Covid passport trials begin with live comedy night

A comedy night in Liverpool will be the first event to pilot the government's Covid passport scheme later this month.

Ministers hope the passes will allow the safe return of sports matches, conferences and night clubs in England.

They will include whether a person has been vaccinated, any recent negative test, or natural immunity determined by a recent positive test.

Downing Street also confirmed countries will be in a risk-based "traffic light" system when foreign holidays resumes.

Trials of the Covid passports will begin on 16 April with a show from the Hot Water Comedy Club in Liverpool and will continue through to mid-May.

Other pilot events include the FA Cup semi final and final, the World Snooker Championship, an evening at a nightclub, a mass participation run, a business conference and a cinema screening.

Longish read but quite interesting (IMO).

Facebook details of more than 500 million users ‘found on hacker website’
Information such as phone numbers, Facebook IDs, full names, locations, birthdates, bios, and email addresses was leaked

Previously-leaked details from more than 500 million Facebook users have reportedly been found on a website for hackers.

The data of some 533 million people from 106 countries was online on Saturday, according to Business Insider — including more than 32 million records on users in the US, 11 million on users in the UK, and 6 million on users in India.

Included is the data is users’ phone numbers, Facebook IDs, full names, locations, birthdates, bios, and — in some cases — email addresses, Business Insider said.

Just so no one panics, the facebook article is two years old, plus no one with any sense gives their phone number and address to facebook, they even sell your email address! :lol:

Yes, from 2019/2020 but it does say, "Previously-leaked details" - the article is dated yesterday as it's only recently that the stolen data has been found available online: "The data of some 533 million people from 106 countries was online on Saturday". As you say, no point panicking about it, if you use Facebook you don't have many secrets anyway.
