How many people realize how much of their privacy is not really private? How many people are unaware that they are being watched closely? Well there is no concrete number but it is certainly many many more than you would think. There are more spies around you than you think doing investigations on you right and left that you are completely oblivious to. The thing is that they come in the form of everyday things that people just accept as a nuisance.
So what are the things that people use to do investigations into your personal life? Well lets start with your monthly bills for examples. First your phone bill. You didnít maybe think about it but people have access to the people you call, the amount of time you spend talking to certain people or places of business and where you make the calls from. In fact with the advent of cellular phones that receive and send out digital signals to satellites you can be placed in a certain place at a certain time with the information that the phone companies have. Scary huh? Kind of remind you of enemy of the state?
Well how about credit cards? You think about what you spend your money on and if you would want anyone knowing how you spend your money? Well they do! You are a name and a number in their records that is attached to every charge that you have made, what you bought, in what quantity, how much you spent, and where you bought it. Another way to pinpoint where you are and when. You can imagine how helpful this is to the officers of the law when they are carrying out their investigations. Hopefully this is not what concerns you but rather that your privacy is not as secure as you thought.
What about the internet? Well this is perhaps the least understood and the most vulnerable place to be for people. People have parts of their lives that they donít want to be public knowledge and many if not most of them are heinous things but legitimate and upright yet sensitive things. More and more everyday people are computerizing their information including the sensitive stuff, and if its one your computer and you are connected to the internet than you are at risk. People left unprotected are basically an open book to whomever would have a advantage over you with that information. This is not only how you spend your money or where you hang out on the internet but also any health records, financial records, family records, etc.
So do yourself a favor and become aware and learn how to take steps against the invasion of your privacy via subversive and subtle techniques of investigation.
