Firefox browser for Linux and windows offers better privacy.

Google designed it means it benefits the company.

Privacy brave browser is a privacy-oriented browser that has many of the privacy issues mentioned here

http://ebin.city/%7Ewerwolf/posts/brave-is-shit/

Here are some issues:

They are whitelisting trackers for Twitter and Facebook”

It is impossible to install adblockers in any Chromium-based browser

They “fetch affiliates for Brave Reward, with pings like Grammarly, Softonic and Uphold.”

Brave’s rewards will continue to be used even if you have explicitly opted out.

They also send requests to domains believed to have a connection to Rewards’ crypto-related aspect. There is no way to opt out of sending these requests.”

“Brave includes telemetry.

Brave receives a lot of requests from Brave every day. This cannot be disabled.”

It’s concerning that a privacy-oriented browser can connect to Cloudflare and Google domains since they both use telemetry.

Brave checks for new updates each time it is run. It can’t be turned off.

“Who is this fuck who implements Tor, but does not change DNS?”

Brave were accused of swindling people

Brave should not be trusted at all. It would be smart to switch to the Tor browser, GNU Icecat or Palemoon, which is hardened Firefox.

Flagged by fsfat as an anti-features browser, the brave browser has been flagged

This is a listing of essential privacy-enhancing Firefox add-ons.

You should be concerned about advanced threats and use hardened browsers like Tails, Tor Brower Bundle.


The tor browser does not guarantee your safety. Security researchers have dissected Firefox’s code, and discovered that it used a vulnerability in Firefox to identify Tor Browser Bundle users. This report was sent to an unknown server in Northern Virginia.

You can edit the hosts file on Windows or Linux to prevent bad sites from being accessed. The list is available here.

Een Linux computer die niets doet heeft dus ook geen network internet verkeer.

Een windows computer die niets doet heeft voortdurend internet verkeer met ?? What is the best way to get a???

de banken zeggen niet dat digitaal betalen een extra risico heeft waarbij veel geld verloren kan gaan.

het risico is voor de klant en er is geen verzekering zoals bij sommige credit cards

een betaal app op android zal zeker ook informatie lekken naar de google servers

een albert hein supermarkt app wil zelfs toegang tot de microfoon zodat meneer albert mee kan luisteren !? en wat doet die app nog meer?

De supermarkten hebben wel privacy statements voor de website maar niet voor de winkel

over wat ze doen met wifi, camera’s, betaal systemen, voordeel en spaar kaarten etc etc.

volgens de wet zijn ze verplicht een privacystatement ook hierover op de website te hebben.

internet bankieren op de laptop veiligheid hangt af van het systeem zoals apple, windows, Linux

en de kans is groot dat het veiliger is dan op een smartphone met allemaal apps die vreemde dingen doen

een computer virus op windows kan wel degelijk problemen veroorzaken of geld stelen bij internet bankieren.

in zo’n geval kan de bank niets voor je doen.

Een anonieme ov chipkaart kan met veel moeite en extra kosten anoniem gebruikt worden

maar geld terug vragen kan niet anoniem wat natuurlijk tegenstrijdig is met het woord anoniem

de camera’s op de snelweg werken met nummerbord herkenning en kunnen real-time een

auto traceren wat ook gedaan wordt voor dit doel.

in china heeft de regering erg veel camera’s op straat die in 1 seconde iemand kunnen herkennen

en omdat dit technisch mogelijk is kan dit ook gebeuren in nederland vandaag of morgen

Volgens een nieuws artikel is het al heel gewoon in usa dat camera’s in de supermarkt

face recognition doen zonder dt mensen enig idee hebben

een supermarkt zegt op de website dat ze vanwege mileu extra veel klantgegevens registreren

om zo het verlies aan beperkt houdbare produkten to verminderen.

ze bedoelen dat ze zo meer winst maken en meer gegevens hebben en dit heeft niets met mileu te maken.

Ook privacy vriendelijke websites die dit promoten blijken bij tests opeens niet meer te

willen werken of blijken langdurig ip te registreren zoals google en anderen dat doen.

dat is te zien als toch niet zo privacy vriendelijk en het staat ook niet in hun verklaringen.

zodra het over privacy of mileu gaat word je van alle kanten besodemieterd op alle

mogelijke manieren en ook door sites die beter zouden moeten weten.

todo: zijn er sites die het aantoonbaar wel goed doen?

Een instantie als uwv, duo en anderen gebruiken veel informatie ook op oneigelnlijke manieren

zonder dat te melden in privacy verklaringen wat wel verplicht is in de wet.

For example, look at how unsecure Windows 10 can be
