Is Apple Violating iPhone Users’ Privacy? (Restore it All Podcast #118)

Start listening

In this privacy-themed podcast, we start with Apple’s bombshell of a new feature, where they are scanning your pictures to see if you have any child porn on your Apple devices. While stopping child porn is a laudable goal, we discuss the privacy ramifications of this feature. We also discuss how Apple’s iCloud backups aren’t encrypted! The next topic is Luxembourg’s huge $900M GDPR fine levied against Amazon for failure to get permission to track users. Then finally we discuss Prasanna’s experience with using CCPA to find out how a company got his cell phone number. Spoiler alert: it’s a sad ending. We then round out the podcast by discussing whether or not we need a more Federal response to privacy in the US.
