Play episode

In episode 321, the hosts discuss how connected cars are sharing driving data with insurance companies, potentially leading to increased rates for drivers. They also talk about the anti-TikTok bill passed by the House, which could force ByteDance to sell TikTok or face a ban in app stores. The episode also covers a significant update to Signal, allowing users to use usernames instead of phone numbers, enhancing privacy. Insights into privacy policies, the importance of understanding consent, and the broader implications of data collection and sharing among different entities are also discussed.
