Why you need to leave Facebook

Facebook is perhaps the most compromise online platform you can imagine. On the one hand, its users are well aware that you should not even think about any protection when using it. And, on the other hand, they continue to use it not only for workers, but also for personal purposes, supplying Mark Zuckerberg and his partners with confidential information about themselves. Another thing is that not everyone is ready to compromise with themselves.

“There are many different people in the world and some believe that the benefits that Facebook gives them are worth the privacy they lose by using a social network. But here is my advice to such people - you need to abandon Facebook as soon as possible, ”the inventor emphasized.

Why you should abandon Facebook

According to Wozniak, he is very concerned about the invasion of technology companies in the privacy of their customers. But the worst thing is that users themselves do not care about their privacy at all. They share information that cannot be shared with companies and give them access to their messages, although this should never be done.

To balance forces, corporations should start paying users for their data, according to Apple co-founder. The fact is that data is a product, and the product is so valuable that many people are only involved in collecting user data and selling it to advertisers. At least it will be fair to share the proceeds with the owners of the sold data, given the profit that the sale of confidential information brings.

"The public has not yet come to understand that people - administrators or developers - who must be responsible for storing user data, are either at an unjustified risk, either lazy, or just tricky [with data]," said Chris Vickery, director of risk research on UpGuard's network.

Also, after some analysis, it became known that the database found on the network has a lot of information that is duplicated. Thus, the true number of leaked data is about 2 times less. About 200-210 million records. But that is still too much. And if the data on the gender and age are not particularly dangerous, then the phone numbers are very serious. Even if you believe the representatives of Facebook and take into account the fact that the database is really “not fresh”, people, as a rule, do not change phone numbers very often. And this can "incite" telephone spam to users' smartphones. But this is far from the worst. Knowing the phone number, you can access various services (and not only on Facebook) such as email or even bank accounts

The possibility of quantum computing breaking encryption algorithms

The possibility of breaking encryption algorithms is a powerful motivating factor for many countries of the world. Thus, knowledge of the enemy's encryption systems could give a huge advantage in intelligence, while at the same time contributing to the conduct of new fundamental research in the field of physics, since modern experimental systems have at their disposal only less than 100 qubits.    To achieve the useful computing performance of a supercomputer, we probably need machines with hundreds of thousands of qubits. In order for the devices to function correctly, they must correct all minor random errors in the software. In a quantum computer, such errors arise due to imperfect elements of the circuit and the interaction of qubits with their environment. For these reasons, qubits can lose coherence in literally a split second. A quantum computer with 100 qubits can simultaneously represent 2100 solutions. For some tasks, this exponential parallelism can be used to create a h

Simple steps to protect your privacy.

  Step 1. Download DuckDuckGo on all your devices With just one download you'll get tracker blocking, private searching, increased encrypting, and privacy grading on all of your browsing. Our mobile app for iOS/Android (DuckDuckGo Privacy Browser) and browser extensions for Firefox, Chrome, and Safari (DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials) has all of this in one seamless package. Privacy, simplified. Step 2. Update your software Your device operating systems get out-of-date over time, and old software can contain security bugs or settings that leak personal data. Set your devices (and the apps on them) them to update automatically. That way you'll always have the latest, safest versions. Step 3. Update your privacy settings Make sure your devices are using the best privacy settings. Here are step-by-step instructions for all the major device types. Especially make sure you adjust per-app location settings, so that your location history isn’t leaking where it shouldn’t. For extra bonus
