Listen: Epic Games Responds to Privacy Concerns About its Store
"Genuine complaint that launched epic game store scans makes an encrypted copy of the local configure dot V F. Steam file he writes, we only import your steam friends with your explicit permission. The launcher makes encrypted local copy of your local configured that media. Steam file over information from his file it's only sent to epic. If you choose to import your steam friends, and then only hash ID's of your friends are sent and no other information from the file. Users have been asking why they would need to import this information. Anyway, given us theme includes API's that allow other applications access the sort of data without scanning files in folders is response to go over particularly. Well. But yeah. Now, he doesn't while you might not agree with Chinese decision on his topic. There's a hard time arguing at the logic in world or Facebook deliberately shares private and personal information on tens of millions of people companies that should never should have been allowed to see in the first place. The idea scanning single file for list of friends, you won't even upload. Without permission would constitute a privacy violation is pretty laughable comparison. So there is as far as we can tell no evidence that EPA game stories spying on people or performing untold PC monitoring. Rarely the author would love to end the story about a discussion of how frustration with epochs policies might be assigned. Silicon Valley would start to consider user privacy more seriously, take more steps to security to secure it but on so he's not feeling that optimistic. But. Yeah. Hey, go. What are your thoughts? I mean, I have a game store. I don't really care. What's it gonna do? Nothing softer in approve ac- Laden world. What do you do? But disconnect I I just figured out the problem to guys. Here's the best way to remain completely. Anonymous disconnected in have all of your privacy remained intact. You know that Ethernet cable that's on the back. Port of your computer. If your hardware it into the internet on plug it. Or if you're connected to wifi pull out the wifi card from your computer snap in half. And then new Betty any access any of your information anywhere. Now, you know downside will suck that you won't have any access to the internet in information at you make available to people because he signed a terms and conditions and never read it. But that's on you. But now it's not anymore because you took control back. You don't have any interest. Do I get my point across getting my point? If I'm not let me know if I am let me know. I'd love to continue discussion. All privacy stuff is actually making it kinda stupid, these poor AI software and all this stuff where anyways, I'm getting off topic. Like, I'm super excited about AI and everything that encompasses it moving forward, but dealing with this whole privacy stuff on some level. If just becoming really borderline stupid, they found out I checked into this place today doing have my permission to do that. Yeah. They do you checked in on it in a public location. In public a smartphone connected to the internet that you set to public. Gosh. I didn't have my permission to know yet. They did you gave them permission. If you seriously don't know, this would be a great time to go look at the terms and conditions of the sites that you're signing up for for free. That's what the trade office excited for free. Your information will be used. It'd be encrypted will be kept safe. But it will be used"
