Independence Day – The Good Old Days When Only the NSA Read your Email

This time of year, we usually find ourselves reflecting on the great freedoms we enjoy as Americans, thanks to the bravery of our founding fathers and the militia men and women of that era.

Several years ago, we reported an analysis of the alleged revelations made public by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, as a foreshadow of a rising threat to the Constitution which was put in place to protect these freedoms, including 4th Amendment protection from unreasonable searches.

Today, the privacy revolution continues to evolve, with the face of “Big Brother” shifting to “Big Tech” and the whistleblower being the United States Congress. Technology can be used by some to search and seize your digital identity and private correspondence, but remember that you also have access to technology that you can easily use to protect yourself.
