Within the last year, consumers have expressed increased interest in online privacy. Both Apple and Google have released mobile phone security ads in response to the demand. The ads tend to be glossy or humorous, but provide few details on how your phone is secured. Most data privacy topics are difficult to package neatly in a thirty-second ad.
In this presentation, app developer Callie Busby will explain privacy options currently available on Android and iOS devices. Together we will learn how to audit your current mobile setup. There are a number of tricks that are easy to implement as well as more drastic changes to your habits. We will also touch briefly on the future of privacy protection, as Apple has announced a privacy upgrade to be released in late Spring of this year.
