Talking about it

Some time ago I've asked on Fedi how people talk about privacy with “normal people” (i.e. those less aware or not caring).

The most interesting responses:

When talking to someone about privacy, I'd first gage their openness to ditching some conveniences for better privacy. If there's no chance of that, then no point proceeding, IMO.
I guess this kind of similar to the idea in veganism where convincing someone to eat *less* meat is much easier than *no* meat. Yet it still makes a difference

Other ideas:

  • Ask for an unlocked device, to be used for several hours, unsupervised.
  • Give examples of data abuses, leaks, etc.
  • Ask how much a person would loose if their Google account got banned.
