Privacy gives us the power of spending our time as we want. It protects our important information which we don’t want to share with the public. It ensures our freedom and power. We can be our true selves in our private time. It allows us to feel safe, confident and out of control. Privacy gives us the time and space to enjoy our lives fully. We can do whatever we want to do or we like to do in our private time. Especially in the world of social media, it is very important to protect our privacy from others.
