This is my (paulakreuzer) personal list of tools to avoid Surveillance Capitalism.

I will try to keep it up to date, add more stuff and fix mistakes that are pointed out to me. Please also give me tips for other tools I could use, but don't be mad if I don't have the time to look into and add all of them.

The police told the suspect, Jorge Molina, they had data tracking his phone to the site where a man was shot nine months earlier. They had made the discovery after obtaining a search warrant that required #Google to provide information on all devices it recorded near the killing, potentially capturing the whereabouts of anyone in the area.

Algunas empresas usan gmail como correo. Compran unas cuantas licencias de google gmail y le calzan su dominio a esos correos. Pero en el fondo lo que se usa es gmail y eso supone que servicios asociados como hangouts se pueden usar. Mi punto de vista respecto a esto es que es un error. Pero ...Immagine/foto

Google exec finally admits to congress that they're tracking us even with 'Location' Turned Off …and the phone "not in use"


#Google admet finalement traquer les utilisateurs, même lorsqu'ils désactivent la géolocalisation.

extracts / excerpts
Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) questioned Google Senior #Privacy Counsel Will DeVries about the company's tracking policies during a hearing examining online consumer privacy. Some of DeVries' answers will likely disturb consumers who thought there was a way to avoid being tracked by Google through their #phones.

An Associated Press report in August 2018 found that "many Google services on #Android devices and #iPhones store your location #data even if you’ve used a privacy setting that says it will prevent Google from doing so."

Hawley pointed out on Tuesday that a user's location is sent to Google hundreds of times a day, even when the phone is not in use. In fact, Hawley said, a user's location is tracked "every four minutes, or 14 times an hour, roughly 340 times during a 24-hour period," even when the phone is not in use.

"But Google collects #geolocation data even if Location History is turned off, correct?" Hawley pressed.

"Yes, senator, it can in order to operate other services—"

"So the consumer cannot meaningfully opt out," Hawley shot back, reiterating the fact that the phone is still communicating and sending information to Google even when the phone is not in use and Location Services are turned off. "And you're #monetizing it and using it to direct #ads at him, correct?"

"It's not complicated," Hawley insisted. "What's complicated is that you don't allow consumers to stop your tracking of them. You tell them that you do. You would anticipate that they do — that the consumer would have a reasonable expectation based on what you've told them, that they're not being tracked — but in fact, you're still tracking them. You're still gathering the #information and you're still using it."

Fun fact: Some people are convinced that they can use the internet without using something from Google.

That's very likely wrong since many everyday technologies originate from Google (partially at least), including Certificate Transparency, Content Security Policy, Feature Policy, Expect-CT, HTTP/2, JSON, HSTS, MTA-STS, SMTP TLS Reporting, ALPN, FIDO U2F, HTTP/3, Subresource Integrity, and libraries used by many apps.
