Everything has two sides. Similarly, human being has benefited from the development of Internet, so some of its disadvantages are also being revealed. Which are mentioned below.
Waste of time – If you go astray on the Internet, you will know for hours. And your
precious time will be spent while surfing the internet. And today instead of spending
time with friends, it is being spent looking at the waste on the Internet.
Not free – Internet has become a basic need. But to fulfill this need you will have to
loose your pocket. Only then you will get net connection. I think the net should be
free. What do you think about this? Please let me know by commenting.
Cyber Threat – Internet is synonymous with independence. Therefore, access to the
resources above it is easy. In the context of this accessibility, the danger of cyber
threats always hovers over the net user.
Loss of privacy – Today privacy is emerging as the biggest problem. People’s personal
data is being stolen and sold. Which is very important to avoid. Because your
personal data is your property while online.
Virus attack – A virus is used to keep your computer, mobile phone and other net-
enabled devices in your possession. Which is not possible for a common user to
Burglary in credit / debit card – If you do online shopping, then you must use credit
card or debit card to make payment. However, hackers can steal their information
and empty our bank account in seconds.
Lack of credibility – Anyone can share their information on the Internet. And it is
easy to become a star overnight by uploading videos to YouTube. However, this is
where freedom and accessibility is making the internet a garbage dump. Hence the
lack of credibility hits the net and not every net source can be trusted.
Diversity but not access – net is providing a common platform to people all over the
world. Therefore, the repository of information has become available in every region
and language. But the tools (search engines) that access this information are
controlling people’s thinking and are trying to make their own information and
personal information available to them. This is true to an extent, but there is a quiet
threat to the creativity of us humans.
