To begin with, the NSA invades the privacy of American citizens through the use of surveillance. According to the text “People in most cities are probably captured on cameras daily, if not multiple times a day," Harper said. "As these cameras network together, and they as they are better capable at recognizing individual faces, people will realize just how they are being watched" (Moriarty). Innocent people are being recorded when they have no reason to be surveilled.
The main use of spying was mostly for political and military advantage. These countries were very successful on spying. However, in the 21st century surveillance is used in many different and complex ways. So many crimes and terrorist attacks forced governments around the world to use electronic surveillance to protect their own people.

Governments invade people’s privacy through many different ways such as spying through technological devices. For example in the novel 1984, government invaded the people’s privacy through the telescreens which left the citizens from Oceania with no privacy. Nowadays, the government invades our privacy through our phones. The privacy violations Americans experience today are similar to the privacy violations in 1984 because the government spy on us through our, Wi-Fi and GPS tracking. What we should take from 1984 is that we are being spied on by the government all time and that they are taking away our right of
I’m watching you. I can find out where you are, who you are with, and even listen in on your conversation. If someone came up to you and said this you could call the police and get a restraining order, but that will not work here because it isn’t a person doing this to you, it is a government agency. After the attacks on September 11, 2001, the power hungry National Security Agency has used terrorism as an excuse to ignore the American people’s rights and is collecting information illegally on everyone. They claimed that they are collecting information to protect us from terrorism.
In this paper, I argue against Government Surveillance. Although a society full of cameras could help solve some crimes, it is also true that the Constitution, through the fourth amendment, protects people from unreasonable searches and seizures by the government. Despite the fact that this is not a guarantee against all searches and seizures, only those that are deemed unreasonable under the law should be monitored. In addition, increasing political surveillance with the excuse of protection against war or enemies only fuels the fact that innocent people’s lives are being monitored. Finally, the information collected by the mass internet surveillance programs could be used for other harmful purposes since hackers could gain access to the databases and sell the information to other companies or terrorist groups.
Until someone from National Security Agency (NSA) asked his help to steal a black box which was invented to crack any encryption code. Martin acknowledged the job considering the possible threat that black box can do if it goes to wrong hands, but sooner he realizes that the NSA officer he spoke with is a rogue one.
(Beale Lewis)”. The average American knows that they are probably being watched. Yet they generally believe that it will never affect them or they believe other people are being observed not them. America is in denial about how much their actions are
The loss of PII not only affects individuals but also companies responsible for the safekeeping of PII. To understand how one can protect their personally identifiable information, one must first understand the threats and the consequences that come from that data being compromised. The main threat one’s personally identifiable information is by hackers . Hackers utilize a number of vulnerabilities to gain access to a computer system for the sole purpose of gaining information. The system is not limited to a person’s own personal computer, but also includes the systems that businesses use to store customer information.
We only notice how technology affects us at the moment but don’t realize how severe technology can change the way we live our everyday lives. Dehumanizing technology has to be controlled with policies and rules before it gets out of hand and people are going to start being arrested because they might potentially hurt someone. “In years to come, many legal experts speculate, brain scans and DNA analysis could help to identify potential criminals at the young age of three” (Karoliszyn 339). Precognitive policing and any technology that deals with violating our rights as humans cannot be implemented. Science and technology has made many mistakes before and can make man more in the future.
I like to have privacy of my own and I do not like what the government can just look through my text messages and know my location at every moment. I also believe that I are protected by the fourth amendment and the Supreme Court should involve technology in the fourth amendment. I don’t feel my information is save when it is in the hands of the police. Hackers have been more and more active over the years. A hacker will find a way to get in a police database and get the information of our cell phones.
Many of these types of companies may not want to help the NSA but due to a court order from the Attorney General they have to help the NSA (Alston, Wilton D). The NSA has these companies route them data that they think would be from or going to a foreign country. Then filters become placed over these data streams to search for any communications that might have to do with terrorism. Since the 9/11 attacks the filters in place have a much wider range than they did previously. The NSA says that they have systems in place to try to stop Americans communications from coming through, but some officials say that if they do collect this data they would not even need a warrant to do so.

Apple letting the FBI into their system to see terrorist data poses extreme risks, because as soon as Apple has “a back door installed, all kinds of people can walk in” (“Apple vs. The FBI”). Essentially, if the government can invade privacy, untrustworthy people can as well. Most importantly however, there must be limits placed on what the government can do, lest they infringe the basic rights of citizens. How can anybody stand having their data mined without consent? The government knows “Americans’ social connections … their associates, their locations at certain times, their travelling companions, and other personal information” (Engler).
They did this despite the CIA 's improvements in their technology which will still most likely not be good enough to stop any future hackings. The Chinese intelligence could still cyber hack the US by using OPM data, using the visas of people with US ties (U.S. pulls spies from China after hack). China most likely does this because they do not trust us after some of the decisions we have made in the past like dropping the atomic bombs on their neighboring country of Japan in World War II. Do not forget this
