Social Media Privacy and Security / Re: Old tweets reveal hidden secrets
« Last post by Foxfire on Yesterday at 06:16:17 AM »

  I joined one once & a relative  promptly plastered my unwanted photograph all over the site.
  I do not feel the need for them  & am happy to be left minus such contact.

Current News / Microsoft shaking up how Windows feature updates are rolled out
« Last post by Bugbatter on February 15, 2019, 11:29:31 AM »

Each feature update now has one release date rather than two.
Customers using Windows Update for Business will lose some ability to delay the deployment of each new Windows feature release once version 1903 goes live.

Privacy is one of the reasons I never used social media. Although I have a twitter account, I seldom use it....there are two tweets, one of which is when I attempted to raise some legal funds for my involvement in the BC lawsuit a couple years ago.

 I saw the writing on the wall and opted to be a ghost. Between the government and social media, they know everything about most of us.

Current News / Email crooks swindle woman out of $150K from home sale

"But it should matter to anybody working at a business responsible for securing transfers of large sums of money. The defense? Better protection of email servers, better training so employees donít get phished, beefed-up protocols for checking payments, and, of course, as much help as possible from law enforcement in cracking whoeverís behind these lucrative scams."

Researchers from the Foundation for Research and Technology in Greece and the University of Illinois found all this out after writing a tool called LPAuditor. The software mines publicly available tweet data that anyone can download from Twitter via its application programming interface (API).

Using the tool, they analyzed the metadata Ė hidden information about a tweet embedded in the post Ė to identify usersí homes, workplaces and sensitive places that they visited. In dozens of cases, they were also able to identify the users behind anonymous Twitter accounts.

Sorry I missed your PM. We generally do not like to delete posts. But check out the post now, I suspect that the edit I did will work just as well. But there is nothing we can do about Google.

Hi Hoov/Bugbatter

 I am performing a digital cleanse and looking to get a thread redacted that shows up when I google myself, as it contains a log of a MWB scan that contains my own name in some of the file paths.

I could post the link here but u suspect that would just duplicate the issue in this thread.

I would like to redact it to remove my name from the log content. is there a way of doing this? As I cannot see an Edit button...

Or if it is simpler for all concerned, is it possible to delete the thread?

I am sending you a PM, Bugbatter, with the link, so you can see what I am on about :)
