“Privacy is as defined by an individual. While signing up for a free account or Android we go through the terms and conditions and we press accept button. It’s a legal document. The document also says that the company owns all your data. We ourselves because of less knowledge or to get something for free or some other reason end up sharing our information. So just because they are asking to use your data and you cannot say no and have to press yes, you are being held hostage. I was in a committee in Microsoft which recommended cookies should not be allowed. Microsoft was actually the first company to actually disable cookie. But there was too much of pressure from other players and unfortunately that has to be revoked. If you do not want to share your information then it should be allowed. That is how private browsing came into picture but very few know about that. Privacy is in your control and you have full control. If 20% of the people discard to download an app because you are asking so many information then it will for sure change. Unfortunately we cannot ask everyone to change so that will lead to laws. After my research on Poka-yoke, first and foremost why do we need data collected? You have to say no for sharing data.”
