Media: Voice beta raises privacy alert

The beta version of Voice raised a privacy alert. The use of the platform requires the home address, identity documents and personal photos. Even more worrying is that the service responsible for verifying this information may use it to collect debt and help enforce law. The UK-based company HooYu's mission is to collect and verify all personal user data on Voice. Although the company claims that its privacy policies and practices are in compliance with the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), a more in-depth study of its services has found that personal data provided to HooYu can be used to identify someone (if someone Make a request), and "prevent and detect crime." It's worth noting that HooYu also offers a service called HooYu research (a visualization tool) that connects users, businesses, and addresses.
