But the issue over here is that most government today are keeping track of everything we do online, claiming the need for this info to insure national security. Well who made it legal or better who gave them the right do so, is it the privacy policies they keep hiding behind? Well we cannot do anything about we can only sit and watch because they are our protectors. The best thing you should do if you think you are being watched, or being tracked is go back to the nineteenth century or remain in this century but be careful on what you put online and what you say.
Are these governments invading our privacy or are they just protecting us? Well in the sake of protection government need to monitor travelers in the airports to prevent any terrorist act, but can they take revealing images of us. Well they are and they claim that they are not storing or saving these images, but researches have shown that they are being stores and it is only a matter of time before these images are leaked and you’ll see revealing images of yourself online.
