am i live it looks like i am live people hello we're starting with 50 people that's pretty fantastic how's everyone doing today thought i'd surprise the world with a live stream and i wanted to thank all of our subscribers who are subscribed and they're going to get notified about this right away all i did was send a tweet um about this so if you're here it means you're a subscriber so thank you very much this is my reward to you you get to ask any question and i'm going to do my best to get back to any question i don't know everything but
00:37
hopefully i'll be able to give you some insight into things today so let me go ahead and check this out cool cool all right i already got some comments and some questions so just so everyone knows feel free to ask any questions you want in our live stream i am not going to be checking our other platforms today maybe next time i'm going to see how this goes and maybe next time we can see about live streaming to multiple sources like peertube and odyssey and maybe even allowing you all to communicate from our communities but for today we're just
01:11
going to stick with the left youtube to keep things very simple so really ask anything you want and today i'm just going to be going back and forth and trying to go through everything and now obs does not have my live chat up so i'm gonna manually add that real quick one second everybody i'm gonna try to make this as good as i can on the spot all right so we are going to do this pop out window
02:00
there you go ah that's the wrong one cool all right here we go so now you have a little chat menu and i'm gonna scoot myself over whoa hello everybody and now this doesn't make much sense so let's move the window capture boom all right we're good now i'm going to get back to your questions so feel free to go ahead and
02:43
start going we're going to go one at a time so welcome profile nice to see you on here what's the best vpn out right now that's going to depend on your use case of course like everything it depends so go ahead and check out our vpn tools what i haven't told you guys is i actually have a browser window so i will be showing you things along the way when necessary so i'm going to go ahead and boop so if you go to our website teclar.tech and you're going to go to vpn toolkit
03:14
vpn chart um this is probably what i think is one of the best resources on the internet for finding vpns you can go here and you can see what vpn fits your use case the best this is all open source you can check all this data if you find a mistake please report it it will be updated to be fixed but you can go through here this is all based on a universal protocol and i think if you go through these you're going to find which one is probably going to be best for you there's really no like best overwhelming vpn for everybody let's go ahead i want to move semi-quick
03:45
today because i feel like there's gonna be a lot of questions um is nord any good still i think again it depends i hear a lot of good things about nord when it comes to streaming capabilities or speed or just sheer server counts but if you're looking for privacy and security there's probably some more trusted services out there that have dealt with less issues than nord that is what i'll have to say about that um we make a video on element one we talked about it in surveillance support for those who don't know element is a matrix client it's an open source matrix client and element just released
04:16
something called element one which essentially takes the bridging service where you can communicate between elements and things like signal and telegram whatsapp really any other messenger for the most part that you know of it allows you to bridge between them so if your family members are stuck on whatsapp you can actually communicate with them via matrix without needing a whatsapp account it's pretty cool element1 essentially makes this a little bit simpler and it's their own service i don't think it's personally something we're going to cover just because in the scheme of the whole privacy world i
04:47
don't think it's that big of news but it is something cool and we'll keep an eye on it if it's something that needs to have content made about it we will likely be covering matrix a little bit more extensively in the next couple months so which i know some of you will be looking forward to almost shut down my pc for the night i'm glad i didn't do not want to miss this well i'm glad you're here um more people that we have here the better so i'm very happy about that best mobile internet for laptop preferably anonymous well none of them are going to be anonymous i'd first define what anonymity means to you because um
05:19
internet inherently is not going to be anonymous unless you do a lot of things to make it anonymous so just going out and buying any internet probably isn't going to be anonymous if it's following you around everywhere you go so however if we're going to go for a very simplified approach and you're just looking for basic mobile internet for your laptop your options are going to be getting some kind of cell plan for your phone that is going to be a hot spot or that you can use as a hotspot if your phone supports that for your laptop and i'd probably take a look at mint mobile if you're in the us um you can get it
05:48
with cash at like target and best buy or if you want something a little bit more robust that is actually built for probably more laptop usage check out the calyx institute they develop calyx os calyx institute has unlimited lte hotspots and i have one that's how i do a lot of uh the work for teclor actually because i don't do a ton of work from the office i do a lot of work when i'm on the go and it's unlimited internet and it comes out to i think 40 a month it's pretty spectacular another question how to get past proton's sms verification one-time
06:20
numbers all being used can't find any i believe proton requires sms verification um based on some automated system they used to try to pick up spam so people aren't spamming for free accounts if you're going through tor you're probably going to need an sms number or you're going to have to pay i don't know what the workarounds are for this i haven't extensively tried to get around those so i'm probably not the best person to ask how get get gov to stop being my biggest security risk by releasing a personal info to everyone um probably preventing them from getting in the first place if
06:52
we're talking something like the dmv you're going to want to make sure dmv if you can doesn't have your real address um they might not have to have your real phone number or your real email as for things like your identification those aren't things you can really hide so the best you can do without going into more of a higher threat model is just limiting the information you're allowed to give them and that's really the best you can do and set up security settings when you can as well a lot of things have extra security if you ask for them they are not a default typically
07:23
what can be done to protect my phone from pegasus if you're asking you're probably not having to worry about pegasus pegasus as um wild as it is is not something that's affecting 99.99 of people uh that doesn't mean that won't change in the future it's just as of right now that's not something i'd be concerned about there is a tool online but i can't think of the name but if you search it online it's a tool that was developed to be able to uh check if your phone is infected with pegasus i actually do not know as of right now the best a
07:54
way to prevent getting pegasus on your phone simply because it's not something many people have to worry about most likely has proton only ever asked me for capture verification yeah so proton normally just does a capture verification but if there's some kind of something that triggers their automation systems then um you might have to do some other kind of verification you mentioned bluetooth recently i'd like a lot more info about the security risks also the risks of air tags and tile trackers i really don't understand that tech um so first on before even talking about bluetooth just
08:24
generally speaking radios which includes wi-fi cellular gps bluetooth and as of more recently nfc which is used in things like apple pay google pretty much any pay uses nfc for the most part for the most part in the privacy and security world any radio is something that you should try to avoid using because almost every radio has its own exclusive security risks and or privacy risks bluetooth is a major one of those so bluetooth pretty much every month we see some kind of major bluetooth
08:56
vulnerability that doesn't mean it's inherently an insecure protocol but it kind of is like if we really look at the history of bluetooth it's just a very messy protocol that has suffered so many security issues what you're referring to is the very recent news that came out about the privacy risks of bluetooth which there's there's always been to some extent privacy risks with bluetooth but these ones are a little bit more uh concerning considering they can really start tying together the places you're going because of your unique bluetooth fingerprints so
09:27
we've always said when i say we i say like tech lore like the new oil will say this a lot of people will say just try to avoid using radios as much as possible and just because there are normally always going to be associated risks with any kind of radio to keep this as simple as possible for this live stream as for air tags and tile trackers i know there's already been some good research but these are very early on in production and those things might have already been patched i just think it's a little bit too early for us to tell airtag specifically what all the concerns are going to be and i'm also very unfamiliar with all the concerns
09:59
myself so not something i want to cover in this but it's something i'm going to keep an eye on and we can make content on in the future as things start begin to develop i think apple already patched the pegasus exploit right most people didn't really have to worry about it anyway yeah exactly most people didn't have to worry about it i actually do not know if apple patched it i do believe that uh what you said makes sense but also i can't confirm that over live stream i did not hear about that hello impolite cat i've seen your is that a um
10:29
gosh i'm gonna sound like such a boomer right now but i've seen beluga the youtuber have this profile picture and i don't know if this profile picture originated from a meme or from beluga or just something totally unrelated so if someone can fill me in i'd love to learn something new today myself profile i know you're my biggest fan we we need to we need to meet up sometime i love this and what you're doing totally bestie thanks for joining again really grateful for this channel your gut someone comes to my security please continue this amazing work totally i
11:00
love doing this so it means a lot to hear people also say they love it too because that just makes it twice as good um i use winscribe and typically connect to west coast servers what do you use android or ios i use a custom rom so in short um i am team android though technically we have an iphone laying around that is exclusively used for a certain social media platform that is tecla related that is secret that i don't tell people on other platforms because the goal is to get them off of that platform i don't want to say it because then it's
11:31
in some way promoting it but we are on a social media platform where we make video content and the video content is about privacy and security risks about that platform and other platforms with the goal of moving them off of there and i'm not talking about it and you're not going to find it on any of our website or related information because the goal is for people not to find it except the people who are already on there um i just ordered a motorola razer v3 a blackberry torch and a blackberry bold good for you and politecat i hope you enjoy that are you planning on installing anything on those or just
12:01
using them as stock is google authentic i'm guessing you mean google authenticator sending out any data or is it fine to use um so actually this is where i'm gonna probably ruffle some feathers of all the google products you can install on your phone i'm gonna say that google authenticator is probably one of the ones that's totally fine um i have used google authenticator in the past and have analyzed the web traffic and it's never even attempted to connect to the internet and even if it did what's it going to share to google your your the seeds for your 2fa codes which yes
12:32
should be kept local by default by all means but if your concern is some kind of privacy risk i think it's mostly fine now if you're on a rom like calyx os you can actually completely block the internet of google authenticator to 100 ensure it's not even going to leave the device even if you tried um so that those are my thoughts on google authenticator right there i think it's fine but here's why i would tell you to get off of it because they don't let you take your seats and if for those of you who watched their 2fa guide you'll know that that's like my biggest gripe your app that you use 2fa with should let you
13:04
export your seeds and google authenticator doesn't let you do that so i would recommend as soon as you can moving over to either aegis for android or rivo for uh ios rivo's r-a-i-v-o and aegis is aegis so i still recommend moving off of google authenticator but not necessarily from a privacy perspective just a usability and like freedom of the open standard perspective i'm going to go ahead and read the comments here first because they donated so i should like reward that thank you guys what email service do you suggest
13:35
to use for heavy email usage oh man i'm gonna ruffle some feathers here as well um i love protonmail we use it for our business that's everything teclor goes through protonmail so we have we have a team account all of our team members are through protonmail i can manage them with an admin account i don't know if it gets heavier than that for email usage and that's how we do all of our business and that's how we conduct everything and we did explore two to node as well we tried nota and it just didn't work for us as well so i check out proton i would check out two denota there's posteo as well and there's also
14:07
mailbox.org um actually post don't don't don't go for postio based on this live stream please don't just do proton 2d mailbox.org and also consider self-hosting if you have that capability but there's issues with self-hosting as well because you have to maintain it and keep it secure so really check out protonmail it doesn't fix all of email's privacy and security issues but it's still a great improvement yes i follow you on tick-tock what about it well i didn't want to say that we're on there to get people off of it
14:38
but you can go ahead and check that out but don't subscribe or use it i do encourage you to delete it that's the whole point of us being on there um let's go back i'm curious about how a person can remain private and secure while being an entrepreneur like how are businesses set up in a secure way um so oh sorry did i skip some things i did skip some things i'm sorry everyone i thought this was the same question as the because they are the same questions so i got mixed up everyone's asking the same question i use a custom rom i think that answers
15:09
the question pretty well is cube's os or mac better again really going to depend on what you're going for here very different operating systems for very different use cases cubes os is going to allow you to really compartmentalize things accordingly because you can essentially set up a vm for everything on the fly with cubes it's great for that mac os is kind of a nice daily driver for just a basic pricing security perspective if you're not looking to keep things too complicated but they really are aimed at different threat models different use cases so many different things i don't even want to answer that question
15:41
because it's not even in my opinion a good question now larry if you want to ask me and give me more context of your situation that might be a better question to ask but this is just a very oversimplified question that i don't it's just a very hard question to answer i think it's a flawed question um so try to apply this question more to like a broader threat model or something um more tangible to help you out there how safe unsafe is using bluetooth for sending files keyboards i think if you're at home and
16:11
you're in a safe environment using bluetooth is fine i'll use bluetooth in my car when i'm driving i'll use bluetooth at home if i need to transfer things between two devices i just think the the main concern as of today is just keeping bluetooth on all day and just leaving it on 24 7. um even then you're probably going to be fine again all these things are theoretical risks so even if you do that you're probably going to be fine but it's still recommended to do as much as you can to prevent any possible issues from arising have you heard of embassy os i have not hey man i want to say i've been showing
16:42
your videos to my boomer co-workers like monavie private but don't know how to thank you for all your great advice totally and um i really am glad to hear that because um the whole thing that we try to do is make our content as approachable as possible and um so every time we hear that like this works and like like we can you guys feel comfortable showing it to people you know irl that really like is great feedback for us are you streaming from linux right now i am not um there's a very good reason why we don't use linux for our production workflow and our work devices you must cover it if you haven't um
17:13
embassy os we have there's a lot of operating systems we need to cover um just saying do you think with alexa google assistant etc recording things that advertising now uses real-time conversation i mean the main argument i saw against it was that a lot of data to process this is hard um i don't think we've received concrete evidence that these devices are using real-time conversations to target you with advertisements however i would expect it to come out in the future that something either like this or indirectly tied to this will come out
17:44
i think it's already very obvious that if you maybe not exactly what you say is used for advertising but if you buy a hard drive from amazon via your alexa they now know that you bought a hard drive you have some kind of technical knowledge everything you buy everything you ask it i assume will eventually be used to build a deeper profile about you so maybe not directly yet that's kind of a legal loophole though um i would just assume yes to make it simple and really just ease your mind because that's probably the easiest way to answer that question it's just like yes they will in
18:15
some way use the conversations and the things that you ask it to target you in some way shape or form down the road it's just a little bit more nuanced than that and it's kind of hard to cover it let's go back down to the um what are these even called i swear i don't use youtube people think i use youtube because i publish to youtube i don't use youtube much um i don't know what these are called but they're like the the highlighted comments obviously that's why i don't follow you on tick tock anymore going to talk about your facebook account though um we don't
