Hi, I’m Joshua. I’m an adult (yes…we exist!). I’m a shy, socially anxious introvert that enjoys video games & spending way too much time on social media advocating for the many causes I believe in.

The need for careful digital privacy and data hygiene in the abortion access movement is paramount. Here’s a high level guide on some ways to approach it:

Your phone number identifies you.

When you sign up with a phone number, apps which might seem private become vulnerable.

That's why Session doesn't require a phone number for sign-up.

It took too long (yay two months of procrastination?) but I finally wrote a blog post about joining the child protection & human rights organization, Prostasia Foundation, as their Social Media Manager joshuacasey.net/posts/2022/feb

We’re pleased that Apple has come out with an Android app called Tracker Detect that addresses some serious threats to the privacy and safety of stalker victims. But it is not enough. Apple and Google can do more to protect users against physical trackers. eff.org/deeplinks/2021/12/appl

I don’t know who needs to hear this but…

Privacy isn’t:

- A premium feature
- A setting you must configure
- About having something to hide

Privacy is:

- A basic human right.

“I’m pretty excited to announce that I’m a new Social Media volunteer for @ProstasiaInc. I’ve always felt kinda bad that I can’t afford to support them financially. So being given this opportunity to help & support them in a different way is pretty cool!

We generate a troubling amount of personal data by interacting with the digital world in simple, necessary ways.

There are a lot of great ways to mitigate this — start by not buying your baby a smart watch 🙃

Apple is slowly boiling frogs on client-side scanning.

They got a backlash when they announced everything they were planning all at once so now they’re drip feeding it, hoping you won’t notice.

If you had told me “Apple is just the same as Google on privacy” six years ago, you would have been wrong because they were incomparably better (ar.al/notes/apple-vs-google-on).

If you were to tell me the same thing today, you would still be wrong. Because when they implement client-side scanning, they will actually be worse (ar.al/2021/08/08/apple-is-tryi).

Never forget: No trillion-dollar corporation is your friend.
