Where we are
Privacy leaks are a huge ongoing issue as every week the media reveals the latest hack or deliberate privacy invasion by the corporations who store and sell our data. The misuse of technology and systems beyond their original purpose has seen the rise of some wacky consumer software and products to combat personal surveillance.
Where we’re going
No-one is immune to privacy invasion, not governments nor big-tech. Instances will only accelerate as technology becomes more embedded in our lives. Consumers will need to weigh up the cost of convenience they’ve opted for until now, as it will come at a much greater cost in the future.
How to think about it
Develop anti-surveillance solutions that help people be more private in public. Where this isn’t possible, consider how to make privacy more palatable, be transparent with users and relinquish more control to them.
