  1. This is the issue..this isn't Google's fault,Microsoft's fault…this is YOUR FAULT! Nobody reads the terms of service and then is shocked when stuff like this happens! I knew 4 days ago that the Face App was did I know..I read the terms of service for the app! You have got to read!!!

  2. I have to come one day please wait for.๐ŸŽป๐ŸŽถ๐ŸŽต๐ŸŽธ๐ŸŽธ๐ŸŽธ๐ŸŽธ๐ŸŽธ๐ŸŽธ๐ŸŽธ๐Ÿ›ซ๐Ÿ›ซ๐Ÿ›ซ๐Ÿ›ซ๐Ÿ›ซ๐Ÿ›ซ๐Ÿ›ซ๐Ÿ›ซ

  3. The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized

  4. The only extension I use is for Adblock plus.A couple of months ago, I bought a couple of smart plugs that said they would be compatible with my Alexa but decided not to use them because they required me to download an app from some dodgy looking Chinese company. Thinking of giving them to my brother-in-law because he's a douche.

  5. The internet is evil. I remember when the Internet was young. It was for research and email. Now it's just evil.

  6. No matter how much you try, Democrat party media, the American people are on to your advocacy for this corrupt, tr.easonous and plain evil party. All it has gotten you since 2016 is a few points off Trump's ratings and your complete credibility. So go ahead. Knock yourself out. We're smarter than you think!

  7. I doubt there is any software, paid or free, that you can TRUST is not mining and selling your data one way or another. There is no privacy or confidentiality these days – world wide. Anyone who is determined and has the resources to dig up your entire history since you were born can do so – like right from their computer… if you don't believe this is true, then you just aren't paying attention. I personally don't care… in fact, I get a chuckle thinking about some poor schmuck wasting his/her time combing through my data looking for something worth anything. Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha

  8. Nothing surprising here. Nothing is for free unless itโ€™s open source and even then you must be careful of bad actors repackaging it for nefarious use. First question before installing anything is why itโ€™s available. Follow the money. If itโ€™s free then ask why.

  9. Thanks for that! I did some extensive research on Google Android and several major brands of Smartphones using Google Android operating systems and the tremendous amount of data being actively collected not only by third-party apps but built-in services and utilities installed from the manufacturers and being sent to servers around the world, including China, Russia and East Asia was astonishing. I've been using a Non-google Open Source version of Android for over a year now and find it more than adequate with three times the battery life 1/4 the amount of mobile data usage. I also use a separate Device for social media and youtube.

  10. Meanwhile, mainstream media is still providing cover for the widespread censorship of conservatives and the manipulation of news algorithms, all designed to unfairly manipulate US elections.

  11. At Least this is the best effort by WP in years put here otherwise it's just sad era of journalism !
    Helping common and unaware man from dangers they can not see or foresee !

  12. Great and important video, thanks for sharing this! Removed 95% fo my extensions ๐Ÿ˜.
    I would like even more if you wouldn't add all the extra visuals ๐Ÿ˜‰. Remember, shorter videos lead to better engagement.

  13. Yeah, Google should block extension makers from misusing our data, and Google should vet extensions, but we should be angry at Nacho Analytics too! They should be penalized like Equifax for leaking sensitive data and misleading terms of service. If they were gonna sell our data, they at least should have anonymized it. Moral of the story, uninstall extensions and phone apps you don't really need. Try to use open source alternatives on Fdroid, or check descriptions and see if the website points to Github.
