What do you think? Is “Session Sync” a good ad…

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/session-sync/I have my Firefox modified for privacy and security, so the history gets deleted everytime it closes. This also includes open tabs. So wanted to save them somehow and found this addon.It has a github page here: https://github.com/ReDEnergy/SessionSync​It sounds ok so far. But I don’t understand the source code so I can’t say for sure. What do you think about it?

A new Disturbed song about tech purposely addi…

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TTCjPQ6UKlUMaybe a lot of people stopped caring about privacy anymore because their lives are becoming those services. The average person spends most of their waking hours staring at a screen, and thinks it was always this way. Like how tobacco companies added ammonia to cigarettes, services are using psychologists to make them more habit forming. So far we got a global surveillance state, rising extreme wealth inequality creating a “gig” economy, and our data is being used for propaganda to damage democracy. Yet is anyone gonna do anything IRL to stop it, or will they share a stray article on the same services and think their work is done.

I’m trying to explain friends and family why it’s important to care about your privacy.But, they’re all saying the usual, “I have nothing to hide”.​I would love to start a website, that explains why its important and then shows you examples, of what could happen.For example, identity-theft, discrimination, manipulation.I think if people would see clear examples, like all day scenarios, they could relate and understand.​My goal with this is, to increase the use of encrypted voice & messenger apps, etc. and to make it harder for governments to spy on us.​​I would do the design and code of the page, I hope we can come up with some scenarios.

I’ve browsed mylife profiles before and found people’s car information listed, leading me to believe there’s some part of the purchase process where personal information is shared.I am aware it is required to put everything under your name unless you establish some sort of entity, but what part of the purchase process could lead to exposed data and how can I prevent this? Is it insurance? The car company? Last thing I need is my car listed on a site like mylife.Thanks in advance!
