[Forbes]Microsoft Can Now Listen In on All My Skype Calls - Page 3

post #21 of 82
This is worrying although I never really use Skype anyways. Just have an account for random calls to family overseas.

If you really want to have a secure connection, just create your own VOIP VPN. Problem solved.

"I don't do anything wrong so who cares!". This is the type of attitude that has gotten us to the point where we have cameras on every street corner and drones flying over our own heads. Wake up America, you are no longer free.

Nor have we been for a very long time now. Unfortunately it's going to get much worse before the populace gets a clue as to what's really going on.

And how un-free we are compared to the vast majority of the developed world.

Many Americans have this idea of all other countries as being arid wastelands under the rule of Tropico-style dictatorships, but a little bit of research would reveal that that is usually not the case. And the US is decidedly less democratic than virtually every other Western nation.

This man knows what's up. (Though I think even underdeveloped areas are more free than us).

OT: LOL thank god I never skype. I always had the fear that if I'm sexy-camming with someone... someone can easily snoop in!

One of the reasons that Skype has grown so swiftly in the last 5 years was the belief by many users that the founders from Luxembourg had taken steps to make the service one of the most locked-down and encrypted services available to communicate with.

The things people write sometimes.
