Abstract

The Right to Privacy and technological advancement have produced a condition of great strain and conflict. This study examines how progress necessitates fresh perspectives on the nature of such a right. The extensive gathering of data, along with the intrinsic benefits of modern tech, has generated the cynical notion that privacy is gone, and we should just accept it. Private information is no longer private since it has been taken or accessed through a variety of techniques, including data mining, phishing efforts, malware distribution, botnet assaults, and credit or debit card theft. People are attacked as a result of the use of these data, with the most common methods being blackmail or revenge porn. The Indian Penal Code, Code of Criminal Procedure, Information Technology Act, 2000, the Indecent Representation of Women (Prohibition) Act, 1986, and The Protection of Children from Sexual Offenses Act, 2012 are all significant legislation to be aware of.
