New Docuseries Reveals How Big Data Tracks Your Every Move On The Internet
Is it possible to traverse the internet without being tracked?
Savvy users of the internet are aware, on some level, of the fact that our data is up for grabs all the time. We give away data intentionally — signing up with our name and email to use any number of sites, revealing our personalities and tastes with every tweet and Facebook post, storing our credit card information on Amazon — all the time. But we also give away data without ever really consenting: to third parties that track users across the internet, from one website to the next, compiling a remarkably in-depth profile of you based on your every online move. It feels like we have free email, free Facebook, free Twitter, free Instagram, free everything. But really, it’ll cost you.
