  1. @Aura Yeah it is sad but there is the attitude of "I have nothing to hide, so why should I care". Only until you find out what there really is going for you do you realize that the world is a kind of draconian place. You can be speaking about weddings on facebook chat and then 2 seconds later have a load of adverts for weddings .etc. It's not fair and I don't agree with it, but if people still use their service they can add whatever they want to the infamous of terms of service. http://www.foxnews.com/tech/2010/04/15/online-shoppers-unknowingly-sold-souls/ This is quite interesting/funny , they decided to pull a prank to see who would notice...
  2. Agreed to some extent, unfortunately you have to accept the fact your information gets harvested and sold on by using a search engine, Or the fact that google voice search is logged or windows and apple spy on its users constantly, there's no escaping it... The majority if not all here would use windows, (as far as i am aware there isn't a mac version of Emsisoft) that's probably why the discussion isn't about Siri or whatever other mac products. You could always use an alternative search engine like Duck-Duck-Go instead of Google or Bing. And as for operating system the only other option for pure privacy is Linux.. Also using a VPN for encryption and anonymous searching is a good for better privacy- If used correctly.
  3. I probably would if i owned a Mac or I-Phone.
  4. Emsisoft did a good newsletter on basic privacy on windows 10. can be found here: http://blog.emsisoft.com/2015/09/02/the-truth-about-windows-10-spying-on-almost-everything-you-do/ they listed a program which automatically disables intrusive features of windows 10 can be found here: http://www.oo-software.com/en/shutup10 disabling cortana was a first for me, it seemed cool to have a voice controlled computer, but seeing as cortana saves all of the voice recordings i found it to be rather intrusive.
  5. When you try and paste the string in, it doesnt actually let you paste it. Just stays blank. Also today emsisoft internet secuirty was stuck in background mode and now it isnt loading at all, i get the "a major problem has occured". EDIT: Re-installing EIS seems to have fixed it.

  6. Also i tired to paste a long string of IP adresses into a custom rule because i wanted to block an entire country but it wouldn't let me.
