How Do I Keep My Online Communications Private?

Updated: Feb 22

Online privacy has gained significant publicity over the past several years. From leaks by Edward Snowden, formerly of the NSA, to the exposure of user-IDs, passwords, and a plethora of Personally Identifiable Information (PII), the lack of privacy and data protection throughout the Internet has become glaringly obvious.

Less obvious are the debatable practices of otherwise respectable email providers, social media outlets, and other service providers across the Internet. These companies LEGALLY read your messages, collect your information, and sell it to marketers and other information consumers as a corporate revenue stream, often with little regard for their users’ privacy. This information can often fall into the wrong hands, whether by individual or corporate negligence or outright nefarious activity of an individual or individuals.

The massive influx of personal information available online and stored in the cloud has put privacy expectations at the forefront of discussion regarding service providers’ ability to safely store sensitive information. The extent to which personal data has can be accessed has become a topic of ethical consideration, and the legality, awareness, and boundaries of subsequent privacy violations are critical concerns.

According to research conducted by the Boston Consulting Group, privacy of personal data is a top issue for 76 percent of global consumers and 83 percent of U.S. consumers, while 61 percent have said they would like to do more to protect their privacy. However, for sites that do encourage information disclosure, it has been noted that most people have no trouble disclosing their personal information to a large group of people. This “Privacy Paradox” is a phenomenon that occurs when individuals, who state that they have concerns about their privacy online, take no action to secure their accounts. Furthermore, while individuals may take extra security steps for other online accounts, such as those related to banking or finance, this does not always extend to communication-oriented accounts.

While these services make our communication and collaboration much more convenient and efficient and our online lives more productive, we should ask ourselves - at what cost? For most of us, the cost is the loss of the privacy of information that we would prefer remained private. Unfortunately, many people have become numb to this risk or are completely unaware that their information and private communications are more publicly accessible than they realize. It has never been more important to protect your online privacy than today.
