Well the statement is so true in today’s fast pace life we have chosen “Ease of use over privacy” be it the use of net banking I ticket booking of railway, room booking, Darshan booking, you name it and digital world has it at your finger tips.
But with great ease of work, there is a greater risk of personal privacy at stake. The events happened in the recent is the burning example of privacy leak, be it Aadhar card information leak, facebook information leak.
