Never forget who’s watching you with this handy new browser extension.
It changes the privacy options of each post to “Friends and ASIO”, “Only Me and ASIO”, “Custom (Must include ASIO)” and more.
The Abbott government’s proposed metadata retention laws mean that everyone down to even CentreLink will be able to read all your metadata.
The text of a Facebook post might not technically be included in its metadata (although the text of a tweet is). However that shouldn’t be very comforting because the people who wrote the metadata proposals can’t even define what metadata is.
And anyway, ASIO now has the power to spy the entire internet with only one warrant, minimal independant oversight, and the power to imprison anyone for up to 10 years if they leak acurate corruption claims.
So if you don’t want to forget how safe the government is making you, download the extension.
