Does Jennifer Lawrence take privacy seriously? I mean, it would make sense right?
Sadly, JLaw was one of the many stars exposed in the so-called “Fappening,” the awful event where private photos in iCloud services of the stars were raided and released on the internet (and it got weird from there).

Obviously, this kind of post wouldn’t be complete without helpful information about how to keep your digital communications hot. And by “hot” we mean encrypted.
Here’s how: Signal is Open Whisper Systems messenger. It uses end-to-end encryption, which means that each user has a key to their communications, so that while the message is in transit, it’s a garble. End-to-end is becoming more popular. WhatsApp recently adopted Open Whisper System’s security, by default (you can use it for phone calls too). (Photo: Mike Coppola/Getty Images)
Here’s how: Facebook wants to track you across the web, just like Google does. ZDNet has the scoop on telling the company not to. (Photo: Jeff Spicer / Getty Images)
Here’s how: Keybase is a product company founded by some of the team behind OKCupid. It’s building a place for people to store their encryption keys and verify their identity. It’s still invite only, with more than 20,000 people waiting in line for access. (Photo: Vittorio Zunino Celotto/Getty Images)
Here’s how: On Android, Google Maps keeps track of everywhere you go by default. We showed you how to turn it off. (Photo: Jason Merritt/Getty Images)