18:46
have a facebook account i actually we we are unable to set up a facebook account in a way that um works with our threat model as a business believe it or not even though like we're able to have tik tok and whatnot it's just not possible with facebook as of right now um otherwise we would be on facebook and trying to get um our content on facebook in some way shape or form thoughts on the orchard crypto and its decentralized vpn i'm really sorry marky but i've never heard of it and i don't feel comfortable commenting on it um sorry if uh i i i wish i could answer
19:16
your question a little bit better there i will i promise to do research out on it after this this video this live stream um where were we there's so many questions i didn't expect as many people to be live um i'm gonna try to go quicker through this boom embassy os we talked about that is using make okay okay where are we is there any open source app for android allows you to make an encrypted phone call without using the internet and does not charge for the phone call no uh i don't believe that is technically possible um the only one that might
19:48
technically be able to do something similar would be something like briar um but that requires you to be like within range of someone or on the same wi-fi network and i don't think briar does phone calls yet but you might be able to do audio messages i don't know but no that kind of violates like the way the internet works because you need something to be processing your data how's the new m1 macbook pro treating you wonderful i very much recommend it for like a video production hey man please don't delete the stream after it's finished it won't be it's still going to be here is using matrix for instagram good for privacy
20:18
is using matrix for instance what do you mean are you talking about matrix the federated chat platform and if so how does that tie into instagram uh please elaborate on this question and hopefully we'll get back to it best vpn out now is nord any good still we already covered this i'm going to go back to the really nifty oh look at that um go to our site teclor.tech go to vpn toolkit go to vpn chart i don't think there's a single best vpn that applies to everyone go check out our chart it's all based on an open source review
20:50
protocol all the data here is open source please report issues if you see anything and i think that really you can go through this and you can also select multiple and click compare and you can compare directly it's great um boom calyx institute so it's spelled with a y so c-a-l-y-x institute great great great organization i fanboy hardcore um they did the work they do is just phenomenal for the privacy community all right i can't wait anymore i will be
21:23
donating some crypto tonight you guys are amazing totally hey um we only accept monero that's the only way to do it so i hope you do monero um in our monero you can find our monero at our xmr all right you can find where to send the xmr in the description of this video what do you think of the lesser of two email what do you think is the lesser of two email anonymity apples hide my email or duckduckgo's email privacy production i'm gonna keep this very simple and this is going to be a very over simplified explanation if you're already
21:56
in the apple ecosystem and they're you're already trusting them with your emails to some extent just stick with apple's thing i don't know i think it's called private relay just stick with private relay if you're not in apple's ecosystem very easy go to duckduckgo's if you want to use that though honestly instead of either of them i'd recommend simple login or aid on addy um that's really like the really kind of like the trump of both of those in my opinion check out embassy os self-hosted service yep as i said i'll go check it out afterwards i'm gonna have to rewatch this stream and like do research on all
22:28
the things i couldn't answer that's how we all learn if you guys ever become live streamers i hope you do the same thing good morning henry it is night time here but good morning wherever you are in the world i use windows without antivirus firewall and vpn do you think it can be reliable um i would still enable windows defender if you can and i don't know what you mean by reliable but yes technically you can have a reliable windows operating system just search for it now looks interesting is there a private way to use snap snapchat um you guys need to elaborate more on your questions i can't read your mind
22:59
there's there's many things that are snappy it could be snapchat it could be the snap packages it could be a lot of things why do you always push paid services not teach them how to play a self-hosted service because not everyone wants to take the time to put together a self-hosted service and there also there's a bigger risk of them screwing something up from a security perspective um you hear all the time about full-blown companies right major companies fortune 500 companies who expose data because of some cloud configuration issue um and these are full companies with like
23:30
salary engineers who went to school and have all this stuff done so self-hosting things isn't always the best option for everyone if they're not going to be able to do it properly and that's why it's very important for us to realize different threat models and the the perspective and what people need from everything you're trying to do so i always do caution away from oh just go for self-hosting option don't trust anyone um just because sometimes you do have to find a compromise there depending on who the individual is but also we don't always push paid services like um i think you're probably responding to the email stuff if you
24:00
watch our top five best email providers video which is a subjective video that's what we think is the best the number one choice is self-hosting so like that if you watch that video that is our top choice that's better than all the paid service options um pop pop it's called don't login delete cookies is android 12 any better for privacy not just you're gonna find some of the basic improvements in mostly the security realm they do have some new android 12 privacy reports but inherently there aren't that many changes from android 11 that i've seen
24:31
again i'd recommend reading the documentation yourself but in my opinion it's it's pretty similar you're going to find some minor improvements but overall another thing there's some visuals now for the camera and microphone when they're activated it's mostly surface level stuff in my opinion what are your thoughts about age capture dominating to capture alternatives um not much i mean i guess i wish there was more but it used to be only google now it's h captcha and i like h capture better than google captcha i guess hopefully one day we'll get more but
25:02
i don't know it's fine uh what about airplane mode with wi-fi what about airplane mode with wi-fi um let's expand make sure to ask good questions because there's a lot of them i'm not going to try to take time to decipher all them with carriers requiring so much personal information with carriers requiring so much personal info can you block the info they share that depends getting a carrier doesn't have to involve any personal info depending on the country you're in if you're in the u.s i talked about mint mobile earlier um you can get other prepaid plans at just your local target
25:32
711 best buy just go there and pay with cash and you're good to go um as for what is collected while you use the carrier you cannot do anything about that that's why people who are on the anti-vpn train i go hey then how are you going to prevent your internet service provider or your cell carrier from just straight up collecting all your web data just use tor and it's like okay well if you're on an iphone you can't tunnel everything through tor if you're on android you have to use orbot for everything which is going to make everything on your
26:02
phone incredibly slow you're going to get captured some apps might not even work with orbot as i've learned myself so again you have to find compromises also avoid sms and phone calls try to use things with end-to-end encryption so that way they don't have your communication and they don't have the ability to view your web traffic that's what i recommend which of the tech giants in your opinion is the worst and why facebook like without a doubt i think facebook is genuinely the most evil company that's ever been on this earth um there is nothing redeeming about the company in my honest opinion
26:33
it's not like some formal teclor stance um but like that is my opinion i think facebook is hands down the worst tech giant it's no comparison though they're they're all of them are in their own ways bad i feel like facebook just is bad in every possible way do you recommend anything for personal privacy security for your home um this is something i'm still learning myself and so i'm not going to comment too much on it i will say i do have some people on my list that i want to reach out to to get more information on it that are definitely more groovy in that realm
27:04
what do you think about line messenger compared to the usual suspects uh i have never heard a line messenger so i'm not gonna comment on it i think it was beluga okay so it is beluga i'm in a discord server with beluga and he's really cool and we did a live stream together on i am lucid's channel if you ever wanted to watch that live stream i'm on it though i don't i think lucid hides his live streams after they're over though how can i ensure my privacy in my workplace uses an hr website that uses trackers that don't respect firefox or chromiums do not track requests i'm not allowed to use the hr website at work that's going to depend on a lot of
27:35
things um it's going to depend on is this on a device that's only for work is without getting too complex you're going to have to compartmentalize things right when you work you're going to have to use your work software if you can get that off of your personal devices to whatever extent you can that's really the best thing you're going to be able to do there's not much of a solution except voicing your concerns to higher ups and just hoping they do something better so really you're going to take matters into your own hands and compartmentalize everywhere you can does using ono shut up make windows close to a secures ubuntu
28:06
massive over simplification question there um the easiest thing i'll say is this will make windows better from a privacy perspective generally that's really it as for that it's really hard to compare operating systems like that they're going to accomplish different things i i'd say that if you're really chasing after privacy and you're able to use linux i do think ubuntu will still be a better option than windows with oh no shut up but it's a very complex question and that's something that deserves a lot more time than just a quick answer
28:39
should i use protonmail or mozilla thunderbird mail um well thunderbird is a um correct me if i'm mistaken thunderbird is going to be a desktop client i don't think mozilla hosts its own email um but someone correct me if i'm wrong so protonmail is actually hosting the email for you and protoman does not have local clients but they do have a bridging service that might allow to work with thunderbird so actually if i'm understanding this correctly you can actually get protonmail and use it
29:11
with thunderbird if you're on a protonmail paid plan i believe i got that right someone please correct me if i'm wrong it's a meme called pilot cat okay man that was like 20 minutes ago you guys are responding to something all right why do you keep a password and what um what do you recommend to keep it password manager safe besides 2fa um just have a strong password um if you're really paranoid i don't like using the word paranoid if you want to be more secure you can have multiple databases set up and also you can also on some things like keypads allow you to have a key file which is essentially 2fa or
29:41
they can even have hardware keys so that is an option as well all right we got another one where is it anyways besties don't forget to support techlore oh there we go by becoming a patreon donating using barry's bat system um thanks sammy depresso uh they're one of our patrons and it's always great to have you around um and thanks for thanks for promoting our stuff for us so i don't have to say it um let's do a little trolling all right um youtube is my only google weakness why
30:20
people say google chrome is a huge security risk um i don't i haven't heard that generally speaking chrome is actually regarded to be a very secure browser it's the privacy risks that you should be concerned about with chrome nice hoodie thank you i've had this hoodie for like three years or two years it's been a while um and it's one of my favorite hoodies it's so comfortable in your 50 second video about using vpns for sam you said it's not recommended can you elaborate i'm not going to get into that in this live stream because that is something that truly deserves like a 10 minute explanation however in that
30:51
youtube short i believe there's a link in the description that links to the official the official tor docs that explains all the different configurations and the pros and cons to each one and that is where i'd they're going to give a better answer than i can give you um so i really recommend going there what's your thoughts on using art clone crypt with web gui on google drive instead of a privacy forced cloud service i've used rclone um if it works for you then totally go for it um those are my thoughts if if you can use it i think it's a better privacy
31:21
more privacy respecting version of google drive so like go for it um what's your top three linux distros oh fedora debian arch that's my favorites fedora is like very clearly at the top of my list are there any google and apple maps alternatives there's organic maps and magic earth um those are probably your best bet um also don't underestimate the ability to use google maps in a properly uh setup mobile browser like if you have a very locked down hardened mobile browser
31:52
you can use google maps semi-privately inside of that browser that's compartmentalized from everything else on your phone don't underestimate that option do you know any good qr could verify your apps on ios i do not uh though doesn't ios what do you mean by verifier apps um is that are you talking about 2fa if so um 2fa arrivo r-a-i-v-o best one if you're talking about just scanning qr codes i believe the camera app does that by default can you upload a proper tutorial on how to flash new android drop custom rom i think we're going to avoid flashing
32:23
tutorials going forward unless like we're 100 sure it's not going to become outdated within the first week or two that goes live and it's going to cause issues for people um by the way we did not do that on purpose we're accused of purposely trying to make it harder for people we are not we just messed up as humans do is lineage secure enough or not um you're probably going to be fine using lineage and lineage can actually improve your security because it still might give you updates that you're not otherwise getting via just the software but not the firmware but it does decrease security in other
32:54
places i think that just saying don't use lineage because of xyz security problems is a little bit of an over oversimplification just be aware of those issues and really take those into consideration when making a choice starting a nonprofit with three employees and multiple volunteers throughout the coming year do you have any suggestions before we start this spring i want to protect our volunteers from the beginning um that is definitely like not something i can get into right now um just because it's such a complicated thing um if you want more guidance we do have consulting that's probably where i push you um otherwise
33:26
uh go incognito the free version is gonna teach you a lot that you need to know we are planning on doing a business oriented version of go incognito someday i don't know when that's gonna be but that probably will be something to look forward to down the road but that's a very complex question if you really want to work one-on-one then submit a consulting form and we may be able to help you it's very crowded and i don't accept all clients ubuntu gang safest way to buy monero um i don't mind i i trust the monero technology more than i probably should
34:00
so i don't mind just buying it via normal methods and converting to monero once it's in monero it should be good to go but you're going to find some other much better ways of buying monero and i am not the best person to ask for that i don't quite know there is a great website seth simmons seth simmons has a blog and a podcast called opt out podcast and he talks a lot more about this i really recommend going through that why aren't you streaming on twitch since it's open source now i wish that's how it worked i wish dorian i have a pixel 3a in graphene os is
34:32
going to end support for it soon with the next update so should i go to it anyways or stick with stock android 12. um consider calyx os they're still supporting pixel 3a if that's if you still want to be up to date check out calaxos it's going to pretty much match stock android with security and it's going to offer some privacy benefits best for gaming um i don't know what the question is there bestie i love proton vpn what are your thoughts on proton vpn's wire guard i actually have yet to use it i've heard very good
35:02
things though from people in our community and said it's faster so i hope it's faster it's wireguard how to make newer cars don't spy on me disable those settings you're just going to have to go through whatever settings are in the car this is something that we're doing a lot of research on right now we've been doing research on it for the last several years for those who've been following our channel this whole time um yeah someone said try cal express as well and that's what i try out too um how to buy a bitcoin ethereum and honest we have videos on how to do that so i'm not going to just search up tech lore bitcoin
35:33
it should come up my windows 10 is hardened for security and privacy i play quite a few games do you think there's data mining operations i think that it's very hard to disable everything and all you can do is try your best on windows the best thing i'd recommend is compartmentalizing windows strictly for those few games you play maybe in a virtual machine or through dual booting or just a completely separate device how to buy bitcoin ethereum and honestly like i said um just search go on youtube type in teclor bitcoin and it should come up or tackler cryptocurrencies we made videos
36:03
about this check out embassyos heard it um i learned to use veracrypt from you and i've loved it ever since and now i'm having fun with cali linux on vmware congrats um keep on pushing forward that's that's really cool to hear veracrypt is something i use for everything as well against pegasus cubes or mac and which better for developer um again pegasus is not something you should be concerned about as an end user uh for a like a casual end user so i would not base an operating system decision completely based on pegasus um
