Description

Mobile devices are now much more than just a communication tool. They serve as a wallet, a media player, a GPS, and much more. With greater efficiency comes greater risk for breach of privacy. Many legal teams take care in crafting terms of service regulating data use, only to have users quickly accept the terms in order to access their favorite mobile applications. Sharing photos, geolocation data, and personal information are all regular components of mobile device use, and as a result many users are unaware of the security, privacy, and potential civil liberty violations that can occur from this use.
