“We Don’t Sell Your Data” and Other Hilarious Privacy Lies – Part 2

Listen to Episode 4 Part 1

“Mass surveillance creates a prison to the mind” Glenn Greenwald

Have you ever found yourself clicking on “Yes, I have read and understood the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy” only to nervously wonder what terms you just accepted? Whether we’re in our home with our family or confiding to a friend at the park there’s a high chance we cherish the privacy we can have with them. But what if I told you that someone in your house, in this very moment, has the power to hear your self-talk and to hear that inner voice that allows your mind to wander through your fantasies and insecurities? What if I told you that it was you who invited them into your home? The online world may not be as private as we were all led to believe.

Did you know that Facebook can read your private messages? Did you know that YouTube still keeps all your videos even if you delete your account? Did you know that Reddit keeps the drafts that you never submitted?

Find out what you can do to fight back when Big Tech tries to peer into your private life and hear about the tools you can use to take back control of your privacy when you’re online on Part 2 of Episode 4 of Tech 4 Evil.
