For me yes I wish we had more privacy online. It is getting worse over the years.People are being scammed,Stolen Identity etc. Are you able to handle this when the crisis happens to you?

That is the curse of technology and another reason why I prefer life before this necessary "evil."

Yes, I would like more privacy online, our data are too visible and too many companies cheat and sell our data.

I think there is nothing I can do, because I have Facebook, and Instagram and both aren't that private. However there are some steps I can take from suffering of all above and I can set up my accounts so they can be more secure.

I refrain from doing too much online, so I am not really caught up in that whole privacy scenario. I know its old fashioned, but that is how I prefer things it. Then I can't complain about it.

With so many people shopping online and giving their debit/credit card numbers it is a haven for scammers and other crooks. The best preventative medicine for online invasion of privacy is to not use it for purchases or to give your personal information to anyone. Old school is still the best school.
