Adam Shostack: Will People Ever Pay for Privacy?

· Adam Shostack

Often asked, "Will people ever pay for privacy?" Adam Shostack’s answer is a resounding "YES." Shostack adds, "Not only have people paid for privacy, they currently do, and will continue to do so." However, even though individuals say they care about privacy, they do not always act that way.

With the decision to repeal internet privacy rules that protect internet service providers (ISPs) from selling their customers’ private browsing history, many people are beginning to wonder if our era of privacy has ended. According to 01 Media, "Modern technology makes it easier than ever to spy on neighbors, and reports filed on WikiLeaks even showed that there are operations that allow government groups to spy on politicians as well as regular people. If you really think about it, it's both terrifying and insanely intrusive."

It is no wonder that many people are beginning to wonder how they can maintain their privacy and what it would cost to do so, especially now that the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) continues to disband Net Neutrality.
