New York City just launched a new program called LinkNYC. The program convert obsolete public phones booth into free wifi stations.
My issue with this is privacy, well not just privacy as I can compromise on privacy is more about surveillance.
New York State, NYC and the Federal Government are all notorious for massive widespread surveillance on the civilian population.
And somehow I just can believe or trust that they will have this opportunity to once again snoop on citizens communication and that they will just not abuse it.
I don’t know about you but I will not connect my device to this LinkNYC wifi unless I am at least using a VPN.
