Thing 4 – Digital Security

This was a worthwhile and long overdue exercise.

I was quite pleased with my permissions settings on my device – only one app had been given unneccessary permissions.  This was a game my son had installed.

I downloaded the My Permissions app through the Apple Store and was surprised to find that three apps had permissions to access my inbox and contacts through my Facebook account.  One app had permission to use my location totally unnecessarily and three apps required basic information.  My Instagram account is secure.

This exercise lead to an audit of my Facebook privacy settings and the location and other settings on my device. I’m enjoying learning about things I have always put in the “too hard basket”!
