[Iniziative] [Sorveglianza] Turn off Google's surveillance on meet.jit.si

Ho aperto un bug report al team di Jitsi affinché rimuovano Google Analytics da https:// meet.jit.si

Per seguirne l’evoluzione https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet/issues/4590

Se vi vengono in mente altri software, liberi o opensource, che trattano con altrettanta superficialità dati sensibili degli utenti, potete fare lo stesso (o segnalarmeli in privato se preferite).

Riporto di seguito il testo della issue per comodità.
Come al solito, seguite i link a vostro rischio e pericolo. :wink:
(ovvero, usate precauzioni adeguate)


Turn off Google’s surveillance on meet.jit.si

Description

Even just the name of a chat room might contain sensible data.

Google should not be informed about people joining a chat room, since it might be able to identify them (by relating informations gained across different Web sites or on their own services) and profile their relationship.

Current behavior

Any visit to https://meet.jit.si/ or any chatroom therein informs Google through Google Analytics.

The Referer HTTP Header let Google relate the different members of a chatroom and personal data such as user’s IP and User-Agent let Google actually identify the persons in the chatroom by relating such information with those available on their ubiquitous services.

Expected Behavior

https://meet.jit.si/ doesn’t leak personal info to third party.

The users accept to trust only meet.jit.si and such trust should be honoured.

Possible Solution

Remove

<script async="" src="//www.google-analytics.com/analytics.js"></script>

from the Web pages served under https://meet.jit.si/

Steps to reproduce

Visit https://meet.jit.si/ or any chatroom therein such as https://meet.jit.si/GoogleIsProfilingYouRightNow

Environment details

A logging proxy might be useful.
As an alternative, the DevTools of the browser might suffice.

3 Mi Piace

Per chi fosse interessato, il team di Jitsi mi ha risposto.

E per colmo di sfiga, ho trovato un bug nel workaround che hanno proposto.

Just a quick heads up. We are going to have a discussion about this. I’ll get back to you.

E la storia continua
