Me too. I just find their marketing about Germany being some bastion of privacy as misleading.Rather trust the EU than the other continents
Always factual in reporting from what I've read. Sites rating such things report the same. Slightly Left political bias in reporting though.Spiegel = Fake news site
DW is Germany's international public broadcaster.The other DW.com ? never heard of it
Agree.don't won't worry about privacy, because you never had it from the start.
yes, one simple thing, avoid to use your real name as much as you can for non-administrative/banking sites and never use your real name alongside your real picture.but I think what we should do is at least try to minimize it as much as possible, but you can not avoid it as an individual.
Hey, I wasn't fast enough to reply on your pre-edit post, according to @Faybert 's march test AV Test - MalwareTips Complete Report - March 2018 - G Datano flaming we good
just that the hub's tests sometimes are misleading, you only know the full story when you do the test yourself.
as you can see from the chart, those big sample packages have 70-80% static detection and the leftover 4-5 samples were doc's and phising pdfs and scripts that couldn't make a connection anymoreHey, I wasn't fast enough to reply on your pre-edit post, according to @Faybert 's march test AV Test - MalwareTips Complete Report - March 2018 - G Data
it did pretty well, got some info to share what you were talking about those 20 malware packs and 70%? Did it fail at some point in your testing and let some **** walk through BB?
The bigger picture is that collected data can sometimes be audited by the customer but not actually cleared out completely. If your account were to be hacked on Facebook or Google (e.g. an attacker infected your system and installed a keylogger, a service was hacked and a dump was posted online regarding credentials and it was not encrypted, etc.) then an attacker can theoretically and potentially (depending on the service) run off with years worth of intelligence collected on you. Advertisement profiling, call logs, e-mails sent and received, personal and confidential chat conversations, contacts lists, search history, YouTube watch history, recorded download logs, etc.It's funny how some people who think, for example, Facebook doesn't have their info because they're not on Facebook. The company is massive and it is most likely with all your care and protection they already do. Same goes with every major company.
The data collection at such major companies occurs on millions of users that is used to analyze and influence trends, no one at these companies is sitting to collect your data alone.
The underline hits the nail on the head. I have said it before many times, they can not collect what you do not divulge, it is that simple. There is no need to worry about the other that you can not control, much like life.Nowadays I think there's no sense to get paranoid about this, as it is too late to do so, but I think what we should do is at least try to minimize it as much as possible, but you can not avoid it as an individual.
