Does someone have remote access to your phone? Can they access your cameras without you knowing, and see everything you do on the device? How would you know if they could?

There are hundreds of spyware apps that can be used to spy or track people without their knowledge. It's often called "Stalkerware". Sometimes these apps are targeted towards nervous parents who want to keep tabs on their children for their safety. But other times it’s a controlling domestic partner who installs the spyware.

Not only is Stalkerware an extreme violation of trust, but it's also incredibly dangerous, because the spyware company itself also gets access to all the sensitive information on the phone.

We dive into different types of stalkerware, how to detect it, and what to do if you find any on your device. We’ll also give some tips to beef up your phone security to prevent this stuff from being installed in the first place.

VPNs are often considered an essential part of your toolkit if you want to live a modern, privacy-conscious lifestyle... but most computer security experts will tell you that they're not tools for privacy AT ALL!
When you use a consumer VPN, the VPN company is able to see everything you’re doing. Many log and even sell all of your data. And even if they promise not to, it’s difficult to verify.

But that doesn't mean we need to avoid commercial VPNs altogether -- there can be good reasons to use one.
For example, if you're on public wifi at an airport or coffee shop, or if you want to spoof your location.

But not all VPNs are created equally, and a big piece of evaluating a VPN provider is understanding how they make their money and how responsibly they handle data.

In this video, I go over how VPNs work, when to use them, and criteria for choosing a good one.

00:00 - Intro
01:04 - How VPNs Work
01:14 - Why use a VPN?
03:10 - Criteria for a VPN
08:04 - Recommended VPNs

VPNs do have their place in your privacy toolkit - just make sure you are using them correctly!

Charles Hoskinson is best known as the creator of Cardano, a top 4 cryptocurrency that has been comfortably in the top 10 for a while now.

But before that, he was a co-founder of Ethereum, he was part of BitShares with Dan Larimer, and he was the creator of the Bitcoin Education Project.

Back in 2014, long before Ethereum had even launched, I first met and interviewed Charles, at a conference in Toronto. Now 7 years later, we reconnected in Mexico at the Satoshi Roundtable, and dived into everything that's happened since then. Cardano's meteoric rise, Ethereum's success, and the shift of Bitcoin culture.

Thanks for chatting with me, Charles!

Credit cards are a notoriously insecure means of payment and credit card fraud is one of the most common types of identity theft in the US. We give out our credit card number constantly without even thinking about it, and with it our name and home address.

Enter Virtual Credit Cards: they're like a VPN for your credit card. No more revealing private information to every stranger from whom you want to make a purchase. No more handing out the keys to the kingdom that allow anyone to draw money from your account.

Crypto is my preferred means of payment because you retain sovereignty over your money, you can have much better financial privacy, and you can save a bunch of money if you use services like Purse.io, Bitrefill, and Dash Direct.
BUT...
Some people are not yet ready to take the plunge completely into crypto. So if you enjoy the world of recurring payments and credit card purchases but are looking for a more private option, VIRTUAL credit cards may be for you!

In this video, Josh Summers from “All Things Secured” explains how virtual credit cards work and why they're great for giving back some privacy and control over your money.

00:00 - Intro
00:55 - What are Virtual Credit Cards

In this digital realm there are lots of scammers who will try to pick your digital pockets, so you need to learn to be street smart. Here are some BIG scams to watch out for, which I have either seen personally or have had close friends fall victim to.

As a general rule, never give out your private information, passwords or account numbers out to anyone who calls you unannounced - no matter who they claim to be!

In this video we’ll give you the best ways to know your enemy and protect yourself:

00:00 - Intro
00:56 - Giveaways
01:54 - Don't trust the "celebrities"
02:34 - Popular email phishing scams
03:11 - DON'T CLICK ON THE LINK
04:32 - Your phone number is PUBLIC
05:27 - SCAM: Appeals to authority
06:00 - The FAMILY TRAGEDY scam
06:42 - How well do you know that person you're chatting to online?
07:11 - Grooming
07:59 - 2FA
08:26 - Vaults
08:44 - Passwords (watch https://youtu.be/wPQrLkHLWJ4 for good password hygiene!)

I will NEVER contact you to offer advice, counseling, or free crypto and neither will any REAL person. Scammers can do LOTS of damage, so be vigilant and share this information with your family, especially those who may be older or less comfortable in the digital realm!

