Unit 3 -Other Traces

Q.1 -Humans leave digital footprints in a myriad of places, sometimes totally unaware of their traces.  A recent update to Iphones enabled a change to apps being installed/already installed and the access they have to data, in particular location/tracking. Unless a user specifically opts OUT of the tracking, the automatic setting is to allow the apps to track their users. This is a significant risk for many users, particularly those who are younger, or those more unfamiliar with technology capabilities and their privacy vulnerability. Users may allow apps to access their browser searches/history, microphone and camera access, or social media likes etc, giving away valuable personal information.
