How metadata compromises you
“It’s only metadata,” is the catch-all excuse for mass surveillance – after all, if spies aren’t capturing what your message says
why should you care if they’re getting who sent it, what its subject
line is, where you and the sender are, and everything you do before and
after receiving the message?
Privacy International’s “Metadata” demolishes the rationalizations for mass surveillance in four short minutes. It’s a beautiful exploration of a vital subject.
