Unless you have made a real effort to stop it, your smartphone is probably being tracked by organisations you are barely aware of. Even if you look into it, there is a lack of clear and neutral information to help people make informed choices.
Emerging Field and Twigged have created a playful prototype to help people understand how tracking works, and why, and what you can do about it. Their work is funded by the Benchmark Entrepreneurs in Residence Programme.
The team will launch their prototype and make a case for a public information campaign to improve the general population’s understanding of location data privacy. The event will walk us all through the experience of having our location data collected, and what we can do.
The presentation will be followed by a panel discussion with privacy and location data experts.
