Relationship between security, anonymity, and privacy

Security is an essential aspect of every web application developed today. Software developers must always ensure that their systems are secure and not prone to breaches by adversaries. As users interact with different web applications, their activities on the internet might be tracked by other external web applications and security agencies. This raises questions of privacy and anonymity. Why do these external powers get to see more of our data than necessary, and how do we stop them? Why do these external entities keep tracking us across the web and undermining our anonymity?

As such, security, privacy, and anonymity come together and feed into each other to create a safe environment.
