Google, Surveillance, and Data Brokers: How Americans Lost Their Privacy Rights (Video)

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

In this 18 April 2024 video from The Dad Saves America Podcast, host John Papola has a discussion with technology journalist and data privacy expert Naomi Brockwell who explains the complexities of online privacy and the ever-expanding reach of both government and corporate surveillance.

The “if you’ve got nothing to hide, you’ve got nothing to fear” mindset accepted by much of the American public is, best-case scenario, a sign a great privilege and comfort and, worst-case scenario, full-blown head-in-the-sand denial of reality.

Almost every device, app, and wifi network you use sends out an unimaginable amount of data all the time. Data brokers sell your information to whoever is willing to pay, and you can be sure that governments are some of their most reliable customers.

Naomi shares tons of practical strategies that almost anyone can implement to protect their privacy, money, and freedom while online.
