I was sent this article by my mother to today about the Facebook messenger app
In short, it’s about the crazy set of permissions the Facebook messenger app asks for.
Snopes has a list of the implications of these permissions. Apparently this has parents freaked out all over the place. I took the opportunity to explain that Facebook already has access to most of that information anyway and how the safe project prevents that type of information disclosure. We’ve got another believer now.
Can safe help mitigate mic and camera usage for nefarious purposes? It seems to me that’s a no, but I’m curious.
