Please welcome our new digest!

As companies find more sophisticated ways to harvest and analyze user data, as governments seek more options to control people's online activities, it's becoming more and more important to keep your eye on the ball and understand what happens around. Awareness, inter alia, may help to raise your voice against controversial innovations just in time.

There were times when we published a monthly digest of industry news that had been covered in our blog, but it didn't catch on. Now we want to experiment with a weekly format. In today's article we collected the recent news from the industry of ad blocking, privacy protection, and Web security, which we consider worthy of your time — and also some of the older news that may have went past you back then but still retain their relevance today.

1. Should you go passwordless just yet?
2. "Facebook Files" revealing all the dark secrets we already suspected about
3. Just reminding you why ads are not good
4. You might be wrong about who's actually eavesdropping on you

Zuckerberg is proud, our future is awful, apps scan your photos yet again: AdGuard's digest
How do you do today? Our digest is hardly good to raise your mood, but we discuss important stuff. A lot has already happened in the first half of October, and probably some more big changes lie ahead.
1. Mark Zuckerberg: criticized but not embarrassed.
2.Apple did something good for privacy and security, but it's up to you to benefit from it.
3. Moar dystopia! Here's some from The Internet Archive.
4. Another new feature of Apple just exposed Chinese apps behaving Chinese.
5. Google voice assistant: hears more than you think, makes more mistakes than you'd like, will listen more and make more mistakes in the future.
6. Mozilla found a new place for an ad, what a joy.

From your earlier post:
... Shortly: Manifest V3 is the name for the new upcoming browser extension API. It intends to make extensions more secure by stripping extensions of access rights to web requests and, therefore, of many useful capabilities. So AdGuard’s Chrome extension might lose the ability to block ads as effectively as it does today. This will happen only in 2023, but we are already working on solving the possible problems.
I know it's still early but I wonder which adblocker(s) will be ready for Manifest V3 roll-out? AdGuard must have the biggest team of devs.:unsure:
