Log out for privacy

An image search brought be to Pinterest, which automatically… logged me in to an old account, I didn’t even remember I had. I definitely never logged in on this browser.

They just logged me in without asking. WTF?!

Seems like they use a “Login with Facebook” button as a script that shares cookies with the facebook.com domain, basically giving them access to each other and letting a third-party website know my FB account before I use it to log in!

I’ve stopped using FB over two years ago, removed most of my personal data, and I only go there when I need to contact someone and have no other option.

I’ve only now realised that’s not nearly enough to protect my privacy. FB keeps lurking on you even on unrelated websites.

So I’ve logged out of Facebook. And removed all their cookies. And removed the damn Pinterest account.

And after I move some stuff out of Google ecosystem, I’m going to log out from it as well. They’re even worse at respecting user’s privacy 🤮

All the giants thinking you have a right to track me wherever I go online: fuck you all 🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕
