Privacy | Duckduckgo: Hippe Suchmaschine mit neuen Funktionen | School Psychology Tech | Scoop.it
Die Suchmaschine Duckduckgo präsentiert sich ab sofort in einem neuen Gewand. Und hat auch einige neue Funktionen zu bieten.

 

Die Suchmaschine DuckDuckGo spätestens seit den NSA-Enthüllungen eine steigende Beliebtheit, denn sie legt sehr viel Wert auf die Privatsphäre ihrer Nutzer und will sich so von Google unterscheiden. Nach einer Beta-Phase ist DuckDuckGo nun im neuen Design und mit neuen Funktionen verfügbar.

Facebook's Android app leaks your mobile number, Symantec discovers

Facebook's Android app leaks your mobile number, Symantec discovers | School Psychology Tech | Scoop.it
A discovery about Facebook's official Android app once again puts into question if the social network's developers truly *get* security and privacy.

 

As Symantec describe on its blog, when its developers tested its new Norton Mobile Security product against some of the world’s most popular Android apps, they were disturbed to see a warning message claiming that the Facebook Android app leaks personal information without the device owner’s knowledge:

The good news is that Facebook confirmed Symantec’s findings, and has said it will fix the problem in the next version of its Android app. Furthermore, the social network says that it does not use or process the phone numbers it has been receiving, and has deleted them from its servers. [We hope!]

Tor Browser Bundle-prevents somebody watching your Internet connection

Tor Browser Bundle-prevents somebody watching your Internet connection | School Psychology Tech | Scoop.it

What is the Tor Browser Bundle (TBB)?

 

The Tor software protects you by bouncing your communications around a distributed network of relays run by volunteers all around the world: it prevents somebody watching your Internet connection from learning what sites you visit, it prevents the sites you visit from learning your physical location, and it lets you access sites which are blocked.

 

The Tor Browser Bundle lets you use Tor on Windows, Mac OS X, or Linux without needing to install any software. It can run off a USB flash drive, comes with a pre-configured web browser to protect your anonymity, and is self-contained. Learn more.

It runs ALSO on a USB-Stick (Memory-Stick) and is NOT dependent on any OS! SO... It runs on any computer where ever you are...

Smile! Hackers Can Silently Access Your Webcam Right Through The Browser (Again)

Smile! Hackers Can Silently Access Your Webcam Right Through The Browser (Again) | School Psychology Tech | Scoop.it
You know those people who put tape over their laptop's webcam to keep digital peeping toms at bay? They're not crazy.

Fortunately, getting a solid layer of protection against such exploits moving forward is pretty straightforward. For one, you can tape up that webcam — it’s a bit tinfoil hat, sure, but it’s better than having a photo of your bad bits blasted out to the Internet on some shady-ass Tumblr. Second, consider using Firefox* with something like NoScript, disabling it only for trusted sites.
