Farewell, privacy

The concept of privacy in a public place will vanish: if now people in the subway - it's just some people in the subway, in the nearest future, everyone will be able to see your name, place of work, age, orientation and your marital status with the help of augmented reality glasses.

You may ask, "How come, I didn’t leave anything of this on social networks?" Consider such a situation. Suppose a member of a group of enthusiasts from the community "Deanonymizers" automatically reports to an open online database: "I'm in this subway car, see 20 people at this station." Another enthusiast in half an hour reports that the same person, that is you, was seen entering an apartment block, and so on.

Thus, even if your photo cannot be found on the Internet next to your name, Deanonymizers will have the map of your movements and relocations, which sooner or later will acquire more and more details.

Stuart Shepherd Hummm I dont know about this. A NWO plan? 06 Feb 2019
Stephen Bridgwater The technology is already available. The data collected by the apps on smart phones, social media sites, Internet browsers, WWW cache, server logs and business information systems (financial, leisure, government, social, transport, legal, insurance, etc) is collated and sold or shared by corporations already, so the likelihood of this prediction to be true is almost 100% certain to be realised. 06 Feb 2019
Will Longaphie Making privacy information public will lead directly to open discrimination. Humans beings are not that enlightened... Racism, bigotry and hatred aren't going away any time soon. 06 Feb 2019
