Big Tech Is The New Big Tobacco

Free or subsidized branded cigarettes were distributed to troops during World War 1. By the time the war was over, a generation had grown up, and a large proportion of adults were addicted to the drug nicotine.

When society started to get wind that smoking was in fact unhealthy, the tobacco industry introduced different versions of cigarettes and changed their ads to convince the public that smoking these new cigarettes was healthy.

 

Big Tech Is The New Big Tobacco

In 1965 the US Government finally required Big Tobacco to place warning labels on all packaging.

Today Big Tech is giving away “free” products and they hope you get addicted to their convenience. While you never have to “pay” for these free products, revenue is generated from you using them.

Every time you do a free search on the Internet, or watch a free video, or send a free email you are taking another “digital puff” on the free “cigarettes” that Big Tech gave you.

You got addicted to how easy it was to be entertained, informed and communicate online.

While it took Big Tobacco over 100 years to reach $40B in revenue, Big Tech did it in just 14. Today the Internet advertising industry is worth approximately $125B, or THREE TIMES the size of Big Tobacco.

The biggest player in Big Tech, Google, was the first to offer a “healthy cigarette” with their incognito mode browser. We have commend them, for over 10 years experts told you to use this browser to be private online when in fact you were sharing your biggest secrets with Google.

 

Incognito Mode

The statement “Chrome won’t save the following information“, sure makes it sound like you’re private. Chrome, the browser may not save the information but the parent company, Google, sure does.

Thanks to Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook and Cambridge Analytica, the public started to wake up just how little privacy they have online and how much it is worth to Big Tech.

Just like Big Tobacco introduced new products to make you think smoking was healthy, new browsing solutions (and one dragged from the past) are trying to make you think you are private and secure.

Look at the wording they use.

 

Private Browsers Are Not Private At All

These ads do not fool health, er privacy experts.

Here’s the truth about online privacy and security.

If the browser runs on your computer, as it does with a virtual private network (VPN), private browser, Tor or with any browser extension, you are still smoking a “cigarette” regardless of how healthy (private) they make it sound.

If the browser renders the data sent from a website, ON YOUR COMPUTER, you CANNOT be completely private and secure.

We aren’t going to show you a scary Warning Label or gruesome picture of a long time smoker to get your attention, we are going to let you see for yourself.

Here is our Online Privacy Public Service Announcement. Try this test with ANY computer, browser or other “private” browsing solution.

Did your computer open? That means your browser runs on your computer. You cannot be completely private and secure online.

DO NOT WORRY, this was just a harmless demonstration.

We are trying to EDUCATE you and SHOW you just how easily you are identified, tracked (and sometimes infected) when browsing the Web with one of these private browsing products.

A private browser or VPN DO NOT hide you from Google because they CAN’T hide your computer.

Those “private browsing” solutions DO NOT hide your computer when you browse and it is YOUR COMPUTER that lets Big Tech track you.

If you want to prevent Big Tech from tracking YOUR computer, you must use the TraceFree Browser.

TraceFree Keeps Big Tech From Tracking You

TraceFree, the ONLY virtual private browser runs on a server in the cloud and NOT on your computer. No website can ever see or touch your computer because your computer never visits it. Our server visits the website, not your computer. This also means every browsing session is always virus free.

Big Tech still tracks the computer you’re browsing with but it ISN’T YOUR COMPUTER, it is our server. Google cannot match the browsing with you, your computer or your true location.