More and more people are waking up to why financial privacy is so important, and just how invasive the traditional banking system is.

Many cryptocurrencies, even though they give you back control over your money, are actually pretty bad for privacy, and can expose your full transaction history and holdings to everyone.

That’s where Privacy coins come in.
This is the first of many videos exploring various privacy coins and how they can bring anonymity back into your life -- We're starting with Zcash

Did you know that when you share a photo online, you might be revealing the exact location of your home? Or that when you print a document, there are hidden dots on the page that reveal the exact printer the document came from?

Metadata is data about data. It's attached to EVERY digital artifact, and when you share a digital file, you're probably revealing a lot more information than intended.

How do you find this metadata and erase it? We'll teach you in this video.

Search engines completely revolutionized how we access the web. If you want to find a website, you can type in keywords and search engines will show you a list of websites that match your criteria.

But your searches can reveal a lot of private information about you: your interests, location, medical conditions, political affiliation.

Google has 90% of the market share for searches, and they track everything you do. This gives them a deep, granular insight into who you are, and this is information that they sell.

Search engines are also an effective tool for controlling what information people have access to, and there are many studies that look at how search engines influence the behavior of users by filtering out some search results and prioritizing others.

Luckily there are many ways you can protect your privacy and take back control over your quests for information. Sometimes you sacrifice the quality of your search results by doing this, but other times you’d be surprised at how good alternative results are.

We look at the following privacy-focused browsers:

5:00 - DuckDuckGo
6:56 - MetaGer
8:00 - SearX
9:15 - Qwant
10:17 - StartPage
11:57 - Mojeek
13:01 - YaCy
14:24 - Brave Search

Always assess your personal risk and threat-level when choosing a search engine, and remember that taking small steps to minimize your internet footprint can go a long way in protecting your privacy!

Now that you've gotten into crypto, what do you DO with your crypto?

Many people are building their savings in cryptocurrencies that can't be debased, in preparation for potential future economic upheaval.

But there are some who argue that this day of upheaval is already here:
- We have a financial system where you have to ask permission to use your own money, and payments can be blocked
- Where every time you swipe your card your purchases are tracked & monitored.
- Where any savings that you do leave in fiat in your bank account are losing value fast.

So for this reason, more and more people are choosing not to have any money in fiat at all. They convert all their savings to crypto, and then live entirely off that crypto.

As part of my beginner’s guide to using crypto everyday, I spent a day with Joël Valenzuela to find out how he lives 100% on crypto:
How does he buy groceries? Pay rent? Buy from major chains that don't accept crypto? Manage volatility?

His answers are really helpful for anyone ready to take the plunge!

Snowden once tweeted:
"I wouldn't use WiFi at home, because global maps of every wireless access point's unique ID—including yours—are free and constantly updated. I would use ethernet; yes, ethernet on a phone."

A while ago I made a video that explained why you should never turn your phone into a hotspot, and why wifi is less secure than a wired ethernet connection. It was shocking to me how much data we're sending out via radio-waves without realizing.

The video went viral with over a MILLION views! And there have been so many FANTASTIC questions and comments that I felt it warranted a follow up response video. This new video also updates, clarifies and corrects some information that was not 100% explained the first time around.

Apple plans to modify iPhones to constantly scan for contraband.

I'm joined by Matthew Green, the renowned security expert and cryptography professor who first broke the story about Apple's new plan to roll our photo scanning on iPhones. We discuss the descent of Apple from being a bastion of privacy advocacy to descending into a dangerous realm of surveillance overreach.

As Ross Anderson, professor of security engineering, said,
“It is an absolutely appalling idea, because it is going to lead to distributed bulk surveillance of our phones and laptops.”

Earning crypto is one of the best ways to get involved, and these platforms are a good way to start integrating it into your daily life.

If you’re new to crypto it can be really confusing to try to understand what all these different cryptocurrencies do. Are there different use cases? Are the ones with the best memes the most important? This video is part of a beginner’s guide to using crypto everyday.

Our lives and day-to-day activities have largely moved onto our digital devices. But this new digital landscape is filled with people trying to monitor these activities and figure out exactly what we’re doing on our devices.

What if we don’t want all of our online activity to be viewable by strangers?

I decided to see if it were possible to set up new apple devices that weren’t tied to my identity in any way – that were completely anonymous. And I found the more private I wanted to be... the less convenient it was.

Some quick tips:
Use cash
Beware of iCloud
Disable Siri
NEVER remember wifi networks!

