Dear bitcointalkers, does privacy matters for you? When I started to trade btc I was sure it will always remain anonymous, but nowadays more and more exchangers ask for some identification documents for some reason. I decided to check what happens with other spheres and found that article https://hackernoon.com/why-privacy-matters-and-how-to-stop-online-harassment-q174930dm

It's really important for me to be safe online due to the several reasons. As I make payments and run the business. I don't want anyone know all the information about me.

So let's share which apps do you use for browsing, messaging, emailing, etc. Maybe you can also offer good VPN (I don't really believe them, but anyway)

Let's help each other to save our personal information.

All centralized exchanges require you to complete KYC due to legal reason, to prevent money washing. It's ok if they only use our personal information for verifying and only provide our information to legal departments when they are required. But by some way, i many times see exchange user information are sell, it's such a big problem.

This is why we use listing companies like Bitquick (https://www.bitquick.co/) or LocalBitcoins (https://localbitcoins.com/)... so that the exchanging is done in private, yet is protected by escrow from the listing company.

Cool

Well, data security is important to me, but it's not that I'm really worried about it. Although, of course, in recent years there has been some huge number of hacker attacks on users. Especially, as I heard, TG users suffer. I don’t understand only one thing as users of the application, whose developers claim that it is completely anonymous, can I be attacked by hackers who also stole their personal information?

What applications can be used to be absolutely sure in your own safety?

Localbitcoins is a shit. Their politics now force all the users to upload the id documents. Even if you want to make a small deal for 20$ you have to upload the documents and prove it is you.

What concerns Telegram, it's been a long time I don't believe in it. So many data leaks and no one is gonna improve the  soft. If you give your phone number, be ready to be tracked.

A few days ago I read an interesting article about an application that does not require any data at all. It seems to be called utopia p2p, but I have not heard anything about it. Maybe you know more about this application and can tell

Luckily Binance offers the no kyc/verification accounts and it still has a nice amount for daily limit. As if you are a heavy trader that can fill 2 BTC per day.

So let's share which apps do you use for browsing, messaging, emailing, etc.
Answers will be the usual apps that offers these services.

People who say they don’t care about privacy because they have got nothing to hide have not thought too deeply about these issues. What they are really saying is I do not care about this right.

When you say I don’t care about the right to privacy because I have nothing to hide, that is no different than saying I don’t care about freedom of speech because I have nothing to say or freedom of the press because I have nothing to write.

Privacy matters so that they don't catch you when you are sneaking out of quarantine.

Just remember one thing. Technically the docs aren't you. They are only docs. Even if a doc has your sig on it, you are signing it as controller of the doc. Most of the time the docs don't state that you have any obligation from signing. The obligation comes when you agree that you have an obligation of some sort.

Ask the question to yourself, Is your privacy matters more than money making then stop using centralized exchanges.You can liquidate your funds on Dex but probably you get hit on the price due to less volume.

Now, this is what we should ask our selves before using exchanges.

You are right but you do not question yourself in all exchanges The type of exchange varies from place to place. But I think a decentralized exchange site is the best They protect privacy.

These decentralized exchange sites can do whatever we would like in order that they are under the protection of our privacy and that we are worth nothing as we work but the centralized exchange sites are under another. they are doing not have our personal information.

As I've checked it unites all-in-one. I'm interested in mining there as it seems to be nice. But I didn't found any info on the market about its inner coin called Crypton. So I'm not sure if it's worse to start mining. But what's good, I didn't find any negative info on it. So maybe it's exactly what I'm looking for in the means of privacy.

There are many sites that keep their information anonymous, which I don't think has any negative impact on them. Sites that are good protect their privacy. Bad sites usually try to propagate frequently for scams and show greed for various tactics.

Hmm, this is very interesting. I googled several articles about this application and it seems to have very good reviews. More precisely, there are no comments at all about the presence of bugs and problems with data security. Is there anyone who is already testing this app?

My friend's icloud was hacked. There were pictures of him and his girlfriend... not the nicest.
The hacker started blackmailing him.
As it became known, the icloud was hacked by people who were fixing his iPhone.
It's not exactly about anonymity. It's about common sense. You're always visible on the Internet, remember
