PRIVACY, TRUST, and SAFETY

  • Apple is giving app developers more time to update for iOS 14 privacy permissions. Apple is still committed to the change and will enforce the privacy information requirement in 2021.
  • California’s next version of CCPA, CPRA (California Privacy Rights Act), has a new high profile supporter, former US Democratic Presidential Candidate Andrew Yang. Yang’s support is notable as he is both tech-savvy and may help bring both CPRA and privacy into more mainstream conversation.
  • security company Tenable has shared details of a study of TikTok’s #ForYou page, revealing that it is becoming a popular haunt for scams and fraud and exploiting TikTok’s ad network in the process, directing people to questionable apps, and more. It’s a worthwhile read.

Have an awesome Labor Day weekend.

PS. I rarely ask for anything, but if you have a moment, please listen to this podcast about #SeasonWithoutSwag about how this holiday season corporate holiday swag budgets can be donated to charity to help those in need (something I am supporting). If you’re not keen to listen to the podcast, read about #SeasonWithoutSwag here.
