Your Internet Privacy Is Being Invaded
“We’re reaching the end sum of a long trend: in the US, privacy is now a myth, unless you’re working with the government,” Motherboard writer Derek Mead states in a recent article regarding the FBI and online privacy.
Leaked documents from the IRS, the Department of Justice and the FBI show that they don’t believe warrants are necessary for monitoring the public’s online communication. It’s also been reported that the Obama administration plans to back the FBI’s plan of forcing internet providers, social media platforms, email hosts and others to install backdoors to allow the FBI easier access.
Authorities are successfully pushing to make American’s online communication far easier to monitor and with fewer legal barriers than traditional modes of communication. This is due to their proclamation that the internet is the realm of criminals.
The FBI argues that the law states citizens have no expectation of privacy on transmitted information, and that old emails only require a subpoena—an order signed by a district attorney, not an independent judge like a warrant does—to force providers to hand over data.
