WhatsApp: The Not-So-Private Privacy App, Prohibitory Automated Resume Filters, and Some Updates About Apple — on DevNews!

Listen to the season finale of the DevNews podcast today!

In this episode, we have updates about more Apple App Store drama, and Apple’s planned surveillance features to battle child sexual abuse material. Then we speak with Lydia X. Z. Brown, attorney, disability justice activist and policy counsel for the Center for Democracy and Technology, about a study that found that automated resume filter tools exclude millions from jobs, including those with disabilities. And then we speak with Craig Silverman, reporter at Propublica, about an investigative piece he co-authored that details how Facebook undermines its privacy promises on WhatsApp.
