I have a question for you. When you are writing or watching something and your sibling tries to check what you are doing, but you don’t want to show them. In your absence or without your knowledge they check it. How do you feel? You feel angry. Right??
Have you ever thought that the smartphone you are using with lots of password (Pattern, Pin, Face authentication, Finger print) have kept your data safe? If you think your chats with your friends and families are not seen by others. Then you are completely wrong. There is someone who is watching you every minute. Your every movement is seen by someone. Someone knows everything about you and all yours secrets.
But how funny it is that you don’t know about it or don’t know about him/her. Someone who knows about your favorite things and the things you hate. Where you go, with whom you are, your phone password, mail passwords, your ATM pins.
You must have about how Facebook has leaked the data. Your data may also have been leaked. What if someone misuse it? But it was a very small thing.
Just do something. Put your phone near you and just talk with someone about any product. After opening your phone, you will see the ad of that product will flash on browser in 15-20 minutes. It is not a joke just try it. Yes google is also listenening all our conversation and know everything about us.
Every time we are under cameras, when you buy a new smartphone it have 2-4 cameras. In your family every one have personal phone. Just think how you are under surveillance by your phone.
Now you must be having this question that why someone is spying on you. Such a wastage of time. But you must be knowing every data have some worth. Even Government of every country see your data, it helps military in identifying any wrong activities.
Internet is good thing but it is also hell. It is dangerous when your data goes public. You don’t have any data privacy. Things are going more worse day by day. Someone knows when you leave for your job, in which bus or taxi you are, where you work, where you go with your friends and when you return home. You are getting tracked everywhere.
I am not saying to stop using internet or stop carrying smartphones. Use it with but caution. Why apps need all the permissions? For example, why a notepad app need your camera permission, phone, contacts, read messages? Why you allow yes for all permission? Just think about it, decline permission you think app doesn’t need.
I have written this post for you to think about your data, not for making you panic.
And last I want to say-
“You have zero Privacy anyway. Get over it.”
