1. Go to the google homepage and sign into your account.

You most probably a google user, and you saw the new highlight announce that they are changing their privacy polices. Many people are not bother to read this punch of complicated polices and notice what exactly changed, maybe some don’t understand what those changes and those polices really mean. Sometime we needed to be simplified and to be told by proper English, don’t we?

It appears that what Google is doing right now, is to have one privacy protocol for all of its products like Gmail, G+, Gmap, Youtube, etc. Before each one of those products has its own privacy protocol, now they are all going to share your information in term of location, sex, content of emails you read, search keyword you use, type of videos you watch, etc. all those information will be collected as a history profile for your google identity online.
و
Google claims that this policy will provide better experience in using google products, and it will help google to understand, for example, if you enter the word “Jaguar” wether you mean the jaguar the animal or the jaguar well known English car. It will also will help Google to provide you proper suggestion, ads that will suite your interests.
و
 Although google promised not to use clients information outside the company, this change of policy made a big fuss. One of the major issues about this polices is that you can’t control it. You, as a google user, must bee affected. However Digital Journal said that doing the the mentioned instructions will save you from storing your web data .. worth of try ?
و
When you click on “Remove all Web History,” a message appears that says ” Web History is Paused.” What this means is that while Google will continue gathering and storing information about your web history it will make all data anonymous, that is, Google will not associate your Web History information with your online accounts and will therefore be unable to send you customized search results.

On Digital Security

Aswat intiative is am awsome place for activist to get more about digital security and acitvism

Digital Security is indeed an important term that online activists are highly recommended to be aware of. Many people are active on the internet, recently people use internet for more than personal browsing. They use it to influence and promote change for certain agenda they believe in. it could be freedom and democracy and it could be something else. it depends on the user himself. Such a development in using the internet specially after the popularity achieved by social media portals made the internet not as safe as before, Therefore “online activists” should pay  as much attention to their security online as much they do offline.

There are many NGOs provide trainings and publications on digital security, sometimes it might be boring specially for those who are not interested in computer stuff but its always good to know how to establish “encrypted” secure connection, how to break censorship, how to send “encrypted” attachment protected with password and alike matters.

I was in related training few days ago and learned that my last blog was been killed by something called “denial of service attack”  it was a great opportunity to learn about this attack and to know how its working. At least now I know how those people who were targeting my blog succeed in their attack and I can be more carful in the future.

Basically, from any cyber activist prospective, who doesn’t care much about technology-related matters “I do by the way” achieving secure environment can be accomplished by downloading some tools like antivirus, firewall, tor, keypass, etc. and use them properly, but of course the much you read about it, the much you attend trainings the better.

#FreeRazan

Its very obvious that each and every single regime in the Arabic countries is corrupted, and it citizens, specially the youth, are living life with less standerds that other people in developed world are living. There is an old quote says “quite, Arabs are a asleep”, well they finally woke up, Arab spiring came to revolute against those regimes and to obtain the freedom which is the simplest right for individuals. The spiring started from the West in Tunisia and reached many countries including Bahrain, the little Island located in the rich spot of oil in the region Arabic/Persian Gulf, and Syria which is ruled by a regime is more closer to Russia, China, Iran than Arabs, USA, and europe as most of the middle eastern regimes.

Razan, Alaa, and Ali

Such a wake, such a wave,  indeed, needs human resources, strong fighters welling to sacrifice for the favor of their nations. those whom we call “activists”. Recently a cyber activist has been arrested on the Syrian borders while she was travelling to Jordan. Her case is already well known and people been very supportive online, and that is the minimum that could be done.

The Syrian Razan met a The Bahraini Ali Abdul Imam and the egyptian Alaa Abdul Fatah, in one if not more than one blogging event, they were working for more freedom, more rights, and for a better region. I assume that no one looked to other religion, sect or questioned if there are any hidden agenda beyond working in such field. Maybe, thats way the three of them were sent to jail.

This post is not to about  the facts of Razan‘s, Alaa‘s, and Ali‘s activism and their arrests, there are already enough articles online, its however to support Razan in the frist place, and to encourage people to take those three activists as good examples. Unfortunately the revolutions now are divided on sectarian basis, no body cares about Bahrain but Iran, Iraq and South Lebanon because they are Shiites, and everybody else cares about Syria revolution because its fully supported by KSA and Qatar! I’m not sure if people stil remember Ali Abdul Imam, and know he’s hiding and don’t see his family! or know about the teachers, lawyers, medical doctors, journalists, students etc that have been arrested and tortured in Bahrain since February till now.

I wish that we have Razan back soon, as well as Ali and Alaa because of they are the true heros whom respect individual’s right regardless of their believes. and god bless the Syrians who are working hard and giving their blood in order to achieve better conditions for their country.
