Do You Accept The Terms and Conditions to Invade Your Privacy?

Nobody on our world likes it when our privacy is invaded yet we willingly give companies the right to invade our privacy. When we download an app and we accept the terms and conditions that we accept without reading them, we end up giving a piece of our privacy away because some apps access information on our phones and on our facebook accounts. We click “accept” to download the app and by doing so we told the company that made the app that it’s ok for them to access our facebook posts and our contact list and gather information about what we do, where we do it, when we’re doing it, and who we do it with. We like to be careful about not giving away too much personal information and we turn around and check in on foursquare or facebook telling the rest of the world “Hey! Here I am at the bank, come rob me!”  In this day and age we need to be careful about what sort of information we make public for the whole world to see. Whether it be from an app accessing our private information to people checking in at a location thus opening the door for a vengeful ex or a stalker to come find you. Every day we seem to be losing more and more of our privacy and we don’t even know its happening.
