Description

Discover and control what data is collected about you by Internet of Things technologies (or “resources”). The Internet of Things (or “IoT”) is everywhere. It consists of a myriad of devices and technologies that collect data about us - from cameras with facial recognition and other AI algorithms, to smart speakers that record what we say, or sensors that track our mobile phones to name just a few. The IoT Assistant app helps you discover and control what data is being collected by IoT resources around you - who is collecting it, who it is shared with, and for how long it is retained. New privacy regulations in the US and Europe require people who deploy IoT resources to disclose their data collection and use practices and to also give us some control over these practices such as opting in or out of them. The IoT Assistant app provides users with a single interface through which they can discover IoT resources around them and access privacy options made available to them by these resources. If you would like to publicize the presence of one or more IoT resources in a particular area, visit our IoT Portal at iotprivacy.io to help IoT Assistant app users discover these IoT resources.
