Where do you go for online privacy? Login/Join

Let me begin by saying that I'm a boring guy. Not much to me that would be a threat.

But I do value anonymity, and I think we can agree that seeking online privacy doesn't make us criminals in and of itself.
Yet more and more often when I want to post, text, or even talk on the phone, I pause to consider the shitty big brother(s) we all have. How many times do we have to hear about someone getting cancelled before being paranoid becomes good judgement?

I've never used facefuck or twatigram, but I haven't signed up for anything like Parlor either because it just seems like a great way to sort out all the folks our enemies would love to keep an eye on. I mean, that's how I'd do it if I were them.

Now I'm wondering if using TOR might be all it's cracked up to be, or if that is asking to be under even bigger microscopes?

Should I just keep it all inside my skull? Seems kinda lonely Doc.

There's no such thing as online privacy.

There is no online privacy. My ISP hijacks my DNS to use theirs regardless of what I try to choose. They also add javascript to every page I visit.

Like Facebook and others, you are the product as well as the consumer.

If you didn't want people talking about it, you wouldn't be doing it.

It's just that simple

I once used an Army O-5’s desktop in his JAG office to look up a news story we were discussing in a telecon.

I discovered the Chicago paper is the Tribune by entering a different name that took me straight to a XXX rated website.

It set off some software that locked it until IT could get there.

Boy was he embarrassed. I thought it hilarious. Even the IT guy thought it was funny.

Some people use TAILS, a Linux distribution. It routes through the TOR network.

Is that some sort of pop/geek culture reference I'm supposed to get?

It's IPV4-speak for the address of your home network.

So, yes, sigmonkey made a joke, essentially implying that 'privacy' is pretty scarce, once you connect, but that you're probably safe on your own network ... actually a not a bad joke, for just four numbers and three dots... Smile
