The NSAs Massive Surveillance Operation Is Now Just A Little Less Massive

The NSA’s spying program is still vast, but it’s now a touch more restricted.

The agency has long collected texts and emails sent to and by Americans if those electronic communications contained the names of folks whom the NSA was conducting surveillance on, but that’s no longer the case.

Uber Simplifies Privacy Controls To Better Manage What Data Is Shared

Last November, the on-demand ride-hailing service redesigned its app with numerous enhancements, such as the ability to get to destinations based on your friend’s location, syncing with your calendar, and more. Along with the ability to collect so much data and use machine learning to provide the best routing and transportation options, Uber believes it’s giving riders an easy way to control what’s being seen by the app.

Of course, there have been a few recent incidents that could make riders concerned about what Uber sees — such as allegations around “fingerprinting,” a practice whereby developers could track users after they’ve deleted an app, something the company has denied doing. Continue reading
