Spokeo

Do these sites use a specific database to pull all information? Would I have to manually unlisted myself from all these sites? Where should I start?

Equifax hack

I thought they were going to make an app where you could freeze your credit for free. I feel like I’ve been running around circles on the net trying to get current info. Can someone provide a link on how to go about freezing and any news on the resolution to the hack?

Privacy activism

Whenever I talk to the people around me, it makes me very sad to see how little they care about privacy and civil liberty, about government surveillance, how much of their lives they put on Facebook, the ease with which they place Alexa’s everywhere in their house. “Oh but it’s so convenient”. I have learned that going into discussion with them is usually a dead end. I can use all the arguments I want, I’ve read most of the stuff in the sidebar here. In the end it’s very simple. They just really, really don’t care. Convenience trumps personal freedom. That said, I really would like to get involved in trying to make people more privacy-conscious, to help them understand the dangers. If people don’t change, we are in for a very, very scary future. Does anyone have any ideas? Are there any activist organizations or something like that to become a member of? Thanks a lot!

Apple or Android?

with the recent controversy, which is the lesser of two evils? I know that Android phones can change their operating system and kernel and stuff but i don’t want to void my warranty or sacrifice security. seems like it really is a trade-off between privacy and convenience, and I’m trying to lean more to privacy. I currently have android with all the tracking settings turned off but i still feel like I could do better. thanks.

Ipod GPS?

Hey guys I can’t seem to find a definitive answer on this, but seems there is a lot of anecdotal evidence that there is indeed GPS on iPod touch.

I ask because I was planning on switching to an iTouch and just use Sudo to make calls/texts at home. I figure if I wanted to talk on the go I could just buy a used iPhone SE with cash and restore my Sudo numbers on that (or would that link the phones together? Not sure if Sudo keeps records of what devices use an account like Wickr etc), and then before I go home turn it off and throw it in a Faraday bag.

Anyway, I did do some searching and it doesn’t look too hopeful that it would make much difference than just using a regular phone that is tracked, but I thought I’d very everyone’s opinion here before doing anything.

Thanks guys!
