Online Privacy Should be a Right not a Privilege

Privacy is recognized as a fundamental human right by the UN and is widely discussed in almost every country around the world in some way within their constitution or other provisions; the concept of privacy is not only an individual right but also a social value. However, we find ourselves at a crossroad where online privacy does not uphold the same notions of dignity, privacy or the right to a private life that is upheld in society outside of the online world. With no single law to regulate online privacy the digital world is running amuck due to a lack of control, education and knowledge surrounding the topic. To make matters worse, there are a continuous number of businesses that are providing a charge in order to sustain your own personal right to privacy, making it inaccessible to the masses. 

There is an educational component that needs to be implemented into society as users are not aware of how much they are giving away. They are no longer in control of their own data and there needs to be a shift in societal views on how we portray online safety. During the pandemic we saw a mass shift of online learning with students switching from daily classrooms to online lessons, but little has been mentioned surrounding the threats this brings to the table to children’s privacy. This is only one small example of an absence of communication that highlights the sheer violation that takes place daily without a parent or child’s knowledge.

Aloha believes that privacy should be free to all, especially in the current internet climate where access to personal data is easily tracked and open to others. With the latest iteration of the world wide web, known as Web 3.0.

Decentralization is the first step to return the control from big corporations to the people. For example, imagine a world where you don’t have to use the Twitter app to access Twitter, but instead you can opt to use an alternative client and get a better experience. Just like your email, which is the same, but you can switch between different clients, who compete for its users with functionality and usability.

With rapid growth of decentralized apps and games around the web, users still don’t have a lot of simple ways to interact with them. Aloha provides a set of native tools to make a transition from web2 to web3 apps as transparent and as simple as possible while keeping users private.

Whilst this technology is still in its early days, it gains importance in the area of online privacy and security, and Aloha is one of the first to have crossed over to the Web 3.0 train, providing a secure and more private internet experience. This system is deemed to be revolutionary in the area of online safety.
