Stanford Launches Site Focused On App Privacy

The Stanford Center has launched a new website, WhatApp.org, where users and experts can review online and mobile apps for privacy and security.

M. Ryan Calo, a residential fellow at Stanford Law School’s Center for Internet and Society, has helped design WhatApp.org with the goal of reducing the risk of computer hacking, identity theft, spam and phishing.

The reviews are being written by lawyers, computer scientists, and privacy and security experts from Stanford and other institutions.
