Round up of 5 privacy focused mapping apps - Here WeGo is very good. https://streetfightmag.com/2019/09/19/5-privacy-focused-mapping-solutions
Another UK ISP joins the effort to offer secure DNS resolution endpoints. Thank you, @firstname.lastname@example.org!
We've started a trial of DNS over HTTPS (DoH) and DNS over TLS (DoT) services. Customers are welcome to use these services (eg in Firefox/Android). More information: https://aa.net.uk/dns/
We spoke to @EFF@twitter.com about "the monetisation of [everyone's] personal data" and some of our philosophy for getting behind the initiatives we are involved with to try and claw back privacy for users of the Internet.
Good, balanced article on #DNSoverHTTPS by @EFF@twitter.com with @email@example.com from UK's Faelix ISP https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2019/09/encrypted-dns-could-help-close-biggest-privacy-gap-internet-why-are-some-groups
Remember when hackers injected malicious code into @British_Airways@twitter.com payment pages? @ICOnews@twitter.com fine: £183M. https://faelix.link/bagdpr
Wondering what @firstname.lastname@example.org thinks of this one... https://www.engadget.com/2019/07/18/pampers-lumi-smart-diapers/
Hoping this article will biodegrade when it gets in the sea 🌊
Debian 10 "Buster" has been released! We've got our new VPS templates built, and they'll be live soon! https://faelix.link/debian10
Given the number of people who’ve enabled DNS-over-HTTPS in the last 48 hours, it’s clear @ISPAUK@twitter.com doesn’t understand or appreciate @email@example.com’s so-called “Streisand Effect.”
According to https://www.cbeci.org/ it looks like each Bitcoin transaction wastes the same energy as a lightning strike.
What design of disgraceful delinquency have the depraved DoH desperados at @firstname.lastname@example.org thought of now? Let's see…
Oh. Hmm. Well, after @ICOnews@twitter.com called out the online ad brokering world as borderline illegal, is this a good idea whose time has finally come?
Another DoH provider joins in the “light-hearted […] debate”.
Thanks to @ISPAUK@twitter.com's awful attack on @email@example.com we'll be prioritizing the deployment of our freely available #DoH servers.
(And if you can't wait there's always @firstname.lastname@example.org's https://faelix.net/ref/dns/#privacy-dns if you want to try DoH without using @CloudFlare@twitter.com et al)
Oh no, another bandit! 😎😂
Seriously @ISPAUK@twitter.com and @IWFhotline@twitter.com, look how easy this was, DoH / DoT server at https://adblock.doh.mydns.network providing ad-blocking and malware black-holing (using pi-hole as a backend, no queries are logged). Your complaints are baseless.
Thanks @MigratingDragns@twitter.com for taking a detour, stopping by, and talking about Dastardly-over-HTTPS with us.
Following the uproar over @ISPAUK@twitter.com's #InternetVillain award, @email@example.com and @firstname.lastname@example.org from @email@example.com sat down to talk about why people are so upset about it:
Nice work by @firstname.lastname@example.org!
Hey @ISPAUK@twitter.com, not sure that nomination of yours is working out as planned. Villainy seems to be in fashion right now.
Inspired by @email@example.com & @firstname.lastname@example.org our DNS-over-HTTPS service with @email@example.com filtering and @firstname.lastname@example.org resolving is free to use : https://www.netweaver.uk/dns-over-https/
For the people asking whether email tracking pixels are subject to GDPR and similar EU/UK privacy laws, the answer seems to be YES.
The UK Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) just published updated guidance on cookies and pixels here: https://ico.org.uk/media/for-organisations/guide-to-pecr/guidance-on-the-use-of-cookies-and-similar-technologies-1-0.pdf
