Yeah, I've been on a lookout for one of these, but it's tricky to get right. You don't want to use this when walking if the device has no battery and needs to be tethered to the phone. Battery life sucks etc. Still, looks like it might be usable in some limited scenarios, e.g. on the public transport/planes.

That's a really bad excuse for surrendering privacy. For starters, someone who has worked in surveillance will be necessarily very biased on the matter. Privacy is a fundamental right, unless you want to live in an orwellian dystopia.

Living in fear of government watching you 24/7 (which they are NOT doing btw) is a whole lot worse.  Think they are watching you all the time?  you must be up to some shady crap!

It's actually the converse. The government and corporations are up to some shady crap, and/or once they are in possession of your personal data, it can be stolen, leaked, or sold to even more nefarious actors. There are have been numerous instances of this. One of the sad outcomes of the rise of big tech and 9/11 is the progressive brainwashing of the population into thinking that the giving up privacy to businesses and governments is acceptable, or even desirable. A belief in individual personal data having no value is nonsensical - it obviously has huge value to bad actors, corporations and governments. All the services available for "free" are just being paid for by personal data, at a huge profit to the collectors of said data.

 

Here is a quick list of major data loss events:

 

There have been numerous instances of personal data in possession of governments being stolen, leaked, or sold to bad actors or external parties without consent. Some examples include:

  1. The US Office of Personnel Management (OPM) data breach in 2015, in which the personal data of millions of current and former government employees was stolen by Chinese hackers.

  2. The Equifax data breach in 2017, in which the personal data of 143 million Americans was compromised, including Social Security numbers, birth dates, and addresses.

  3. The Cambridge Analytica scandal in 2018, in which the data of millions of Facebook users was harvested without their consent and used for political advertising.

  4. The Yahoo data breaches in 2013 and 2014, in which the personal data of three billion users was stolen.

  5. The Marriott data breach in 2018, in which the personal data of 500 million guests was compromised, including passport numbers and credit card information.

  6. The Australian government data breach in 2018, in which the personal data of thousands of citizens was exposed online.

  7. The NHS data breach in 2020, in which the personal data of 150,000 COVID-19 patients was stolen.

  8. The data breach at credit bureau Experian in 2015, in which sensitive personal information of 15 million people was stolen.

  9. The data breach at the U.S. Department of Energy in 2016, in which the data of 104,000 people was stolen, including Social Security numbers and birth dates.

  10. The data breach at the U.S. Office of Child Support Enforcement in 2017, in which the personal data of thousands of parents and children was stolen.

These are just a few examples of the many data breaches that have occurred over the years. It is important to note that new breaches are being discovered on regular basis and the numbers of affected people and data stolen is subject to change.

Why are you using computers the internet and all this stuff?  Seems like you are complaining about something then doing that thing you are so worried about them doing. That's not SPYING.  That's morons hacking shit.  COMPLETELY different. STOLEN is the Key word here.  The government is not following people around and listening to your every word.  TINFOIL HATS PLEASE.

It's possible to use the Internet in a safe-ish way, so the rest is a bit non sequitur. We have to be able to benefit from the Internet without being exposed to mass surveillance.

I think spying is a big word, but in a sense it's all that happens - massive amounts of data about people are being collected without most of them realising this either at all, or having no concept of the true scale. Caps lock off pls.

Caps lock was used correctly in that case.  The amount of lunacy going on these days is just wacky.  The government is not following everyone around watching every little thing you do.  Simple...UNLESS, you are doing shady shit.  simple.  I don't care if they do to be honest.  Don't bother me in the least.  They will see I go in the woods camping alot, mountain biking, snowboarding and enjoying legal "products".  simple.  I dont give a crap either way, but I can assure you they are not following everyone around.

You (and most people to be fair) just don't realise the value of all this data you are giving up. For example, a bad actor could potentially plan a burglary based on your location data. That's a very obvious use case. Knowing that you go camping, and where has a number of far less obvious uses, down to political manipulation. And this is just a tiny fraction of it. Have you seen this video? Reposting, since I guess the educational work needs to continue. That's the guy whose firm helped get Obama and Trump (among others) elected:

The governments of the world are unworthy of our trust, and they've given us ample reason to have no confidence in them. Not all of them are overtly evil like China, Russia, North Korea, Cuba, etc. But, all of them abuse their power, misuse money, abuse taxation, abuse technology, illegally monitor, manipulate and exploit their citizens while being overly soft on crime and making excuses for the criminally insane. That's not a tin foil hat. It's called paying attention and calling them out for their incompetence and wrongful "leadership" failures.
