App Privacy

Many apps collect extensive personal data, including your location, contacts, and browsing habits, often without your full awareness. This data can be used for targeted advertising, sold to third parties, or even exploited by malicious actors. We'll teach you how to review app permissions, understand privacy policies, and use privacy settings to control what data is shared.

A Closer Look at

App Privacy

When you download an app like Instagram onto your iPhone, it's important to understand that the app will collect various types of information from your device. This can include your contact information, browsing history, location, sensitive data, financial information, health and fitness data, purchase history, and more. The Social Life program will train students how to evaluate apps and understand what data they collect. Additionally, we will demonstrate how to protect private data and ensure as much privacy and security as possible while using apps.

This screenshot below is from the Apple App store, you can check this on your own Apple phone (Android works too). If you click on the "see details" on the right, you will get the full list of data that can be taken off the phone by Instagram and used for various purposes. This is a big problem and highly invasive! We go into more details about this and much more in "The Social Life" program.
