Do you think schools should start teaching about data rights and privacy?

The amount of data generated continues to grow everyday. Protecting users' online identify and data becomes more and more complex. I believe it's important for the younger generation and people in general to better understand the value of their data.

I agree, the sheer number of possibilities of putting oneself at risk of having their personal information stolen with all the ways we are exposing it online makes me worried for the younger generation. Unlike with some traditional spheres, where you must be of certain age to consent to smth, the online world makes it that much easier to fall prey to some unhealthy and downright criminal practices. I would really appreciate it if schools could create curriculum to teach our kids about it for sure.

@justana 100% agree with you! I am a young adult and I do wonder how to educate the younger generation in a manner that they can use the Internet and benefit from all the great opportunity it has to offer while protecting their online identity and mental health.

Children are able to unintentionally share so much information about themselves that leave them susceptible to predators and other dangers. It's important that they are taught privacy to protect themselves, their friends and their families.

@complyant Agree. Additionally because of the way "privacy" policies are designed it makes users giving pretty much every right over their data. The absence of choice for users is concerning. Teaching the younger generation how to navigate the Internet and show them how much they get exposed online seems important to me!
