Google is providing information to police based on what people are searching for, including data like IP addresses. What are your thoughts on this?
It’s time to get a VPN!
@kirkmahoneyphd Already got one I needed it because I signed up for Fox Nation (thanks to you) Watching the Ronald Reagan Assassination Doc
I use duckduckgo for a few years now. Works perfectly.
I have stopped selling my ebooks on Google Play Books because of this news. Google lost my trust. Google no longer deserves to earn ebook-sales revenue from my readers.
Not surprised by this one single bit. Disgusting to say the least…
It’s more than just a VPN that you’ll need.
VPN = Privacy of data being transmitted.
Tor = Anonymity of who is transmitting said data.
If using a VPN while logged into Google, you defeat the purpose of the VPN (which I’m sure you know).
Nevertheless, I believe you will benefit from and enjoy this resource: The Hitchhikers Guide to Online Anonymity.
Wow! This intently brought back the memory of a TV show episode: Drop Dead Diva, Episode 606 - Desperate Housewife
Synopsis taken from imbd:
“Grayson and Jane are pressed by the government to defend a housewife whose family is clueless why she’s held incommunicado on nationals security-related charges so secret even the judge isn’t given the full version. Having guessed it must be because of the Petersons’ unfortunate Internet search history…”
@urszula, given a focus of the Mudita Pure on freeing people from smartphone addiction and that you have a Fox Nation subscription, I recommend the 13-October-2021 episode of Tucker Carlson Today – “America Addicted”.
It’s an interview of Anna Lembke, M.D., a psychiatrist who wrote Dopamine Nation. She talks starting at approximately 45 minutes into the interview about the addictiveness of smartphones.
Quoting from [the sales page for Dopamine Nation](Dopamine Nation):
The smartphone is the modern-day hypodermic needle, delivering digital dopamine 24/7 for a wired generation. As such we’ve all become vulnerable to compulsive overconsumption.
If you have time, then I recommend that you watch the hour-long interview from the beginning.
@kirkmahoneyphd Thanks for the suggestion. I will definitely take a look at it.
