What is Privacy?

Asking for privacy or personal space because of your personal preference and due to your religious or cultural sentiments is not a crime nor does it imply you are ‘up to something’ and have something to hide. Today, privacy is incorrectly mixed with the constitutional right as if it is a right earned by us.  Privacy is at the core of creation, even animal prefer privacy.

We build walls and fences to protect our homes and have a private place. Within such a private place, we have windows with curtains and draperies. Within this private place, as humans, we live our private life with a sense of protection. Previously confined to a private place, our personal expressions and behaviors are now extended onto the Internet. We perform a lot of activities online that are reflections of our personality and values. This new virtual landscape is unprotected, companies, in the name of free services, have full legal access to it.

Online privacy enables you to express yourself without being tracked, certain expressions can bring shame or embarrassment when revealed in public. Your private information when analyzed and sold creates predictive behavior often hurting you in obtaining bank loans, college applications, marriage, school, job opportunities, airline tickets, house rents, etc.  Further, online surveillance and machine learning targeted toward your online behavior are intelligence gathered to sell to the highest bidder which is beginning to interfere with your private life.

No Snooping

Many people say “Well, I don’t care for privacy” either because I have nothing to hide or I don’t mind if someone is tracking my behaviors. It is akin to saying “I don’t mind if you see me taking shower or doing something very personal”. Perhaps individuals fail to understand the downside of letting someone track personal behaviors.

The government surveillance on its citizens is NOT a violation of privacy. Individuals get pat-down and screened at the airports for security. The fact that the government has access to your private data should only concern you if you are a bad guy. People are misled to believe that government surveillance is the biggest privacy issue in the world. If you are not a person of interest, your data is weeded out.  We should worry more about the companies collecting data about a personal life that reflect personal interests, which when known can be detrimental to our interests. Unfortunately, the government has been made a scapegoat regarding privacy invasions by large internet companies.

Dooth is a Privacy Platform

The Dooth Platform offers data privacy, information security, and personal safety. Your online activities─ emails, instant messages, shared documents, shared files, and other online activities are fully protected. Online activities performed on the Dooth Platform are private, encrypted, and secure.

No Tracking. No Profiling. No Prying eyes.  No Stalking. No Sneaking Peaking!

As humans, we have a social and private life. Certain aspects of our lives require privacy and should be done in private. Dooth is a daring effort to build a Private Internet that extends the Public Internet. We looked beyond technology and innovation, which is only as good as the people who are behind it. To build such an “impossible” platform, we looked into the history and found an ethically staunched messaging profession (called as “Dooth”) in ancient Indian civilization that guaranteed the privacy and security of messages exchanged.

  • Your online activity and data are your property. Nobody should have access to it other than yourself and the individual it was intended for.
  • Your habits and behaviors cannot be freely sold to target you
  • With the advent of the Internet of Things, machine learning and predictive analysis, privacy is beginning to hurt consumers (for the most part unknowingly), and this needs to be stopped.

Privacy in Today’s world

We build walls and fences to protect our homes and have a private place. Within such a private place, we have windows with curtains and draperies.

Certain sensitive personal behavior, when revealed in public, can often bring shame or embarrassment and can hurt financially or in other contexts.

Concept behind Dooth

Dooth is based on the concept of a ‘messenger’- a historical and oriental profession in India that existed in the medieval days to send and receive messages amongst the royals and the elites. The job of a messenger, or a Dooth, was to deliver a message without compromising its security, let alone read its contents. The Dooth’s sole responsibility was to convey the message or perish in the effort. This method ensured that there were no security breaches or invasions of privacy.