36:35
what do you think of the framework laptop i don't think i've seen it that sounds familiar so i might have seen the website but don't remember how can i safely buy monero we have videos on this again with cryptocurrencies we have cryptocurrency videos that specifically talk about this is this another signal ad we're just we're honest about signal i don't know like people see that as like promoting signal it's like yeah signal is a really great messenger what do you prioritize on android a vpn or blocking trackers and apps with
37:05
something like tracker control very personal question very very personal question so i'm going to give you an example here and it's myself so for myself i don't have any non-open source apps that are running 24 7 on my android device so there's actually not a single tracker i'm aware of on my android device and my browser takes care of all of the trackers inside of my web traffic and my vpn has its own block list for basic trackers and ads so i actually have a
37:35
configuration that doesn't need any kind of service that's offered from tracker control or netguard however someone else here might have a totally different configuration where they're relying on social media applications and very invasive applications and then you might have to start thinking about maybe tracker control is a little bit more useful for me than just hiding my ip address it's going to totally depend on who you are and it's just very hard to make a blatant recommendation like that um thoughts on briar great not for
38:06
everyone only for android users and also for android users it's it's definitely a lot more intense um we've covered briar in our messenger comparison as well as our top five favorite messengers video and also we've done a full briar review yeah i forgot about that so just type in tecla briar we made a whole video about briar they're called super chats thank you is discord safe generally no but um that also depends on like what your level of safety is you guys are going to hear that a lot today it's going to depend
38:38
right let's see noob all right i i i was just called a new thank you i don't know um z cash first monero i like monero better but they both have their place best browser for mobile i'm not even gonna go there um i'm not even gonna go there uh my parents insist on using facebook live do you know of any other livestream service that is absolute garbage facebook that is not apps i assume you may not um youtube might be better than facebook by
39:10
your definition um there's twitch i don't know if that's any better uh there's not many great live streaming services but i think peertube has live streaming now just throwing that out there and i believe odyssey also has live streaming now so we actually post all of our content on both odyssey and peertube so if you want to see what the videos look like there we have a live stream there but we have posted videos there one of the most underrated channels on youtube thank you share it around that would help a lot so thank you any thoughts on discord integrating crypto wallet i haven't looked into it yet so i don't want to comment on it can you
39:42
elaborate why linux doesn't work for tech lore yeah so we actually tried to make linux work for about like over a year and we did use linux for our workflow for over a year and we were using davinci resolve and davinci resolve is first off has very crappy linux support um you can get it to work it's based on centos though so you can really unless you're on r unless you're on arch and you use the r um it's kind of if 50 50 on how well resolve works on linux now the big thing for us is
40:13
we ended up i ended up buying resolve studio for myself and resolve studio is like 300 bucks and it's officially supported by davinci resolve and it's something that i want consistent support for we have to make content we have deadlines we have things to do and it's important that we have support to do that so i'm only going to stick to a formally supported operating system for the editor that we're completely dependent on and so really my options were sent os for linux or something like windows or mac os
40:45
um now that's not it though because mac os actually in many ways fits our threat model better than linux would especially from a security point of view and we're able to do things that we can't do on linux with mac os and this isn't something i can elaborate too much on without giving up too much information about ourselves but long story short that's the main reason the other big reason is we use affinity photo as our photo suite and affinity photo does not have support for linux in really any capacity that we were able to explore this was actually like a year-long journey though we were
41:17
using linux for our workflow for a long time but that was using a windows virtual machine with kvm and gpu passthrough and it was a pain in the ass that's all i'm going to say it was taking away time that i could have been put putting into content for all of you and it just wasn't something i could justify doing do you recommend hosts for static websites from the research i've done in general consensus is anything but cloud fair pages i don't have much information on this not a good person to ask why is chrome being called a huge security i already answered that one lol
41:46
like the bridge is tore good on android um i wouldn't rely on it for like the absolute greatest amount of anonymity but yes tor is good on android will you ever talk about the intel management engine um i might the problem is so much of that is based on speculation and not like genuine evidence of anything and we try to avoid things like that um just because there's so little we like a lot of our content is based on genuine research and so it's very hard for us to talk about things in a way that is um at the standard we want to talk about it without
42:18
i guess getting to uh tin foil hat and but like i'm not saying these aren't concerns i'm just saying it's very hard to cover them in a way that we're able to cover them like our other content i don't i don't have thoughts about cloudflare if it's from google then it's privacy risk going to head out for the night have a good rest of the stream thanks prof um thoughts on nfts should i buy it or not i'm not here for investment advice um we have not done nft i haven't done much research into it i'm kind of following it here and there not a good person to ask any good javascript blockers no
42:50
script yeah no script so if i'm a gamer and i have a work life played with google should i use a separate device you can you can also use a virtual machine or you can dual boot you have several options and you can really explore all of them if you know i'm a college student i realize in microsoft services should i switch to linux if you can i would try out libreoffice or only office i tried out only office recently and i'm like why didn't i use this before it's so much better than libreoffice um you can also just try using both
43:22
um there's no harm in trying both thoughts on zcash not many i like manera better that's all i'll say excuse me any recommendation for how to block ads and trackers system-wide on linux you can set up a host file some way i have not done this not a good person to ask i know a lot of people do use um crap i'm blanking on the name uh pie holes for things like this but again i haven't done this so i can't really comment on it too much how good is pia vpn man i'm
43:52
just realizing now that this other scene i set up is really just for all the vpn questions teclar.tech go to vpn toolkit go to vpn chart make your own decisions i'm not here to give strict advice on what the best vpn is for you without knowing who you are um and i should now go back to boo um i'm at the moment i'm paranoid about privacy do you have advice for someone who is having actual anxiety yeah um we made a video recently about the dark side of privacy so if you just type in
44:24
tech lore dark side of privacy um that's gonna be our recent advice that came out like a week and a half ago and it's about that right um ever gonna cover videos more focused on newbies learning how to self-host yes uh keep an eye out for the videos already uploaded and scheduled for november 19th if you're a patron you already got all of our but you already know what the video is because we post all our videos and what they're going to be what if you use the tik-tok app without a user account um i would still assume it's tracking everything about you
44:55
i've heard protons mailing service is pretty good i personally like it greetings tech learn community hello switch to linux you can check out switch to linux chat switch to linux's channel um he posts some good content over there as well um show is using tails plus tor plus encrypted usb enough to hide minecraft i shouldn't have shown it i didn't i just assumed it was a genuine question so you got me there hey was wondering if you had tried any decentralized you know it might be a genuine question though
45:26
just using tor would be fine for this use case and i'm going to simplify it if your goal is to hide internet traffic from a network using a vpn or using tor is actually more than enough and you don't need to do all of this i was wondering if you had tried any decentralized vpns i have not they actually email us all the time which for me is kind of a red flag i don't know if mysterium has but i've received so many emails from decentralized vpns claiming to be the next big thing um it gives me very like marketing scam vibes but it doesn't necessarily mean they are i'm just telling you like
45:57
what i've noticed um there's been a recurring pattern with people who constantly spam us with their products and what it the what ends up happening like six months from then um just putting that out there it is bad ops like to use the same vpn multiple devices i don't know if you're responding or asking how to choose between debbie and fedora arch try them all um saving poor master roll the dice the best way to store home movies and picks um next cloud like off cloud services i mean next cloud is the cloud but it's kind of your
46:30
own cloud um otherwise you're kind of stuck with like a local hard drive solution which is incredibly inconvenient and terrible and i'm telling you that because i do it henry may i have your autograph i'll even donate for it if so how do i obtain it i feel like it's a privacy risk um that's not something i'm formally offering and i'd be incredibly inconvenient so i apologize that's not something i can make happen as of today but i'll keep it in mind if that becomes a something that people show interest in your latest videos about vpns is how to
47:02
choose a good vpn you're still standing by those choices which video yes more or less we still have content that i stand by we actually have a change log for a content you can find on github that allows us to make like updates to things we go hey this video is not outdated here is why we think it is outdated so it's kind of a learning experience um best phone for privacy and safest for payment it's gonna it's really going to depend that's too too simple not too simple but there's just not enough context to that question
47:32
can you suggest some good open source apps from android um i i don't know man uh there's a lot of good ones just i reckon okay i recommend downloading the f droid app store and just going through all of those there's an explore section it's wonderful how would you address privacy issues of teenagers 12 to 17. um i don't know make youtube videos about it a large part of our demographic i think is between 16 and 26 and so um making
48:05
content trying to um use the tools that they're using is probably a really good way to connect with them um thoughts on michael basil any chance of a team up um yeah michael basil is great there's been some discussions and some things happen and what and i can't get too far into it um but there has been a communication channel opened with him and i think what he does is great i think you should check out his podcast if uh if you want i think he makes really good content um snapchat is vulnerable exactly okay how are you henry i'm doing
48:36
well i'm doing really well um i i i yeah i'm doing well um no full disc encryption will not protect against ransomware generally not yeah so this man okay so there's two things i'm actually going to address this question with two things you mentioned in your pine phone video that you don't use a computer what are you using for making videos did you mean only work computer yes so this is where people really and like i'm gonna sound like a conceited right now but i'm kind of like one step above where you guys
49:18
think so a lot of something i say is i don't have a google account and people are like no you're on youtube so you have a google account that's like no like this is actually like a completely compromised google account for a business that's completely separated from myself i do not have a google account i am just a person under tech lore and everything is established that way from the ground up and it's not easy to do whatsoever so that is that answer so i do have a work computer and it's impossible for me to access anything personal on a work computer which is where i'm doing the
49:49
stream from right now so yes that is what i mean by that it is i don't have a personal computer i just don't i have a personal phone and that's it that's the only place i'm able to access any of my accounts and it's the only place i can access anything i do day to day for fitness tracker you mentioned garmin forward 245 do you need to set it up by creating an account um no so if you buy a garmin to 4runner 245 you're going to get it out of the box and you're going to boot it up and it already works out of the box you don't even have to connect it to a phone or anything it'll do basic fitness tracking just right out
50:20
of the box just like that you will lose out on some features though we talk about that more in our fitness tracking video what do you use to hide your location i just don't turn on gps and i use a vpn or tour depending on the device to hide my ip address those are really the two places you should you mainly are going to worry about with your location how can i know information about me has been breached it's going to depend on what you're looking for web searches are normally a really good place to start just typing in your basic information
50:51
there's people searching websites you can do have i been pwned for your emails yeah um damn dude you're the mvp for taking the time i love seeing education pricing you spread with passion yeah yeah no um i'm probably not gonna do this very often so take advantage of this this is incredibly exhausting to do so um i hope you enjoy it i have so many questions i can't believe i just saw you're doing this don't ask too many please go for it though is there a way to be sure that company did delete your data no um what do you think about tesla privacy
51:21
it's not good um but but and here's what i'll say to that i think tesla is kind of like the apple of of like privacy where they're not private against themselves but i do think they're private against other people so i think what we're going to start see what we're going to start to see with tesla is very good security of their data very good control of the data from third parties but not from themselves and that's what we see with apple apple is very good about third-party privacy protections but not necessarily from themselves so it's an overwhelming amount of trust to
51:52
put in a single party those are my thoughts on apple for the most part and those are my thoughts on where i think tesla's heading as of right now though tesla really still is in its infancy in my opinion and um so it's kind of hard to make that assessment because i think it's kind of changing every day open source line i've never heard a line so i'm not going to comment on it have you reviewed the firewall of gold i have not never heard of it what do you think about the standard unix password manager pass um i think it's a little too bare bones to
52:26
recommend as like a password manager in my opinion but if it works for you then go off it's probably it's a great service are there any good ways to protect having my phone number um yeah so you're going to have to use something like my sudo or hushed i only recommend hush on custom roms by the way that's it hushed is a terrible app awful hate it um so my sudo is kind of the general recommendation for people um there's also some other services but generally speaking that's the main like phone number aliasing service do you use hackintosh i do not
52:59
um is morning brew safe privacy-wise never heard of it what do you think about the home privacy concerns regarding smart home devices they're not good uh we talk about these pretty much every week on surveillance support if you want more of our thoughts on that i don't really support brace treatment of their community but i still like chromium so it's ungoogled chromium a pick yeah or um you can use basic chromium if you disable some of the stuff or you can use ungoogled chromium there's also vivaldi but it's source available and not technically open source but it is source available um those are pretty much your main options if you enjoy chromium
53:33
you better be using linux um let's just say there's certain things in my life that do rely on linux but as for the device i'm streaming we already talked about this earlier the device i'm streaming on right now is not using linux how can you use google authenticator on windows 10. i read about wenoth last night um we have a 2fa guide that will answer all of your questions so just type in totp tech lore you will have more than enough information to answer this question what do you think about ad guard is um i have not used ad guard a student of the
54:05
most secure email provider um doesn't encrypt subject lines so yeah um they so to note it does encrypt the subject lines protonmail does not um and both of them offer end-to-end encryption to external contacts with a self-assigned password that you then share via a different communication protocol they're both secure in their own rights and what they advertise to do which is somewhat improve on email so the most secure email provider i don't know about that but yes this is
54:37
one advantage to the nota has over protonmail but i don't know if i'd go out to say that this is the most secure email provider i don't think i'm going to say that with anything actually it's just very hard to oversimplify things like that how can i tell my friends and family when i hang out with them not to post pictures of me um just ask them be like hey um i really prefer not to have my face posted online can you just ask me before you post it just have it like can you ask me you know when they ask you just say no and then if they don't ask you that's a serious discussion discussion you have with them be like hey boundaries besties please don't post my
55:08
photo i asked you very clearly what do you think of brave browser we had a you know what that's not fair because that was supposed to be an objective comparison i like brave um that's all i'll say i like brave i like firefox i like most browsers they're good for different things and i think brave is something i really enjoy for just being an out of the box solution thanks trent um and thank you i just want my family to have family photos and videos i really miss burning cds and movie makers hard drives it is i suppose i think you're responding to the question about the
