Google Contacts can deduplicate, group (label), merge, multiple select … which are not available in CardDAV (davdroid with disroot, zoho, fruux) & even web (disroot, zoho, fuux).

What consumer reporting agencies exist beyond …

Here is a list of known consumer reporting agencies. To keep focus, I am not outlining what each of these services do but for those unfamiliar, you are highly encouraged to research each.

I am noticing when attempting to open accounts with services such as privacy.com and digital currency exchanges, it seems they are using risk management information that is provided by an unknown service. It almost seems like there is an underground network of shared information that blacklists users. I could honestly see services like Facebook and eBay using blacklist databases.

Data reporting services within United States jurisdiction can only operate under the federal definition of a consumer reporting agency which then binds them to regulations including the FCRA. That’s not to say illegal data collection and reporting isn’t happening however.

I am pretty familiar with the major consumer reporting agencies that exist but clearly there has to be some missing from this list. I would like to understand where the information these services are receiving is originating because they would then be required to disclose that information in compliance with the FCRA.

Help with a college class that is forcing me t…

Hi you guys, not the usual /r/privacy post here, but I’m in a situation right now that really need help with. I’m required to take a class in college, and this class has participating on Facebook (posting and commenting) involved.

I think that it is a violation of my privacy, and considering I have already had my account disabled twice for dumb reasons, I really don’t want to have to make another account just to get my private info sold again.

I’m planning to send an email to the professor, but I’m not sure how I can convince her. I feel like she won’t be sympathetic to my concerns with privacy. Any suggestions?
