Received a brand new Kindle Paperwhite (2020) for my birthday a few weeks ago.
It is my first e-reader ever and i like the concept of having a library in my pocket. Would really like to try it and enjoy it, but i have some concerns about privacy and device spying. That’s why the e-reader is still unopened in his box today!
I’ve been reading a lot of articles and web forums to learn how to fight against privacy issues on the Paperwhites devices. Even though i’ve found some tips, the articles and forum discussions date back from a few years already and don’t really apply on the new Paperwhite’s models.
I wonder if some of you would share some knowledge, tips and tricks to help us fight against the Kindle Paperwhite spying and be able to use it with privacy.
For now, the tips i’ve found are the following:
-Never turn on the Wi-Fi on the device
-Don’t register an account on the KindlePaperWhite
-Don’t buy books on the amazon store (download them on computer and then transfer them on the device).
Is this enough to bypass the surveillance and spying of the device? Is there a way to root/jailbreak the new Kindle PaperWhite devices?
Thanks all in advance for you help !
