Online Safety Bill Criticism
The Online Safety Bill was postponed in Parliament this summer when Boris Johnson resigned. But now it's back. This UK bill aims to lay down rules in law about how platforms should deal with harmful content. But the plans for a new "internet safety law" will do more harm than good and reduce everybody's security online. We have signed an open letter to urge Parliament to stop this bill.
Every day is Black Friday at Tutanota.
The Black Friday hype is just another method by marketers and advertisers to keep you buying. Higher, faster, further - that's the aim of marketers. But for consumers it leads to over-consumption and unnecessary spending. That's why we are saying no to Black Friday. Instead we are offering fair prices all year round.

e-Evidence: Open letter calls for privacy safeguards.
e-Evidence negotiations have put fundamental rights on the line in an attempt to make cross-border criminal investigations more efficient. However, the cost for this efficiency would be very high. We call on policymakers to do better. The EU Council must acknowledge the need for stronger protection of Free Speech and privacy rights.

Social Credit System in China: Why it is so scary.
Imagine a world where everyone bins their trash, no one crosses a red light and everyone pays their taxes so that schools are always well funded. This sounds like a nice utopia. But add to this surveillance cameras, face recognition, and the requirement to always praise the government. Now it sounds like an Orwellian nightmare come true: Meet China's Social Credit System.

Dad sends naked picture of his child via Gmail to a doctor & his Google account gets blocked for good.
Once upon a time there was a father who used Google for everything: email, calendar, photos, logins. But then he shared naked pictures of his son with their children's doctor via Gmail. This got his entire Google account blocked. It was flagged for distributing child pornography or CSAM (short for child sexual abuse material). Even though the investigation was quickly closed, Google's block remained in place. This father lost access to years of email conversations, calendar entries, photos, and more. This example shows how harmful scanning for CSA material is. Instead we need security and privacy online!

CSAM Scanning: EU Commission's lies uncovered.
Today the EU Commission will present unprecedented legislation that would require online service providers to automatically and indiscriminately monitor digital correspondence and scan all data for potential child sexual exploitation material (CSAM). This would make all of your communication via chat and email subject to mass surveillance. But the truth is: There are better ways to save the children than putting every EU citizen under constant surveillance, and we have data to prove this.
