Touch and You're Tracked / Trapped! (31 Jul 2018)

Prof. Dali Kaafar was interviewed by ABC Radio Sydney on the Wendy Harmer & Robbie Buck breakfast show on 31 July 2018, re his "Touch and You're Tracked / Trapped" paper presented at the PETS Conference in Barcelona recently.

Prof Kaafar's recent ABC Radio Interview outlined how easy it is to be tracked and explained how mobile apps access touch tracking patterns (like a fingerprint) without permission.

This interview was followed up with various articles in The Sydney Morning Herald "Every Move you Make, Every Swipe you Take," as well as the online version, "Your Smartphone Identity is at your Finger Tips" also in the Brisbane Times, The Age, Canberra Times, WA Today, MSN NZ and MSN Australia. Buzzfeed had "You Can Be Tracked Just by How You Swipe on Your Phone,"  CNET had "The Way You Swipe Your Phone Could be Used to Track You," and The Gadget Guy had "Seems Like a Touch, a Touch too Much."
