mHealth Wearables and Apps: A changing privacy landscape
The use of wearables and smartphone apps to collect health-related data (mHealth) is a growing field. Wearable and health apps can continuously monitor our physical activity, sleep, heart rate, glucose levels, etc. They provide a rich data set that can supplement the data from occasional doctor's visit. But what are the privacy considerations of mHealth? We will explore global privacy principles, discuss the tension between anonymity and data utility, and propose ways to improve privacy notices/policies.
