Forcing contract tracing apps upon the public may be the first wave of an all out war on privacy.
Consider avoiding all technology that real-time tracks & shares your location.
Saying ‘no’ is a superpower that we all share.
If you want to fight back - Choose to be vocal about saying no. Discuss with friends & family in all social channels. Immediately contact your politician. Avoid supportive purchases.
@resist1984 Normally, we have a "do this if better" approach to all things, as perfectionism gets us nowhere. However, in the case of all mass surveillance mechanisms, we have a firm do-not-support.
People should not have to choose between total surveillance or total surveillance.
@theprivacyfoundation So i think the privacy problem is solvable. But note that Bruce Schneier makes an interesting case for #ContactTracing apps being /ineffective/: https://www.schneier.com/blog/archives/2020/05/me_on_covad-19_.html which is perhaps a better case than the privacy case.
@resist1984 Agree with Bruce that the ineffectiveness is relevant and should be forefront in the argument.
