While most of us are desperately trying to protect our data, tech companies are desperately trying to get their hands on it. It’s a constant game of tug of war that we are playing with our data. Tech companies will say they are collecting your data so they can optimize their services, but they are also aware that consumers are more and more skeptical of data collection. Here’s how you can stop tech companies from collecting your data.
Default privacy settings
Tech companies like Google, Facebook, and Amazon are constantly collecting your data so that they can “optimize their services.” When they say “optimize services,” think “collect your data to better target ads and sell you stuff so they can make more money.” The way they get permission to collect your data is by overwhelming you with fine print, exhausting you with legal terminology and hard to understand privacy policies that we finally just give up and click “agree.” Once you’ve agreed to their default setting, tech companies now have access to your entire life. Think we’re exaggerating? Watch this video.
