The present paper proffers the status of Right to Privacy at global level .The researcher honestly attempts to explore the historical roots of right to privacy. Evolution of this right at different countries is discussed shortly .As most of us reaffirm the fact that Britain is the mother of democracy. Here, too, primary prominence of the United Kingdom is evident as it is the country laying the foundation of right to privacy. United States again appears to succeed UK in invigorating right to privacy. People's quest for practising democratic values in common walks of life projected them to open the doors of privacy. There is no constitutional right to privacy in Australia, but there are some pieces of legislation which afford certain protection guards. Privacy is recognised as a fundamental right in Canada. The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, along with the federal Privacy Act, reaffirm the faith of Canadian masses in right to privacy.
