What are you doing for/with your phone ?

The aim is to be as private as possible but not miss on a minimum standard of convinience.

Are you using iOS/Android… jailbreak/root , custom roms, f-droid…?

this is not supposed to be a support thread but more an attempt to get an overview of what you guys and girls are using on a daily basis

Trying to bypass government surveillance

My cousin is trying to send me footage of protests going in his country, unfortunately he cannot send me the videos. At this moment he can’t download anything either. Is there anything I can do to get the footage? If it helps I am in the US. Also if there are other places I should look for this information I would love the input.

Secirity of encrypting individual files?

If your PC is on half the day, then your FDE is doing jack shit for half the day. So I’m thinking individual file encryption could be an additional feature to use for files and even virtual machines in the case of a remote, undetected intrusion.

Is this indivudal file encryption security theater though? What are the *specific* pitfalls and possible solutions?

This is a particularly useful discussion for those self-hosting 24/7 backup/sync servers and that might not trust whatever encryption is built in, or just want a better grasp on this topic.

Thanks.

ProtonMail or Tutanota for custom domain

I don’t use the actual domain/email the service provide, only my custom domain. So what’s the best email provider? Why everyone is choosing PM over Tutanota. Some people says that choose PM cause Tutanota belongs to a 14 eyes country, but since the data in encrypted, who cares? The only downside I see about Tutanota is using the AES-128 and being a small company which can easily stop working comparing to PM

GDPR: Can we choose not to have cookies?

The GDPR requires sites that target users in the EU must notify their users about the cookies they use, usually with a notification like “By using this website, you accept cookies” with an “agree”.

If we exit the notification rather than clicking “Agree” does that mean the site will not use cookies?

How long can DHS keep my biometrics for?

3 years ago I visited New York, when I got there immigration scanned my fingerprints and I think a copy of my passport was recorded as well. How long does this data stay on record for? I am an E.U. citizen, since I found out about the GDPR I have become more privacy conscience. I have deleted my facebook, instagram, snapchat, paypal, outlook, gmail (yes I had a lot) I avoid as much contact with google as I can and only use Protonmail instead.

Alternatively to google.com and chrome I use DDG and brave browser with my VPN always on and now I want to delete myself from the DHS system.

I want to know that my data is safe from the government and others including keeping my identity private. Is there a period on how long they can keep this information for?
