This essay will show that rather than the Internet being a guarantor of liberty it is more an intrusive source of surveillance. Mobbs (2003) defined internet surveillance as monitoring the everyday activities and communications of individual’s.

Sharman (2012) stated, Internet shopping is on the increase globally, because it is convenient and frees up personal time.
