Description

A New York Times investigation has found that the information being collected about us through apps on our smartphones is far more extensive than most of us imagine — or are aware we have consented to. Guests: Jennifer Valentino-DeVries, Natasha Singer and Michael H. Keller, reporters who cover technology for The Times; and Gabriel J.X. Dance, deputy investigations editor. For more information on today’s episode, visit nytimes.com/thedaily.

A note about this episode: The Times identified a small number of people in the location data with their permission. It did not identify anyone else in the data.

So what are these apps that are tracking us? Is there something that can be done to reduce the risk of tracking?
