Even with \"Nothing to hide\", the user want to protect the privacy of their bits and bytes. Encryption is an important tool for this, and stream ciphers are a major class of symmetric-key encryption schemes. Algorithms such as RC4 (used in WEP/WPA, BitTorrent, SSL), A5/1 (GSM telephony), E0 (Bluetooth), as well as AES in counter (CTR) mode, are important examples of stream ciphers used in everyday applications.
