    and they also use the argument of "if you've got nothing to hide, you've got nothing to fear" like when regarding government surveillance.

    edit: It's painful arguing with them, like there can't be no alternative reasons to avoid showing them.

    They don't have the right to know everything you do offline. Maybe that reasoning works when you're five and below, but 17? No.

    That is the argument of tyrants who will just a quickly ship you off to prison or war as keep you safe from criminals and terrorists. If the governments wants to know something they should get a warrant. Your parents should trust you and ask you, if they are seriously worried then they must in my views make sure they know what you are doing. However parents should know where that line is. All to often parents could have helped their children if they could talk to each other.

    I was harshly criticised for even using incognito, though I'll clarify not by my father.

    If people want to actually find out, nothing's stopping them, and I'd say fair play.
