There’s Virtually Nothing You Can Do To Protect Your Online Privacy



In the wake of Roe v. Wade being overturned, online privacy is on everyone’s minds. But according to privacy experts, the entire way we think about and understand what ‘privacy’ actually means… is wrong.

In this new Think Again, NBC News Correspondent Andrew Stern dives deep into digital privacy — what it really means, how we got to this point, how it impacts every facet of our lives, and how little of it we actually have.

  1. Explain this in fortnite terms?????

  2. About five year ago I built two computers for my own use. I loaded Windows 10 on one computer and then loaded my own distinctive screen saver on that machine. I then loaded Windows 10 on the second computer that I had just built and my own distinctive screen saver appeared on the second computer without my loading it on that second machine.

    Even if they claim otherwise, Microsoft clearly has full access to everything you have on your computer if it is running Windows.

  3. Except not creating an online account / profile …

  4. Get a VPN, that should help keep your information private.

  5. I'm a white person and I've been sleeping in my car for two years. I can promise you the "system" doesn't take care of me.

  6. Is this modern time, I'm more scared of the use that private companies could do with my data than the government use.

  7. I would like to know how to legally request a copy of this data gathered and to which databrokers and how to ask for it.

  8. In the Holy bible it warns of earthquakes and wars – which are overseas and in United States of North America. The beast and it is in political view has risen to destroy humanity. The bible says that a rain of fire showers will happen and according to news reports – the earth is due a meteor to strike the earth but it might become a shower of fire that is headed for the earth. Satan is trying to take all souls from their choice of seeing the Heavenly Almighty Lord Good God the only True Creator of all that is seen and unseen and The Son Jesus Christ who are ordained with the Holiest Spirit – who shall reign for eternity. No one for sure knows when the end is near but only the true Good God and not even "Jesus or anyone except the Good Lord God knows the end time. It is humanities choice if the end is now or later! Bottom Line. Even the government's politicians are part of humanity and all will be held accountable for the dissection of choices for eternity or forever.

  9. If any political party is hiding truthful data that is causing hardship on any of humanity, then these political individuals should be without, mercy and be handled accountable, regardless of their status quo in any society. Bottom Line. What these politicians do not realize, they are causing those in general public hardship and illegal harm and causing many to follow suite that is causing incarceration of majority of innocent individuals that were just innocent bystanders not even tied to illegal acts. I really do not care who was in fault, but all is washed out eventually by those who have lied and held truthful secrets and documents of truthful findings in majority of hidden and truthful facts.

  10. There are ways, but it means not being connected! If no one has a connection then no one can see or think (if one cares) about one's opinion or knowledge. Bottom Line.

  11. There are ways, but it means not being connected! If no one has a connection then no one can see or think (if one cares) about one's opinion or knowledge.

  12. Of course spend your money on ideas that might have been legal or not. The face of today is be rich no matter how much hardship can created. Lives do not mean anything in certain mindsets. Not mine but who am I, although I might be consider rich not in fudicary funds! Bottom line!

  13. Stealing illegal and private data from public individuals is a criminal act that majority of governments say is theirs but if it is theirs then they would obtain from their own mindset instead of stealing and selling someone's else mindset. Bottom Line!

  14. Stealing illegal and private data from public individuals is a criminal act that majority of governments say is theirs but if it is theirs then they would obtain from their own mindset instead of stealing and selling someone's else mindset. Bottom Line!

  15. This is a lie. The state of California just passed a crucial law to provide protection. It publicly shames any prson or company found in violation of another's privacy. Facebook has been sued several times. There is a penalty to pay and jail time associated. You just have to have the stamina to overcome the filth….THERE ARE PEOPLE IN AMERICA WHO HAVE NEVER HAD THEIR PRIVACY VIOLATED IN ANY WAY

  16. The root of the issue is Web 2.0. It runs on advertisment.
    The solution is Web 3.0 which is blockchain based and runs on the distributed processing power of every device connected to the internet.

  17. Addresses and phone numbers should never be public from names online. Imagine any stranger that finds out your name , a cashier, a classmate, a bad date can find you.

  18. Being completely private and being online, you can only have one. That just how the internet works since day one.

  19. It's refreshing to see professor solov talk about this I thought I was going insane talking about this but not being able to articulate just like this. We don't ask why. We don't ask what you mean? We just make these "inferences"

  20. this is exactly what I'm talking about.

