RE: Pokémon Go a year after the hype. Are the privacy issues still a concern and how does a free app make money?

in #technology5 years ago

Great article, something everyone that uses "free" apps should be aware of. Now the question becomes which companies do you feel you can trust with the data they have on you, because at this point with so many companies collecting data it is nearly impossible to avoid having yours collected. BTW...

Hi @mk40 and @ocd, of course you can share! Great pieces you already shared; I'm following you now :)

Regarding your very valid comment: indeed people should ask themselves which companies they trust with their data. Unfortunately, you won't always know with which 'third parties' these companies share your data like Niantic does.

Another issue is that companies buy and sell databases. The real value lies not the information you provide in your profile, but all the other information that company can acquire about you by simply buying or combining databases. I'll write another article about that soon.

I'll be keeping my eye out for that next post!
