Digital privacy

"Later this month, Apple will update its policies so that in most cases when law enforcement requests personal information about a customer, the customer will receive a notification from Apple". With these words Kristin Huguet, a spokeswoman for the company, reveals the future of the new management user privacy.

Apple is not the only one that tell your customer that their data will be transferred to the government. Google, Facebook, Microsoft and Yahoo in a few months these days also gave separate statements about it. Causes, discomfort aroused by the knowledge of the tactics of the NSA and government of half the world. The new one has a but, and this time will be the judge to decide whether the consumer should be warned or not, and how could it be otherwise, shall be exempt any requests that come directly to national security.

Privacy in the Post-Snowden era. A massive awareness that is taking large technology to take action on behalf of users. Facebook announced this week at its developer event that from now on, Facebook Connect can be configured to make connections in third-party services without giving them sensitive data. Thus, stands as one of the most comfortable and useful methods from the client, ensuring your data will remain in good hands.

And also knew the decision of Google (without forgetting that is motivated by a complaint) stop tracing of email communications of its Apps for Education users, Google's suite implemented in most universities and colleges. It thus ended contextualization in display advertising across its services. A relief for those research groups used to use. And won a victory for privacy.
