Podcast: iPhone privacy settings still allow apps to track users, as well as Android privacy measures



Last week, the Washington Post revealed that despite the transparency measures in updating app tracking, iPhone apps continue to track users. This poses a serious privacy concern, as the type of data collected on a user’s device may be specific enough to identify individual iPhones. And worse yet, the Washington Post revealed that this tracking occurs even when users explicitly ask apps not to. Apple’s iOS competitor Android has also implemented app privacy measures. In Android 11, app permissions are automatically reset if a user hasn’t used an app for a few months. Computerworld Editor-in-Chief Ken Mingis and Macworld Editor-in-Chief Michael Simon join Juliet to discuss iPhone privacy measures versus Android and how fingerprints affect individuals and businesses.
