The Android and iOS ecosystems are a privacy minefield, filled with malware and untrustworthy software.  We'll dig into the world of mobile trackers, hidden code that runs inside the majority of apps.  Trackers might insert ads into apps, transmit your location, access personal information, or even follow your movements via ultrasonic tones, undetectable by the human ear.  Privacy Lab has approached the problem from many angles, and we'll explain basic forensic techniques such as static and network analysis.  We'll also demonstrate ultrasonic and bluetooth beacon tracking via the PilferShush app and explain basic steps you can take for a better, more private mobile experience.

Please bring your laptops and mobile devices.
