Hello everyone! I’m looking into some different Linux distributions and I ran across an article from Forbes about a long time Windows user who switched to Deepin as his daily OS. I’ve done a little bit of research and the user interface is fantastic. As I am not familiar with this distro, my question is, do any of you have sentiments towards Deepin?​Deepin: https://www.deepin.org/

A Data Protection Car Crash – What Can Busines…

The San Francisco-based ride-hailing company admitted that over 2.7 million UK users are amongst those whose personal details were compromised in a hack which took place over a year ago.  The only thing any of us can do is learn some universal lessons from this spectacular example of exactly how NOT to handle a major data protection breach.Store data, and the keys to access it, securelyIt appears that the breach occurred because log-in information was stored on Github – a developer platform designed for collaboration, not a repository for confidential information. It looks like the passwords were stolen from there and used to breach Uber’s directories on AWS. This is a salutary reminder that no system is stronger than its weakest link, in many cases a human who is insufficiently aware of cybersecurity and their responsibilities under privacy law.  These were developers, who might have been expected to know better.A back-office hack like this is no defence against current data protection law, never mind GDPR, and this is a timely reminder to review and update you password management services. What is your organisation’s policy on password complexity, renewal, and storage? Is everyone aware, and complying effectively? Because privacy and compliance is everybody’s responsibility

The problem is, that I have a lot of passwords saved in MacOS KeyChain so it would be a painful job to copy all of them manually to Bitwarden. Do you know if there is any easy way to export passwords from MacOS KeyChain to Bitwarden? Thank you very much and have a nice day

I’m willing to root it, but I’d like to keep the default Android OS for the optimized camera app because I care about the camera. I’m wondering if it’s possible to use root to get rid of the Google apps running in the background that I don’t need, or replace the default Google Play Services with microG. Is this possible to do this while keeping the default Android OS?Any suggestions?
