I always lecture friends of mine that there is no privacy on the internet but no one cares or wants to believe it. Hell, I don’t want to believe it. Yet the convenience and necessity of smartphones and free cloud drives and social media platforms seems to trump in my head what I know about the internet. Even employing the most tinfoil-hat security practices doesn’t ensure much of anything as long as you’re actually browsing the web.
The most disturbing chilling effect I think though are smartphones where people have the falsest sense of privacy and the highest risk of security breach.
