on sourcing non-conflict minerals and a paying workers a living wage. The Fairphone 3 is still made in China, but it's assembled by Arima, which is working with Fairphone to improve workers' conditions."

Schweiz: Permanentes Smart Metering greift in Grundrechte ein

Das höchste Schweizer Gericht erklärt einen 'smarten' Wasserzähler für unzulässig, der alle 30 Sekunden Daten sammelt. Das seien unverhältnismäßig viele Daten.

https://www.heise.de/news/Schweiz-Permanentes-Smart-Metering-greift-in-Grundrechte-ein-5054258.html

Nicht existente Daten können nicht missbraucht werden, urteilte das Gericht. Daher gelte das Prinzip der Datensparsamkeit und Zweckmäßigkeit.

Das kann man offensichtlich nicht oft genug betonen.