55:40
cloud storage um and i'm glad that was useful for you yeah hard drives are kind of the way to go if if you're looking to really avoid everything cloud related um where was i where are we oh my goodness there are so many comments i was planning on being here for an hour and it's already been almost an hour oh my goodness okay working at max okay i'm going to try to go even faster is custom rom safer than stock roms um some of them are i would say if you're sticking with lineage cal xos and a
56:24
certain other rom then yes most likely how to stop telemetry data collection and ubuntu i believe it's just a basic uh toggle when you set it up uh ubuntu hate in my opinion is very overrated um what are good android emulators for privacy is there a service that shows you all the websites that you sign up with a particular email um not that i know of not that i know of um what's the best free antivirus um if you're talking about windows windows defender it's out of the box it's already integrated with microsoft just use it would you recommend an um never heard of it
56:56
way droid um never heard of it what's your best budget phone recommendation for whatever the cheap there's like four device options or like five just get the cheapest one then um though do keep in mind um how long it's going to be supported for software updates um so you should look at it from a value perspective and not just a cheap perspective does ios 2fa apps let you regain the base totp code rivo rivarivo i've said riva like three times so far in this live stream that is our recommendation rival are you a programmer i know very basic
57:28
programming i do know basic python i do know basic web development and that's about it um so no i don't consider myself a programmer but i do know basic information which console you're planning you can do oh you're not talking to me okay please answer this question can't get my info online does airplane mode on laptop stop all incoming and outgoing signals wait wi-fi bluetooth i know airplane was useless on a phone it is not useless on a phone there was a very misleading article going around about this on most operating systems when you turn on airplane mode and you make sure it's off in the settings wi-fi and bluetooth it
57:59
is in fact off um and as for your laptop it's the same deal if it's off it's most likely off um why isn't monero popular with all the increasing government spying are there any superior alternatives not that i know of that i can comfortably recommend people um but monero isn't popular honestly most cryptocurrencies aren't very popular when you really zoom out and see like can you go to the store and use it because for most of you the answer to that's probably no so i really think that um cryptocurrencies need to move to a more mainstream um audience in the way that like you can
58:29
actually pay for something at a store with it and that's why um i guess trying to do your best and really uh bringing these technologies to the forefront of your life is a good thing to do twitter privacy settings yes they exist just go in there and turn off what you need to turn off there's nothing to just read the twitter docs for that i might skip some questions here and there i'm sorry people there's just so many um paranoia um yeah so look up a recent video we did we did tech lore deep the dark side of privacy um it really talks
59:00
about some of the mental side of things there i'm a recent subscriber i'm on linux in the process many things totally um and i'm glad to have you on here is there a way to be private and newer cars very hard too this is something that we're again we're doing research on and we'll likely make content about it in the future what are your thoughts on that in my opinion i don't like them in brave because it's too unpredictable and the value changes too much compared to normal ads i think the idea and what they're trying to tackle is very important i think the ad industry just needs a serious revamp and that's what bat's trying to do so i think it's really necessary what they're trying to
59:31
do i don't know if their implementation's going to be the best one though and i i just don't know those are my thoughts on it just wanted to say thank you totally and thanks for tuning in um i i've seen you in our communities so nice to see you on here too um this intel an actual threat again i mentioned this earlier there isn't enough concrete evidence and research for me to actually come forward and say yes these are genuine um security and privacy threats so those are my thoughts on it and i'm
01:00:01
still following this we might make content on it in the future if we're able to gather enough research on it signal for sms and otps i don't know what that question is i really appreciate it hapa called um i have not i will check it out though how do you spoof your user agent on mozilla um there are some extensions that do that but i'd ask you why you're doing that samsung knocks any good um maybe if you're in the samsung ecosystem and you want to ensure whatever security features they have are there then sure
01:00:32
um that's it's a very like what do you mean it's good is it good for what um well you do it once you're there's no going back um if i could go back in time i wouldn't have shown my face though but we're going to keep pass we have a video bit order and verse key pass tech lower bit word and versus key pass check it out um it's going to depend on who you are um how concerned would you be with having a password manager browser extension installed on a company laptop um it sounds like you don't have them separated so i would make sure that
01:01:04
whatever you use for work and personal are separate and that goes for pretty much everything absolutely not sorry harold yeah if that fits your threat model and if you listen to michael basil you're going to hear that he's going to talk about threat models a lot and um so if you're saying your threat model doesn't call for it then you might put your time and do other things like that's the way i look at it like in privacy and security in this whole journey that you're going to go through
01:01:41
you need to pace yourself you need to prioritize what's important not waste time on the little one percent improvements focus on the big things really pace yourself accordingly that's how i look at things because you have limited time and energy and the goals is to not make privacy and security a full-time job so that's how i look at it if you're just doing things for the sake of doing things i'd really ask you to step back and really focus focus on what you want to do all right i'm going to skip down to the people who donated um someone just said thanks thank you for
01:02:11
tuning in um trent asks what's your opinion on hardware security tokens like the yuba key and can you please do a video on these options in the pros and cons in the future we are currently working on that in fact there is a yuba key currently connected to the computer i'm using to live stream um it's going to be likely a very similar format to the totp guide that we released a few weeks ago oh man i was like a couple months ago my time time is just like nothing right now um let's go back to where i was did you see the robin hood social
01:02:54
engineered league i sure did and that's definitely going to be in surveillance support delete in there i'm going to be very like strategic with the questions i get back to now not this one is indeed worth it for job searching we're actually developing a job searching video right now so that's something you should see in the next several weeks it takes weeks to do our content people um i have to say that no i'm not attacking you i'm just saying that in general because some people are like oh you said you were going to do a video
01:03:40
why isn't it done yet and it's like we said we were going to make the video like three days ago like a lot of our content takes literally weeks to produce like come on give us a break can you bring back your youtube intro from earlier this year i miss it no we moved on is saving your passwords on a document or text file convenient i'd argue no i'd argue using a password manager is more convenient than like an encrypted document in my opinion who edits the videos so we this is a good question so we have about
01:04:10
eight videos right now at our current rate we do about eight videos a month four of them are surveillance reports and four of them are tech lore videos surveillance supports are currently split 50 50 between me and nathan so nathan edits one week i edit the next week so i edit two videos nathan edits two videos and then as for the four tech lore videos um two of them are done by myself and two are done by tori who is our part-time editor you can find information about her on our website and in the about section that's right you guys ready you guys are ready oh
01:04:41
oh look at that i prepped to show you things so if you go to about um you're going to find information about our team members so tori does two of our videos every month right now um so that is it so i edit four videos a month tori two nathan two and lately though i have been really working on our uh trying to get two more videos out per month so those are done by me which means i'm now doing six videos a month tori two and nathan two and that's currently what
01:05:12
we're working towards and that's currently what the rate i'm going at right now um any apps or services you use or like you haven't covered yet and would recommend to others that's i'd have to think about that i don't want to um [Music] thoughts on is whatsapp's still okay i would say no i'd really try hard to move them to signal whatsapp has a lot of issues it does have end to end encryption and that's really like the end of the pros for whatsapp are you aware of how easy it is to hack yahoo right now thoughts on hidden
01:05:43
beacons thoughts on cubes yes threat model if you're asking does it depend on your threat model the answer is almost 99 of the times yes um i'd say yes just for that question i would say yes you don't know what your college campus is doing with the internet traffic and i would do whatever you can to hide that from them [Music] yes it will still be up how do you get into privacy security well i started making vpn content so i
01:06:21
was interested in vpns from the get-go there's a long story about how that happened as well that i'm not going to get into um but long story short that naturally that naturally led me into the privacy security discussion and i read kevin mitnick's art of invisibility and i just kind of fell in love with it i've never like looked at things that way before how long do you take to respond to your consultation requests um it depends we aim for two days sometimes it's longer than that though we get a lot of requests and i can only take so many clients so it's very restricted we actually turn down a lot more clients
01:06:52
than we accept unfortunately i wish it wasn't like that [Music] can i contribute some merch designs you can use it if it's good um sure uh that's probably like a little challenging for us nothing stopping you from using our web form people already do that and ask so many questions that we don't it says on the web form people this isn't for general support yet 90 of the emails that are sent are for general support and i'm like people read please to expand into the security realm um we
01:07:32
may um i no comments yet on that it's something that like i'm always thinking about we may that's all that's all i'll say um it's not out yet um though i will tell you i am likely picking up a pixel 6 on black friday so [Music] man i responded to that so long ago really appreciate it trent thank you no maybe because i am yeah yeah it's a good site good project terms of service didn't read really great
01:08:37
project lulu's great as well i can recommend lulu on mac os very fantastic program extremely shitty and should never have happened and uh reflects um other things they've done but you should make your own conclusion on that i already responded to this by the way i'm not just ignoring it um i the first place i would start is um honestly like devices make things so much easier for this if you can get separate devices for your work life and your leisure life there's not only privacy and security perks to this but
01:09:23
also like mental perks to it the fact that you can shut down a work computer and be done with work for the day is a feeling that i cannot recommend more um so that's something i'd really just it's a good get started point because once you start thinking about okay i have to find a device okay um what information do i need to get the device what information do i need to set up the device okay what programs am i gonna going to install the device is a great segue into what you need to do i've watched the whole incognito series love it but i'm becoming so paranoid about security that it's semi-prevented me from working on my pc check out a recent
01:09:53
video we did a tech lore dark side of privacy just type it into youtube it should come up it talks a little bit more about the mental side of things oh it's just hush hush is horrible to use if you've used it you probably know what i'm talking about it's just so bad like um the app just crashes um the dialer just i have so many complaints with hush i should probably just write like a document about it and also it's just littered with trackers it's not a great app how can i contribute to projects like
01:10:36
calyx os um i'd recommend reaching out to each project individually because every project has its own unique needs and also um a lot of projects will help you along depending what the project is so calaxos actually um i was comp i was jokingly half jokingly complaining because like a year ago they didn't used to have round icons and around icons on android are completely superior to squirkle and rectangular icons and all that other stuff um and so i was like hey when are circle icons gonna come and then the main calyx dev was like why not here
01:11:07
here's how you do it so he sent me instructions and there was still some figuring out i had to do but he still like really helped me along with the process and that was technically like my first contribution to an open source project that wasn't something of my own um and so it felt really good and i think that really just like asking around you're gonna find some really nice developers here and there that are going to really help you along that was a really positive experience i had with them totally i'm glad you like our content what's the best alias service for email i like simple login but there's also a on addy
01:11:48
how anonymous is xmpp depends how you use it i would not expect it to be anonymous from the person who owns the server um but it is anonymous in the sense that you can set it up very easily with no information so it depends we have a messenger comparison by the way like really in-depth that covers xmpp matrix signal briar a session all these things i'd recommend checking out that video another vpn question take a drink uh would you trust search shark as a vpn i get to show this off again oh my gosh
01:12:26
if you go to our website and you go to resort or vpn toolkit vpn chart um you're going to find this awesome chart and you're going to be like man is surf shark trusted let's compare it to like ivpn and click the compare button and we're going to go through and see depending on these questions if it works for me that's how i'd answer that question for you but i will say generally speaking there are better services from a privacy uh perspective do you respond to all your consulting requests for the most part yes unless there's something like very clearly wrong we have had a couple
01:12:57
clients who didn't put in their email it's like i can't contact you friend um but yes we respond to most of them but i will say most of them are unfortunately denials just because we really have to be restrictive because there's so limited time um i already mentioned that we're going to do a video very similar to the totp guide about yubikeys oh no i hate when it does that oh yeah so you okay okay yeah i answered this already oh i'm almost caught up i'm almost caught up everyone
01:13:37
gotta give myself a pet on the back um yes i like um if if you're on a samsung device then sure use it but it's not like something that i would really recommend if you're gonna use to a custom rom not even just such a complex question um anything's possible you can pretty much bridge everything yourself manually um that's that that's something we have a bridge set up in our communities that does not use element
01:14:36
one so there's always an option to do it yourself um if you can get a good deal why not as long as you like factory reset it um you should be good to go unless your threat model uh takes into consideration a possibly compromised device but for the most part you should be fine yeah totally i'm glad you like it and i hope you continue watching surveying support um check out go incognito 2.0 3.4 check out go incognito 3.4 it talks about different techniques you can
01:15:12
use to make your password manager a little bit safer are you worried about quantum computers i am not qualified to answer that question i do think that it's not the end of the world and we're going to figure something out before it's an actual problem i run a close source i have not but i am likely buying it soon not much you can do unfortunately that's why um establishing aliases from the ground up is very important because it allows you to really easily deal with this if you didn't you're kind of screwed unless you move to new emails
01:15:54
totally um thank you for being a patron for us for so long mitchell's been one of our patrons for so long and you'll see him in the bottom of the outro of our videos continually so like join our patreon if you want to do that um i think there's it's only for certain tiers i think it's our two highest tiers but you can be in the outro of every single one of our videos for the end of time um pretty cool perk that mitchell has been a part of for a while i'll get to you i see it i'm gonna get to you it's just i'm so close um i never used it actually in our
01:16:45
review i'm pretty certain i said it this isn't something i'm going to use but i think that there's definitely a demographic for people who could benefit from jumbo so i would check out our review if you want to get more information about that it's worth to use youtube i do because it took us so long to do and people don't use it enough so i'm going to continue to shill it until people like learn to use it what is your opinion i've answered samsung knox so many times now um send more in so he can never leave try that and i'll just leave i do not have to stay here you look so
01:17:20
sad when talking about vpns just look at the guy [Laughter] um sure we've already made a video that compares three men to signal so check out our messenger comparison you should consider to hire more people your enterprise is growing yeah um easier said than done that's one of the reasons why we're getting sponsors uh it would allow us to uh hopefully get more people down the road but we can't just make money come up out of thin air we have an android security and privacy guide that's where i'd go it covers really almost everything you need to know about privacy and security from the
