iOS/Android Privacy: – see what JavaScript commands get injected through an in-app browser · Felix Krause

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/08/31

Especially on Archive, but also on Android and other mobile operating systems, mobile apps can have their in-app browsers to circumvent the OS provided wrapper around the system browser.

On iOS, the Safari is the only system browser engine whereas on Android you can have other engines too, so less Android applications have in-app browsers.

Most of those in-app browsers are in social media applications that go to great length to keep their users inside a walled garden.

The site [Wayback/Archive] helps checking how severely information is leaked through the in-app browser as those potentially have a lot of control. TikTok is worst capturing all input including credentials like user names and passwords.

appletv – How can I show a read-only version of Google Calendar on Apple TV 4th generation? – Ask Different

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/05/14

Two calendars and three weather frames.Based on [WayBack] appletv – How can I show a read-only version of Google Calendar on Apple TV 4th generation? – Ask Different there is one choice that might work on Apple TV 3rd generation and 4th generation:

This is the only practical solution I dissected from [WayBackHow to surf the web and use Safari on Apple TV – Macworld UK: Here is how to browse the internet and watch web services on your Apple TV.

Installing requires a few steps as described at

Limiting to only Apple TV 4, another solution is also possible:

However the last solution is not a real web browser, so it does not allow a layout I’m using for the calendar, or actually two calendars:

  • weekly calendar on the left so my brother sees his detailed activities for the upcoming days
  • monthly calendar on the top right for an overview of the past and upcoming weeks
  • three weather frames on the bottom right with two weather radars from different sources and a weather overview for the upcoming days

The reason I need this is because my brother is mentally retarded having problems with abstract concepts like relative time and scheduling. Like me he is also easily distracted and not good at repeating tasks. So looking at a schedule at least once a day is tough for him.

He is very good at concrete topics, especially ones he can put to practice right away like “will it rain on my way to work”. That makes him look at this web page in the first place.

Currently this calendar is shown on a monitor by a Raspberry Pi attached to it.

But I might go for the Apple TV 3 route later on.
