Many of the people don’t like to give out any personal information to strangers. They think their information could be misused in one way or another. Am I right? But have you ever thought that why we give this information so quickly to the internet companies like Google, Facebook or Instagram? Knowing the fact that they keep this information forever?………
I saw many people on the internet and in real life that they are too much concerned about their private information. I keep on my experiments with it and ask people to tell their Instagram or Twitter handles, and what I found is that many people simply say that they do not use Instagram or Twitter or whatever (Oh really?). I wonder that why they have such kind of attitude? Maybe they want to keep themselves Private. But where is the Privacy? Where?……. Is there any privacy on the internet?🤔🤔……..
The Facebook is stealing the users’ data. Twitter handles keep hacking, millions of Quora users’ data got stolen. The Weather Channel apps are selling the users’ location information to advertising companies. Google keeps your every single detail in their data centers. Where is Privacy? What are you thinking?
Every single user on the internet is being used by the companies to earn the profit and they target everyone by their ad banners. Your personal information is being used for business. It’s almost like you’re being sold door to door just like a prostitute. I remember I read an article about user data just a few months ago and I come to know that in dark web, you can buy personal data as low as 5 $ per user. I mean it is real cheap. I don’t know where I read that, but it was one of the recognized sites on the internet.
Another story I want to share is that I also saw some people on Instagram who have their phone numbers on their profile, but if you ask them to give their phone number (just in case if you’re some kind of friends) they simply deny it. Not gonna name them, but I did this experiment with some. As a result, I got blocked.😄…… I’m amazed that what they are thinking or doing or behaving like this? Do they have any kind of fear of misuse? If I were really wanted to misuse the number, I never would ask for it.
Privacy nowadays is not more than an illusion. Your information could be misused so easily. It depends on the attackers if you’re useful to them or not. And if you’re not, then you’re 100% safe, otherwise, you’re 100% unsafe, no matter how complex passwords you use.😉……..
So what do you think about Privacy? Do you agree with me? Or you have some different opinion?
Please share it in the comments.
And beware of Mark Zuckerberg!😜
