Data oozes out of everything these days. From phones to atms to laptops or tablets. Most of it is encrypted (poorly), but only if outside your own network. It is simple, and easy, for any script kiddie moron to sit inside the network of a public wifi hotspot and capture data flopping about in it. And then see what that data is.
Think about all that next time you check your bank balance or order something online and you are using a public wireless hotspot. If not, don’t whine when you get weird charges on your bank statement or when the nude pics you sent to your boyfriend wind up on some coward’s website. It is your own fault for not being more careful.
It is not the government or the internet provider’s responsibility to protect you- it is yours. Stop expecting privacy and take some yourself.
You’re all a bunch of mindless sheep.
