Help me find a video about privacy and data gr…

Several months ago, I watched a video about how advertisers target you and build this profile about your likes and dislikes. It showed the connections between your friends, the websites you visit and all the data points that they keep and build up on you. The video was narrated by a women. The video looked like a giant flow-chart that moved and zoomed in on the nodes and changed as your habits changed. It wasn’t terribly long, maybe 5 minutes or so? I feel like the women who was narrating it was a former Facebook engineer. Though I could be mistaken. It was not a video on “how-to” to do anything. It was more of a “here is how this data is collected and how they target you for ads” Orwellian video. Anyone have an idea of what I might be referencing?

Hello,

I think there is a bug in iOS 11.4.1: when you enable limited ad tracking (in settings, privacy, ads below), the option is always disabled afterwards. Try it, you’ll see.

Also, updating your phone to iOS 11.4.1 disables this option if you had it enabled before.

Apple is already not in compliance with the GPDR because normally advertising targeting should be done in opt-in and not in opt-out, and now the opt-out does not work…

Hello,

I’m currently considering moving all my private projects I have to keybases git version. However, I tried finding how they make their money and haven’t found that much. I found that they are sponsored but how do they plan on staying alive long-term?

Because it sounds awesome on paper with encrypted git for my projects but I’m still a curios.

Has anyone here used Keybase git? And if you have what is your experience? A lot of corrupt files etc?

Thanks in advance, Tobias
