"*Fed up?* Join the Fediverse."
Fed up with Facebook and Twitter dictating what you can and can't say online? Then join the Fediverse, the decentralised social media system that they've been hiding from you for years.
The word Fediverse is a portmanteau of…"
See the new logo design we published for Fediverse yesterday morning.
Add Cloudglare to your list if you like, they seem to be training drones with #hCaptcha.
@dsfgs Flyers are a great idea. I've been meaning to create flyers and/or stickers for a long time.
Where can I find that logo and do you have a link to Cloudglare?
@PaulaToThePeople #Google tracks everything. Even without an acct, Google sees your IP address in all activity that touches a Google asset. So the fake accounts get associated together and also associated with logged out activity. If you start using Google Play app then switch to #Yalp, Google already has your IMEI# from the 1st use, and that number is part of the dataset.
@PaulaToThePeople I had a few fake accts and noticed google linked them together. It was something like google sending an email that greeted me by the fake name of another acct, so it's clear that Google is making an effort to link different burner accts together. So I no longer use any google acct, and if I touch a google asset w/out acct I still use Tor & try to counter fingerprinting
But we can make google aggregate accounts from different people. I could make my pssword public or share it with others. Or - if you think thid would be too dangerous - do this with cookies. Them the algorithm thinks we are using the same browser and assumes we are one person. And finally every account we log in from our brouwsers look belonging to a single person. The cookiesharing could be done by a p2p service automatically.
@wend @PaulaToThePeople it's a sound theory, but where are the tools? I suspect if you automate the sharing of cookies or creds, Google will eventually discover it and kill it. Would be easy to kill. Google would just sign up for the exchange program to see which accts are on rotation and suspend those accts.
@wend @PaulaToThePeople i don't think there is a Google acct sharing tool or service of any kind, desktop or phone. Once it does, indeed phone h/w is another hurdle. I've use #Raccoon back in the day when I was willing to download from Playstore. It's very non-trivial because the simulated phone must resemble the real phone enough to download a compatible version.
@resist1984 @PaulaToThePeople Just disabling Google services and apps isn't enough. That's only a temporary solution and AFAIK the manufacteurer cannot be really stopped from watching without actually replacing the OS. Also, I've seen disabled Google services re-enabling themselves (or being re-enabled by some third party?) after some time including re-granting themselves several permissions (that was on an Asus device).
Where do you have that script? Does it need ADB root access?
@datenschutzratgeber @PaulaToThePeople sorry, it's not a script. It's been a while since I bought a phone to harden. I have notes to myself on the manual process that I follow. I've just dumped them here: http://paste.debian.net/1180672/ but note that wasn't intended for other ppl to consume, just to jog my memory. So some steps are not detailed (they get me to a screen where I know what to do). Root is not needed.
It is still possible on a phone with stock-android to skip making an account at first start and use aurora/yalp instead. Maybe that's a solution to your problem?
With play-services I guess they still track a lot.
But: In my opinion every step counts and some is better than nothing. And even if you don't want to change os you can deactivate all google stuff I guess, all relevant stuff works for me without google services, so it should work on stock-android too.
Sorry for bad english. So it sounds sometimes rude.
