What Is Prefuse?

Prefuse.org is our attempt at increasing awareness of data privacy and the issues with privacy online in today’s society. We hope that this website will:

  1. Educate people on how they are losing their privacy at an alarming rate
  2. Show them how to take their privacy back

How You Are Losing Your Privacy

Privacy was once considered a fundamental right of the western world; something many take for granted. However, in the last ten years, user privacy has become an increasingly scarce commodity.

This erosion is coming from all directions:

  • The government is spying on the public through increasingly sophisticated government agencies, and much of this data is shared between countries.
  • Tech companies are using location, searches, browsing patterns and more to build profiles of users so they can make more and more in online advertising sales.
  • Banks and governments are pushing people out of using cash and into using a controlled financial ecosystem.

How You Can Take It Back

The internet is a double-edged sword, and on the one hand, it is causing this expansion of anti-privacy trends. But it is also creating ways to take it back, including:

  • VPN
  • Tor
  • Private Operating Systems
  • Open Source
  • Blockchain
  • And much more