01:18:05
ground up so seriously go check out type in teclor android security and privacy guide extremely extensive stuff you're going to learn a lot that's what you can do with phones there's a lot you can do on phones without a custom rom and that guide proves it um it's very hard to do for a lot of people even for myself i don't access many sites that are relying on javascript and it's like like it's hard is okay so i'm going to get back to this comment is there any way to set up 2fa for logging into a windows machine
01:18:37
thinking if my password is compromised it will add another layer of security so yes with yubikey and i don't know about other keys yet i've only used the yubikey there is a way to set it up to be required to log into your device so that is a thing i believe it works with mac os i cannot confirm on linux yet because i haven't tested it myself but i'm sure there's a way to make it work on linux too um so yes i would look at docs and contact support for that specifically though that might be something we make a video on down the road but no no promises so everything's oh um i will get back to you i don't know
01:19:09
if this is a large donation but either way thank you for the donation um that's so awesome surveillance reports are the only thing that happened to my mondays see for for me the gold's sundays they're supposed to be uploaded sundays but sometimes they happen on mondays but if it's a different time zone then yeah do you intend to preserve your body for future generations you guys are so interesting i use the vpn chart and have pointed some friends to it that's what i like to hear thank you thank you spread the word
01:19:48
um yeah amazon's actually like really easy to use with private information so you can set up an amazon with just an email so you can use any email you can ship to an amazon locker and you can just go to your store and get an amazon gift card boom you're solid that's it they do sometimes require a phone number and you can use something like mysudo for that it's very straightforward you could use a po box but like amazon use amazon lockers just pick it up [Music]
01:20:27
totally man really glad you like it um i think it depends on your configuration that's kind of a loaded question without like getting too much into what is on that device and what you're trying to keep safe but generally speaking as long as that if signals a personal thing that you're putting on your work computer i would caution you from doing that if it's a signal only account then i'd say why not what's up henry can you share your thoughts on the page dig deeper like okay i'm i'm sorry to burst your bubble here but really anything not anything but like ninety-five percent of
01:21:05
what i've seen that's hosted on the ossities is like kind of bs so that's what i would say um i think this specific site i've seen one or two points but there's a lot of unverified claims there's a lot of points that are definitely dramaticized and there's just a lot of things that i don't necessarily agree with that aren't necessarily objective either not that we're always objective i'm not trying to say that but that's kind of you're asking for my thoughts and those are my thoughts um it's something i pretty much steer clear of most things with neocities i haven't
01:21:35
seen many trustworthy sources come from there personally i know it's just a host and anyone can post there i just haven't seen much that's like very legit from there myself um why do people it's a great question you know what i like that question why do people combine vpn and tour i think because they um they think it's safer right more is better if i combine a vpn and tour it must be better it isn't always better in fact a lot of times it isn't depending if whether or not you know what you're doing so um yeah it's a good question to ask i think
01:22:08
we need to ask that question more yep thank you trent rip henry too many questions i'm actually almost caught up look at this so you guys aren't going quick in the dell please do not challenge me on that you keep saying this i have not look into the deeper network i shall look into it i store them on samsung notes it's suggested on privacy notes which has more features we just made a video on private note taking options go check that out tech lore private note-taking options is the search term
01:22:44
what do you think about crispr technology and the ethics that's such an interesting question um definitely like not what i want to talk about tonight though or else i'm just going to be talking about that for like half an hour but very cool question i recommend everyone looks into crispr and reads about it it's very interesting stuff ah david dabrick okay i'm going to look and if it's pg which i think it is i am going to turn it to my super handy dandy window that i set up before i
01:23:19
started let's see if you are correct all right i don't agree but i'm going to show you what i see i guess a little bit yeah like i'm looking at that top right one a little bit i think the hair that's about it checks out that checks out okay valid valid opinion yes absolutely i use it for everything love it literally we like half our work just like wouldn't be done if it wasn't
01:24:00
for that calyx hotspot i use it everywhere i go i love it in fact i'm probably going to be ditching my home isp very shortly to only use the calex hotspot for everything love it cannot recommend the cod since the two hotspots enough um why give google more money with a pixel phone and not a different android phone because it's uh your rom options that have the privacy and security standards that are going to be found on the pixel just don't exist if you're going to use a rom with privacy and security at the forefront of it which is calaxos and a certain other rom you're going to have to get a google
01:24:31
phone that's just the reality um there are there is a neuron that we saw that i don't want to mention yet because i haven't done enough research on it but there is another one that has very similar device compatibility to lineage os with some better security that's something i'll update you guys on as i look more into it oh my gosh is oh we got another one is nord a good vpn we're gonna you guys know what's coming those of you who have been here know what's coming if you
01:25:09
go to techlore.tech and you go to vpn toolkit and you click vpn chart you're gonna find this wonderful chart that i've never talked about before you can click up to three vpns and click compare and you can see if a vpn is good for you super cool super not gonna mention it again vibes um i learned digital minimalism from tech lore and i love it less is more yes yes man if there's like two things if i didn't make um if i wasn't so passionate
01:25:50
about privacy i would definitely have a youtube channel about either running i love running or digital minimalism just that um i spend like a large part of my energy and my days just focusing on digital minimalism and it's just so nice that it naturally leads into privacy because less is generally more but yeah love it can't recommend it enough um quick i sent a lot of questions we do a little trolling unbelievable unbelievable stop skipping
01:26:21
is there a way to purchase a mobile hotspot without being tracked calyx os or no calyx institute um you can buy it with some cryptocurrencies and you can ship it to like maybe a private address that you have they also do i don't know if they still do this but i know they showed up to some conferences and you can buy it their irl i'm pretty certain i can't use privacy.com need alternative please that's really i think abine a b i n e a bind has a service called blur which also has disposable debit cards as
01:26:51
well as my sudo my pseudo also has disposable debit cards but i think all three of those options are us only if i'm not mistaken so if the reason why you can't use pricing.com is because it's only u.s excuse me that's still going to be an option or that's still going to be an issue yes we do want to make raspberry pi constant someday so that will happen someday totally i'm glad signal works well for you what all right thank you for the donation and let's get to your question what is the biggest mistake you see privacy noobs making when trying to be more private or trying to be more
01:27:30
anonymous online things that they might think is private but really not so okay for the easy question there just if i'm ignoring the second half of your question the biggest mistake is doing way too much way too quickly like way too much um it's very easy to go into the rabbit hole like very quickly and it's a very like tempting thing to do here's why it's not a good idea one you're gonna burn yourself out pacing is super important so that's step one like you do not want
01:28:02
to burn out in this because in my opinion privacy is a lifelong thing it's not something that you spend a month on you get it to a point you want to and then you just leave and forget it it's something that you just slowly figure out over time and that's something that i wish we really stressed more in the privacy community it's like you're not going to figure this out overnight and if you try to do that you're going to bring yourself out you're going to make mistakes you're going to do things that aren't smart and you're going to do things are going to waste your time and energy and it's all it's going to do is it might have you relapse we've seen several people in our communities who go all out for a week and then they just
01:28:33
say screw it i'm going to go back to pretty much everything i was doing because like i did so much and i feel like i still wouldn't do enough and that's why i think really having a long-term view and really looking at it from a um just a step back lens really can help sometimes so that's the biggest mistake i see noobs making as for like more specific things which is kind of the second half things that they might think is private but really not um vpns are very easy thing to target i think that like vpns have a wonderful place in the pricing security toolkit but they definitely are not like all-in-one solutions that they're
01:29:05
marketed to be something else though is i really think that um you know i'm just gonna leave it there i think it's that i think that there's a lot of people that think of vpn will take care of a lot of things when really i would look at it as really just hiding your ip address from websites you visit which is very hard to do without tor and also protecting your up traffic from your internet service provider and when i say protect i mean more so transferring the trust from your internet service provider to your vpn provider oh [Music]
01:29:40
do you still like weavy pen you guys know it's coming oh vpn chart tackler.tech [Laughter] though i will say the chart isn't based on what i like and dislike that's just based on a protocol as for if i like we vpn i think it's fine um i don't love it i don't hate it that's just my personal take i haven't heard of it so no no thoughts is windows defender good enough yes yeah i don't know have you guys noticed i feel like we should make a vpn chart
01:30:21
for our website what do you think um yeah you should ask for sources on things like this just fyi um no unless the it's already built into the program um you can try looking for third-party tools online sometimes you'll get lucky but generally speaking no um that's gonna depend on what you need i don't think windows 11 is going to be any better or worse for your pricing than windows 10 for the most part if you're already on windows just do what you need to do i would recommend checking out our windows 10 well i guess it might be advertised as windows 10 but it's probably going to
01:30:57
apply to windows 11 as well check out our windows privacy and security guide just type in teclor windows privacy on youtube and you'll see it come up it really dives into everything you can do on windows it can again check out our recent video the dark side of privacy it really talks about the mental side of things um nothing that brave has done that i've seen has actually impacted user pricing privacy and security as for the threat model then yes that's different question altogether like does brave fit your threat model and i think that for some
01:31:40
people does for some people doesn't really just depends um what's your opinion on smart dns i haven't used smart dns providers very much so i love your content thank you for it's totally nick i'm glad i exist too sometimes sometimes my android vendor hasn't shipped the update yes what are the cases what is mobile hotspot it's not really inherently any better it's just um you can buy it right more privately and also it's just more portable so for me it's having one less device in what
01:32:12
one less account because i don't have to have a router and um rather than like two people getting my internet traffic i can just centralize it to one place that i can control [Music] custom rom what kind how can i trust what you say on your channel um don't don't like fact check everything we say and this goes for every youtube channel um i wish people did that more often though and we do get a lot of kickback and i think we do a good job of addressing all those things but don't take any single person's word as fact and that includes us we say this all the
01:32:49
time and we do try to be as objective as possible we really try our best to like really focus on like evidence and research because privacy is such a rabbit hole that we have to set some kind of boundaries we have to say okay there is evidence of this we can't just say this could happen this could happen that can happen that can also happen so how do we address all these theoretical solutions and problems um at some point we have to draw a line or else you're just going to be up day and night talking about this and that's kind of the focus we have we
01:33:19
like to have a very objective approach to things um and that actually gets a lot of kickback because people are like wow you're saying that this is safe because there's no evidence of them doing anything wrong and it's like yeah that's exactly it so that's what i have to say that i don't think you should trust us i think that you should fact check everything you say and make your own judgment i'm not going to tell you who to trust just learn about my pseudo tonight thanks henry most features are bill and canada great yeah i hope you like it a vpn chart sounds like a neat idea and maybe a scene with a browser window yeah
01:33:51
yeah i agree fedora fedora i like fedora that's an overwhelming like recommendation there's other distros too but like fedora's great [Music] state planning look into trusts and find an attorney to talk about this it's kind of a fun rabbit hole to go into what was the worst thing people called you just because you want honestly i've had really good reception um i don't know if it's because like i do well with
01:34:36
handling my privacy discussions in real life or because um i don't know i haven't had many issues about with this personally so i can't comment on it if only there was a tecla vpn show i know what's your opinion on libre boot i would probably use core boot myself over libre boot that's all i'd say about it but check out both see what you like what os is your daily driver i don't have a personal computer so i talked about this earlier if you want to rewind and watch earlier parts of the stream you elaborate on your discord matrix
01:35:14
bridge um so the way this works so and i'm going to totally um shill our communities so we have a discord and a matrix community matrix is an open source federated community discord is just discord um so we have a bridge so when you join our discord community you're going to see people labeled as bots they have their own profile picture they have their own usernames but they're all going to show is coming from the same user and that's because there's a bridge that's essentially linking all the messages between both communities so you're able to communicate
01:35:47
via like one all right here's how i like to picture it um i'm gonna use the pine phone here pine phone i'm gonna use the pine phone here as like the community you can communicate to the community with discord and matrix and you can view it's like read and write access to the central entity so that's how i like to think about it um you can join matrix or discord and interact and see the same exact thing that's how it works so you can use matrix and interact with all our discord members that's kind of
01:36:17
our way to try to migrate people away from discord i've been spreading the last hour and a half trying to buy monero to send to you that's how much you rock check your wallet thank you um we do have our monero address down in the description if you want to support monero if you want to support us with monero we receive a lot of monero donations so that's really awesome so thanks you guys ah do you find eos kindness sus um not really to be honest they have some issues in my opinion but i don't think they're sus
01:36:48
they seem legit have you searched one of your friends oh yeah um i don't do that like out of nowhere i don't just text people and go hey by the way here's your address online but a lot of times i'll ask them do you want me to do this and then they'll go yes not a lot it's happened once or twice what's your opinion on libre and open um i don't know what you're asking what's your favorite video you've made so far oh that's a great question i've never thought of that before
01:37:27
let me go into our studio let me look at our recent videos like it depends there's some videos that i really enjoyed but they didn't do very well and i can't help but like put some kind of value on whether or not a video is like externally successful um it's weird i actually really like your totp guide it's not a favorite but like i'm just i just saw it and i'm like that's a good video our smart tv video is really fun i think it's a very fun video um
01:38:04
let's see here i our become anonymous guide is going to always be one of our favorites because the become anonymous guide had like a month-long production cycle anything that i put a month of time into i'm going to really love and enjoy so there's that i don't know i have several favorites but those are kind of like my initial thoughts um i also really like our a-bind review it was just like it just had good flow good flow oh our ditch youtube video is also pretty solid honestly a lot of content we made the last year i'm really happy
01:38:40
about excuse me is signal still secure yes we talk about this all the time signal is still secure how can i convince friends to care more about privacy um there's no c like answer to that i think you're really gonna have to try different things and i would look at it as more of a journey and just slowly like mentioning like why you care about it and why it's important and just seeing what can um what can happen i know that's like terrible advice like that's not really helpful but it's just
01:39:12
it's a hard thing to do oh i'm done scrolling why does nobody recommend un-googled chromium because it's kind of a pain in the ass to set up unless you're on linux that's kind of why and also extensions can kind of be a pain in the ass too we do recommend it on google chromium we talk about it quite a bit but it's just a hard thing to recommend to a large number of people who just want a browser that works thoughts on session um we have a messenger comparison that i think really goes into that a little bit better so uh type in tech lore messenger comparison and you're gonna get a
