TL;DR - Edge tracks and sends full URLs, user IDs, and other private info to Microsoft. Don’t use it.

Hong Kong Protests Show Dangers of a Cashless Society – Reason.com



Allowing cash to die would be a grave mistake. A cashless society is a surveillance society. The recent round of protests in Hong Kong highlights exactly what we have to lose.

In Hong Kong, most people use a contactless smart card called an "Octopus card" to pay for everything from transit, to parking, and even retail purchases. It's pretty handy: Just wave your tentacular card over the sensor and make your way to the platform.

But no one used their Octopus card to get around Hong Kong during the protests. The risk was that a government could view the central database of Octopus transactions to unmask these democratic ne'er-do-wells. Traveling downtown during the height of the protests? You could get put on a list, even if you just happened to be in the area.

La surveillance des passagers devant les tribunaux, en Allemagne et en Autriche.

Original paper, in english : Passenger surveillance brought before courts, in Germany and Austria.
Depuis mai 2018, les États membres de l'UE sont tenus, en vertu de la directive PNR européenne, d'adopter une législation pour la conservation des données des passagers des compagnies aériennes.
Ainsi, chaque individu, qu'il ait déjà été suspecté ou non d'un crime, peut donc faire l'objet d'enquêtes stigmatisantes, juste pour avoir par coïncidence des trajectoires de vol similaires à celles d'anciens contrevenants.
Traduction de l'article en français, format .pdf.

Le mois dernier, s'est tenue la troisième assemblée générale de La Quadrature. L'occasion de revenir sur les récents changements d'organisation de La Quadrature mais aussi de faire le bilan de notre activité en 2018.
https://www.laquadrature.net/2019/05/10/ag-2019-de-la-quadrature-bilan-et-perspectives/

Notre activité 2018 s'est organisée autour de quatre champs d'action que sont les données personnelles, la censure, la surveillance et les réseaux télécoms.

Les mois à venir promettent d'être tout aussi chargés : la directive copyright est en cours de transposition en droit français, les débats autour du règlement de censure terroriste vont reprendre, la loi contre la hai... Show more...

Rules of thumb:
1. State #surveillance will never ever be used to reward or acquit you, only to publish or frame you
2. The less data one has about you, the less control (leverage) that one has over you
Spying breeds slavery, coercion, tyranny, fear
