Own Your Data

WorkshopsWhich device settings and privacy apps do you use to reduce your digital footprint?

Most free online services today are designed to capture user data in order to generate revenue through personalized advertising.  Our information is compiled and sold to those seeking to target individuals using highly specific demographic and psychographic data. There is growing concern that the targeted ads business model can be leveraged to influence behavior during elections and push individuals towards extremism.

In the workshop Tech Talks: Own Your Data (Apple & Android) we look at both the simple and advanced ways settings and apps can be used to ensure private communications and also limit the amount of data you are sharing with websites and online services.
