The links are indeed public. When he shows one of them on his phone (7:09) the URL appears to be about 80 characters long, and case sensitive. So, there are 26 letters times 2 plus 10 digits = 62 characters, and you raise that to the power of 80 because that's the length: 62^80 = a number with 143 zeros.

For comparison, the number of atoms in the entire universe is a number with (only) 82 zeros.

So yes, the links are public, but the chances of you finding anything within that space by brute-force search is basically zero. The real problem here is not that the links are public, it's that the data exists. If you ever manage to anger the government, they will be given all of this data and they will know more about you than you know yourself.

It's not about embarrassing you by letting people know you asked stupid medical questions, it's about knowing your weaknesses so they can be used against you. In 1984, they put a cage over the guy's head and put a rat in it. They do this because they know that he has a phobia or rats. You may not even know what your weaknesses are, but an AI designed for that purpose could figure it out given enough data.

The data is immediately being vacuumed into massive databases the NSA has. And I mean massive. Orders of magnitude greater than all of Google and the Alphabet company. Everything on the Internet is there. It is the Control Grid of Humanity. This is the API for it.

Now that it's known all some one has to do is make a program to search it.

Okay, it seems you don't want to answer, so I'll answer for you. Google limits you to only a few hundred API requests per second.

But let's imagine you figure out a way to increase that ten-fold. Actually, let's imagine you increase it a billion fold! Let's pretend you can make 100 billion API requests every single second!

Next part, how many files does google have for each person? In the video, there appeared to be less than 1000. Let's pretend there's way more than that. Let's pretend google has 100 billion files on every person on the planet. That's a shit-ton of data. How long would it take for us to find just one of those files - just one. We're doing a brute force search making 100 billion API requests, and there are 100 billion files per person and let's say 10 billion people = 1x10^21 files out there. How long would it take to find just one file?

Per the math in my previous comment, there are approximately 1x10^143 available URLs. This means that for each actual file, there are 1x10^143 / 1x10^21 = 1x10^122 URLs available. Another way of saying that is, you'll have to try, on average 1x10^122 incorrect URLs for each correct one (meaning, one that contains an actual file) you find.

You can make 100 billion API calls per second (you can't really go anywhere near that fast, we're just over-estimating in order to prove the point). How long will it take you to find one single file? 100 billion is 1x10^11. So it takes you 1x10^122 / 1x10^11 = 1x10^111 seconds.

60 seconds in a minute means 1x10^109 minutes. 60 minutes in an hour means 1x10^107 hours. 24 hours in a day means 1x10^106 days. 365.25 days in a year means 1x10^103 years. So, it takes you this many years to find a single file - a 1 followed by 103 zeros. That's how many years it takes to find one single file, on average.

1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 years

You said, "all someone has to do is make a program to search it." This is what you're suggesting: without google's help, you'd have to do a brute force search, and this is how long it will take to find one single file.

I don't think you understand.

okay, let's do some more math (and again, this is based on the assumption that the IDs are uniformly distributed - if it's shown they're not, this math will be wrong). How many HTTP requests do you think you make to google's API per second? I don't want to bias this. I want you to pick a number. Go ahead, pick a large number.

Thank you for being one of the few voices of reason in this entire thing. I understand it, you understand it, but it seems many people here on voat don't understand cryptography very well at all.

Any techie goats know how we completely disengage from and replace all Google services? Some of us don’t even know where to start.

[–] Spaghetti_Forgetti 1 points 1 points (+2|-1) ago 

Palemoon or Brave for browser (firefox is compromised). https://searx.me/ for search function (duckgogo is cucked). Tutanota for email. Bitchute for youtube. Physical maps and compass for getting to places. Smoke signals to shit post at the local injins.

[–] olltre 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

is brave cucked now? or controlled by jews? something bad recently came out about it

If you don't want to switch browsers, then uBlock Origin and Ghostery are 2 mandatory addons (firefox at least) in order for these tech companies not to steal your data and sell you like a slave. Lots of uBlock all-in-one packs on github that will block faceberg, google, amazon etc. Super easy to do.

[–] olltre 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

ghostery is a botnet

Friendly reminder that Google owns the Android OS. I assume every input of the 'keyboard' would be keylogged since they are an ad-based company. Don't know about Apple.

Dude near the end says that this type of data storage is kosher.??!!

[–] Whiteflourguy 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

who cares about pickles? I don't like them or Dill or any of them.

Lol at when he gets the other two nerds to talk with him:

"I'm sure this is all kosher"
