In the age where advertisers have trackers that work more like stalkers, why do so many people ignore privacy and security issues? Dave Farrington has a few ideas.
My unofficial survey tells me people know that Google and Facebook and other websites have trackers but they don’t know to the extent each of those online giants actually go to
trackstalk their users.
Apple could be part of the problem because it makes both privacy and security easier on each device than competitors.
Touch ID and Face ID are two good examples of Apple’s approach. Think of both as convenient security. Both enable a higher degree of security than an easy to remember– and steal– password, yet both are more convenient than a password.
Even Apple’s built-in Safari tracking safeguards are unknown to most users.
