Watchdogs warn COVID-19 apps come with privacy risks to Canadians - Bowen Island Undercurrent
OTTAWA — Governments that want to use smartphones to trace the movements of Canadians during the COVID-19 crisis should handle personal information with care, privacy watchdogs from across the . . .
OTTAWA Governments that want to use smartphones to trace the movements of Canadians during the COVID-19 crisis should handle personal information with care, privacy watchdogs from across the country warned Thursday in a united call for caution. Privacy commissioners have been warning of potential risks associated with government COVID-19 apps since provinces started musing about the idea a few weeks ago. The apps work by keeping a record of when one phone gets close to another, and then alerting users if they've come into contact with someone who has a confirmed or presumed case. Alberta introduced its ABTraceTogether app last week, and New Brunswick, Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Newfoundland and Labrador are looking at developing their own. "The choices that our governments make today about how to achieve both public health protection and respect for our fundamental Canadian values, including the right to privacy, will shape the future of our country," the federal, provincial and territorial privacy commissioners wrote in a joint statement Thursday. Federal privacy czar Daniel Therrien said the health crisis calls for some flexibility when it comes to the application of privacy laws, but there is a way to use technology to fight the spread of the novel coronavirus without sacrificing fundamental rights to privacy. "Everything hinges on design, and appropriate design depends on respect for certain key privacy principles," Therrien said in a statement Thursday. Therrien and the other commissioners said that while app developers need to respect Canada's privacy laws, those laws aren't always effective in the digital world. They released a set of guidelines for provinces, urging them to be transparent and accountable about how their apps work and what is being done with users' personal information. The commissioners stressed participation should be voluntary and users should provide clear consent to whatever they're signing up for. The apps should also be secure to safeguard personal data, which should be destroyed once the crisis is over, they said. Canada's chief public health officer, Dr. Theresa Tam, said her team is keeping an eye on the apps in development across the country to see if one could be adopted at the national level, but privacy will be the main concern. "I think if there are certain tools that are better than others, that's the kind of knowledge that you want to share," Tam said at a briefing Wednesday. "Not just whether the application works, but all of the policies that go with it, like privacy, which I think is the most paramount of some of the policy discussions." The Information and Privacy Commissioner of Alberta is already reviewing the app deployed in Alberta, and will be issuing recommendations to the provincial government. This report by The Canadian Press was first published May 7, 2020.
WhatsApp Payments, el sistema de pagos de WhatsApp, se estrenará este mes - TreceBits
WhatsApp Payments será el servicio de envío de dinero y pagos por WhatsApp que competirá con otros sistemas como Bizum y Twip.
WhatsApp, la plataforma de mensajería de Facebook que ya cuenta con más de 2.000 millones de usuarios en todo el mundo, empezará a implementar a finales de este mes un sistema de micropagos, similar al de otros servicios como Bizum. WhatsApp Payments permitirá a los usuarios realizar pagos y transferencias sin salir de la aplicación y se estrenará en la India antes de final de mayo WhatsApp Payments, que será el nombre que recibirá este sistema de pagos con interfaz o UPI (interfaz de pago universal), empezará a funcionar este mes en la India, uno de los mercados con más usuarios de la plataforma, y se irá activando paulatinamente al resto de regiones del mundo según la compañía vaya estableciendo acuerdos con sistemas financieros locales. El lanzamiento inicial en la India de WhatsApp Payments estará respaldado por ICICI Banks, Axis Bank, el Banco Estatal de la India y HDFC Bank. Se espera que otros bancos se vayan integrando, aunque de forma paulatina, garantizando que un posible aumento de las transacciones no sature los servidores de la compañía, sobre todo si se tienen en cuenta las condiciones actuales de confinamiento por el COVID-19. Es importante recalcar este punto, ya que significa que el sistema de pagos no estaría disponible para todos los usuarios de la plataforma desde el principio y que podrían pasar meses hasta que esté abierta para todos. Debido al confinamiento, es más necesario que nunca realizar un control estricto del lanzamiento, para evitar una saturación del servicio. Aunque todavía no hay información oficial sobre su lanzamiento en España, lo más probable es que siga el modelo indio: un sistema de pagos UPI, similar a Bizum, que ya está integrado en la mayoría de bancos españoles y ofrece una forma de realizar transferencias de pago instantáneas. Mark Zuckerberg, CEO de Facebook, ya anunció que se lanzaría un sistema de pagos por WhatsApp hace unos meses. La espera se debe a que se ha trabajado con reguladores bancarios de todo el mundo para que el servicio disponga de una infraestructura de servidores lo más sólida posible, así como todos los dispositivos de seguridad convenientes. El lanzamiento de WhatsApp Payments en la India, puede servir como «prueba de mercado» para futuros lanzamiento del servicio en Europa. Además, el estreno del nuevo sistema de pagos se realiza en un momento ideal, ya que los organismos sanitarios de todo el mundo desaconsejan el uso del dinero en efectivo para frenar el contagio del COVID-19.