01:39:48
fantastic video best open source browser really gonna depend on who you are my man um i don't think there is a single best open source browser does google maps work with calex os we oh you guys ready there's something else we do that is awesome that i can also show you so i'm gonna go back to our screen share very handy-dandy screen share if you go to resources or i'm gonna start from the home page if you go to teclar.tech and you scroll down and you go to plexus
01:40:19
all right give it a sec we're using tor here you can search for anything maps so google maps right here two is completely de-googled and the u thing four is micro g so if you use calyx os with micro g it's a scale of one to four it's totally awesome if you click it you'll get more information so you cannot add a google account on a de-googled phone there's no reported issues with micro g you can search tons of apps there's facebook
01:40:49
facebook messenger you can look for whatsapp you can look for subway surfers and this is how you know what apps work before moving to a d google drum we host this project and this is an open source project plexus.techlor.tx you can also find it from our website and also please people contribute applications if you are on a degoogleduran there's a github that's linked on the plexus website right here you just click the the link on the bottom right it's going to take
01:41:19
you to our github page and this is where you can contribute your applications there are instructions here and we have almost a thousand apps so all of you watching if you're on a googled rom you can easily be the person who sends us over a thousand apps today just putting that out there if you need some incentive i'm now going to switch back to me hello the best video [Music] the best video on tecla is the four hour long go incognito video that was
01:41:59
definitely like uh that project was so exhausting that like i can't have it be a favorite like it's exhausting to even go back and look at it i spent almost two years putting together go incognito and seeing that like four hour video slowly come together and it was just exhausting in my life so it's a very hard thing to do maybe it's bad maybe it's something else i just hope that we see some kind of alternatives come about have you ever looked into delete me we have a whole service on or a whole video and delete me type in delete me tech lore you will find a full out
01:42:34
review it's one of my favorite videos that we've done actually i think i mentioned that one do you think we will be overrun by our government's need for power over its citizens i don't know it's a little deep for 9 pm at night for me hardened water fox or hardened firefox i i'd recommend just sticking with firefox instead of waterfox um firefox stays up to date a little bit better than waterfox um it's fine firefox yes it is based on firefox they pretty much just remove some of the proprietary bits that is found on f droid for those of you who are wondering [Music]
01:43:12
i am unsubscribing because you're not answering my question go for it do not care i got rejected from a job because the potential employer couldn't find anything about me online which he found too suspicious i have heard that before um so i'm sorry that's something that we are addressing in our uh private private job searching video that's already in production it should be coming out in the next few weeks that's something that we are going to be talking about is how to search for jobs privately would you consider session over signal when it finally supports audio and video
01:43:44
calls um again there's so many pros and cons between session and signal so check out that messenger comparison which i know you said you watched um personally no just because i still feel like signal is a lot more polished um than session and so i think i have a higher likelihood of success with the people that i'm trying to get onto with some kind of end to end encrypted messaging so i think it's a higher likelihood of success for me personally as for you do what you want and what you think is going to be best for you i don't really care what messenger you're using that's another side tangent people are like oh my gosh i can't believe you're telling people to use this and i'm like
01:44:15
i literally don't care what you guys use i'm not telling you to use this or that you're interpreting me saying it like like so it's kind of like a classic projection moment when like we don't completely tear signal to shreds and we just cover the facts the people who want signal to be covered to shreds go wow i can't believe you're defending signal and it's like we weren't defending them we just said what happened and it's funny because when we do that there's another comment that says i can't believe that you tore up signal for nothing so you have two people saying that we did two completely opposite things and it's com it's a complete like
01:44:46
projection moment that we're just simply not saying what they wanted us to say therefore we must have the opposite opinion um it's kind of hard to read through youtube comments sometimes because you guys are a little intense also thank you for your great work what software are you running this chat and sharing the screen obs baby obs all the way does mega source code encode include what but yes mega the cloud provider that is source code available for all their clients um try to get support not from a youtuber
01:45:36
please i'm not like qualified to answer that and i hope you get support from people you know in real life and um they can point you in the right direction i'm not qualified to answer that but i hope you get better setting up private secure self-hosted i'm telling you you should be a patron because patrons already know the videos are going to be uploaded in next several weeks and you might have some more insight into that just saying what is your opinion on linkedin just it's not privacy friendly if that's what you're asking we will talk a little bit about linkedin in
01:46:06
our private job searching video can you elaborate on the way you handle privacy discussions irl you know it's funny i just do it and i don't think much about it when i do it um so tell you what here's what i'm going to promise you i'm going to ask some people i know in real life how my discussions have gone with them and if i find anything like relevant to share i might make a video on it down the road that's all i can promise because honestly i don't think much about it um i feel like i might i seem to have good success with it in the discussions i have
01:46:37
um i feel like i've got that's just on my perception of it um but i don't really think about how what i do to be honest eh i'm not going to use it so i'm not really like i don't really care um i haven't read too much into it so i don't want to comment on it um but if this is true it would be a very good and very important thing for firefox but i have i haven't read into it so i don't want to comment on it your thoughts on the nitro key um i haven't used it i've done some basic research on
01:47:12
it but yeah what do you think of the apple watch what about the apple watch does your patreon include the job searching video no so we're not yet uploading videos in advance um we actually are like almost two weeks ahead of all of our uploads meaning our uploads are like scheduled two weeks in advance so down the road patreon will include early access to those videos but as of right now it is not it's simply just seeing what we're going to upload so it's like a list of our our uploads do you have a suggestion source to let
01:47:47
you use your own data collected services that let you use and own data collected like web history i don't know what exactly you're referring to there proof they cannot access your um yes it does and actually something that mega does that i wish um proton did is you can actually install a mega extension in your browser that runs the javascript locally on your machine meaning it truly is being end and encrypted on your device um which is awesome so yes
01:48:22
this is legit there is proof that they do this and it's wonderful i do not um i mentioned it earlier i actually have almost no experience with pi holes and it's something like i really need to get my hands on and really like dive into is a yubikey worth it there's one plugged into this computer right now we're going to make a video on it in the next several weeks or whatever that means where can i get a tecla hoodie um man that's a good question uh i forgot the url is it
01:48:52
merch.techlor.tech is that a thing no oh shop i think it's shop i should know this shop.techlor.txt yes no yes shop.techlore.tech bestie is where you get our stuff so that is where you go should i show it i i made this really cool thing i haven't mentioned it but it's like this screen sharing thing that's really awesome that you guys should totally look at shop.techlord.tech um we have very limited uh hoodie
01:49:28
designs though that's on purpose um let's see if they block tor do not block tor they might block tour i think they block tor i am sorry um the merch isn't handled through us so we don't have enough like funds and uh resources and capital to uh start all of our merch from the ground up it's a very hard thing to do so down the road that is our goal then we can actually host things that work with tor and it's a little bit more privacy friendly does mega have an app on f droid they do not
01:50:10
smart watches in general um yeah so what i'd recommend we have a video just type in teclor fitness tracking and that really dives into my overall thoughts on just like smart devices and like how to really think about them in a from a privacy perspective it really talks about the apple watch and smart watches and these fitness trackers congrats on the current success i feel like you had a big i'll go oh algorithm boost the past couple months what do you think were the vids that amplify your channel i don't think there were any specific vids um i think that we've just been really focusing on making content
01:50:40
that was aimed at reaching new viewers i think something we were really bad about and it's something that veritasium made me really like see clearly is that we were posting videos like here's why firefox's scandal did xyz we didn't actually do this but like let's say we posted a video about a firefox scandal that happened yesterday again there was no scandal yesterday this is all made up but let's say there was a scandal yesterday three months ago i think we would have made a video saying here's what you need to know about firefox's scandal the problem with that is there's um
01:51:12
the assumption that whoever seeing that thumbnail and title already knows there was a scandal if you look at our titles and thumbnails the last several months they're very cleverly designed to not do that anymore so that they're more aimed at people not even knowing like what it's about so it's a little bit more aimed at just other people so i actually attribute our youtube algorithm um perks the last few months to be attributed to all the work that we've been doing to really focus on like how are we branding and marketing our videos um that's something we've been really
01:51:42
focusing on the last few months and it's really cool to see you guys notice that because that's something we're really like focusing on big time some benefits using signal sms default there actually is one and what that is is signal this is something that i am telling you based on memory so i actually can be wrong about this please look into it further but signal i believe will actually still do end-to-end encryption locally for your sms messages right so locally
01:52:23
it will give you some better local protection now where i'm gonna say like does that really matter in the scheme of things probably not right the biggest issue with sms is the fact that there's pretty much zero you should assume sms messages are public because in transit they are not secure however signal will make them a little bit more secure locally on your phone the other thing i will say is that you can actually set up disappearing messages for signal on your device though it won't guarantee that it's going to be deleted on the other person's device obviously but if you want things to be cleared out
01:52:54
every week every day every hour you can actually do that with sms on signal so that's really like the only perks overall use anything you want for sms i use it inside a signal just because it's more convenient that way i don't have to use two apps digital minimalism do you think companies will someday discard email for more secure protocol it's possible um i don't think email's going away for a long time no we have a video that was just out in like the last couple weeks brave versus firefox techlore brave vs firefox check
01:53:31
it out it will answer your question for you hey thanks for the videos you're making you help me learn about tools keep them going thank you so much i'm really glad you liked them and they will keep coming trust me any other channels you think we should follow if you go to our channel youtube.comtechlore we are subscribed to a few channels and i like all those channels and we somewhat like endorse them not actually endorsed but like we like them and we like the content they put out tough one how do you explain in simple terms the need for security to someone by the way thank you for donating
01:54:03
gregory um let me answer your question tough one how do you explain in simple terms the need for security to someone who doesn't realize passwords are case sensitive asking for mom maybe what does case sensitive have to do with security of the password um i'm kind of misunderstanding the question here how do you explain in simple terms the need for security to someone who doesn't realize passwords are case sensitive are you saying um like generally a more secure password will have uppercase and lowercase letters therefore the person needs to understand
01:54:37
that they're case sensitive if so no matter what you're asking here a password manager is almost always the way to go for someone who doesn't like know how to generate strong passwords so if you can move them to a very easy to use password manager like bitwarden that might be your best bet i haven't looked too much into mali generally speaking though you're always better off using the original software not always it's actually a really massive oversimplification but in this case i would really try to stick with signal but also i haven't looked much into mali so don't take my word as gospel for this
01:55:16
for really anything but especially this how do you stay on top of staying private um well it helps that like privacy is kind of my full-time job so i kind of have to constantly be doing research and keeping up with the latest news um if you're not like me i really recommend like relying on resources that summarize things for you easily um you can use rss to keep up to date with a lot of news you can follow surveillance support which is our weekly podcast which covers all the latest things normally within an hour so if you have less than an hour a week to dedicate to this you can really keep up with things really well
01:55:47
michael basil has a podcast there's other youtube channels out there that cover news here and there really whatever is going to help you with your privacy and security journey i'm all for [Music] yeah thanks camera i'm glad you found it why signal and not telegram because signal beats telegram in almost every conceivable way with the exception of how telegram handles user names watch our recent messenger comparison video there's a reason why telegram is not commonly recommended from strictly a privacy security point of view hey if you want to unsubscribe that's
01:56:26
totally fine again i don't really care we're going to put out our content either way i don't really care if you guys want to be along for the ride or not i hope you are because i think we've spread good info but if you don't agree then go off like it's totally fine that's pretty funny can you re-answer gregory russo's question the thing about passwords wasn't important it was just demonstrate to target okay let me try rereading that then got it okay thank you for thank you thank you for really clearing up i didn't read this correctly so thank you for clearing that up um so just to
01:57:17
reiterate what gregory's actually asking here that i totally misunderstood how do you explain in simple terms the need for security to someone who essentially doesn't understand technology very well um i would try to make as many comparisons to the real world as possible so for example um if you're trying to tell them not to give random information to facebook they're going to ask you why not and you go well what if facebook was a random person on the street would you tell them your address like would you tell them your phone number it's like no you want to
01:57:48
make sure you're only giving it to trusted people so i would just do your best to really use a lot of analogies try to make comparisons to things that they really understand tie it to the real world there's just a lot of things you have to do that aren't going to be very literal and technical you really have to avoid jargon you really have to rely on analogies and um that that's just the best that's the best success i've had is like really avoiding all jargon and sometimes it's really easy to like try to be nuanced about things especially for me i love being nuanced but sometimes when
01:58:18
someone really doesn't know you have to take the authority and just go this is what's better for you if they go oh what browser should i use and i'm like oh man if i move you from chromium to firefox oh you're gonna lose it i'm just gonna be like here just use brave please just use brave like brave's great and then i'll install it i'll disable all the crypto crap for them because they're not they're not going to want to deal with the crypto crap um so yes i would really just keep things as simple as possible and try to take care of as many things as you can for them that you that
01:58:48
within reason do you have good news sources that can be followed via rss um i do and it's a lot of them and i don't want to get into it right now to be honest so i'm sorry um if you guys like want that more often just let me know and maybe that's something we can make a video on down the road like how to stay up to date with things do you have rss feed on your website to notify about your youtube videos um youtube actually well three things i can tell you here youtube has its own rss feed in fact i stay up to date with a lot of youtube channels
01:59:22
with my rss feed it's built into youtube just look it up youtube rss feed on any search engine you can follow any youtube channel with rss we also post on odyssey though and odyssey has a rss feed for every channel we're also on peertube and as you can imagine peertube also uses rss so you can actually follow our content from any three of the platforms we upload to using rss also in our communities we post all our content as well also we're on twitter which you can also access via knitter
01:59:53
