Do you trust you government ?
Do you trust any of its agencies ?

DO you believe in bank system ?

If you read this topic, I don't think , but how do you really text in a usual day ?

Do you think WhatsApp it's really the solution ( because its end-to-end cryptography) ?

Are you still using Chrome ?

[ I got to tell you - I've just watched the "Deep Web" http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3312868/ and "the internet's own boy http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3268458/ so I'm very angry ]

The real problem I think we are too busy and to lazy to pay attention on it: you can it start now.

Just:
- use Duckduckgo as search engine
- navigate with Tor ( I know it is slower but it's for your privacy )
- use Toxchat or whatsoever
- you're good to go

None can steal your information anymore.

You can do it. Right now

Any other suggestion guys ?

I dont need more reasons than you just posted right there. Not wanting the government in my business is enough for me. It seems like we are headed down the path of the government knowing everything about us and that

is really scary as their is no privacy whatsoever! I do hope we can come together fight this change in our society and protect ourselves moving forward. There should be no reason why governments need such information on

their citizens.

I wish all these recommendations you are making were enough.
One of the problems is: people just don't care enough about their privacy to protect it. In order to be "like everybody else", connected and up-to-date with the news, they just ignore these privacy issues.

Do not trust the government

Not trusting companies and governments is crucial for security as well. Privacy and security often go together.
You should use open source software only, that is your best bet. So running a Linux based OS, for example, is crucial, otherwise anything you do is in the hands of Windows and hacks that happen all the time on that OS.
Neither Whatsup nor Google Chrome is open source, so don't use that either. The Tor part I agree with as well of course.
Tails OS was always best for privacy, but it is harder to make it persistent, so other Linux distributions should be good as well.

Almost all OS for computer and smartphone are large, complicated programs. Who knows if Windows 10 harvests or doesn't harvest info in some way? Even Ubuntu has grown to gigantic size, and is constantly being upgraded almost on a daily basis. Mac OSX is gigantic, as well.

If you are really interested in safety, you need to use a little OS like Puppy Linux, and totally - Veracrypt - encrypt any info you want to send by Windows, Mac, or big Linus OSs. And you need to do this before placing the encrypted files onto the big OS.

The Ubuntu source code is available to everyone, right? So I don't think that they will be harvesting the user data. Also, Ubuntu doesn't have the corporate structure of ownership like Windows or Mac OS does. That is why I prefer Ubuntu to keep my data away from the prying eyes of the authorities, when compared to Mac OS and MS Windows.

I get the principle behind it and do encrypt sensitive things but the vast majority of what I do I don’t care if anyone sees it.

Even if you encrypt whom you are communicating with often is not hidden and it seems to be what the government is after.

With your cell phone its location is known all the time. I don't understand why this isn't thought of as a violation of privacy?

Pefectly agreed with you. Only when they'll see how bad it could be, they'll start to consider not just give their data to everyone for free.
Nobody tought them how to do it so they are doing like others: just ignoring the issue.

Protect your privacy as you protect your house: it is the same even if you don't see it.

Are you really sure about that?
What if I were an hacker and get your personal details: like where your finance lives, which are your Bank accounts, what time you leaves the house at morning, ...

These data I can easely find in your cellphone.
Don't think everyone is a good person.
I might suppose you protect your home from thieves - you'd better protect your personal data beforse someone could stole them.

Yes, I guess people should be responsible towards themselves and use only TOR and encrypted data communications.

Thanks buddy.
That's why this forum is all about. Make every people aware what it's really going on lately on the web site.
It's a freedom place from censuring and we can talk almost everything especially those topic the mass media has been trying to manipulate as usual . Because they are not so easy to understand at first sight many people believe what other are saying and not study themselves if it really true or not.

Privacy and security topics are always interesting and nowadays most of people doesn't really care about that. Almost every platform, from device, OS, networks are not safe. And about the tittle of this threads, I agree that our data needs to be encrypted as long as you are the only one who can decrypt it. If you can't, sorry to say, then just a bullshit. Many services offers protection, VPN, Tor, or something like that are not guarantees that you are absolutely safe. It's just minimalized the public exposures like trackers. Who can guarantee that those 'privacy services providers' are not collecting your data?

by the way, I like those movies you mentioned above.

Yeah, many people does not aware of their privacy. Most of people never reads term of services and privacy policy. Finally every single person take responsibility for their own privacy. Not to get safest, but to reduce to be tracked. For those who are not do something private, maybe they will be ok feel comfort to go public. Nothing to hide and let the any service provider grab their behavior and their habit during goes online. I'm not one of them.

Buddy I see you get the point. Of course It's the safest of all if you can control everything of what you are doing but at the end you have to trust something. I mean if you drive the car, you feel safe push the brake when you need it, but who garante that? The car's makers so you trust them.
However something can go wrong something and does not work as it was supposed to do.

In the same way you have to trust something in what you are believing. But to make everything works for a common folk something needs to be easy - so in the end how can you control everything if you don't make it by yourself ?


If a VPN is FREE do you think it's safe enough ?

That's the big problem mate. I also sometime because I'm in a hurry and I need that application, I flag the "agreement statement" without even look at it.
So there happens when you get screwed. But you HAVE to know that you can risk at least and that's what the 95% of the people doesn't know.

I mean why haven't you been asking why big G had made so many buck Huh?
They think "ok Gmail is free - great! " and never wonder why..

Almost all OS for computer and smartphone are large, complicated programs. Who knows if Windows 10 harvests or doesn't harvest info in some way? Even Ubuntu has grown to gigantic size, and is constantly being upgraded almost on a daily basis. Mac OSX is gigantic, as well.

The Ubuntu source code is available to everyone, right? So I don't think that they will be harvesting the user data. Also, Ubuntu doesn't have the corporate structure of ownership like Windows or Mac OS does. That is why I prefer Ubuntu to keep my data away from the prying eyes of the authorities, when compared to Mac OS and MS Windows.

There are some components of Ubuntu that are closed source, with most of it being drivers. It is also possible for governments to tamper with open source projects to leave subtle exploits wide open. The BIOS of your computer is likely to be closed-source as well, so there may be backdoor exploits in that too.
