I think we're really exaggerating on this privacy issue. I mean, can't we all just be thankful for consistent personalization and protection. It's better from a certified company than random users on the virtual block to access your content. They do such things to ensure further advancement in our personal needs and unwanted habits from the content given to us.

Looks like the only way to send a truly private message and ensure it isn't intercepted is writing it on a piece of paper in a private room, then handing them the paper and making sure they only open it to read it in another private room.

Convenience always comes at a price, I guess.

Or use public key exchange and swap the keys via secure means (Like meeting in person and swapping thumb drives, then keeping them secret)
