Glenn Greenwald: Why privacy matters

“Why privacy matters (even when you’re not doing anything wrong)” – that’s the question raised by Glenn Greenwald during his TED presentation. So why should you care about your privacy when you have nothing to hide?

Based on the revelations of mass surveillance of US citizens by Edward Snowden, Glenn Greenwald explains the importance of your personal privacy.

If you’re comfortable with trading your privacy for seeming “safety”, whether you agree with Google’s CEO Eric Schmidt, who said “if you’re doing something that you don’t want other people to know, maybe you shouldn’t be doing it in the first place” or Mark Zuckerberg’s “privacy is no longer a social norm”, you really might want to absorb this TED talk and hopefully update your opinions.

Care about your privacy, as long as you can. We still have the option.
