The Reasons Why Online Privacy Should Be Treated With Respect
« on: August 12, 2021, 04:13:58 PM »
Surveillance capitalism frequently makes us feel like we are in danger. Every action we take is being monitored. Every click, every post, every time we visit each and every location. The government and corporations collect all of the information they can in order to trace, exploit or control us. It's so terrible! It has been possible to make use of people's personal data to influence elections and sell products that play on their most feared fears. This is getting worse. Insurance companies are now using algorithms to study your personal information to determine the amount of insurance you should purchase. Companies are able to track your internet activities, which includes your educational level, your TV patterns, purchases, and your marital history. The algorithm could identify you as a high-risk person for depression if have recently divorced or bought larger-sized clothes. An insurance company can charge a lot for mental health care. They make you pay more. It's so much fun. What can we do to stop this? It seems like everything we do, and everyone we meet, contributes to the internet's massive database of details about us. So is there anything we can do to prevent it? Don't give up on your privacy yet. While it might appear like you're losing it some of your privacy, there are still ways to make a difference. It's not possible to completely escape the grid. There are still some options to consider. These are the steps I have taken that you can follow too.
 
Step 1: Find out how your data are stored
The first step in fighting this is to be aware of how your data is being taken. A lot of people know that any online information (private or public) is easily monitored and stored. It includes browsing histories, emails, WhatsApp messages, posts on social media and WhatsApp messages. But it's important to be aware that everything you do on the internet will generate data about you. The companies are becoming more aware of how they gather your data.
Google is one example. They're constantly finding new ways to capture your information. Google Street View cars that travel around the globe taking photos were discovered to be secretly searching WiFi networks to steal personal information from encrypted transmissions. Google Glass allows them to see private areas using the wearable technology of Google Glass. Google Home can always hear what you say, as long as it is turned on. Google's parent company Alphabet Inc. released Pokemon Go in the year 2016. The game did not just use your phone's camera, GPS, to help you find Pokemon but also provided an opportunity to look inside hidden locations and access nooks and crannies that were otherwise obscured. Google might also be considering Pokemon Go an experiment, to test whether people can be controlled electronically to click on the correct locations. These companies are sly so be aware of the information you may be giving out when you browse the internet.
 
Step 2 - Find out how you can track your progress
Your data is now being stored. However, how do they use them?
At any one moment the five major players (Google Facebook Apple Microsoft Microsoft, Amazon, Apple, Microsoft) will be monitoring your online presence. The data they collect is gathered through email, social networks, chat, streaming and gaming, browsing online, and working. Because these big 5 control the market for data and can create data hyperlinks. For instance, Facebook owns Instagram, WhatsApp, and its own social media platform. Facebook allows users to join these platforms to create a large profile that contains all three sources of data. Facebook lets you log in via Spotify as well as other platforms. This means that a large amount of data points is being sent to the storage facility. To stop your data being transformed into a persona, it is necessary to eliminate the hyperlinks between the data points. You must separate your data so that no profile cannot be used to create profiles. However, this isn't easy. This is a concept that some people take very seriously. They want to remove all digital footprints, so it is impossible for their movements as well as actions to be traced. This can involve making use of multiple identities online, cash instead of cards, as well as different phones and emails for different purposes. This can be difficult for many. If you decide to remove your Facebook and Google profiles would make it almost impossible to function at a time like this.
What are you able to do instead of putting your trust in God?
 
Step 3: Make a few small digital adjustments
"The citizens will be divided between those who prefer convenience and those who prefer privacy." -- Niels Otte Finnemann
What degree of convenience would you be willing to give up in order to keep your personal information secure? Most likely you will not give up too much.
I'll be sharing with you a few small easy steps I have taken in order to regain some of my privacy. These steps will reduce the amount of information these companies have access to and allow you more freedom to use the internet without worrying about being monitored.
 
UniMe - All in one Ecryption app Human Rights issues is an all-in one encryption software
Connecting people and virtual assistants to improve your life and business, the app features include transactions through wallets, and verification, with many more features to come along with all of the features you expect from AI and Blockchain. See which messaging apps respect user privacy. Unity, the UniWorld Ecosystem. (Follow When Blockchain Meets AI.)
 
DuckDuckGo -- A safer search engine
Your online searches reveal a lot about you. Your search results can reveal your deepest thoughts and questions and private moments. It's easy to keep web searches private due to its ease of use. Giving similar results, DuckDuckGo is a useful alternative to Google's search engine. I like DuckDuckGo because it permits you to browse for items privately without worrying about being tracked. It also includes website encryption, which prevents trackers.
 
Brave - A safer web browser
Google can still track the use of DuckDuckGo in the event that your browser is Chrome. It's essential to select an internet browser that does not track you and is secure. Tor is the best however it requires some time to become familiar with and creating. Brave is my go-to browser. It's fast, private safe, and best out of-the-box. It's also available for Android and iOS and you can install it on both platforms.
 
Bromite -- The Safest Android Browser
The mobile browser is one of the most well-known. It also includes ad blocking and enhanced privacy. It's not yet available for Android.
 
Telegram -- More efficient mobile messaging app
It's not easy to change your conversation to another mobile app. It's about inviting everyone to join your conversation. Unfortunately, most people use WhatsApp and are reluctant to make the switch. In terms of security and privacy, Signal is your best option. However, it's not popular and the features don't make users quit their current apps.
