The Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada announced it is funding research on various topics, including privacy risks associated with Wi-Fi hot spots, MobileSyrup reports. The research project will examine privacy policies, the information leaked at Wi-Fi hot spots, and identify the ways malicious users attack vulnerabilities. The study will conclude with a public hot spot report card, as well as recommendations to address any issues. Other funded projects include a study on the privacy ramifications when parents share information about their children on social media and the privacy implications of smart cities and children’s smart toys.
