This episode was originally recorded and released on July 9th, 2021. This week I’m covering: a call to ban surveillance-based advertising, Wickr gets acquired by Amazon, Gettr is riddled with bugs and security issues, and Google delays blocking cookies in Chrome until 2023.

Sources mentioned in today's show:

  1. A letter sent to the EU and US governments to ban surveillance-based advertising
  2. Secure chat app Wickr was acquired by Amazon
  3. GETTR is a buggy, leaky Twitter clone with huge privacy and security holes
  4. Google delays blocking third-party cookies in Chrome until 2023
