You are one step away from the right advice
A “true friend” should be your best psychologist in time of problems, without future consequences. Being recorded in a database where any government body can dig in anytime can cause unprecedented future catastrophic problems. We are living in a world where whatever you do is recorded and will be used, not for your advantage, but to crucify your reputation, assassinate your person whenever they need to do so. We're simply helping others to help themselves the best possible way.
