Ask CDT Video: Mobile Apps Privacy
Center for Democracy & Technology
President Leslie Harris
2/2/2011

Harris takes questions about mobile apps privacy and provides answers based on the CDT privacy perspective.  Some of the questions are ones that are important to ask and will likely be discussed in the tech community for some time.  The questions asked in the video included:

  • What responsibilities do Apple and Google have to police data collection through their mobile operating systems?
  • Why does a music app need to access your address book and phone calls?
  • For unique device identifiers (UDIDs), many argue privacy isn’t an issue because UDIDs are anonymous and not personal data – what are your thoughts?

You can watch the video in full below to see how Harris answered the questions.
