5G Threatens Privacy
New technology, same concerns
History endlessly repeats itself. As new technologies rollout, we find ourselves questioning two entities – governments and corporations. How much privacy should we give up to government and corporations? Ideally, as little as needed to ensure that society can safely proceed with what must be done for everyone to live a fulfilling life. Moving on from 4G-LTE, we find ourselves wondering how connected 5G will wire us into the internet. Early reports suggest that latency will be around one millisecond, speeds much faster, and density at the cost of range. The more we are connected to the internet, the more personal information we voluntarily or involuntarily surrender to companies and governments around the world. Both entities are not immune from hackers.
When there is a data leak, no one seems to take real responsibility for it in the United States of America. The government gets hacked – whoops. Mega companies dump motherloads of info – slap on the wrist. The European Union is testing its newly enforced General Data Protection Regulation, but time will tell how headline fines actually turn out. At the end of the day, you’re better off protecting yourself by using a service like Wiperts.com to remove personal information from the internet. Wiperts deals with personal information opposed to data brokers. Instead of storing your personal information and displaying it publicly, Wiperts seeks to remove it and preserve your online privacy.
Keep yourself safe online
The only way most companies allow us to use their digital products is by forcing us to agree to their terms. Most of us mindlessly click “I Agree” and consent to whatever whoever is asking. This is how companies like Facebook get away with huge data leaks – you get what you pay for, free services often don’t have many guarantees to privacy. Their stock value goes down, but if you’re not a shareholder, then it doesn’t affect you either way. In the end, you’re still not being compensated for their mistake of spilling your personal information all over the internet.
5G technology will depend on users agreeing to terms and conditions, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t act and protect ourselves from data leaks. Removing your name, address, phone number, age, and other personally identifying information helps prevent identity fraud and other unwanted activity from happening.
In the future, Tesla’s self-driving cars will most likely be tracked, guided, and managed by 5G networks. These networks will carry loads of information such as who’s in the car, their age, name, weight, address, phone number, smartphone type, and everything else that can be analyzed using a mix of near-field communication, Bluetooth, 5G, and biometric data. This data is ultimately a big bundle of zeros and ones susceptible to hackers worldwide. We will soon hear from companies all around the world how safe and secure 5G networks are, then watch them get hacked one-by-one until everything is out in the open again.
Which is why Wiperts.com offers a subscription service. Companies are routinely getting hacked and spilling information on the internet. This leads to your personal information being re-leaked onto the internet. Despite Google’s promise to automatically filter personal information from its search results, it will readily link searchers to third-party websites full of your personal information. Data brokers pay for Google Ads, and they pay top dollar for that ad-space. On one side, companies promise to never sell your data. On the other side, they have share information with their business partners. It’s not a surprise that data leaks happen with so much personal information duplication happening on servers worldwide. Protect yourself with a subscription to Wiperts today.
