That's sadly true. Protection of one's personal information is more so an illusion rather than a reality. Can we really say it wasn't like this in the past? It's issues like this that tend to drive me away from wanting to use online services. Unfortunately, we're just too dependant upon them in this day and age. It's why I'd rather not have everything linked up together. All you can ever do is go on and hope your details are never leaked or snatched.
