@diggity @privacylab @mozilla @mozfestprivsec Looks like a good talk, Sean; shame about the venue. I didn’t see mention in the slides of Google’s own apps (or even Google Play Services itself) being a tracker. Was this mentioned?
Also, did you happen to get a chance to also mention that Google itself is one of the largest trackers in the world and that Mozilla gets over a billion dollars from them for exposing people to their tracking by default?
I can assure you I don't hold back in regard to Google surveillance, in this presentation or others :) One of the slides has the @exodus stats showing Google services as the most pervasive trackers, followed by Facebook, and I recommend @fdroidorg over Google Play. etc. etc.
I did not bring up Mozilla Google funding, but I'm happy to do so if there's a next time. I did criticize #Mozfest for the trackers in the Guidebook app (see "The Elephant In The Room" slide).
I very much appreciate you keeping honesty in the privacy discussion. I try to do that too.
@diggity wish I could have made it. Looking forward to learning more.
