Such technologies cumulatively make privacy obsolete in our day to day activities. There are also legal responses that affect privacy in our society; it makes our lives permeable. Examples of these laws are self-regulation, privacy-enhancing technologies, data protecting laws, and property-rights based solutions in the context of the three structural obstacles on privacy enhancement (Froomkin 1461). Despite the great efforts to destroy privacy, there are still some ways to retain it.

Weston claims that privacy is of great importance as it enables us to adjust emotionally to day-to-day activities. Privacy can be termed as a dynamic process or a monotonic function. As a dynamic process, it is regulated so that it is sufficient to serve momentary needs, as well as role requirements (Marguilis 10). While, in a monotonic function, its intensity is evaluated; whether a person can have too little, sufficient, or too much privacy (Marguilis 10).
