What is privacy? Why, how, when should it be respected?

in #privacy3 years ago

Wikipedia defines privacy as;

the ability of an individual or group to seclude themselves, or information about themselves, and thereby express themselves selectively. The boundaries and content of what is considered private differ among cultures and individuals, but share common themes. When something is private to a person, it usually means that something is inherently special or sensitive to them. The domain of privacy partially overlaps security (confidentiality), which can include the concepts of appropriate use, as well as protection of information. Privacy may also take the form of bodily integrity.

Privacy is very important to each and everyone of us yet very few people respect the privacy of others. I remember one day a friend of mine was so burnt on checking out his fiance's whats app messages because he had suspicions that she was going out with another guy... On consultation, I was very clear about the matter, I told him to respect the lady's privacy and even if he had the chance to look he shouldn't as this has far reaching consequences....

Well, on the surface he seemed to have accepted my council but he still got into the lady's phone anyways and the consequences was great, she was speaking to lots of guys and this broke down my friend...he could not even eat anything for days yet he could not confront the girl because of the means he used.....

Meanwhile he himself had a lot of ladies on his list who he had some kind of romantic chat with even though he never saw some of them...he could not apply this same scenario for the lady and only left himself bitter. In the end the relationship was destroyed and he still regrets losing the girl....

Privacy is very important and no matter what there are boundaries not to cross... But for this man and many others, privacy simply does not click.....

Please, lets realize just how important privacy is and learn to respect it...This man made me like;
