This is not a third party review of the effectiveness of this product.

Since they only supply devices to law enforcement, I doubt anyone will find such a review, but I don't think that means we should believe the product doesn't work, at least in theory it sounds quite feasible to me. There is some information available online given by law enforcement saying that the product does work, personally I think this is enough that we should believe it does work.

Yes this one is from the manufacturer but it does have more detail in how the device helped in individual cases if you are to believe what they say:

Are you implying the post title is inaccurate? If so how?

Did you read the article? It doesn't matter if you have encryption, they can break it in under a day.

I thought if the device was off, or just booted, or in lockdown mode, then biometrics could not be used without entering the password first?

And android only allows up to a 16 character password for some reason...

Welp, encryption is optional boys and girls.

Does this thing happen often enough to foreign travellers to make it worth leaving your main devices behind? Yes.

I think we have very different definitions of "often"

I am critically examining your responses and I believe that you are making personal attacks.

The source code of the frontend is unrelated to the webserver they use, which can absolutely store your IP.

maintaining a full blown FOSS project and community, especially a browser, is a lot of work. most people likely give up pretty fast

we can disagree on the definition of modern.

my ubuntu 22 AWS VM only got 6.2 in september, and I haven't rebooted yet so it's still on 5.15. probably tons of desktops and servers are still using < 6.2


Tried to use several different API endpoints as described in the link, but they all return 403 with a cloudflare "Just a moment..." html reply. Even tried copying an existing jwt token from a working logged-in browser but the same thing still happens.

Any idea what I could be doing wrong?

curl -v --request POST \
     --url \
     --header 'accept: application/json' \
     --header 'content-type: application/json' \
     --data '{"username_or_email": "redacted", "password": "redacted"}'
< HTTP/2 403
<!DOCTYPE html><html lang="en-US"><head><title>Just a moment...</title>

I am noticing that some comments, which are coming from users on other verified (via /instances) federated instances, do not show up on a post. For example:

Does not show this comment on it:

Any ideas why? I checked the modlog and the comment wasn't removed, and their post history to me does not look like someone that is likely to be banned from the instance, so I'm not sure what else it could be.


My lemmy account is on the instance but I use newsboat for RSS reading of some communities, along with browsing the local homepage of and some other instances in a regular browser. Is there a way to do either of these things from the instance so that I can easily comment on posts without having to manually locate the same post by browsing to /c/[email protected] on my own instance?
