What happens in 20 years when you need a new car and all of them have connectivity, even the oldest second hand ones?



Oh yeah I do that by default, if the URL is too long with random stuff at the end I remove what I can without breaking the link


I have no idea how to clean a URL and honestly I’m not interested in cleaning every URL I send.


Uhm, yeah why are we even comparing the two? Definitely isn’t a discussion. Signal is superior


Are you running Lineage on a Samsung? I have an a34 and I’m trying to find a custom ROM


Agreed, this is the only way. Multiple accounts for an elderly person is not going to work.

Thunderbird, and unsubscribe to everything that enters. That’ll cut your spam in half at least



Ahh imagine carrying on one side for too long, the back pain…

Maybe I could also look into hiring someone to carry the setup for me, that way I can have even more peace of mind knowing I’m protecting my health and my data! /s


It would give me enough time to remotely wipe the device before they can remove the SIM would it not?


Uhm, I don’t care about the device or the SIM card?.. I care about my data, and I care about remotely wiping the device before they can try access the device if they are even trying to access it in the first place?

Sure they can turn it off, but if I activate the command to wipe the device the command will execute as soon as the device is powered on.

This is not the case if they remove the SIM. If they remove the SIM the connect is lost and the device can remain on and be tampered with, with my data still entact.

I don’t “keep asking for proof” I literally asked in one comment? You seem very angry about people asking questions online, maybe you should do some introspection or something idk


I have a SIM pin… how does having a SIM pin stop them from taking the device offline by removing the SIM?..


Not in my country lol, they’re not that smart

This is the best tip so far. Thank you so much!


I’m on a Samsung A34 using a passphrase to unlock, I’m not sure it gets stronger than that? Unless there’s something I’m missing

Source? Because I have many videos as evidence showing thieves throw SIM cards out of the window of their escape vehicle, so that seems to be the common one here

Amazing, thank you! I think the super glue option will be best. The phone is water resistant as well so I don’t see the isopropyl being an issue to try loosen the super glue.


Exactly this. I’m looking to buy time not to completely bar access


This is amazing! Thank you, I will definitely be painting it closed.


This is also true, maybe there’s another non permanent way of doing this? I only need the SIM card in the device when it’s stolen long enough for me to remotely wipe the device


True, but in my country and in my experience the first thing they do is remove the SIM card so that you can’t track it, if it’s an android which it is in my case.

I’ve got a secure password and no details on the lock screen but I’d just like to try protect myself even more


Not a bad idea actually. I do have a work phone which I could hand over but if I get frisked they’ll find the personal phone anyways


Thanks for the response. I have a Samsung A34. I don’t think keeping accounts off of my phone would work for me, it’s my most central place for everything which I know is risky, but it’s better than having everything on my work computer which could get searched or taken at any point


Should I glue my SIM tray shut?
I know it's an odd question, but where I live phones get stolen often. My phone doesn't have the option for an eSim, which is a problem because 90% of the time when a thief steals a phone they take out the SIM card immediately, meaning I wouldn't be able to remotely lock or wipe my phone. Should I consider glueing the SIM tray shut? Or are there alternative less permanent measures I can take to keep my device secure?

How are you shocked? LastPass is trash


I honestly don’t use the search function. Our work emails are through gmail so that’s what I primarily use, my personal email doesn’t really have too much going on there so I don’t really need to do any advanced searching, filters, etc
