It’s Time to Regain Control on your Information

our information may be at risk.
It’s not an ad, and it’s not an apocalyptic scenario.
It’s happening right now, as you are reading this article.

“How could something like this happen?” would probably be the most commonly asked question when the average user finds out the truth about their personal information. The answer usually strikes them with even more confusion and uncertainty. Typically, it happens because everyone lets it happen, without even knowing.

The biggest information gathering companies are the ones who seem the most safest, friendliest and secure — Prime examples are Facebook and Google, who offer you a great variety of services for free. But this special offer comes with a price, of course. The price being the harvesting of your information through their special apps and features (for example; your location, your internet history, favorite personnel and many more). This information is being sold to third-party companies who are more than willing to pay for it. Guess what? Your information is worth a lot of money, and you’re not seeing a dime of it.

It’s far from over

If you think the problem is just Facebook and Google, think again! The IoT (Internet of things) revolution is here and gaining momentum every day. Being part of our daily lives, the information gathered is enormous — Almost every device you use will store valuable information about your daily routines, actions, preferences and more; forming a web of information that will be combined to create the perfect profile of every user, soon to be almost every citizen in the modern world.

Luckily, governments are catching on and realizing the damage caused to everyone’s privacy and personal information. GDPR was passed last May and raised serious concern to all major companies -who had to take drastic measures in order to fit in the new regulations.

However, this isn’t enough.

How can you tackle this?

Things will start to move only when users themselves understand how valuable their information really is. More importantly, how to take advantage of their personal data, rather than being taken advantage of.

This was the catalyst that sparkedAQUA.
