Why Privacy Matters

Neil Richards

  • Explains what privacy is, what it isn't, and why it matters
  • Dispels numerous myths about privacy, including the arguments that privacy is dead, that privacy is about ownership or control of data, and that young people don't care about privacy
  • Identifies and analyzes four core values that privacy protects—identity, freedom, protection, and trust—and why they are so necessary for a healthy society
