We all want privacy and security on our devices. But there are so many options and settings, we have to dig a bit for the ones we want.
There’s another dimension we should think about when seeking more privacy and security. We have some control over a spectrum.

But we can and should control this spectrum at our end too, for example when sharing our devices with other people.
