Nothing to Hide? Don’t Be Naive – Every Internet User Needs VPN

Nothing to hide? Liberty Shield isn’t just about accessing a world of locked content, of expanding your choices and enabling you to choose what you want to watch and consume, it is about peace of mind, and internet security too.

Nothing to hide? A phrase frequently uttered during discussions on online privacy is “nothing to hide, nothing to fear”. The phrase is popular among those who wish to erode people’s right to privacy. This argument has been sold to convince people to leave themselves vulnerable to attack, whenever they use the internet.

Nothing to hide

You don’t always know when you have something to hide

As James Duane, a professor at Regent Law School and former defense attorney, notes in his excellent lecture on why it is never a good idea to talk to the police:

“Estimates of the current size of the body of federal criminal law vary. It has been reported that the Congressional Research Service cannot even count the current number of federal crimes. These laws are scattered in over 50 titles of the United States Code, encompassing roughly 27,000 pages. Worse yet, the statutory code sections often incorporate, by reference, the provisions and sanctions of administrative regulations promulgated by various regulatory agencies under congressional authorisation. Estimates of how many such regulations exist are even less well settled, but the ABA thinks there are ”nearly 10,000.”

If the federal government can’t even count how many laws there are, what chance does an individual have of being certain that they are not acting in violation of one of them?”

So have you still got nothing to hide?

If you still think you have nothing to hide, ask yourself – would you give your unlocked mobile phone to your boss and let her go through your emails? Would you allow your parents to have access to all the photographs on your cell phone or maybe see your bank statement? Would you show your friends your Google search history? People are embarrassed by all sorts of private things that aren’t illegal, why should governments and huge corporations have the right to read through your private thoughts, and fears?

Your Right to Privacy

A former CIA employee and the famous whistle-blower Edward Snowden said:

“Arguing that you don’t care about the right to privacy because you have nothing to hide is no different than saying you don’t care about free speech because you have nothing to say.”

Everyone knows that whatever you say over a telephone call, write in an email or message, communications from your bank and even your ‘likes’ on Facebook are being recorded and stored.

Billions of people post and share minute details of their lives all the time, right from what they eat, to who they meet, to how they spend their money and their time and all this is being logged and is accessible to law enforcement agencies, advertising companies, and even hackers.

VPN Has Become Essential

Wouldn’t it be nice to keep your details safe, away from prying eyes and have some peace of mind?  This is now possible with a Virtual Private Network (VPN). A VPN allows you to disguise your location and makes you anonymous. It encrypts data leaving your phone or computer so that even if the data is intercepted, no one will be able to read it.
