The ongoing pandemic has brought technology into focus, with many using mobile working to keep in touch and to be able to continue to work from home.
However, as we discussed in our previous article “Your mobile privacy removed – Could this happen?”, we looked at how governments around the world were looking to develop contact tracing Apps, for use on smartphones, to help in their fight against the coronavirus.
In our previous article, we very much focussed on the mobile privacy risks posed by states holding or having access to this amount of personal and location-based data.
The video below offers further insights into the potential threat to the personal mobile privacy of millions of smartphone users. There is more focus on the combination of large corporations such as Apple and Google, and how they will be able to benefit from the app data.
Here you will hear from data security researcher on areas such as:
- Will intrusive surveillance turn the world into a dystopian society?
- How non-personal data can lead to your identity
- Bluetooth technology being exploited to provide your identity
- What else can this technology be used for that could impact your privacy?
We would welcome your thoughts on the issues raised in this video and look forward to hearing from you.
