LogicLounge with Eva Galperin: Spouseware and Stalkerware
Spouseware and Stalkerware – Where Do We Go From here?
Powerful surveillance software for everyday use is widely available on the internet for affordable prices. Some are marketed as ways for employers to monitor the movements of their workers, or for parents to check electronically on the whereabouts of their children. Others promise to help you to reveal infidelity.
The spyware apps tune in your calls, text messages, real-time GPS location or encrypted messaging apps like WhatsApp. What is the impact of spouseware/stalkware industry on your everyday life? Where do the tech community, the police, and the policymakers stand on the issue of surveillance for private purposes?
The speaker of this public debate is Eva Galperin, a cyber security specialist whose goal is to raise a debate on spyware for mobile phones after discovering that such spyware was often used in sexual harassment and violence against women, as well as child abuse.