which i always feel weird saying um but those all have rss totally thanks for joining you've been here since the beginning and i'm really glad you enjoyed it thanks for tuning around or thanks for sticking around um you guys are getting angry at each other what else is new youtube comments yeah try brave search like deadass um i've had really good results with brace search to be honest um yeah have you tried streaming odyssey i have not how do you disable the crypto crap in brave you mostly just like
02:00:40
disable the widgets on the setup screen and you go into settings and like click the hide brave rewards icon that takes care of like 90 of it it's really easy it doesn't take long will there be a recording yes it'll be live after we're done do you plan to set up a master account we might down the road i'm glad you like the matrix community um to be perfectly honest i don't always agree with that sentiment to be perfectly honest um but they are a lot of times a very good community and i'm glad you think that and that's good feedback for me
02:01:17
um i don't think so but i could be wrong yes i'm really glad you've been around for so long yeah brave search is great like like try it out we actually did a brave search verse duckduckgo comparison it was very surface level um but it kind of gives you an idea of like some things to expect before moving over all right i'm all caught up after two hours i am caught up with your comments man you guys uh you're so slow so slow unbelievable letting me catch up what's wrong with you guys
02:01:56
um i'm just just messing around all right i think i'm gonna call it in like five minutes is this gonna be a regular thing we're gonna see this may or may not have been a test may or may not i drive for spider oak um it's gonna depend um i don't know is idrive its own thing are you talking about icloud is the google messages app using rcs chat safer than sms yes please do this was fun i'm glad you guys
02:02:32
liked it um i definitely will consider doing it more often i'm a big fan of you we really appreciate what you're doing what firewall may physical firewall you recommend stop um i recommend what do you mean by physical firewall i'm generally speaking i just like to use whatever firewall is like the recommended one for your operating system i'm still good in obs so we should be vibing do you recommend google i haven't used it too much um i have tried it once or twice as for like do i recommend it um
02:03:03
try it out see if it works for you will you stay up or will you it's going to stay up yeah yeah it's been two hours i'm a little tired i haven't gotten water i've supposed to take water breaks give me a sec never heard of idrive so can't really tell you what's better um ice drive seemed fine we just took a look at it in a video seemed fine mega vs google drive um from a privacy perspective mega if that's what you're asking um i have sent monero for supporting last month in the
02:03:45
comment video reaction video a few days ago it was very good yeah thank you um again we have our xmr address manero in the description of every video and we get a lot of tips in there so thank you all very much for that um it might that'd be cool i wouldn't complain about that as long as it's implemented properly oh oh everyone's going off now oh yeah me too me too i'm glad you liked all the answers yeah no thanks thanks for watching
02:04:28
okay i know you said i've seen your videos but have you seen our recent video talking about private note-taking options because i actually just use signal note to solve for literally everything and our editor tori who i talked about earlier is like the big productivity note-taking person and um she was the person who led that project you and your team are doing an outstanding job thank you so much rico thank you for the donation and i'm glad that you like what we're doing oh my god okay i'm only going to do this because they asked and like i don't mean this in a racist way
02:05:04
please don't take this out of context anybody this was a request and i'm going to do it um i feel like it's a silent piece soupdick but i'm not going to say the last line just in case it's like some kind of troll i don't think it is okay soup dick i'm gonna try souptik love your videos bro thank you all right you're just spamming now now i wish i didn't do it you're ruining it you're making me like wish i didn't do it come on man
02:05:42
not cool your comment is now showing yeah and actually craft um may have seen the video and may have reached out to us and may we may have contact with them now may may maybe um i haven't used it it looks cool though what's the deal with this second brain thing i don't know man i i was not actually in charge of that project i didn't even write the script for that video that was all tori i don't have a reminder app and i've never used one my name is very important i play
02:06:23
minecraft i use obsidian because it's so customizable it works for the yeah i'm glad you like it thank you for doing this which answer that virus microsoft defender windows defender if you're on windows any other platform you're probably good with that one what's your age bro everyone guesses everyone guesses and i always tell them i'm at least 70. at least that's that's my only hint at least 70. i just have a really good skincare routine awesome job love the work you do totally no you know try to forward that too i let them know there was an overwhelming amount of positivity and
02:06:56
love for our content they'll like to see that they're probably all asleep right now because we're in different time zones we are a remote team you are 70 000. years old yes that's actually the closest guess that i've seen so far do you guys have self-hosting videos no but if you're a patreon you might have already seen a teaser for something we're working on not a teaser but like you'll know that we're working on something every possible privacy issue like that's like an objective like correct
02:07:35
answer by the way based on any kind of history with facebook there we go boom all right it's starting to slow down everybody all right so i'm going to use this last little bit to shield some stuff of ours um so i'm going to go back to our amazing screen share um if you go to our website um as i mentioned several times we have a vpn chart you can access this by going to the vpn toolkit um we do offer consulting but again the
02:08:16
consulting is very much like we might get 10 people applying we might can only let one person in it's just because it's only me doing that and i have such a limited time we have merch if you like some of our merch i'm wearing it right now this is actually the merch from like three years ago um we have newer designs and things like that we have plexus to help you switch to de-googled android roms we have a normal video content and also we have a lot of resources on our website and i think the resources are something that's like kind of underrated we have an anonymity quiz to kind of grade um how secure and private you are online um
02:08:47
these are all like youtube embeds and then we have some software recommendations operating systems and also we have external resources because i don't think that we're the end-all privacy security people in fact i think that you should be getting your information and resources from a ton of different people on the internet um if anyone tells you otherwise proceed with caution and i can't believe i'm the person who has to say that to you guys like if anyone out there is telling you they're the only good source of information you're
02:09:18
you're um crap i'm tired your antennas should be going like straight up like uh-uh red flag there are several great sources of information online um and also we have xmr so you can donate to us via xmr uh that's manera for those of you who don't know our address is down in the description what else can i show while i still have all of you guys um we need all the support we can get um let's see patreon so there was actually quite a few i saw
02:09:53
a lot of our patrons today in this live stream and if you go to patreon.com techlore you're going to see that we have some different things here for you and we honestly we just recently hit one of our big goals which is awesome you get to be if you donate 15 a month to us you get to instantly be in our video outros so that means for the end of time you're going to be in the outros of every single one of our main videos which is awesome so two years down the road you're still going
02:10:25
to be in it that's like the main stuff that i want to show um if you can't support us totally cool um just you being here and like learning about privacy and security i'm i'm thrilled with that right like the fact that we have like 163 000 people subscribed to us is just like makes me so happy i'm just seeing people just active in the communities also um do patreon videos get passed over to youtube um we do monthly livestreams with our
02:10:55
patrons and those are not eventually posted at all those are just one-on-ones with our patrons down the road we are going to be posting our videos in advance for our patrons so if you want early access to videos that will be a thing in the coming months no kyc vpns so know your customers what they're asking essentially like can you open it privately guess what guess what guys you know that you're not getting out of here without one more mention of this at least our vpn chart
02:11:31
are you ready for this once tor decides to load it it was working before so this isn't a tour problem it's just a slow slow problem if you click here and like let's say ivpn vs mulvane you can scroll down and you know what you're going to find you know what you're going to find anonymous sign up and we answer that for you so you can quickly look to see what vpns have kyc essentially an anonymous signup essentially is only for emails and phone
02:12:02
numbers and things like that so if it says yes it doesn't require any information at all to use um [Music] what os is your pc daily driver like i said i don't have a personal pc and i said that earlier um but for the work device it is mac os because i expanded on this a lot earlier so if you want to re-watch this live stream i talk a lot more about the journey to get to mac os for our business um but not for our personal stuff how long before you go i'm wrapping
02:12:32
things up i'm sorry soak but um you can always re-watch it it's going to be live afterwards if you want to like see what was talked about why are some vpn reviews biased they're usually praising nord um nord pays well and why is everything in the world biased normally there's some kind of motive and we try our best to not do biased vpn interviews everything in our chart is open source everything's based on a protocol you can check everything on github and also like we take feedback so let us know if something you don't think is
02:13:07
accurate we'll try to fix it oh my gosh can an iphone be completely de-googled i don't think an iphone has google out of the box so i don't know what you're asking um can i join your patreon with crypto unfortunately no though down the road like years from now we really want to have our own like self-hosted um place that's not like patreon run that is the goal it's just people say get off patreon and it's like yeah to what that actually integrates with everything else we do there really isn't much out there um that works well for us um but eventually the goal is to build something of our own but that's gonna
02:13:38
take so much effort um totally um if you do then like send me a message um that'd be awesome quality looks awesome thank you this man in his vpn chart really though it's more like this man needing to respond to vpn questions that are all asking the same thing that can be answered via their vpn chart which they built because of those questions so that's how i'd respond to that thank you i'm glad you like it um [Music] make a video talking about living
02:14:07
without a personal pc i might no i don't trust it i don't trust it i'm not gonna do it totally i'm glad you like it how did you learn all this it's all self-taught you can't get a college degree in this um you might in like infosec in the security end of things but it really is just all self-taught find research articles find like trusted sources of information read through everything they've ever posted and follow their journey because what they posted five years ago likely isn't going to be accurate but learning the context of where they've come to today i think
02:14:47
is a really important thing to learn as well it just takes a lot of time um [Music] channel here channel got me into privacy i'm so glad thank you i'm glad you guys like found privacy because of us that's really awesome um can i see the vpn chat one last time you know what you can you can um so if you go to our website teclar.tech and you go to the vpn toolkit you'll find this awesome vpn chart it's so cool and like i've only mentioned it like once or twice today um and also you can access it not on the live stream so you can go
02:15:18
out right now on your browser and see it signing off for the night thanks for the live stream totally mitchell and i hope you enjoyed it what's actually this is my profession this is what i do full time um sometimes i'll do like little side gigs but for the most part this is my job um boom i am caught up you guys are suck at leaving comments i'm just playing please do not leave more now um [Music] did somebody say fosgames i've been hearing a lot about pale moon do you
02:15:58
watch linux channels i don't i don't watch much youtube i don't have time to watch youtube um yes i do know other channels uh if you go to our youtube.com techlore and click on subscriptions there are some channels were subscribed to there that you guys might like yes yes it's um yes i feel like you enjoy reading our comments more than we enjoy typing i definitely don't enjoy comments i'd say like half our comments just make me gag like i hate reading youtube comments um long story um i did talk about it a
02:16:35
little bit earlier if you want to rewind all right it's really starting to slow down now so i really think i'm gonna call it oh we got a donation okay donation question favorite show on netflix also good night first i just want to say i hate netflix i hate how it auto-plays everything by default so annoying as for my favorite show on netflix um this is just based on like my limited use of netflix because i don't have my own netflix account so it's just when i go to like other people's houses and they have netflix um
02:17:18
what is my favorite netflix show that's a good question um man i'm blanking i did like stranger things stranger things is kind of good very basic but i like season one it kind of just got old it's kind of like rehashing the same crap after season two um wait there isn't is there a season three yet i don't even know i stopped following it like after season two um lost interest um big mouth's kind of funny but it's like i don't know it doesn't age well i don't like netflix i don't know
02:17:51
i don't like netflix um i did like the movie um like don't don't with cats that was a good one um i don't know i'm not a good person to ask for show recommendations to be honest if you couldn't tell by my response to this yay i'm glad um the hated one is good content too are you drinking from an aluminum bottle i believe so netflix is so annoying yeah so i i do tell people to disable it because it's so freaking annoying
02:18:28
what do you think about mr robot i have that's one of those things i need to watch you know that reminds me i do like black mirror and i've seen black mirror on netflix and i need to watch more of it i've only seen the first few episodes um and everyone recommends me missed a robot and i know i need to watch it because so many people have said you're going to love this to the point that i know i'm going to love it so yes i need to watch it would it be possible for you to post this in further questions on the youtube yeah like i said earlier this is going to be live after it's done i'm thinking i'm using a google based browser temporarily what do you think as
02:18:58
long as it's set up and it's compartmentalized properly and it works with your threat model and you're only using it for things that fit with that threat model totally fine but again you have to do it properly aluminum is probably toxic just saying yeah i don't know if it's aluminum i have to do research on that so thanks for letting me know have you not seen it and this is your job what's your story and how you got it have i not seen what yeah i know i i miss the robot i think is what you're referring to i have not seen it first
02:19:34
howdy secondly what's your story and how you got i've already told my story a little bit earlier um so if you want to find that out just rewind is the pixel 4a still worth it um i like to look at phones from a value perspective and the pixel 4a now is down to why like two years of like software updates so if you're able to get a good deal on it and it's fine then like cool also thank you bite hunter i totally ignored that thank you that's your second donation i think today your second or third so thank you very much
02:20:04
um so it's really going to depend on what you consider like valuable personally i will probably not be using a phone with no more security updates so i really have to look at the value proposition which is why the pixel six is so attractive for me because it has guaranteed five years of software updates with security updates i should say um and also i can get a good deal on black friday and if you do the math it's actually cheaper than um getting like the 5a for me personally getting the 5a and having to upgrade in three years i have not seen the smithereens episode
02:20:43
oh good question what's your view on blocking google ads i want to hit google's ad revenue but don't want to hurt the revenue of content creators so this is totally personal right if you don't like ads on youtube block them and speak your voice about it like if we're like it's the content creators job to be able to offer multiple revenue sources for their audience i feel like we do a good job of that and honestly i feel like most creators do a very good job of that i think telling people to turn off ads for their channel is something you can do and like i think it's really awesome people whitelist our channel like i've seen comments about
02:21:14
that and that's really cool and i respect that but i would never have an expectation for you guys to watch our ads however what i tell people if you are blocking ads on youtube i would say just do something for at least one of your creators that you watch consistently if you have five creators that you watch every single day find a way to support them even if it's a dollar a month like just do something to support those creators that's all i'd say and you don't have to do anything i'm just saying like personally i really like to encourage people to give back in
02:21:44
some way at least if they're not watching ads um that's like the best thing that you can do to support a non-ad driven world how to address statements like no one is interested in your persona i don't that's what kind of question is that arthur what what do you want me to say to that what phone do you use i use an android device with a custom rom hello david thank you for saying hello back what do you think about unofficial
02:22:28
