Session:Consumer protection in the murky world of phone permissions
|It seems like every few months a story breaks about a certain phone app misusing its permissions to collect user data without their knowledge. The result is users become fearful of certain apps, but have no way to comprehensively get a sense of how protected their phone is.
It seems that there should be a resource for users to get a listing of what specific versions of specific apps are doing with phone data in order to decide whether to install them. This session will discuss the feasibility of such a resource, and how one might go about constructing it.
