Privacy and Apps

PrivacyDo you stop and think before accepting the terms & conditions of an app? Most of us don’t but it might surprise you that the terms & conditions could be accessing a lot of your personal data. The following short videos highlight this.

  • #Privacy Project (27 Jan 2015) “Some of the most popular apps on your smartphone ask for permissions that expose data to outside” (2mins)
  • Video: Why digital app T&Cs fail in the real world (8 Jan 2015). “If your APP was a shop assistant”; This video is in Danish with English subtitles. It humorously makes the point that apps collect information that we would not willingly give to a stranger if they asked us the same questions in the real world (~2mins)
