    About 80% of my friends, neighbors, co-workers have NO IDEA about privacy.
    Even my closest family member reminds me that the "smartest" Oprah once informed her millions of fans/followers,
    "If your spouse tries to be privacy-smart on the Internet, he/she/it has something to hide from YOU".
