A few weeks ago, while surfing the net, I stumbled upon a post about a particular feature of a phone that enabled callers to listen in on the conversation of the recipient of the call even though the call was yet to be answered.
As long as the caller had begun the video call, he could listen in on the conversation of the recipient within said recipient's surrounding and the recipient would be totally unaware of the indirect eavesdropping. :
This feature is just one of many that highlights the nagging worry among law makers and the general public of the consistent breach of the law and right to privacy occasioned by technological advances.
From simple acts of engaging on social media, downloading an app, online purchases, internet call, among others, consumers' personal information are no longer considered sacred. Across diverse platforms, data regarding billions of technological users are shared and harnessed. :
It has been posited that with the fast pace in technological advancement, an equally strident rule/regulation should be put in place to control the excesses of technology, particularly in protecting the privacy of the humans.
Without that, breaches and security violations whether of individuals, companies, organizations, even governments will become a major cause of worry.
All people are entitled to their privacy, but we just may be running out of space in our closets if this issue is not swiftly tackled by the law across all borders. :
