You already have tools and services that give you a say in the matter, and the best is yet to come.
We’re actually optimistic that people will have privacy 5 years from now than they do today.
Adopt the mindset of only giving out the personal data that you absolutely must—for example, at checkout or when signing up for an online account—to significantly reduce your digital footprint. Just as one bad actor can induce a privacy scare, one good actor – like Edward Snowden, or you – can take the necessary steps to reduce your exposure and strengthen your sense of privacy.

Now you can filter and monitor web activity in either Safari or Chrome, control internet access with scheduling and time quotas, and manage access to popular apps such as Ask.fm, Clash of Clans, Facebook, Instagram, i Tunes, Snapchat, Tinder, You Now and many others.
