When you want to watch videos on your phone, you’re probably using an app whose dual role behind the scenes is to gather as much information about you as it can. It observes all of your actions, and adds all this information to a database about you that it shares with thousands of other companies.

We have the power to choose how much of our digital self we share and who has access to that information. Privacy isn’t about hiding — it’s about choosing what to share, when, where, and with whom. Choose apps that protect your personal data, and cast a vote for a more privacy-conscious internet.
