The Fourth Amendment

I wonder if anyone notices how much technology is the catalyst for infringement on our fourth amendment rights.

Technology allows and encourages governments and businesses to eavesdrop on the average citizen’s personal information and we never think about it.

The storage source is the cloud, the phone, the tablet and the computer. Years ago personal information was tucked into a file box somewhere in the house. Now it’s readily available by government and clandestine hackers alike.

It’s not necessarily covert; it’s overt just based on our willingness to trust the security of where we store our personal information.
