    When the majority of the world are on Samsung, “i” anything, Windows and pour out all their information via social media and apps they all agree to, it’s not exactly hidden, and they gave permission. Big Data = Big Money. I find it funny really, wasn’t that long ago that every website/game/app/program etc used to say “Never give out your personal information to anyone online”, facebook, twitter, instagram etc all come out and everyones like “Meh, fuck it, here have all my information”. I proved it to my friends mum that I could get access to some form of her accounts just by the information she had on her facebook page, Mothers maiden name/ High School / Pets, etc.

    Now i’m curious: this article is directed to americans, but what about foreign countries where those apps are downloaded? We get the same result as for tiktok, just “anonymized” right?

    Edward Snowden recently warned that smartphones come with a non removable battery intentionally. Even though you powwr it off, its still sending and receiving information.

    Your data is out there ready to be stolen by anything that has a link to your IP address. Using a VPN and don’t post a lot of personal data when possible. The government will be tracking you no matter if they want but you don’t have to make their jobs easy.

    Solutions include living off the grid.

    All apps have privacy statements, if you don’t read them then you shouldn’t be surprised if you wake up one day and everything you own and all your base are belong to us!

    Genuine question: why should I care? Should I be afraid of something?
