You’ve probably heard that data on your buying habits, your phone calls, your activities, your friends, practically everything about you, is harvested, analyzed, and sold while you use your computer. Would you like to know how much your data is worth on the open market? (Usually more than a cup of coffee, less than lunch.) If you have nothing to hide, what difference does it make? How can you become more private? Is it worth the trouble? Marv can help you answer these important questions.
