How do I get archive.is to delete screenshots …

You can get the owners of the archive machine to pull screenshots down by a simple request followed by a verification, but contacting archive.is owners doesn’t seem to be as simple. I try to reach out via email and via PM but so far, no answer. Is there anything I can do?

Is there anyway to see what tracking xompanies…

Like I read an article that someone met with someone to see what they knew about them, and it happened to be super wrong, but I was wondering if it was easy or readily available to do for regular people.

New privacy-oriented contact and personal rela…

Hey lovely people!​I am working on a new privacy-oriented application called Contact Cache. It is a combination of a contact manager and note taking app – something like a personal CRM. The difference from all the other apps on the market today is that Contact Cache will use client-side encryption, so all personal data on the server is going to be encrypted.​The product is not ready yet (I am sort of halfway through to some first public version), but I have created a temporary landing page http://contactcache.com where I put some more information.​Check it out and let me know your ideas and opinions!​If you like the idea, please sign up for the news as this will motivate me to speed up the development! :)​Petrhttp://contactcache.com

Better for US citizens to use domestic or fore…

I had commented earlier that I thought it was better as a US citizen to use foreign services, but did not seem to get concenseous on that assertion, most arguing the counterpoint. Their logic being that US->EU communication is survailable in the US without warrant due to five-eyes, and similar programs.My logic:VPN and SSL traffic will be encrypted meaning that tapping the feed yields no information.US ISPs are routinely given US-Court requests to identify a billing account associated with a particular IP address at a particular timestamp, and these requests are largely heeded by US ISPs.US-Court requests to correlate IP-address to billing account carry much less weight in foreign countries, and are largely ignored by privacy minded foreign ISPs.I guess my thought process is, that it would be much more likely to lose privacy due to [2] than through [1] or [3]. Is this nieve. Is encryption in this day and age that worthless? Do US-Court requests carry that much weight overseas?

Can we change how news articles are handled on…

This is the privacy subreddit, we all know that Google, Amazon, Facebook etc all track us across the web and even offline, but one thing that irks me is that we link to news articles from various websites, all of which use trackers and may even require JavaScript to run. Reading any news publication linked from this sub may expose us, as maybe some of us haven’t updated our adblock filters (this has happened to me, ads have snuck through uBlock Origin before, purging the cache and updating usually fixes it), or maybe we’re on our phones where attaining privacy is more difficult or maybe we simply don’t want to have our internet traffic go to a certain website for whatever reason.My solution to this is the usage of an webpage archive such as the well known Wayback Machine or even a service like Archive.is. This will allow users of this sub to read news articles without exposing themselves to things like ads, JavaScript, Google Analytics etc and will allow these news articles to be accessed in the future if need be in the case that the source is deleted.
