    I do not care for those "privacy/antispy" tools anymore. They tend to break some things in your system. Do a full system backup before playing with them. Besides, as Dalchina has said, using social networks is a great source of invading privacy.
    So there is a simple answer here. JUST SAY NO to Facebook. You will have so much more free time.

    Hmmmm, don't know if I've been insulted or congratulated.
    Not an insult, but an expression of how I feel about a particular mindset.
    Privacy isn't predicated on whether someone is engaging in illegal activity or not.
    I'd be shocked if your home has no means of security (ie. locks on your front and back doors).

    Privacy and security are not same thing.

    They are mutually exclusive, but they can absolutely go hand-in-hand, I think that goes without saying.
    Security, like privacy, is also not predicated on what-do-you-have-to-hide?

    Nothing that they care to conceal, apparently.

    Let me say it again, MS is probably most scrutinized large organization in the world. EU would be among first to jump at any opportunity to at least grab a few billions in fines or to outright forbid such collection and usage of data.
    The EU can't help being a slave to the monopoly. Watch: The Microsoft-Dilemma - Europe as a Software Colony

    True, you can not have a privacy, without a proper security. I keep the security as the main priority, though I could not care less about the privacy, yet my security provides some privacy, like encrypted DNS or anti tracking extensions (used mainly to prevent malware, still it serves both ways).

    Everyone has something to hide, it might be important a few years later, but it will be too late to hide it then.

    Maybe it should be rephrase to include bad and wrongful/sinful things.

    What is OK today, might be considered wrong tomorrow. Like cannabis, it is allowed, but might be banned again and at the job interview they might tell, that they do not employ criminals and drug addicts, when someone will have a history of cannabis, just FB posts will do, people forget, that what is online lasts forever.
