In the endless series
'Google is EVIL'
Yesterday I learned that any #COVID19 tracking app will be under full control of G👀gle and you must use their proprietary 'Play Services' to access the needed API.
And today I learned that you need to give G👀gle the PRIVATE keys to your app:
This means G👀gle can distribute an 'update' to your app with a BACKDOOR whenever they want.
App 'updates' were touted to p0wn your phone a while back (iirc);
this is the implementation.
Time for another installment in the #GoogleIsEvil series:
G👀gle is going to ban #android apps which allow their users to connect to instances which could have contents that they don't approve of.
That's a 'bit' too many elements of fascism for me. Time for (yet) another hashtag?
and @firstname.lastname@example.org doing the right thing once again 😎
New installment of #GoogleIsEvil 😖
"Every website and every Chrome user will be opted into FLoC by default without any say in that choice. That is a decision Google has made for us all."
G👀gle is telling you that you're all their bitch, unless you take specific actions against that. #DefaultsMatter
If you don't want your site/blog/etc to be #GoogleIsSpyware, YOU will have to modify your webserver's configuration 🖕
