One person's internet junk is another person's treasure
By Larry Magid That expression, "one person's junk is another person's treasure" could certainly be applied to the internet. But when it comes to some controversial content, I'd go a step further to say "one person's sewer is another person's rose garden."  What some people consider to be legitimate political opinions, others call hate speech […]

Gmail Anti-Phishing Technology Looks Promising
By Larry Magid Phishing is one of the internet's biggest security risks. That's when a scammer sends you an email that appears to come from a legitimate source, like your bank or a government agency. There's usually a link for you to click that takes you to a website that may look exactly like the real one, but it's designed to trick you into providing information — such as log-in credentials — that can be used for a number of nefarious purposes. Phishing attacks are often part of financial crimes, to get access to your bank accounts, credit cards, or other ways to separate you from your money. But they can also be used to hack an organization or even a political campaign. They are extremely dangerous and far too effective, which is one of the reasons I urge people not to click on links that come via email, especially if they lead to a site that asks you to log-in with confidential credentials. Instead, type in what you know to be the real address of the site and double-check by looking at the address bar to make sure it's the correct URL.  If you bank at Chase, for example, [...]

Facial recognition loses support as bias claims rise
This post first appeared in the Mercury News by Larry Magid Following the lead of San Francisco, Boston and several other cities, Detroit is poised to end a contract with a company that provides facial recognition technology to its police department. And it's not just cities that are backing away from the technology. In the wake of protests for racial justice, IBM, Microsoft and Amazon are now denying police departments access to their facial recognition technology. In June, Robert Williams, who is Black, "was wrongfully arrested because of a false face recognition match," according to a complaint filed by the American Civil Liberties Union of Michigan. The ACLU said that Williams was handcuffed on his front lawn "in front of his wife and two terrified girls, ages two and five," and detained overnight. In an op-ed for the Washington Post, Williams said that police, investigating a crime, "showed me a blurry surveillance camera photo of a black man and asked if it was me. I chuckled a bit. ‘No, that is not me.'" He showed me another photo and said, ‘So I guess this isn't you either?'" I picked up the piece of paper, put it next to my face [...]

Avoiding negativity in social media and TV
by Larry Magid This post first appeared in the Mercury News These days, it's almost impossible to avoid distressing news, but there are ways to at least control your media diet and cut down on trolls, abusers, scam artists, and negativity on social media. Controlling media is simple. Step away from your TV or computer. I used to watch a great deal of cable news and I still watch some, but I mostly avoid it these days because the constant reiteration of sad news triggers me in ways that just increase my fear and anxieties without providing me with actionable information. I still go to lots of news sites during the day, watch one or two broadcast network news shows, and tip into cable programming, so I'm getting all the news I need without drowning in it.  I also try to tune into important briefings by my own governor and sometimes others and — if there is a White House briefing — I try to focus on what the experts — not the politicians — are saying. If the president says anything newsworthy, I'll hear about it later. I'm also trying to cut down on my consumption of talking heads [...]

Read Along by Google app helps children learn to read
? by Larry Magid This post first appeared in the Mercury News In 2018, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced that the company would appoint a content oversight board to act as the final decision maker when it comes to content moderation decisions. Like the U.S. Supreme Court, the board wouldn't look at all decisions, but a small selection that rise to the top, perhaps because they affect a great many people or because they are particularly thorny. Also, like the Supreme Court, the board's decisions are meant to be final. Even Zuckerberg can't override the board. On Wednesday, the newly formed oversight board announced its first 20 members and briefed the press on how it plans to operate. The roster of members reads like a Who's Who of international luminaries, including the former (and first woman) Prime Minister of Denmark, Helle Thorning-Schmidt. Other members include Nobel Peace Prize laureate Tawakkol Karman from Yemen; Pakistan's Nighat Dad, founder, Digital Rights Foundation; several law professors and other high level individuals from around the world. You can learn more about the board and its members at OversightBoard.com. At the press briefing, Facebook's policy director Brent Harris said "Facebook will implement the board's decisions [...]

