Prying/preying eyes and ears a problem?
I had a source tell me today that he uses Hushmail to communicate with people who are under surveillance in a hostile digital environment. Not advisable. I sent him this link to the Electronic Frontier Foundation’s terrific Secure Messaging Scorecard (via Wickr encrypted chat).
Below is a a screenshot of a portion of the scorecard. Thumbs up to Jitsi (My preference for secure audio chats)! Thumbs down to Hushmail.
And while we’re promoting the organization _ EFF senior attorney Hanni Fakhoury, a Californian of Egyptian descent, told me it has doubled its staff in the past four years _ I will link to its handy Surveillance Self-Defense guide, available in English, Spanish and Arabic and coming soon, says Hanni, Portuguese.
