'Gratis apps verzamelen informatie gebruiker'
Trouw
Wie op zijn smartphone een gratis applicatie installeert, geeft daarmee persoonlijke informatie prijs aan het bedrijf dat de app ontwikkelde.
Annemarijs's insight:

Van Google is al heel lang bekend dat het groot geworden is door het verzamelen van gegevens van het zoekgedrag van haar gebruikers. Apps met name de gratis apps doen het ook en in veel gevallen is dat lastig te voorkomen.

Practical Tips For Online Privacy | LISNews - from a librarian's perspective

Blake:

"Staying Safe Online" that will cover a million and one tips on how to keep you and your computer safe.

Privacy is a relative term. That is, the things that I consider important to my privacy, someone else might not care about. As librarians we usually key in on Confidentiality Threats. We want our patrons records safe. We also don't share that information with ANYONE else. In general, we are fierce about protecting our patrons’ privacy. This is something that has always set us apart from everyone else. Amazon won't do it. Google won't do it. Do I even need to say Facebook won't do it? People who come into the library or use our web sites don't worry about what's going to happen with their information (or at least they shouldn't need worry about it). They should know we are doing our best to guard their privacy. Keeping all our IT resources secure should be a large part of guarding that privacy."
