Political campaigns tap into the same intrusive adtech tracking systems used to deliver online behavioral ads. We saw a glimpse into how this worked after the Cambridge Analytica scandal, and the system has only grown since then....

How to make it so frequently used sites don't constantly require 2FA?

I know two factor authentication is considered more secure than just passwords, but here’s the deal: One of my family members uses Linux Mint on their laptop (at my recommendation and yes, they are aware that it’s not a Mac), and while they’ve mostly adapted to the different workflows (coming from a macbook), one of their...

Is there a way to download a Windows.iso anonymously?

Bringing the cancer of the MODERN WEB (TM) to one of the last bastions of the old web (aka the real web!). How Kafkaesque. ( www.youtube.com )
