Have you ever gotten an e-mail from a service warning that someone is trying to hack into your account and wondered: Who is doing this to me?
A password manager called LogMeOnce now gives you the option to take a picture of whoever is trying to access the accounts that you’ve registered with its service. It does this by hacking the hacker’s camera, whether that is attached to a computer or mobile device, and secretly taking a photo.
Negotiators from the United States and the European Union recently reached a preliminary deal on the so-called Umbrella Agreement, a transatlantic deal that sets standards for protecting personal data when it is transferred for law enforcement purposes. However, one key hurdle remains before the agreement will get sign off: the U.S. must grant a right to remedy for E.U. citizens who suffer privacy violations (a right that already exists in the E.U. for U.S. citizens in similar circumstances). It remains to be seen whether the U.S. will follow through on providing that protection, and whether it will be meaningful enough to meet E.U. standards.
