  • Tracking user preferences, location etc.
  • Convoluted privacy policy changes
  • Disturbing and annoying advertising in apps or on websites
  • Targeting with commercial and political messages
  • Unwanted notifications and marketing
  • Use of personal data for commercial purposes
  • Exposing private messages add emails publicly
  • Exposing search history publicly
  • An app posting on user’s behalf
  • Difficulty to export personal data
  • Difficulty to cancel a subscription
  • Hidden fees and costs not explicitly mentioned
  • Importing contacts of friends
  • Trolling and stalking online
  • Data breach of login, password and credit card details
  • Gmail, Facebook, Twitter or Instagram accounts being hacked.
