Are New York’s Free LinkNYC Internet Kiosks Tracking Your Movements?

'It was an attractive deal: LinkNYC kiosks, at no cost to the city, would provide free internet coverage to anyone walking by. '

'Now an undergraduate researcher has discovered indications in LinkNYC code — accidentally made public on the internet — that LinkNYC may be actively planning to track users’ locations. '

'Since plans for LinkNYC were first unveiled, journalists, residents, and civil liberties experts have raised concerns that the internet kiosks might be storing sensitive data about its users and possibly tracking their movements. '

'In 2016, LinkNYC disclosed that the kiosks “may” contain cameras; by 2017, the cameras were operational. '

'LinkNYC’s current privacy policy already shows that the company sweeps up enormous amounts of sensitive data. '

I hope you read the article. It's creepy as hell (Google connections, what data they store, etc.).
