Juggalos figured out how to beat facial recognition

Welcome to a world where Juggalo makeup is your best shot at avoiding involuntary surveillance.
https://theoutline.com/post/5172/juggalo-juggalette-facepaint-makeup-hack-beat-facial-recognition-technology

My immediate question was of course how to Black Metal corpsepaint fare against the surveillance tools? But they answered that too:
Face-painting styles like “corpse” makeup also obscure the face. However, they don’t create enough contrast to effectively confuse most facial recognition systems

A quite well-done talk on privacy and mass-profiling of people:


There's one especially interesting point (apart from may other valuable ideas in the talk):
It's not just about our personal dramas - whether we will get decent credit rate, a visa to US, or our dream job. It's more and more about shaping the society we live in.
Profiling ignores any exceptionality. It dwells and feeds itself on stereotypes, and therefore it makes these stereotypes stronger and more persistent. <...> If a young female is exploring Internet, she's much more likely to get an advertisement for a lipstick than a science magazine.

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.

# Phill from GCHQ - page 46 #


Drawing - 966 × 1350 px - 411 kb PNG - Page 46 of Phill from GCHQ. A bit of a celebration: The last page in what is to become a real album. @gargamello you can read a whole album now (it is continued though). The whole thing has developed into a nerdy version of Peter Paper - hadn't given that a thought until now.
Made with Krita



The comic can be read also in French, German and Danish.

Les fiches pratiques du CECIL pour réduire les risques liés à la surveillance

Les multiples révélations d’Edward Snowden concernant les dérives des programmes de surveillance de la NSA ont bien montré que les États-Unis et leurs alliés (mais ce ne sont malheureusement pas les seuls) écoutent et traitent massivement les informations de gouvernements étrangers, d’entreprises et de citoyens (majoritairement non américains) souvent par l’intermédiaire de compagnies telles que Microsoft, Yahoo, Google, Facebook, AOL, Apple… En plus de cette surveillance étatique, un utilisateur peut aussi être la cible d’entreprises commerciales et de pirates informatiques mal intentionnés. Conformément à son objet social de protection des individus face aux risques de l’informatique, le CECIL vous propose un recueil de fiches pratiques pour découvrir, pas à pas, des outils visant à mieux maitriser les informations exposées, protéger la vie privée et les libertés fondamentales. Il ne s’agit pas ici d’être exhaustif, mais de faire (re)découvrir au citoyen inquiet, quoique peu connaisseur, une sélection de techniques de base. À la fin de chaque fiche, des références complémentaires sont indiquées. Ces fiches proposent l’utilisation de logiciels respectueux de la vie privée, en complément de bonnes pratiques...

The Fight Over Email Privacy Moves to the Senate

The House passed the Email Privacy Act (H.R. 387) yesterday, bringing us one step closer to requiring a warrant before law enforcement can access private communications and documents stored online with companies such as Google, Facebook, and Dropbox. But the fight is just beginning. We’ve long called for pro-privacy reforms to the 1986 Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA), the outdated law that provides little protection for “cloud” content stored by third-party service providers. H.R. 387 would codify the Sixth Circuit’s ruling in U.S. v.

Marre du #fichage à la caisse du magasin électroménager ou autre ?
Tu te trompes ! C'est très drôle ! Il suffit juste de jouer un peu.
Si tu as lu #1984 de George #orwell tu connais #BigBrother mais aussi Winston Smith l'anti-héros ultra surveillé du roman .
Quand ton nom te sera demandé répond Winston Smith ou Julia Smith si cela correspond mieux avec ton identité visible ( le personnage de Julia n'a pas de patronyme, mais l'idée est la même, de plus Smith est peut être le nom le plus courant aux états unis et en Angleterre ).
Pour l'adresse chacun son inspiration mais Winston Smith habite "maison de la victoire" .
Adresse mail pourquoi pas angsoc@gmail.com l'adresse n'existant pas ( angsoc nom du parti état dirigé par big brother ).
Conseil : payer en liquide, aucune trace .

Fear Materialized: Border Agents Demand Social Media Data from Americans

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) recently filed complaints against U.S Customs and Border Protection (CBP) for, in part, demanding social media information from Muslim American citizens returning home from traveling abroad. According to CAIR, CBP accessed public posts by demanding social media handles, and potentially accessed private posts by demanding cell phone passcodes and perusing social media apps. And border agents allegedly physically abused one man who refused to hand over his unlocked phone. CBP recently began asking foreign visitors to the U.S.
