Day 1: What Your Phone Knows

Email a Friend

What does your phone know about you? And what can you do about it?

Welcome to the first day of our week-long series of podcasts and action-steps designed to help you take back your digital identity. We’re starting with trimming your digital exhaust - your metadata.

Many of your apps track your location even when you’re not using them. Others listen in via your microphone when you’re not talking to them. In this episode, renowned security technologist and cryptographer Bruce Schneier takes us on a guided tour of our phones and the metadata they’re giving away.
