Technology has been both a blessing and a problem for a number of years now. As technology became more and more important to everyone’s lives it also became somewhat of a privacy concern and over the past few months it has become increasingly clear just how much of a privacy concern mobile technology poses. The good news is that privacy online and mobile privacy are both soon to become hot items politically so we should see some improvement in a number of areas.
Various states and cities around the United States have already begun pushing for increased privacy regulations which would protect users and as more and more areas begin to push for these rules the movement will simply gain momentum. This is great news because it means the era of advertisers and search engines selling user data will likely be coming to an end. Cell phones currently collect thousands of pieces of information daily and through a variety of sources this information is used by advertisers, under newly proposed privacy laws this would be banned and legally impossible. Obviously the procedures needed to actually enforce this type of law are somewhat complicated and very difficult but if any sort of significant privacy law such as this begins to spread we will likely begin to see a nationwide movement towards increased privacy in nearly every sector of the technology market and that is truly good news for anyone and everyone connected to the internet.
