Episode 38: Your phone is spying on you | Privacy miniseries

Do you know what your favorite apps are doing with your data? And who exactly are these entities that are capitalising on selling this kind of information?

We’re kicking off our new miniseries about privacy with investigative journalist Martin Gundersen.

Martin works at NRK, the Norwegian public broadcaster, where he writes about IT security, privacy and social media. He’s here to tell Robby about what he’s found after working on a news story about data brokers, companies that gain access to mobile app data, since 2019. His findings has received international attention, and he talks with Robby about the privacy risks associated with these companies and shares his thoughts about what we can do to prevent or limit being tracked.

Stay tuned for more episodes on privacy in the coming weeks.
