"Do you have something to hide?" is a manipulative rebuke to those that use #encryption.
It would help us all turn this conversation around. Because, the answer is: YES, we do have something to hide.
Things that we should hide, and must question why a government or business NEEDS access to:
- Medical history.
- Sensitive conversations with employers, children, spouses.
- Billing and banking information.
- Purchase information.
- Web search history.
Sweden dropped the rape investigation against Julian Assange because "the evidence has weakened considerably due to the long period of time that has elapsed since the events in question".
The prosecutor says, "I would like to emphasise that the injured party has submitted a credible and reliable version of events. Her statements have been coherent, extensive and detailed"
The Assange people are acting like this exonerates him, which it clearly doesn't.

ECSM 2019 – Securing emerging technology (IoT) at home:
Nowadays, there are dozens of IoT devices available for private users/consumers. We present several problems with IoT devices, and ways to secure them.
That's a real low bar #NordVPN has set for themselves 😄
ANNOUNCEMENT: ThinkPrivacy is joining the @privacytoolsIO team! We will continue to bring you the best in privacy related software & services, now in partnership with one of the world's most respected privacy sites.
Read more about this partnership here:
This isn’t #privacy related, but the needs of humanity are above all else - Our small bubble of colleagues have already donated about 400 trees to the #teamtrees initiative to plant TWENTY MILLION trees by 2020.
Please consider donating.
Only $1 gets 1 tree planted.
+6 million have been donated in only three-ish days.
Keep the ball rolling until we hit 20 million!
It seems that during our #PTIOAMA , we finally broke our 15 dollar goal on librapay, which means we will be able to fully run on donations! We now get a generous 18.11$ a week from 13 different patrons!
I would like to issue a thank you to all involved into making this happen, and a special thank you to our generous backers.
Now, lets continue what we do best at Privacytools.io, and spread privacy under the masses.
Thank you, PTIO community!
