We all use the Web every day. While we browse the Web, numerous companies are spying on our online activities by using Web technologies: they collect information about pages we visit, buttons we click and text we type. Having all this information collected, they show us advertisements or may ask us to pay a higher price during online shopping.

In this talk, I will talk about privacy on the Web, and I will answer the following questions:

  • Why we should not say "I have nothing to hide"and we should be concerned with our online privacy?
  • Why once I searched for a product to buy, this product is "following" on every site I visit?
  • What are the techniques companies use to track me across websites?
  • How can I protect myself from companies tracking my activities online?
