🕵️ Government Spying via Push Notifications

Government agencies are reportedly tracking smartphone users by monitoring push notifications through Apple's and Google's servers.

Apple and Google are reluctant to share information, sparking concerns about privacy and surveillance.

The lack of specifics about the surveillance is raising concerns about the extent and duration of the tracking.

🔒 Protecting User Data

Apple advises app developers to avoid including sensitive data in notifications and to ensure encryption of any data added to a notification payload.

However, government agencies are after metadata, which is not encrypted and contains generalized data about users, their devices, and notifications.

⚠️ Protecting Personal Data

It's important to stay informed and take steps to protect personal data, especially in light of increasing surveillance and tracking by government agencies.

Suggestions include using VPNs and being cautious about sharing personal information online.
