- TITLE: Privacy for mobile apps: Technical, regulatory and human challenges
SPEAKER: Nurul Momen (Karlstad University)
ABSTRACT: What is the most intimate device that you possess? If the answer is your mobile phone, you'd probably be interested in finding out how apps behave. In one end, we have a powerful device capable of collecting, monitoring, processing, transmitting data and in other end, this device is connected to hundreds of services through apps. Undeniably, users are being subjected to privacy exploitation due to the obvious reason - surveillance capitalism. We intend to turn the table around by simply asking - how do the apps behave?
