Location? I've nothing to hide, so why should I care...

Anyone still getting this argument from friends / family... Often as they're tagging & pasting YOUR information / photo / location all over their fav social media sites without asking... How long will it take for people to wake up and realize Android is a world-wide surveillance device... Will people still be saying they've nothing to hide when they wake up and AI / Algos / Automation are mostly deciding their fate...

About whether to grant them health insurance or car insurance, or the amount they will uniquely pay for a particular hotel room, a car loan, a home loan, a credit card rate... The cost of a current account or online groceries. The cost of School / Uni for their kids, and whether they even get into a particular institute or get the job of a lifetime afterwards or are 'quietly' denied... That's where this is all heading....

Still have nothing to hide???
