You’ve heard it all your life:
If you’re not doing anything wrong, you don’t have to worry about getting stopped by the police.
That’s kind of like:
Be honest on your tax return and the IRS will leave you alone.
That type of thinking is the same reasoning that keeps you from using a VPN:
I have nothing to hide, so why do I need privacy?
But there’s something about humanity. You don’t want everyone to see you naked, do you? You don’t want everyone to know your bank balance. You don’t want everyone to know your health problems. Heck, you probably don’t even want everyone to know how much money you make.
Why is Internet Privacy Important?
Edward Snowden probably thought a revolution would start after he disclosed that the U.S. Government is snooping on every single internet user in the USA. He was wrong.
What about WikiLeaks? As an open journalism website Wikileaks let us know all sorts of lurid details about how the U.S. Government is monitoring, tracking, and entrapping innocent citizens.
Have you thought about Google? That globalist corporation has recently unveiled its plan to capture everything about you.
Meanwhile, Facebook has been busted with unprecedented privacy violations.
Also, Twitter and other social media giants have mechanisms in place that control what you can see, based on who you are.
That’s only the tip of the iceberg.
What’s amazing is that knowing what you already know, you’re asking us, “Why is Internet Privacy Important?”
We’re going to answer your question right here, right now.
HINT: When we’re done, you’re going to want to buy an anonymous VPN service. Guaranteed.

Although generational attitudes regarding privacy are in flux, privacy still matters. Here’s what Ed Snowden, the famous NSA whistleblower says about the matter:
If you think privacy is unimportant for you because you have nothing to hide, you might as well say free speech is unimportant for you because you have nothing useful to say.
Of course, in the modern socio-political climate, some people may not understand the importance and value of free speech.
In short, some people only recognize the value of what they had after it’s gone.
Additionally, privacy is a social good. Just as some people may not exercise their God-given right to free speech, they may want to use it in the future. For that reason alone, it’s worthwhile to protect free speech for everyone.
Furthermore, having everything “out in the open” doesn’t necessarily benefit you or anyone else. After all, in the age of #FakeNews, we have seen people taken out of context and false narratives built atop isolated facts.
