Episode 7: Out of control
In this episode we chat with two of the main contributors to the #OutofControl report, Finn Myrstad, Digital Policy Director for the Norwegian Consumer Council and Tor Bjørstad, Application Security Lead in mnemonic.
The report uncovers how every time we use apps, hundreds of shadowy entities are receiving personal data about our interests, habits, and behaviour. This information is used to profile consumers, which can be used for targeted advertising, but may also lead to discrimination, manipulation and exploitation.
