There is not enough awareness about what kind of data is being collected by these services and apps, and for what purposes that data is being used. People believe that if you aren’t doing anything wrong, there should be nothing to hide. It’s like saying, I’m not hiding anything in my house, so I’ll not have walls and doors for my house.

Unfortunately, people don’t even want to spend a couple of minutes and try to understand these things. But as you said, it definitely feels good to find someone who thinks alike about this. Thanks!
