How Hong Kong Protesters Evade Surveillance With Tech | WSJ

Protesters in Hong Kong fear they are being monitored by the local government and potentially by China, a country at the cutting edge of mass surveillance. So demonstrators have developed hacks to avoid arrest and hide their digital tracks.

  11. Maciej D. on December 13, 2019 at 3:59 am

    Can cameras see at night when there is no light? Like how effective is Infrared or night vision actually picking out a face or eyes? And what elrcentage of cameras have them and how do you tell them apart?

  17. Destruction Z on December 13, 2019 at 4:06 am

    To be honest I am curious why Hong Kong keep protesting? Literally Hong Kong does not same as other cities like Catalonia. Although I hope other western countries could get involved it and help them. The truth is China government have there military base on Hong Kong. We couldn’t separate China without declare war to China government? So which country could volunteer claim a war??

    China couldn’t even identify themselves properly, and yet they are trying to identify their own citizens

    I think this is the reason why Cicada 3301 was created. To train people for this exact situation.

  34. JCohensChannel on December 13, 2019 at 4:24 am

    Hong Kong ain’t China. I feel for Hong Kongers fighting for there freedom. Imagine if the US had surveillance that tracked every citizen and paired it with their distain for the government. There would be a civil war.

  35. Artjoms Pugacovs on December 13, 2019 at 4:24 am

    Stop talking nonsense, take this as a tip and preparation on how to what to what if. Cause this is completely to every country.

  36. Mateo Ramirez on December 13, 2019 at 4:31 am

    How dafuk did they record this ?

  37. Terry Zhang on December 13, 2019 at 4:31 am

    Foil on RFID does not really work. the RFID (radio frequency ID) has different frequencies. The one embedded on ID carders are LOW-frequency IDs, meaning that it can’t be scanned unless within 0.5 ft, same technology as lift check in a ski resort. The medium/high frequency RFIDs are used with larger proximity, similar to EZpass in the US (called ETC in China).

  42. Chocolate Chucharacha on December 13, 2019 at 4:38 am

    I’m only 15, but I admire how smart these people’s tactics are, how they work together, and how brave they are for fighting, with high risks. I hope they get wat they want at the end:)

  43. bruce lomax on December 13, 2019 at 4:38 am

    Hongkongers must win. Lose, they will end up on the vivisection tables of Beijing. Don’t believe? Ask Falong Gong.

    These protesters are giving the government more reasons to enforce tattoo microchips. Anyone who does not have a chip can not buy or sell… I prefer them watching me tbh
