Taking into account everything that is happening, everyone can confirm that there is no privacy for anyone using the internet. Security experts say that if someone wants to be fully protected, the most effective way is to stay away from the internet. Already since last month, we've seen many well-known companies launch new upgrades for bugs and data breaches that have been observed.
Last week, for example Apple had to release a software upgrade, as a teen found one error in the Group FaceTime, which allowed those who called to hear the receiver's sound and speeches for the time that the calls were not answered. At first glance, it seemed like it was not the worst problem in the world of privacy, as Facebook users are usually friends and in the worst case what happened was that someone heard something they should not have heard. But they all overtook it soon.
In addition to this and other similar incidents, software companies seem to hear and see everything. For example, all of them happen to "retargeting"As when someone searches for a term on the internet, such as airfares for a destination, in the next hours and days there are advertisements related to anything he has searched for. Respectively, the same happens, even when someone changes location and has devices with him. Based on location, new suggestions and ads come to users, even when access to smartphones. For this situation, some people have stated that retargeting techniques are a convenience to what you want, as the online world is tailored to everyone's needs.
As easy as it may seem to someone else, the truth is that there is no evidence that the devices do not record our speeches, and according to security experts the word privacy does not cover any user. If one thinks more clearly, they will realize that it is very easy for a third person to learn personal information through social media, devices and other sites we use. Of course, there are several techniques that, if used, make it difficult hackers to the data breach. For example, techniques that help protect everyone's privacy are powerful and difficult codes and the use of anonymous browsing so that no information is stored. Enhanced privacy has contributed legislation such as that of GDPR in Europe and all service and marketing companies are bound to follow them, otherwise there will be sanctions and penalties.
Although there has been progress on the issue of user protection, technology often shares information that we do not want and we have not granted any license. Electronic crime is a very serious issue and it is something that must concern everyone as, as the years go by, the risk is growing more and more. It is also very important for younger children to be very careful with their publications and the way they use the internet, as when information and other information are published on the Internet, it is very difficult to completely remove them.
