Mobile Phone Security for Activists and Agitators.
I just stumbled across this fantastic zine by @hakan_geijer, regarding surveillance and smartphones. There’s a ton of solid information here, as well as highlighting a few stubborn misconceptions. I strongly recommend everyone to read this, regardless of what your threat model or level of involvement in social movements might be.
I wrote a 35 page zine in English about mobile phone security.
A native Spanish speaker did a partial translation before realizing they were in over their head on technical details. If possible, I'd like to get this into Spanish as my suspicion is that it would be the most useful second language for this. If anyone wants to help, let me know.
@b9AcE Lol sorry. I'm having a hard enough time keeping up with one account on one site. I used to be good about cross posting everything, but fuck mate the internet can be draining
For your immediate consumption, I'm releasing a zine on mobile phone security. It covers the basics of how to avoid surveillance, and it does so in depth enough that you can avoid common mistakes and develop your own threat model.
The world is dangerous, but we can be safer.
@dsfgs Wikileaks is a cult around Assange, and Assange is a piece of shit. WL doesn't do journalism (not really) and they're not relevant for leaks anymore. The are very obviously ideologically motivated and it's in no way a "left" motivation
@GustavinoBevilacqua Maybe? I'm not sure if that's theater or being selfish to not have not inside the mask. Maybe both?
My hate for Wikileaks is now scientifically justified.

The actual worst security theater I saw was people who wore nitrile gloves in public but then constantly touched their face and eyes as if the goal of the gloves was to keep the virus off their fingertips rather than off their face.
I completely forgot how many people did this.
@bob I think much security theater thinks it's doing something effective, and in this cases masks stop spit and aerosols, so saying "we don't know, so we'll just protect against one of them" seems like it qualifies.
@bob Sure, it can be theater either intentionally of otherwise, though I did see these late into the pandemic and suspect it was people who didn't want to wear masks but somehow this "counted"
