A few years ago I would have said have at it. But laws and regulations have been passed that basically allow government offices to look at your internet History
, making it a struggle to obfuscate you internet activities. The Investigatory Powers Bill which came in last year was a real blow for internet privacy. Snowden himself said this about it: “The UK has just legalised the most extreme surveillance in the History
of western democracy. It goes further than many autocracies.”
There are no details about detection methods, what what type of activity would be considered worthy of chasing up, or indeed whether it is just browsing History
or extends beyond into things like raw data streams, Kodi data requests, gaming streams, etc. They also don't say which protocols they monitor and if that includes secure systems.
Most importantly, it doesn't say if it just applies to criminal law activities, or civil law activities, and how easy it would be for third parties to gain access to the information to pursue a civil case.
So IMO in the surveilance age we now find ourselves in and the lack of knowledge as to what is safe (relatively speaking), it is better to err on the side of caution and stop. I did a few years ago, I got a bit paranoid about it and came to the conclusion the risk of heavy fines outweighed the benefits.
Netflix, prime and youtube provide everything I need.
