Apple and Google release marks 'watershed moment' for contact-tracing apps
Apple and Google have released กลุ่มลับไลฟ์สด18+ a software tool that will make it possible for nations to release coronavirus contact-tracing apps that adopt the firms' privacy-centric model.
It offers developers access to added Bluetooth functionality to solve a problem existing apps have of iPhones sometimes failing to detect each other.
Android and iOS device owners will have to carry out system upgrades.
But some countries - including the UK - are pursuing a different approach.
"The release of these APIs [application programming interfaces] along with HD the operating-system updates will be a watershed moment for the development and adoption of proximity-tracing apps," said Marcel Salathé, an epidemiologist at the Swiss research institute EPFL.
He added that apps that adopted the protocol should be able to be made "interoperable" - meaning that citizens can continue to be contact-traced as they cross from one region and/or country to another. That could potentially help reduce travel restrictions imposed because of the virus - at least for those using the apps involved.
The app was not "a silver bullet" - but "user adoption is key to success and we believe that these strong privacy protections are also the best way to encourage use".
On-device matching Contact-tracing apps are designed to automatically log when two people come into proximity to each other for a significant amount of time.
If one is later diagnosed with the เว็บบาคาร่าออนไลน์ coronavirus, the other can be given an alert, which might suggest they self-isolate and/or request a medical test of their own.
But the authorities believe adoption has been hampered by two factors:
concerns the technology poses a privacy risk restrictions Apple places on third-party apps' use of Bluetooth in the background In theory, the new system should address both these issues.
Its "decentralised" approach locates contact-matching on devices themselves rather than a centrally controlled computer server.
And this aims to cut the risk of either hackers or the authorities using the database of who met whom and for how long for other purposes.
But the UK's NHS and its counterparts in France, Norway and India say the centralised approach gives them greater insight, making it easier to tweak the risk model that decides who receives which type of alert.
Apps that adopt Apple and Google's API can customise it within certain limits.
But they will not be able to log, for example, a phone's global positioning system (GPS) coordinates.
"Not collecting some kinds of data, such as สมัครแทงบอล location, is a policy decision, not an engineering one," technology consultant Benedict Evans said.
"But Apple-Google have to build something for every phone on Earth, [potentially] including China and Iran, and think about how it could be abused.
"How much you need the extra data and whether it's worth the privacy risks is a matter of opinion."
Canada Facebook fined $6.5m over 'false' privacy claims[editar]
Facebook will pay a multi-million dollar penalty for making "false" privacy claims in Canada.
The C$9m ($6.5m; £5.3m) fine is part of a settlement over the company's handling of users' personal information between August 2012 and June 2018.
Canada's independent Competition Bureau said the tech firm improperly shared data with third-party developers.
Facebook says it "did not agree" with [กลุ่มลับไลฟ์สด18+ https://www.ufa700.com/กลุ่มลับไลฟ์สด/] the finding but wants to resolve the matter.
On Tuesday, Canada's Competition Bureau announced the tech giant will pay the penalty after concluding "the company made false or misleading claims about the privacy of Canadians' personal information on Facebook and [messaging app] Messenger".
The competition watchdog said it found that Facebook's privacy claims were not consistent with the way it shared personal dataof users with some third-party developers.
A Facebook spokesperson told Reuters that "although we do not agree with the Commissioner's conclusions, we are resolving this matter by entering into a consent agreement and not contesting the conclusions for the purposes of this agreement".
The social media giant has also agreed to not make any false or misleading representations about the disclosure of personal ดูหนังออนไลน์ HD information as part of the settlement.
The tech firm has faced criticism in recent years over its handling of fake news during 2016 elections, as well as the improper sharing of user data in the Cambridge Analytica scandal.
Facebook was found to have allowed Cambridge เว็บบาคาร่าออนไลน์ Analytica, a British political consulting firm, to access to the data of millions of users.
The data was acquired via a quiz hosted on the social media platform, which invited users to find out their personality type.
As was common with apps and games at that time, it was designed to harvest not only the user data of the person taking part in the quiz, but also the data of their friends.
The data of an estimated 87 million Facebook users was shared worldwide. About 620,000 of those were in Canada.
In January, US regulators announced a record $5bn fine against Facebook to settle privacy concerns.
In October 2018, Facebook was fined £500,000 by the UK สมัครแทงบอล Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) in for what it called a "serious breach" of the law.
And in March, Australia's privacy regulator said it was taking Facebook to court over the Cambridge Analytica matter.
Facebook adds more ad-tracking controls in the UK In December, Facebook said its social network site counted an average of 1.7 billion active users each day during that month.
It has an estimated 24 million monthly active users in Canada.
