"Face surveillance technology is so harmful to our safety and privacy, and so discriminatory, that government must not use it at all." And that's why EFF and Director of Federal Affairs @imck82 support the new Federal FRT moratorium bill. markey.senate.gov/news/press…

Still, the lack of transparency is a cause for concern @EFF, which flagged these emails for the @latimes, said. In a letter sent to the CA AG last week, the EFF called for an investigation into Ring’s relationship with 145 CA police departments latimes.com/business/technol…

NEW: Emails from 2016 show Ring provided dozens of free or discounted cameras to LAPD officers for official and personal use. In return, the LAPD officers encouraged the spread of Ring’s products throughout the community. eff.org/deeplinks/2021/06/em…

In a quick look back over 30 years of Pretty Good Privacy (PGP), its creator, Phil Zimmermann, says "the need for protecting our right to a private conversation has never been stronger. " We agree.
"I wanted PGP to be used for human rights applications—to spread all over the world, especially to places where people needed protection from their own governments. But I couldn't say that out loud, because it would help the prosecutor prove intent." philzimmermann.com/EN/essays…

"It begins with one doorbell camera on the front of your house.. It extends to cameras inside the home...It would not surprise me if in the next year or two, Sidewalk becomes an avenue by which they can extend that surveillance out into the neighborhood." npr.org/transcripts/10025909…

Along with the other organizations, we sent a letter to @PayPal and @Venmo to call out their opaque and often discriminatory practices around account closures. We demand: 🔸Publishing transparency reports 🔸Providing a meaningful notice to users 🔸Providing timely appeal process

We're urging a federal judge to strike down Florida’s new law, which would give preferential treatment to political candidates, allowing them to violate a social media platform’s rules with impunity, even when it causes abuse or harassment. eff.org/press/releases/uncon…

The law has some laudable provisions, such as mandating that platforms notify users about takedowns, use clear moderation standards, and take other steps to be more transparent. But its overall framework is unconstitutional. eff.org/deeplinks/2021/05/fl…
