Consumers would pay extra to protect their data

Study finds U.S. consumers ready to pay for privacy

Conventional wisdom says Americans won’t pay for privacy, but this research study used conjoint analysis to show that half would pay at least $8 per month for social media product that didn’t keep or sell their data. Half would also pay $30 extra for a smartphone that was similarly private. On the other hand, about 40% wouldn’t pay anything extra. The study was conducted, apparently just for fun, by Ajit Ghuman, who runs product marketing at a retail customer engagement platform.

New "Check in Scotland" COVID19 app raises privacy concerns

The Scottish government has introduced a new check-in app to collect details of people as they visit businesses and other venues, including pubs, restaurants, hair salons and houses of worship. By law, the government specifies that this data must be kept for 21 days, and then must be destroyed or deleted. This is designed to work in concert with the country's health service's "NHS Scotland Test and Protect" initiative to test, trace and isolate from people who have the virus. The concern is that the new check in data will capture intrusive data about individual habits and locations that will be stored in a centralized database.
