What the carriers are saying is that because we’re all carrying around smart phones (I call them trackers), we use social networks, we’re online all the time, that our CPNI – Customer Proprietary Network Information – is also everywhere and therefore, carriers should no longer be held liable for CPNI.
Here’s why everyone should be concerned. CPNI has always been protected. If it’s no longer protected, that opens the doors for carriers or anyone you’re online with, to do whatever they choose with your personal information. This opens the door to let carriers or social networks track your every move and then do whatever they choose with the data they have. It opens the door for them to track every movement, every key stroke. It’s wrong. If this happens, say goodbye to any semblance of privacy. And if there’s no privacy, there’s no freedom.
People should be up in arms about this. But instead, no one notices. Well. While the Hens are sleeping, the foxes attack the Hen House.
If this happens, our every move will be tracked. There will be no privacy. No privacy means no freedom. Every movement you make, every post, Tweet, whatever you do online, will be mined. Prices could be manipulated on the fly because the website operator would know who you are and intimate details about your life. Insurance rates could be changed — or cancelled — because the insurance company knows everything about you. I could go on and on.
People need to wake up and see what’s happening before it’s too late.