TikTok adds parental controls and disables direct messaging for users under 16
TikTok, the popular app that allows users to share short (typically 15 second) videos announced Family Pairing to give parents greater control over their teen's safety setting. The feature, which could be very useful for families with younger teens, allows parents to link their TikTok account with their teen's to control time management, restrict potentially inappropriate content and turn off their teen's ability to exchange direct messages with other users. Starting On April 30th, TikTok will automatically disable direct messaging for users under 16. In a blog post, TikTok's Turst & Safety officer, Jeff Collins, said the company is "advancing our commitment to building for the safety of our users by introducing Family Pairing, which allows parents and teens to customize their safety settings based on individual needs. " According to Collins, the new Family Pairing, will enable parents to: Control how long your teen can spend on TikTok each day. Limit the appearance of content that may not be appropriate for all audiences. Restrict who can send messages to the connected account, or turn off direct messaging completely Collins said that the company has partnered with "top creators to make short videos that appear right in the app and encourage users [...]

Apple and Google building automated Covid-19 contact tracing technology
You may have heard about the technology developed jointly by Apple and Google to automate contact tracing to help alert people who may have been in proximity to someone infected with COVID-19. It uses Bluetooth to automatically exchange an anonymous identification key between two people who are near each other. If one person is later diagnosed with COVID-19, they can share that information through an app without revealing their name, location or other personal information,and the app will anonymously notify people who have been near them. The companies aren't developing apps, but an application program interface (API) that will make it possible for others to develop apps. They also plan to build this technology into their operating systems, but the companies won't be doing the tracing. They'll leave that to public health authorities. The technology uses Bluetooth Low Energy to communicate an anonymous key that doesn't contain location or any other identifying information. How it would work Two people come into close contact with each other and their phones exchange this key. Neither is given any information about that other person and no information is shared with authorities -not even their locations. If one of those people is later confirmed [...]

How to keep ‘zoombombers' from disrupting your online meetings or classes
by Larry Magid As you may have heard, several school districts, including New York City, are banning the use of Zoom video conferencing because of security and privacy concerns. But — while no platform is 100% hack-proof, Zoom does offer tools that can protect your online meetings or class sessions from intruders. Zoom was designed to be used mostly by businesses, including large companies with IT departments. And their documentation seems to be written for professionals, not regular folks. So here is a simplified guide to protecting your sessions on Zoom. After multiple media reports about "Zoombombing" and other abuses by uninvited participants at meetings, personal video chats and online classes, Zoom CEO  Eric Yuan apologized in a blog post  said "we recognize that we have fallen short of the community's - and our own - privacy and security expectations," and then announced a number of changes, including turning on most privacy settings as the default.  Still, you should check you Zoom settings and make sure they're to your liking. You might want to turn on or leave on some privacy settings or relax others, depending on your needs and concerns. There are three places where you can set controls. [...]

How to protect your Zoom Meetings from Zoombombing & unwelcome participants
NOTE A NOTE: Use a unique ID for large or public Zoom calls Require a meeting password Create an invite-only meeting Lock a meeting once it starts Remove attendees or put them on hold Keep Disable File Transfer settings active Zoom Meeting hosts have control over who can come into their meetings and — at any time during a meeting — can mute, turn off video or remove any person. There are two ways to conduct a meeting. You can click "host a meeting" from the upper right corner of your Zoom screen or you can Schedule a meeting. If you select Host the meeting starts right away. You can change some settings and evict or silence participants later (see below), but it's better to create rules in advance by scheduling the meeting. If you select Schedule a meeting, you get a screen with a number of options. If you scroll down, you'll see some of the security options including the meeting ID, the ability to require and set a meeting password,  whether the host or participants video is on or off, whether participants can joint before host, muting participants upon entry and enable waiting room       Some of [...]

For millions of us, the internet has become our lifeline. If we have kids whose schools are doing telelearning, it's become their classroom. Through video chat services like Google Hangouts, Zoom, Skype and Facetime, it's become the way we get together with friends and family. My wife and I attended our monthly book club online last week and hung out with our adult children.
