We’ve all heard stories of bitter exes leaking nude photos to get revenge on a partner. But that won’t necessarily discourage people from taking nudes. Still, couples can make decisions that will help them preserve their privacy rights down the road, Rucker explained.
Most of us have gone on dates with strangers from the internet at some point. But even if you met your date IRL, it’s a good idea to give them a Google Voice number when you start chatting, Rucker says. Google Voice lets users generate phone numbers for free and use them to set up other secure chat services like WhatsApp or Signal. A user can easily turn off her Google Voice number and get a new one if her date turns out to be a creep—and she won’t have to go to the trouble of changing her real number and redistributing it to all her friends.
Both Waters and Ludlam are expected to cede their seats to other Green Party members, as Australia’s parliament system priorities party over individual personality. But there’s no word yet on where that will leave Waters and Ludlam, should they choose to run for office again.
Courts have sometimes viewed all passwords as equal, faulting a victim whose partner hacked her Facebook because she had shared an Amazon password with him. The court questioned whether one password could be considered private, given that she had shared other accounts, Rucker explained. “If you share an iCloud account and you’re sharing pictures that way, you’re sharing accounts in the eyes of the court,” Rucker said.
Sharing devices can also weaken your privacy rights if you end up in court. “You don’t necessarily know how things will end and how they might go bad,” Rucker said. Password-protect your laptop and encrypt your hard drive to make sure your data is safe. If you want to allow your partner to use your laptop, set up a separate account for them rather than letting them log into yours.
“It is with a heavy heart that I am forced to resign as senator for Queensland and co-deputy leader of the Australian Greens, effective today,” she continued.
Abusive spouses have been known to surveil their partners’ online activity. While spouseware –malware that sneakily harvests geolocation, texts, calls, and other information—is an issue, Rucker notes that abusive partners might also track what their significant other is doing on a shared home Wi-Fi network. Using a VPN at home can help keep browsing data private.
Both Waters and Ludlam are coming under fire from rightwing opponents who claim that the two now-former senators should have to repay their salaries.
Queensland’s Mark Ellis dropped out of a race back in April when photos on Facebook revealed him giving a Nazi salute in his backyard with a swastika burned into his lawn. And One Nation’s Senator Malcolm Roberts, who was born in India, tweeted today that he’s never owned a 7-66, adding that he’s “not even a chucker,” apparently in a reference to cricket. Roberts included the hashtag #NotIndian.
