What if Google bought Opiria?
newsonjapan.com -- Jun 13
Opiria is gaining more and more exposure as of late, which is unsurprising given their creative and original idea.

It was only a matter of time until a company would develop a platform that allows internet users such as you and I to protect our personal data from brokers, and even sell it to companies ourselves. It stands to reason that such an innovating idea would become a powerful phenomenon, but nobody could have predicted that Google themselves would be interested in purchasing that type of company.

After a successful interview at Nasdaq, where he explained more about the revolutionising effect Opiria could have on the future of internet data usage, Dr. Christian Lange (Opiria's CEO) has been enjoying the rest of his time spent on the West Coast and shared pictures with his followers.

One particular photo shows him outside the Google headquarters, making friends with the Android mascot Bugdroid. Furthemore, there are sources who prefer to remain anonymous which suggest that Christian Lange has been in contact with Google regarding the possibility of Opiria's purchase by the giant search engine.

Because of the latest data scandal, people around the world are quite upset with the poor handling of their personal data, and so it is reasonable to assume that Google would attempt to make amends by amalgamating into their business model a company renown for their excellent data security and just ideals.

Lately, Facebook has been the target of many complaints regarding the mishandling of users personal data, with many of them being disgruntled due to the ample violation of privacy that has occured as of late. It would be a sensible next step for Google to avoid that particular course of action by appeasing the masses of dissatisfied users, and Opiria is more than qualified to not only secure their private data, but also give them the opportunity to generate a substantial income in their spare time, just by browsing the internet.

Regardless of the future involving a potential partnership between Google and Opiria, the reality is that recent events command better protection for our personal data considering it represents an issue that affects all of us, despite our field of work, our religion, country or personal taste.

We need to feel safe when we are at home enjoying our free time, browsing the internet at our leisure. Opiria is willing to undertake this task with or without Google, and they will most likely be successful since the vast majority of the world shares their view of complete control of personal data.