custom roms um personally i steer clear um i like to get things as close to the source as possible do you make money when youtube read subscribers view your videos yes i don't know how much or what percentage percentage but we i do see in our analytics that some of our revenue comes from youtube red what is most private and or anonymous way to send receive files um i'd probably say onion share is like the easiest most accessible way to do it onion share is a wonderful project love it absolutely love it check out onion
02:23:00
chair can custom roms be fingerprinted in some way um i'm i'm not qualified to answer that i haven't seen anything that would lead me to say yes but i would almost like to assume there is some kind of some thing that can happen um but yeah i don't feel qualified to answer that looks like you're really tired yes i'm tired it's 9 30 here and i'm about to log off definitely do you think tor is really secure because we don't know who runs exit nodes yeah but tor is built in a way
02:23:30
that it doesn't matter too much who is running the exit that's like the whole reason to use tor um so yes i do think tour is secure um and i think tour is safe and i think that you need to understand how tour fits into your threat model are you a verified creator so i can tip brave bat token yes we are on youtube on our website teclore.tech as well as on twitter and on reddit through my personal like business personal reddit account um i don't have a personal reddit account is there a difference between linksystems when it comes to telemetry mostly just out of the box concerns most
02:24:01
linux distros ask you on setup if you want to opt in uh not even ubuntu does it by default anymore could be wrong on that i have not used it in a while but i'm fairly certain ubuntu turned off telemetry by default or at least it asks you please correct me if i'm wrong i'm not super certain about that do you still have patreon i'm going to start looking yeah no totally patreon.com techloredavid sorry you missed it but this will be live after i log off so you'll still be able to re-watch the live stream how much do you get from youtube red i
02:24:38
subscribe because i hate ads but still want to support you i can't tell you how much but what i will tell you is we actually do see um a higher percentage of the income from youtube red so if you are using youtube red we actually technically are probably getting more than if you are watching ads and also you are in a way still bypassing the ad industry by using youtube red so it is a question of values and what you're comfortable with i'm not going to tell you what to do and not what not to do but i do think that if your goal is to avoid the advertising world youtube red isn't a terrible
02:25:08
solution to that but it comes at the cost of like trusting google is there any tech you feel you're missing out on by being privacy conscious no and the reason for that i'm very lucky to say this i'm a digital minimalist at heart so i really don't get like incentivized by seeing all this crazy new tech um and that's not like a common thing i do know that like most normal people like really like seeing the newest tech i'd say for me i'm really a big sucker for like raw performance so when i see like these new um socs coming out from apple that are just
02:25:43
like completely blowing everything out of the water like i start drooling a little bit not actually but like it's very fun to see so i'm kind of a performance nut um but outside that like no i'm not that attracted to the most technology nowadays what email service do you use um i won't mention what i use for my personal life but for the business we use protonmail for everything you don't get pumped up for vr i do not i'm not into gaming like i've tried vr and i'm like cool i'll wait for it to be a little bit
02:26:29
better it's about it it's really expensive to get into as well um options about opinion about micro g i think it's good open source project nice um overall like great project i have not used youtube advanced though i can tell you to advance it is not as privacy friendly as people think it is um which country are you and your team from we're all u.s um we aren't local though so we're all remote but we're in the u.s proton members too try both not everything is like an ore you can
02:27:01
even use both like try both see which one works better for you for our business proton mail is like hands down a winner like the business plan for protonmail is like so much better than 2.0 does um but try out both i don't care what email provider you guys use that's like so they have to tell people are there any major actions you do to maintain pricing security irl outside of digital realm yes but there's not much i can share for obvious reasons what will happen to tor browser bundle if the extensions and it get compromised i mean it only comes with like two
02:27:38
extensions i think https everywhere and u block or does it come with u-block origin or just no script no i think i think u-block origin's included on um tails or something like that um either way it should be safe um i wouldn't that's like one of the smallest concerns i'd be thinking about with tor i've just found your channel any recommendations regarding your videos i would recommend with our i would recommend starting with our become anonymous guide just type in you might not even need to type tech lore just
02:28:14
type in become anonymous on youtube and our video should pop up um it's a great starting point it's really just kind of like a broad dive into like literally everything we talk about all in one like 30-ish minute video if you want to be a little bit more extensive we have a go incognito video that's four and a half hours long it's free on youtube um there's a paid version as well as some extra tips and like bonus bonus content things like that but overall like free version has most of the things you need um those are probably the two best starting places that i would like push you towards
02:28:46
and if you're looking for something a little bit more like bare bones and something like simplified we have a privacy for beginners video so if you're looking for like just a broad all-encompassing quicker video become anonymous guide about 30 minutes if you're looking for a really deep dive check out go incognito front to back four and a half hours and if you're looking for like a super quick like i just want to get started today check out our privacy for beginners video it's about eight minutes i think is it even oh we have a verified person here all right is it even possible to
02:29:19
actually maintain privacy on social media are anonymous social media accounts private at all or is it unless so you really need to define anonymous here like we have twitter set up and it's set up in a way that maintains my personal privacy um because it's all tied to the business that's just a really easy example of how like things are compartmentalized in a way that fits my threat model so your first step is to develop a threat model and understand how each social media site can fit into that threat model that's why this stuff is so nuanced and it's so dependent on who you are and it's very personalized
02:29:50
um so yes i will say there is a way to maintain privacy on social media depending on your threat model and depending on which platforms you're able to use to fit that threat model that's what i would tell you thanks for giving me content to upload on my youtube channel i don't know oh are you going to upload something i said or did today go off i hope you have fun with that um we still have 164 viewers that's crazy like it's crazy how much we've grown um
02:30:27
i remember when we were like doing 20 people like 20 was a max and now we're just casually doing 165 and yeah i'm probably going to log off soon though i'm really tired did you just ask what's the best tour client for windows 10 where would you get it from the tor browser bundle website like the only torque client you should ever use that's that's that is like the objectively correct answer please only use tor browser bundle how long have you been on youtube man i
02:31:05
think we started uploading in 2014 december 2014 just been like six plus years it's been a while thank you henry thank you guys thanks turtle thanks race rice i hope i said that right yeah and you know what like we haven't talked about this specifically like head on directly but if you watch or become anonymous guide in our course go incognito you should have like the understanding in order to make this assessment but yes we should do something that like talks about it more directly
02:31:43
i i mean yeah it's a pretty easy like i we get the comments like that all the time like lol you're saying to delete google on google but like i would fight back on this mickey do you know what i find more ironic than posting on google to delete google posting on a non-google platform to delete google you know why i think that's more ironic because let's say you're using something like reddit and you're telling people to delete facebook i feel like a lot of reddit users might have already deleted facebook right do you know where 100 of the people are going to have the platform that you're telling them to
02:32:14
delete on the actual platform so if you're on youtube and you're telling people to delete google literally 100 of the people with accounts that are subscribed to you are going to have google accounts you're literally targeting the people directly and that's why like our whole slogan is spreading privacy to the masses like we're trying to put ourselves out there and spread this mission of ours to everyone um so yes i i do fight back on that i almost find it more ironic to be touting how like you should avoid privacy-centric services or how you
02:32:46
should avoid privacy invasive services on services that are already privacy-centric so you're like totally missing like the audience that you should be targeting there that's my opinion um yeah that was like so dragged out and it didn't need to be that complex which tells me i'm like really getting tired because i'm just rambling and i can't put together like a good cohesive um sentence which video were you surprised did really well oh my god that's a great question let me look
02:33:20
i will say a lot of our surveillance reports consistently surprise me like i'll just put out a random surveillance report surveillance reports are produced within a 24-hour period most of them and so like it's just non-stop like it's recorded boom one of us is editing it we edit it we upload it we get a thumbnail together we have to do the mp3 for the podcast boom we upload it everywhere we try to time it so everything goes live at the same time 24 hours done bam then i check it the next day and it's like holy crap it's outperformed the videos that we spend two weeks on so like that's kind of i would say generally speaking to videos that
02:33:51
consistently surprise me people love the surveillance reports so yeah your surveillance reports are definitely one of my favorites series on the internet i'm glad you like it i didn't think people would love it that much and surveillance support was created just like literally spontaneously i was just sitting and i was working on a video and i go what if we did news like tech quickie but better for for like for privacy and security not actually better um i think tai cookie's fantastic but like from a privacy security perspective how could we do this similar to techwiki but like better for our specific field
02:34:36
and so boom right there i just like got out my my camera and i thought about what to do when i put a little script together and that's the first servant support which is like totally different from what it is today but it was a spontaneous decision that led to something that i very much think is important and i really enjoy now yeah thanks for all the like comments about the surveillance report like it means a lot um how did the collab with the new oils start i feel like you should we should ask him that sometime because he was completely responsible for it he reached out um
02:35:24
we got on the phone i asked him some questions i checked out his podcast um but yeah he pretty much initiated everything and asked like what do you think about combining because he's the new oil had his own podcast that was the same exact thing it was weekly news and we just we approached it very similarly um so yeah i would ask him though he probably would answer that a little bit better than me your face when you're reading comments gold i wish you guys can see when i read like actual youtube comments on our normal videos because most of them just make me
02:35:59
go oh my god um though it's funny because i'd say like so many comments that you guys leave i screenshot and we definitely like laugh about them no offense but we do laugh about a lot of your guys's comments in our like team chat amongst ourselves um some of them we laugh because some of you guys are genuinely hilarious and some of them are funny because it's like really off the rails conspiracy level stuff that we're just like wow this person has like really lost it um but it's i guess entertaining a little bit um
02:36:30
in a messed up way um it's still something i should be addressed seriously though but yeah proof you should apply this advance for ideology and editing technique to the rest of your videos and save yourself time yeah so things like what i'm doing right now are actually extremely good for time because i'm just every minute that i'm spending streaming is a minute that is being used for content so um yes we are actually doing that and that's actually a big reason for the recent comparison videos like braver's firefox which uses a spreadsheet format the spreadsheet
02:37:03
format is kind of influenced from our surveillance support format a little bit so like we are taking that advice i know you're not a big fan of telegram but what do you think is better or less bad check out go to youtube.com or peertube or whatever type in our peertube instance and go techlore messenger comparison and you will have a fantastic long video answer as to why certain things are better or not as or worse than telegram and when oh my god and when they do that
02:37:36
just watch the video it's it's a great video and it really dives into like the pros and cons of every messenger out there including whatsapp thanks for your time tonight thank you for tuning in turtle um you look tired i am tired um you probably give commentary that probably shouldn't be known yeah um yeah you're right i probably shouldn't mention that i laugh at some of your guys's comments i met a guy a few days ago that literally wears tinfoil hats yeah um and you know what maybe they're right i
02:38:10
still like to like look and like really analyze what people are saying to see if there's some truth to it um based on like the information we have today um yeah henry looks like a preschool teacher as to yeah sometimes it feels like that um they trust megas and encryption storage i do we use it for our production workflow god bless you for your work um thank you i'm glad you like what we do i love how you both read the same article but differently the realism of how people can see and read the same thing but yeah um that's kind of something fun we're starting to keep
02:38:47
more of the rambling and discussions that we have for those advanced reports to kind of like outline some more of those differences suggest me suggest me what do you need net writer suggest me i i haven't used it not many thoughts on it is windows 11 more privacy focused than windows 10. i would just assume there's very little to no difference okay i i'm starting to realize now that this is
02:39:32
just never going to end until i officially say this is going to end so um i think i should put an end to it yeah i think i'm gonna put an end to it okay again one final thing so i'm actually shutting the chat so that's it i'm not going to read the chat anymore it probably will disappear now from obs right boom look at that oh i'm cut off oh my god oh my god it
02:40:08
cuts off um let me fix that actually i'm just gonna do a screen share there so before i log off for the night first off thank you everyone who tuned in this is like so cool i haven't live streamed in so long and seeing how much support we have in the live streams is just phenomenal and thank you for your request all of your questions tired henry is going to try to finish this up with as few stutters as possible go to our website teclar.tech check out the stuff we do or don't i don't care but if you do look at it um we have some really cool vpn resources it's open
02:40:40
source um we have other resources like plexus to help you move to degoogled operating systems on your phones we have consulting for some of you again very very limited we don't have very much time and energy to dedicate to it but we do work with very few clients um we do have merchandise on our store and we also go incognito our course so if you really like the approach that we have and the very like nuanced view on privacy and security you're really going to like go incognito go incognito is actually free to watch we have a free and a premium version and the free
02:41:12
version you're going to learn so much the premium version you're going to learn maybe five ten percent more the premium version has quizzes and some other things to really help you retain the information better but the goal isn't to pay while pricing security information so both of these are extremely great options for you the premium is more of just a support method for people who want to help us out because it is ultimately a free project and the free one is under creative commons so like you can do anything you want with it there's even a torrent you can do anything you want with these files and here's like a course overview it's very in-depth um and that's really it um
02:41:43
also like basic youtube stuff man like subscribe like our content share it around join our communities we have discord and matrix uh check it out down below we support monero for donations and you can find that in the description of every video or you can go to our website support page and also we're on patreon patreon.com techlore um certain tiers allow you to be in the outro of every single one of our videos we accept that we're on paypal reluctantly some people use paypal where we really just try to open ourselves up to every way you can
02:42:13
support us so if there's anything you can do to support us thank you very much and also thank you to everyone who donated in this live stream many of you donated a lot of money to us today and that is freaking awesome as for the future this was kind of a test run and i wanted to see how this was going to pan out and overall i think this live stream went really well so we will be thinking over in the near future how um we might do these more often so please leave your feedback if you liked this and we may do it more often
02:42:44
down the road could be a monthly thing bi-weekly we don't know yet um but either way thank you very much for tuning in that's going to end this live stream you can always rewind it to the beginning if you want to go through all the questions thank you all for your questions um along the way you guys really kept the stream going i didn't have to do anything outside to answer your questions which i love doing i love sharing my thoughts on things and that's really it thank you for tuning in to tech lore i will see you guys next time
