I work in mobile app development and the technology out there to spy on you is pretty insane. There is a whole industry for snooping and reselling data. Here are some examples.

There are several SDKs (software development kits) that offer fingerprinting identity services. Meaning, when someone opens your app, it checks their device ID, IP address, GPS location, email address, etc. and makes a match to an identity. You then use this SDK to track their behavior in your app, such as purchases, interests, demographics, preferences, etc. This data is stored along with all the other apps that use the SDK. Now as an upsell, I can buy all of your behavior data from every other app that uses the same service. From the moment you install the app I know everything about you.

There are SDKs that don’t even offer a service, they just straight up pay the app maker to let their agent sit and collect data and send it up to their servers. Mostly location data.

My favorite is there’s an SDK that actually records the screen while you use the app, and the video gets sent up to the server for the app maker to see how you use their app in real time. It also tracks all of your views, swipes, and button presses tied to the video for analytics.

Basically, you should assume that every moment you are using an internet connected device, you are being observed, scrutinized, and analyzed so that someone can sell you more shit.

They are really good at this, and getting better every year. You think Facebook is listening to your microphone to serve you ads at the moment you are discussing a product? They don’t need to. They know you that well.

Edit: A lot of people are asking for specific examples of this monitoring tech. There are a ton of small players. So an example of location tracking is Tamoco. An example of behavior tracking is Branch.io (they don't advertise the data mining, but it's a back-end deal). And session monitoring is AppSee or HotJar. There are many more that I haven't heard of.

There are a ton of data resellers out there. They're typically small startups who buy and sell data, and they compete on having the most comprehensive and clean data sets. We get approached by a data reseller maybe once a month, either trying to buy our data or sell us data.

Edit: A lot of people are flippant about this idea because you "don't click on ads" or you "don't buy anything". There are people who aren't interested in just selling you products. How about voting for a particular political candidate, or for/against a ballot measure? How about selling you a particular world view? Propaganda is just like advertising, they're just selling you an idea instead of a product.

When is diaspora going to become free of ecmascript, by default for mobile phones (and the rest of the gnu/linux world)?

- #Spyware on #phone #fears as #Dutton #pushes new #security #laws


A push to compel Australia's telecommunications companies to install spyware on customers' phones under broad new security plans could be "severely damaging" to the country's cybersecurity, the industry has warned.

- #Google #requiring #phone #number to log into #Chromebook
Long story short: bought a couple of Chromebooks over the years (as they're nice multi user machines), created Google accounts on each but never gave a phone number. Now after years of use, Google pops up an "unrecognized device" roadblock AFTER I enter the password to log in, with the message "enter a phone number to get a text message with a verification code".

Doctors say: Children struggle to hold pencils due to too much tablet and smartphone usage


Strange generation... Using tablets and phones all the time, but having difficulties using a pen or pencil. Actually no wonder considering adult's phone addiction ( https://diasp.org/posts/8850004 ). Maybe pens and pencils are old fashioned anyway. Children might have to learn only touch screen usage in the future.

Purism collects half the money for Librem 5!



Purism does better than I hoped! After a little bit more than half of the time (33 days passed, 27 still to go), they have half the money (51%) of the 1.5 million USD they need. I'm positively surprised!

Now the other half it is up to you! If you like to have a phone that respects your privacy (so does promise Purism), runs a mainstream Linux distro (PureOS/Debian by default, the most important point for me personally), and has strong focus on freedom and security, please consider supporting their crowd funding campaign!

As long as they do not reach their goal there is no risk. Your credit card will not be charged before they reach their target. If the reach the 1.5 million USD, they will charge you. Then there is the risk, that they will fail, of course. I think, that they will not fail, because they have some experience with building hardware and they have capable people on board. But, hey, no risk, no fun!

Student Lets #Thief Steal His #Phone, Spies On Him For Weeks To Make This #Documentary



Film student Anthony van der Meer had his #iPhone stolen and the thought that a stranger had access to all of his #personal #data really concerned him. What kind of person would steal a phone? Where do these phones end up? These were his biggest questions. To get answers, Anthony had another phone stolen from him on purpose, but this time he followed the thief using a hidden app and made a captivating documentary film about the whole process. http://www.boredpanda.com/find-my-phone-thief-stolen-smartphone-spying-cerberus-anthony-van-der-meer/ #surveillance #tracking #gps #mobile #mobileshttp://www.boredpanda.com/find-my-phone-thief-stolen-smartphone-spying-cerberus-anthony-van-der-meer/

I'm trying to reduce my cell phone usage gradatively every day. Call it a data diet if you may; I envy in a good way those who manage to live a 21st century life without a phone, perhaps I'll reach that level one day. I'm planning to take these extra steps these coming weeks to force myself to reduce phone usage when moving around the city:
  • If I'm going anywhere closer than a car ride away from home or office, I won't take my phone with me.
  • If I'm going to be away from home or office for less than 3 hours, I won't take my phone with me.
  • If the place I'm going has a reliable Wi-Fi hotspot, I won't take my phone with me, regarless of time or distance (I'll take my laptop instead).
Notes: I mention "office" because, like my house, it's one of the places where I'm well-known to hang around often. It's no secret to anyone, so there's little gain in obfuscating it. Also, no. 3 is especially useful during a trip far away since there my phone becomes less useful than a laptop because it cannot make calls anymore.

I don't know if it'll make much of a difference in the long run, but right now, any measure that helps make me used to using my phone less times a day is welcome. Who knows, perhaps next step is to cancel my carrier subscription.

WHAT KIND OF #BULLSHIT IS THIS?????



a guy claims to have made an "app" that charges your phone without a charger or battery pack... and apparently all of this is done purely in software

apparently the app his company developed magically stores extra charge in your phone when you charge your phone and then uses that extra charge stored in your phone to charge your phone.... wtf?

he claims that this app can charge your phone up to 40% when it's first installed, and then that figure slowly increases over time

and this is being launched in Jan

i smell serious bullshit with this >:(

I'm not kidding about anything. i saw it in the local news report at around 6. Here is the link, it starts at around 10 minutes: https://youtu.be/_jHAYrMMPEo?t=10m7s
