George Orwell’s 1984 depicts its citizens being under constant supervision. The main way they’re supervised is through the “telescreen” in everyone’s living room. The narrator tells us that “so long as he remained within the field of vision which the metal plaque commanded, he could be seen as well as heard”. Clearly showing that citizens could be spied on at any second without any trouble. He goes on to say that “There was of course no way of knowing whether you were being watched at any given moment...the Thought Police plugged in on any individual wire was guesswork”. This shows that someone could be tapped into without knowing, and would never find out when, or if it had happened. In an article written by Sara Malm, we’re informed that the Federal Bureau of Investigation has a technique to tap into our webcam monitors without us knowing. The article goes on to say the FBI has been tapping in to citizens computers for several year without their consent. Using a malware program that stops the ‘recording light’ from turning on when they’re watching. All this sounding eerily similar to how the thought police control the citizens in 1984.
