A major concern about the rapidly progressing erosion of privacy is that it enables manipulation in political, economic, and social realms. While this concern is well grounded, the technologies that magnify these threats also offer promising means for ameliorating the damage to human society they cause. Although greatly increased manipulation by individuals and organizations will surely be a notable feature of society in the future, it is already giving rise to a new kind of privacy. The information opacity necessary for the new forms of privacy is arising and will be magnified through the use of obfuscation, deepfakes, and related methods that are rapidly improving and becoming more widely available.
