Privacy is important, but for the most part we are our own worst enemies in keeping our Privacy, and in our so called "connected" world our actions dictate how much privacy we lose.
Create a Facebook Account, lose some privacy, same with Twitter and all the other platforms out there.
Tell a good friend a secret, you've lost some of your privacy.
Hand over your resume during a job interview, lose some privacy.

It always come down to how much of your privacy YOU are willing to give up, and how much you will fight to keep your privacy

VIDEO: Flagstaff woman says her phone was hacked
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KY-kWMF5aBI

I'm sure there are more to this story but when you put everything on your phone....why would one carry around his/her social/bank info, etc.. with him/her or even store it on the phone?

I think privacy is vital, even if we have nothing to hide. I prefer to protect my data from online snoopers, that's why I started using proxy https://buy.fineproxy.org/eng/individualproxy.html a few months ago. And I don't have any regrets, it gives me a lot of benefits. I think it's the only way to keep our Internet freedom.

I value privacy immensely as I am aware of the consequences of being too revealing, but the truth is obvious that with the numerous privacy invading methods through the current technology or from companies, privacy is nonexistent in this world now. I strongly prefer to be wary with my information, but I have made an exception shared the subdivision I reside in to help inform the viewer of the crime that is occurring here.

With the sites such as Spokeo, Neighbor.Report or White Pages that obtained access to your name, your relatives name, your address and your other private information, to webcams being easily compromised, websites being easily compromised and customers losing their credit card numbers, having the need for plugins and programs created to avoid being tracked on your electronics, to stories from individuals who found their pictures (including stories of children pictures found on Pornographic sites as I have read in the news) uploaded to different sites. There is the situation of the Dark Web I have read of in the past, which has me curious whose private information has been shared there.

Want privacy? Stop using the Internet.


'ee gets it

The "management" aspect of intel's coreVpro chips and later caches all passwords, so your encryption is useless in the face of the NSA toolkit. Apple products, Androids, a lot of routers, even hard disk drives themselves.....remember Stuxnet? Embedded in the firmware.

That's why such a big deal was made about the spectre and meltdown vulnerabilities after wiki vault 7 was released. (Oh wait, isnt wikileaks fake, we were told? Is that why security experts went crazy at it, and my friend's company that has over 20,000 computers, they're patching them all and upgrading the BIOSes on ALL of them )

No private comms, period. The only way you can be absolutely sure you have private comms is to be in the Alaskan wilderness having a face to face with someone. (Caveat, you both left your cel phones and all electronic devices with civilization.)

I think it would be safer to assume that there is never privacy online, your phones, internet and to act accordingly....which is so hard to do.

I do value my privacy but if that same privacy is giving terrosist the ability to privately and freely commit crimes against other people.... then I don’t really know the value of it tbh

I like my privacy to be honest and only give out a little information about myself and what not when I feel the need to when communicating with others, or even being comfortable around others. My choice really to share certain things or not. Nonetheless privacy on a certain level anyone should try to have since it is the internet and all, but.. again people have the choice to do as they please so certainly can't be helped so much.

Cyber security is important and I should probably take it more seriously than I do.
Personal privacy I don't give a fig. The trick is to not engage in behaviour you'd be embarrassed if others found out.

Well too late, my phone eavesdropped on me say dye sublimation and Amazon started showing me Printer Products.
