Chapter 1 -
The Illusion of Anonymity

Privacy on the Web?

Today’s society is rich in information.  With the emergence and growth of the Internet, a wide array of data is globally available as long as an individual has access to electricity, a telephone line and an Internet service provider.  Indeed, the Internet overflows with information on just about any topic one could name.  But what does all this mean when it comes to personal privacy? 

Many people live under the assumption that their personal lives are relatively private.  With information just a click away, this couldn’t be farther from the truth.  Items that most people would consider private such as credit ratings, mortgages, details of divorce and even interactions with the law are all safety tucked away in a secure database.

For example, in the state of Florida it is possible to request a public records check and see the complete criminal records for anyone, for any reason.  There is a modest fee associated with this process, and the response is immediate via the Internet.  Florida is hardly unique in this respect.  In fact, there are many companies that offer this type of search nationwide.

They, who would give up an essential liberty for temporary security, deserve neither liberty nor security.  Benjamin Franklin
