When visiting some news sites or downloading that new APP to your phone, ever wonder why you have to accept the ‘Terms and Conditions?’ Yea, you know why; you are giving them access to your device – willingly. I get it; I do it too, because refusing to agree keeps you from using Facebook, Twitter or even Microsoft word. We have come to accept the fact that privacy is limited if not nonexistent. Just yesterday FBI Director James Comey warned that “there is no such thing as absolute privacy in America.” He went on to say that “even our communication with our spouses, with our clergy members, with our attorneys are not absolutely private in America.” You can read the entire article here; you will probably notice that the CNN website asks you to accept their ‘terms’ to view the article. You might also remember the murder case in Arkansas where police got a search warrant for the data from an Amazon Echo that was streaming music around the time of the murder. Yes, your phone, laptop even smart TV maybe listening in on you, scary thought. And they wonder why we’re preppers!
Hope for the best, prepare for the worst.
