The Plan to Use Fitbit Data to Stop Mass Shootings Is One of the Scariest Proposals Yet
Last week, the Washington Post reported that the White House had been briefed on a plan to create an agency called HARPA, a healthcare counterpart to the Pentagon’s research and development arm DARPA. Among other initiatives, this new agency would reportedly collect volunteer data from a suite of smart devices, including Apple Watches, Fitbits, Amazon Echos, and Google Homes in order to identify “neurobehavioral signs” of “someone headed toward a violent explosive act.” The project would then use artificial intelligence to create a “sensor suite” to flag mental changes that make violence more likely.

German competition watchdog toys with ban on some Facebook data-slurps • The Register
A preliminary ruling from the watchdog in 2017 accused Facebook of abusing its market dominance to "limitlessly amass every kind of data" on its users. [...] the German watchdog could move to ban some of this data collection. However, it said the order might take the form of a deadline, rather than a call for immediate changes. If Facebook doesn't comply, ultimately the watchdog has the power to issue multi-million-Euro fines.

Apple can't protect you from data trackers forever. No one can
The Ghostery privacy tool has thousands of trackers in its database, and it's adding about 20 to 30 new trackers per week.

These trackers use tactics like device fingerprinting, which allows advertisers to know who's viewing their content based on data your browser gives over. The chances that visitors to a website have the exact same settings, fonts, plug-ins and browser version as you are pretty small, and it allows trackers to set up "fingerprints" for each device.
