Chromebooks are very secure. This is not surprising. Prisons usually have excellent security.
@aral I’m glad the conversation is starting to change. It frustrated me no end that people (esp journalists) thought security == privacy, or that the terms were equivalent.
@aral what's your definition of privacy? They are very private by the Google, Apple, Microsoft, etc. definition.
@arh Privacy is the right to decide what you keep to yourself and what you share with others. You have zero privacy on Google’s platforms because you don’t have the right to not share with Alphabet, Inc.
@aral they also tend to not let you out (vendor lock-in) and you're under total surveillance all the time.
@xarvos If Apple goes ahead with its current plans, they will have crossed an even worse line.
@aral chromebooks are very secure mostly because they are very limited which means that their attack surface is very small.
They're not full blown computers...
