THESIS: Privacy has evolved and changed over the years. Online privacy on the internet has no specific definitions or limits. The issue of privacy fifty or a hundred years ago meant physical privacy; right of somebody to be secure in their houses and be guaranteed safety from harassment or unwarranted search. Those are the issues that concerned privacy in the 1790s. In the 2010s and indeed the future, online privacy is a very unclear component of privacy.