I chose Apple products for this video because they're mainstream, and will go over some other private solutions in other videos.

One resource I highly recommend if you’re interested in extreme privacy is a fantastic book by Michael Bazzel called “Extreme Privacy: What It Takes to Disappear”

In the past few months, Bitcoin soared to more than $64,000, then crashed back below $30,000, but where is it going next?

Are we in for another bear cycle lasting years, or are we going to the moon? To figure that out, we have to look at what caused the recent run up.

Brian Brooks is the former Acting Comptroller of the Currency, and current CEO of Binance.US, so he has a particularly insightful perspective that bridges the worlds of traditional finance and crypto.

Renowned economist, George Selgin, is a Senior Fellow and Director of the Cato Institute's Center for Monetary and Financial Alternatives.

I chat to them both about what's going on with the US dollar money supply right now, and how that might affect your bitcoin holdings.

E-mail remains an essential backbone of internet communication, with over 4 billion users worldwide. But is it private? Actually it's inherently insecure. Furthermore, the vast majority of users rely on free online email services. Did you know that they use AI algorithms to scan your emails in order to learn more about you? Or that emails are stored in the clear, meaning in the event of a hack, all your emails would be leaked? Do you know what Metadata is and how much is collected by your email provider?

In this video, we go over what makes a good private email service and provide you with valuable suggestions for safer alternatives than the big names you are used to.

There is no one-size-fits-all answer for email, as it depends on your own threat model. But moving away from that old gmail or yahoo account is a GREAT place to start.

Amazon Sidewalk has launched! But how secure is it?

As of today, owners of Ring security cameras and Alexa devices are contributing a small portion of their internet bandwidth to create a network that makes it so devices stay connected further away from a home router and remain online when local Wi-Fi goes down.

Sounds great for home security, but what about privacy? It means Amazon can stay connected to you AT ALL TIMES. And everyone with an Amazon device is automatically opted-IN by default. Millions of people will now be co-opted into the program whether they know anything about it or not. It's also worth noting that fmr NSA director Keith Alexander now works on the board of Amazon.

As always, your privacy choices are your own preference, but you should ALWAYS be aware when people are collecting your data so that you can make informed decisions. But if you are privacy conscious, you might want to Opt out of Sidewalk!

Outrage sparked after a Ryanair flight was forced to make an emergency landing in Belarus this week, so that authorities could arrested an opposition activist on board. The orders to arrest journalist, Roman Protasevich, came directly from Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko.

US and EU officials have condemned the actions calling it "outrageous and illegal behavior” and some are even calling it “unprecedented”.

The government’s attack on the media in Belarus is disgraceful. However, some of the very same figures who are now outraged at Belarus are conveniently forgetting their own actions just eight years ago when the US and EU conspired to ground a plane carrying the President of Bolivia in order to conduct a search for Edward Snowden.

I’d like their pro “freedom of the press” narrative more if it were actually sincere, but while Julian Assange is still behind bars, it’s hard to believe that the Biden administration and US pundits have suddenly embraced dissident journalists and information freedom.

The story of the $400,000,000 Pizza! (or $380,000,000 to be precise...)

Eleven years ago today, Laszlo Hanyecz made what would become one of the most famous food purchases of all time, and now today will forever be known as Bitcoin Pizza Day.

Hanyecz asked an online forum if anyone would be willing to send him 2 large pizzas in exchange for 10,000 Bitcoins.

Jeremy Sturdivant took the offer, and it was the first exchange of real world goods for Bitcoin in history.

Some say both men were ultimately fools for not holding onto those 10,000 Bitcoin.

Others recognize that this exchange grounded bitcoin’s price in terms of real world goods for the first time ever, and became a catalyst for greater adoption. We finally had a money that was uncensorable, peer-to-peer, permissionless, and you could actually use it in your every day life to buy things.

It was a revolution, covered in marinara sauce.

Happy Bitcoin Pizza Day, everyone!
And thank you Hanyecz and Sturdivant for helping ignite what quickly became a full fledged crypto revolution!

Our whole lives are in our phones. We’re addicted to feeding them data about ourselves, and we take them with us everywhere we go. But Snowden says they’re tracking devices.

2:27 – You think your phone is really in airplane mode? The results from their experiment may surprise you!

4:32 – Then Bunnie went even further and decided to build from scratch a device he could actually trust.
