Description: The use of the new information and communication technologies (ICT) has led to significant changes in the daily development of the information society. Although most of those changes tend to improve our lives, ICT can endanger some of our fundamental rights. In this article, we describe the threats related to the identity of ICT users, and we summarize the countermeasures that can be applied in three especially important areas: Internet search engines, vehicular networks, and location-based services.
