Privacy by Default is a goal of the xx network Platform. In your opinion, why is Privacy by Default critical for the future of the internet? Privacy is a limit on control. Control from governments, corporations, and other people. When we don’t take steps to maintain our privacy and ignore legislative or other kinds of threats to reduce our ability to embrace our own privacy, history has shown us that almost inevitably, our rights will be taken away. With that said, it’s important to note that wanting privacy is not anti-government, it’s simply pro-freedom. Freedom of thought. Freedom of speech. Freedom of choice.
