Statistically speaking, I’m one of the members of society most likely to end up with a loaded gun shoved in my face. I’m not a cop. Or a soldier. I’ve never even held a gun before, let alone received any formal training.

We’ve reached a time wherein the wonder and amazement of the Internet is no longer a buffer for underlying privacy concerns. In fact, now is as good a time as ever to worry about the safety of your data, especially following such scandals as the Android/iOS tracking story, and, of course, the Sony hacks.

Most of the scandals popularised in the media stem from illegitimate causes such as a series of hacks. However, you could be exposing valuable data yourself just by using apps that you optionally, and intentionally, downloaded and installed. (more…)
