Gaming! It's all fun and games until....
Jun 16, 2020 Season 1 Episode 19
Leena Kuusniemi and Ben Siegel

Gaming! It’s all fun and games, right? Not really. There are hidden dangers in online gaming especially - dangers that many individuals don’t consider. When you are stuck at home for many weeks, chances are that you have downloaded one or more gaming apps on your phone, or purchased a game console for your living room either for yourself or for your kids. 

Games are hot. But games are also great sources of data collection from all corners of the world and all levels of society. What kind of data are collected? How are they used? Is it all transparent? And of course - how do we tell the children? And even more importantly: protect the children. That, and more, in this episode of Serious Privacy, Paul and K discuss the dark side of gaming with two gaming and privacy professionals Leena Kuusniemi and Ben Siegel.

Join us to discuss a worldwide multibillion dollar industry, ranging from tic-tac-toe to Minecraft - and the age and the sophistication of players are equally extensive and diverse. In this episode, we discuss the most downvoted post on Reddit, ads in gaming, mobile notice, fragmented regulations, and how to educate your kids about the dangers of gaming.
