#PrivacyofThePeople: Society and community management apps

In the latest post in our #PrivacyOfThePeople series, we look at the privacy implications of the society and community management applications that resident associations are increasingly adopting in Tier 1 and Tier 2 cities across India. We analyse the user rights from harm and consent-based frameworks, and how the upcoming data protection law may protect users.


This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at https://internetfreedom.in/privacyofthepeople-society-and-community-management-apps/

There must be a review of the technology and features of all security camera applications used in not only resident associations, but in shops, offices (in RTOs they are called ‘biometric’ cameras), and public spaces. Citizens must know what data these cameras collect, where they are stored, and with whom these data is shared. And there must be an option to opt out from this data collection. Otherwise, this will become a surveillance landscape.
