You read the news about Cambridge Analytica and all the other shady companies and decided to stop using Facebook? That’s a good idea but you are still vulnerable to Facebook stealing and misusing your private information.
If any of your friends or relatives were less careful, you could have ended up with Cambridge Analytica collecting private information like your phone number, who your family members are, all the places you or your friends or family have “checked in,” and which groups they’ve joined — including those whose very names and subjects might reveal private information, such as support groups for health conditions.
And really, who can trust that none of their hundreds of friends is careless?
Yes, your privacy and your secrets, if any, are in the hands of Cambridge Analytica and probably dozens of other questionable companies as well.
Should this be legal?
