Moved here 31 years ago to escape all the rules and regulation of the USA. Never visited Singapore as it has too many rules and regulations. Slowly but surely this has all changed. Now we have as many or more stupid rules and laws here. All since the Army took over. The Thai citizens are waking up to this as well. Something brown and stinky is going to hit the wall in the near future. Since time began the Thai's have had a healthy disregard for petty rules, well they are not even petty rules anymore. Watch out Army boys, its going to happen..

You can literally type in any name you want, and a random number for your id and it will still log you in. I really doubt it is catching any criminals.

I predict a new scam by the RTP, walking into a cafe with Wifi. asking them for the wifi log files over the last 90 days. As most cafe / bar or coffeeshop holders don't have any knowledge how to get it they will make an "arrest" but this all can be solved with a "cup of tea" paid by the manager !!!!

I am not an IT expert and I wonder, if those log files show anything of interest to the police, if someone browses in a coffee using a VPN installed in his phone or notebook/tablet.  Does the log file simply show that he connected with the VPN or does it show more detail of what sites he visited and anything he posted there?

Easy to not get tracked here, or anywhere if you take the time to learn how.

 

  1. Use a VPN provider (I use Mullvad and pay with bitcoin, no personal info needed)
  2. Use a DNS provider (I use 1.1.1.1 which is Cloudflare)
  3. If you're really paranoid use a Libreboot computer with free software. (I use a libreboot x200 running Parabola GNU/Linux)

When I first came about the same time Thailand was frequently commended for having the most free press in Asia after the Philippines, although Thai broadcasting media were all controlled by the government. Now look what has happened to freedom of expression in both  countries.  It is a tragedy.

After this posting I will give my S8 away and go back to my old Nokia 5110 - if I can find it in the bottom drawer.

Why use cloudflare instead of the dns supplied by  the vpn?
