And I thought Facebook scored badly for privacy

After seeing Facebook scoring a C for privacy, which actually was surprisingly high, I just saw a D; in the web interface for Gmail. Yeah, Google is bad too, shame they got the best webmail out there.

The rating comes from an extension called ‘DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials” for the Firefox browser.

What I find most disturbing is the way it’s worded there, and because it’s a very accurate way of wording what is going on and the possible ramifications of it. Google will keep records of you visiting, from where, what computer, etc, FOREVER. They track, or try to track, you across most of the internet, and can use content that you have created in their own products without a second thought; and they can keep doing it into the future with whatever new widgets they come up with.

Bye bye privacy, welcome to 2019.

Shame on Facebook, Shame, Shame, Shame

These three following screenshots sum it up; they’re from the Firefox browser privacy extension DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials. This is the tip of the iceberg, and I’m dropping it off here without much explanation (for now.) Facebook does not care about your privacy of security whatsoever. Even their so called “secret messaging” which they claim is encrypted, actually has a backdoor in it that allows Facebook to access messages from the past when asked by law enforcement.
