Invasion of Privacy
Your personal privacy is being invaded 24-hours a day, 365-days a year, and there is nothing you can do about it! Actually you don’t mind. When was the last time you read an application or software’s user agreements? How many did you ‘accept’ in your life without bothering to read the many pages of legal jargon?
Guess what, for the privilege to use a certain software, browse a website, actually use an ISP, you have to give companies (mostly those you have never heard of before, or do not know where they are based!), the legal right to do what they please with your personal private data. Do you know what that means? It means that you have signed away your soul!
Do you know that Facebook, Google, Twitter, WhatsApp, Netflix, internet service providers etc. are making a fortune by monitoring your browsing histories and app usage histories? From your browsing patterns they know your health concerns, shopping habits, movie preferences, and your darkest fetishes. They know where you bank, your political views and sexual orientation simply based on the websites you visit. They even know if you’re browsing at work or at home. Actually they most probably know your exact location because you have accepted their request to track your location.
They also have access to your photos, microphone, camera… you are bare naked! All this data about you is stored, saved, monitored, and even sold to advertisers and God knows to whom else. Do you mind? No you don’t! Actually you can’t mind because you have accepted for them to do just that.
So why would you be surprised if a simple airport scan or a hospital x-ray can expose your deepest secrets, sins, and ailments. Your vanity, your addiction, and even your anxieties are revealed for all to see.
You cannot hide, your privacy is invaded!
