Abstract: Privacy is very crucial to users nowadays especially to the OSNs or SNSs, cloud storage, and e-commerce sites. In the era of millions of users throughout the world, it becomes increasingly difficult to protect their private information from being exploited by attackers. Revealing too much of information on those sites will give negative impacts to users as their personal information might be stolen from third parties. In this paper, we analyze the private information whether to reveal or not regarding the privacy concerns, information leakage, and how to improve privacy. Location is considered as private data that the users do not want to reveal as it might contain private and confidential information. A new technology called Geo-location enables our device to detect and record the information. Therefore, the security awareness among the users is important in mitigating the security issues. Thus, this paper discuss on the privacy level that we still have in OSNs, cloud storage, geo-location, as well as in reality.
