Ive had a think recently about how many of us communicate online and share images and messages. Every so often you find advertising for this lifestyle in places you might not want it or email can be hacked and private images obtained.
I have some ideas of how we can make sure our data is safe ..... i know many women who would not want there pictures used to create CGI deep fake porn. We aren't in the 90s anymore.
Encrypted email with a vpn.
A global vpn which means you can move your location to another country ( i find this facinating when googling) but the vpn encrypts you data.
What does that mean?
Encrypted email is the post box, the vpn is the delivery driver.
Onion layer encrypted and kill switch are good ideas too.
Clear you cookies and your browsing history regularly. You can also mess the algorithm up by playing stupidest things i can find and just search for random crap until it makes you laugh with the absurdity of the internet.
Messages...your messages (i don't know about here) but even if the message or image is gone from your screen it can and often is held in a data bank... to be sold to the highest bidder. I didn't realise how bad it was and now feel like a walking data farm and no the irony is not lost on me when im putting this up on the internet.
So again message encrypted apps are not a bad idea.
- encrypted email
-encripted messaging app, check the encryption.
Hope this might help. I put this up as i started to think of what it was like growing up with the internet and trying to find the actual bdsm community. There are many fakes out there who just wanted images, even during teen years. After finding out about how things are collected and sold i realised they might not just ask for photos anymore they might just buy them from data collection instead when you think your sending photos to someone you trust and love.
So yes i hope this helps x
