The California Consumer Protection Act goes into effect in 2020, and other state and federal laws are on the horizon -- but is it possible that these state laws will really provide us privacy? How many readers take the time to read the privacy policy, or click agreement, when they download a new version of an app on their smartphone or tablet? Probably none. It is great to share our GPS location with the apps so they know where we are to give directions on maps -- or recommend restaurants, since the apps know our eating preferences, right?

Probably not. Google and a few others are on every site, tracking everything you do. Even sites that complain about Google, use Google tracking. There are ways to limit some of this, but never all of it. VPN's help, and there are Google analytic blocker addons, but none are 100%. Also your ISP knows pretty much everything. For an OS Linux Parrot OS with anon surf and TOR is the best I have found for privacy, but that comes at a cost, as some sites will not render correctly, or work at all.

If my employer requires me to return to the company's office full-time to perform my job, I will...
Agree, because I like my job regardless of where I perform my duties.
Comply, because I can't afford to lose my current job.
Go with the flow, but start looking for different employment.
Resign immediately, so I can dedicate all of my time to find a job that better suits my needs.
Try to negotiate a hybrid work from home / work in office arrangement with my employer.
