Plain Text Offenders

Omer van Kloeten, Igal Tabachnik, and Aviem Zur

A website storing a password in plain text means that your password is there, waiting for someone to come and take it. It doesn’t even matter if you’ve created the strongest possible password. It’s just there. Whether it’s someone hacking into their servers, using a simple flaw in their site or even stealing their backups, over 30% of sites store plain text passwords. We’re tired of websites abusing our trust and storing our passwords in plain text, exposing us to danger. Here we put websites we believe to be practicing this to shame.

Surveillance giants: How the business model of Google and Facebook threatens human rights

Amnesty International

Google and Facebook help connect the world and provide crucial services to billions. To participate meaningfully in today’s economy and society, and to realize their human rights, people rely on access to the internet—and to the tools Google and Facebook offer. But Google and Facebook’s platforms come at a systemic cost. The companies’ surveillance-based business model is inherently incompatible with the right to privacy and poses a threat to a range of other rights including freedom of opinion and expression, freedom of thought, and the right to equality and non-discrimination.

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) is a milestone document in the history of human rights.

It sets out, for the first time, fundamental human rights to be universally protected and it has been translated into over 500 languages.
