The Wolf That Guards the Door or Why Privacy Matters

The Tutanota Blog has published an interesting article:

On April 3, 2017, President Trump signed a bill which was designed to cut out all of the FCCs protective laws for consumer internet use in the US. This action effectively opened the floodgates for advertisers and increased the reach of government procurement on data generated by private citizens.

Unfortunately, in many other countries, the loss of privacy is already a common fact of life. With corporate giants and government entities finding new ways to spy on private citizens, there seems to be a dark void where peace and personal rights should be, leaving consumers the world over smiling nervously at their ISPs and wireless providers, like the proverbial sheep with the wolves that promise to guard them.

The article then goes on to detail:

  • Internet Privacy is a Defense
  • Privacy Stops Criminal Activity
  • Privacy is a Human Right
  • Internet Privacy Protects Parties in Legal Agreements
  • Online Privacy is Safety
  • The Wolf That Guards Personal Information
