We should make a website called something like:

"ihavenothingtohide.com"

It's just a web crawler that shows you everything you have ever posted on all your accounts and hopefully shows embarrassing posts first.

    @runfrodorun Well pretty much all tools can be used as weapons, but I see your point. I still think it might be worth it though

    That's what I call an awesome fun project!

    Count me in :)

    Wonder to what authorities that service could be reported, good luck

    Thought you could search names and usernames on google for that

    Look up a program called creepydol πŸ˜€

    Btw, I’m in πŸ‘ŒπŸΌπŸ˜€

    @linuxxx you will love this project πŸ˜€

    @gitpush Although I love the idea, I am torn between this idea and @runfrodorun's comment...
  • 6
    @linuxxx I think both this and https://devrant.com/rants/963500/... are the same highcaliber of stupid, which latter you supported and said something into the direction of "that'll teach em'", none of those ideas are great nor should exist, this praising is retarded from everyone in both threads considering, they would shit the bed if somebody would dox them.
  • 5
    @linuxxx not even mentioning how illegal that is and how that is exactly what you are constantly standing against "dutch gov. spying, google spying, everyone spying" "oh hey doxing is cool", please explain this irony.

    @JoshBent Its existed for a long time. When WhatsApp was growing like hell a few years before the fb takeover, they didn't even use a secure connection in the beginning. Hell, telegram uses self signed certs for their 'secure' connections.

    There's a big difference between doxing someone through a public site and using an insecure messenger.

    I think people have to find out about that stuff somehow, if necessary, forced.

    @JoshBent If its obtained through publicly available data, its not illegal as far as I know.

    @linuxxx one thing is MITM (fucking asshole whatsapp devs anyway, if thats even remotely true) other one is publicly publishing all conversations, which is anyway atleast in the EU highly illegal.

    Both laying open conversations via app/website ("HA! mama get the camera, I am anonymous and those people don't know how hard they got trolled, that'll teach them" - kinda thing) and creating easily accessible dox archives is the most fucking retarded idea I heard in a while.

    @linuxxx its a gray area if you describe it that way, but after first incidents happen and the info got obtained through that service? βœ‹ wave goodbye.
  • 3
    @linuxxx its just the ridicilous fact that you don't like exactly any of both happening, but give loud acceptance when its a spawn of a 14 year old to "teach those noobs".
  • 2
    @linuxxx the problem is in both cases goodbye privacy 😞

    I like the concept. I'm in. ☺️

    the evil version of it would be

    theyhavenothingtohide.onion where you can buy data

    I'm totally with @JoshBent here.
    It is just so ridiculous to see people constantly bitching about Dutch government, NSA or Google, but as soon as someone proposes such a project on devRant to "show them how dangerous this is" or "teach 'em a lesson" or for "the greater good", the exact same people are hyped and in.

    I don't know about the Dutch government but I know that the "Vorratsdatenspeicherung" in Germany (and EU) is supposed to be used against internet crimes and terrorism. I don't like that the stuff exists, mainly because I think that it doesn't really help to fight terrorism and because the government could, at some point, use it for political purposes.
    But, at that is the point I want to make here: there intentions are (official version) good. They want to use it to fight crimes and terrorism.

    So, if you are bitching about those things, which have officially a good intention, then you cannot be hyped for this project just because YOU think that it is morally correct.

    But it's all "display: hidden;" as a punch.

    @Noob I have a "working! Free! No credit card!" Version hosted here:

    Http://0.0.0.0

    I think we already have something similar called Facebook's "on this day".
    And I can say, I don't want to see the deeds of my stupid past consciousness again.

    @DelError Maybe the german govt has good intentions but for example the USA govt with their surveillance, I refuse to believe that their system is setup for good intentions.

    I find this idea good for the purpose of education but it shouldn't be put into the open in the way described here. You could make something privacy respecting which teaches people more about online privacy possibly?

    @linuxxx Sounds like a good prospect, I'm waiting for a collab post to discuss further details @ewpratten
  • 4
    @JoshBent See my comment down below, slightly adjusted my opinion :)

    @linuxxx saw that message just now, good job on actually not just blindly rushing through a wall, props.
  • 3
    @chilledfrogs what do you want to discuss?
  • 3
    @ewpratten Well if you wanna follow through with the project, then post a devRant collab link here and I'll look into it, that's all 😁
  • 3
    @JoshBent Thanks! Also what does props mean? πŸ˜…
  • 4
    @linuxxx its like a synonym for "respect" I would say.

    definition:
    praise, compliments. One usually "gives" props.

    late Middle English: probably from Middle Dutch proppe ‘support (for vines)’.

    @runfrodorun is so right.
    this tool would shit on privacy even more than those people do.
    it is harmful for people who do give a fuck.

    Let’s make it a devRant community project. I’d love to contribute.

    I've seen this done as a marketing stunt a few times, tho they just load public stuff from FB or Google... I think Ubi did it for Watchdogs. It could be a cool project if taken to the extreme... But probably also horrifying.

    Great idea and agree with it being used to prove a point.
  • 3
    Or skip all programming and show a naked photo/video of ourselves 😳
  • 1
    And add laws so people have no rights to take them down and programmers can say whatever they want and get away with it
  • 2
    I'm in. Maybe couple the content to the own fb-profile so you can access only your own profile?

    For sale lol