  21. Violence. That's what we can do.

    There's also tails and whonix OS.

  22. NO YOU'LL NEVER BE ABLE TO CREATE SAFE PLACES ONLINE IT ALL FILTRATES TO EVERY OTHER FILTRATED FILTRATE..
    THOSE WHO CREATED THE INTERNET HEMISPHERE FOR PUBLIC USE KNEW EXACTLY WHAT WAS GOING TO COME DOWN THE ROAD OF YEARS.. AFTER THEY OPENED PANDORA'S BOX.. THE INTERNET IS ABOUT AS SAFE AS YOU MAKE IT. IT'S A PUBLIC HEMISPHERE..
    UNLESS YOU AND EVERYONE ELSE WANTS TO GO DOWN THE ROAD OF GEORGE ORWELL 1984.. OR EVEN RAY BRADBURY'S FAHRENHEIT 451… WHERE GOVERNMENT CONTROLS EVERYTHING YOU DO THINK AND SAY. THEY'RE ATTEMPTING TO DO THAT NORTH KOREA AND CHINA AND RUSSIA AND MANY OTHER COUNTRIES ACROSS THE PLANET AND THEY'RE ALL FAILING.. HUMAN NEEDS A GREAT AND GRAND AND THERE IS NOTHING THAT WILL EVER CORRAL WHAT THEY WANT AND WHAT THEY ENJOY MOST. AND THAT IS ABSOLUTE UNEQUIVOCAL ELEVATED FREEDOM OF EVERYTHING THEY CHOOSE.. SO THE IDEA OF SO-CALLED SAFE PLACES ON THE INTERNET.. TOO LITTLE TOO LATE GUYS PANDORA'S BOX HAS ALREADY BEEN OPEN AND EVERYBODY HAS THE ABILITY TO SMELL HER DOUBLE-WALLED CASCADE. OF COURSE IF I USE ANOTHER WORD OUTSIDE OF CASCADE THEY WOULD CENSOR IT NOW WOULDN'T THEY.. TWHAT YOU SAY,.

  23. Yes, there are things to do to protect your data privacy:

    – Buy products and services from the EU, as they must comply with GDPR.
    – Use a (EU) VPN.
    – Use firefox, not Chrome, Edge or Safari.
    – Use DuckDuckGo as a shield for your google searches.
    – Use one of the privacy-oriented youtube clients or webpage front-,,ends.
    – Use alternate email addresses and to register for websites.
    – Lobby congress to prohibit companies from linking data and accounts they collect. And to make click-through licenses that require that you give up your privacy in order to use a product you bought especially essential ones.

    All of this is not perfect, but it is a dtart.

  24. That's not the Internet. This every day life in the hood 🌅

  25. Aaaaaand nothing about neoliberalism or late capitalism.

  26. There is one thing you can do: stop posting online

  27. 1:36 Best solution (for the greedy, inhumane tech capitalists)

  28. Why I'm plannjng in becoming a Luddite in 2023…

  29. I feel like we are in a dystopian world

  30. Just a humble reminder to all " government " people in the USA who took an Oath pledge to uphold the Constitution and Bill of Rights… So many of you aee unaccountable and betraying " We the Peopke". Get real man seriouslly You really think our Founding Fathers of tgis great Nation Under God would be proud of you?

  31. No lie. No one respects boundaries these days.

  32. From Privacy , you become attached to Online Piracy, of your identity and life.

  33. This is wrong. Everyone deserves the right to some privacy in their life

  34. Not true they just signed a bill 2022 for companies to sell your data. For 1, there were other alternative ways they could have watched what you were buying without looking at your data. Them buying and selling data was just an excuse to break the law. That's why they signed a bill to make it illegal and added it to the privacy protection act.

  35. Shouldn't the government mandate that data brokers pay royalties to us when our data is sold? Also, is the sale of this data taxed?

  36. LAUGHS HYSTERICALLY IN EUROPEAN

  37. This is a all lies. You can protect yourself many different ways. He is full of crap.

  38. Eh, I'm just wanting to make sure that my info is not being used for identity theft….the rest? If u have a debit card or cell phone u have been tracked for years…

  39. Cleverly omiting the name of these "databrokers" and the one he requested a copy of his data from …
