In May 2018 I tried to properly secure my online accounts for the first time in my life. What happenend since then is incredible criminal: First, people broke into my flat after I communicated the place to hide the key of that flat via a hacked facebook account with a person to whom I subrented my flat whilst being in Australia for a few-month research stay in February-March 2018. Second, my old gmail accounts (anifiebich, anikafiebich, philoemails) did not only get hacked but also the passwords got changed and I have no access anymore until today. When I tried to contact google via email, I received error messages and nobody answered ever the phone. In the meanwhile, a message got through but I have still no access. Third, I had to give up my flat in Milan because of break-ins but people continued to break into my private living places. I had been in Mexico City for a research stay lately and even there the door locks were damaged! A large sum of money got stolen at the end of last year and a number of expensive electric belongs (laptops, mobile phones) got manipulated at different places. I bought a new MacAirbook in May 2018 and I did not manage to make that item secure even though I paid quite a lot money for support from professionals. We live in an incredible cyber-criminal world and I have the deep suspicion that at least part of what happenend to me in the last year has been supported by governmental forces and that my case is an extreme case of how an international cyber-criminal organization tries to prevent people from having their legally justified privacy by various illegal means. (And please don‘t ask me why me – I‘ve seriously no idea, it must be a confusion as I am not secretly working as a spy or creating atom bombs or anything like that, really. All I know is that the broken door locks, manipulated electics, malewares on my electrics and the stolen money are no delusion and that the whole issue is nothing but bothering a private person for no obvious reason. Also I don‘t care about any reasons, all I want is to have my privacy and I wish other people that as well.)


I‘ve never dealt with internet security but now I do. Ask yourself why you need to register for your phone contract with your ID in Germany and whether somebody is listening to your private talks – not even on the phone but also any other things just when the phone is laying next to you. You think the STASI is over? I think the technology to spy inhabitants today is way worse. Ask yourself how apps like whatsapp or skype may access the data on your electrics and how public W-LAN connections open the doors to criminals to access your online accounts. And is it just the public ones? How secure are the login-data of your WLAN connection at home and are they surely not accessible to the government? Maybe better use a VPN tunnel also at home? And how to deal with „IDs“ and „clouds“ and „keychains“? Obviously, people‘s private communication, pictures, writings, research, etc. should stay private and we have fighted for rights along these lines long time ago in human history. Research in communication technology has made huge steps in the last couple of years and has also opened more doors for cybercriminals. So, let us (the folk) just hope those who fight for internet security and rights are likewise successful.
