"We use fire doors to contain possible fires in our homes and buildings and watertight compartments to limit possible flooding in ships. We need to create analogous separations in cyberspace."

This book is a critical read that reminds us of the importance of privacy in a surveillance society today. It is very accessible for academics and non-academic alike. Touching various subjects such as digital ethics, philosophy, politics in a very engaging way.

Our data is being collected against our interests. We may see it as harmless and beneficial to get a personalized experience using many platforms that help our daily lives. But is the platform truly built for our benefit? Why both governments and corporates want our data? Why is personal data toxic? If we're honest people who don't commit any crimes, why should we care about it? Carissa Veliz answers many intriguing questions about privacy that successfully filled me with dread.

As someone very concerned about personal data, I'm already lurking in the subreddit r/privacy to learn more about keeping my data safe before reading this. But Carissa put many insights that haven't crossed my mind when I'm learning privacy. One of them is that my data affects my own family and greater people if it's abused. It's important to keep this in mind to avoid being skeptical about reclaiming our data. "Privacy is collective and political – it's not just about you."

This book also provides practical suggestions on how to take control of our data, to name a few:
• Use a browser designed with privacy in mind.
• Stop using Google as the main search engine.
• Use a messaging app that offers end-to-end encryption.
• Be attentive to what we're posting online.
• Discuss privacy with friends and family.
• Use privacy extensions and tools such as add-ons, password manager, or VPN.

To care about privacy looks inconvenient, but as Carissa writes here, "convenience has to be weighed against the price we have to pay for it, and the consequences that are likely to ensue." The future of privacy is on our hands now, whether we'll succumb to an extreme version of the surveillance society or a new world that respects its citizen's privacy. ( )
