Tending to your #privacy is like making sure you have your #vaccination. Even if you have no particular personal risk, there are vulnerable people around you: Whistle blowers, human rights activists, investigative reporters, the wrongfully pursued. If everyone sells their privacy except a few, those few stand out and are cornered quickly. But if it is a societal norm to protect your privacy, these heroines and heroes of our time are protected as well.
This is also why Netpol called to normalize face covering at all protests:
"Ultimately, we hope that even the fluffiest, most peaceful demonstration will involved people covering their faces, often for no other reason than an act of solidarity with others who have a greater need for anonymity."
